These stories range from the horrific to thesurreal, and prove Michael Laimo to be a compelling stylist andrelentless storyteller. None have been collected previously and someare original to this volume.It features an introduction by Brian Keene.Summer Fling is not just another monster tale, and wraps up with aresolution that is as wicked as it is unexpected. In The Rash, theauthor re-examines a personal nightmare to create a universal taleof biological terror—illuminating that moment when we discoversomething is going very wrong with our own bodies. Other tales whichexplore this territory are Contact Lenses and Scarred for Life.Laimo uses his knowledge as a native New Yorker to summon up afrightening and memorable subway ride in End of the Line. Then heswitches gears in Something in the Air to examine a small townvisited by a very original kind of evil.Other tales range from the playful, such as Aftermath, to theextreme, as in The Exploitations of George Frederick Leighton, andthe oddly experimental I Exude in Partials.In addition, a new novelette, The Startling Supplements to BrioneHeloises Depictions appears here for the first time. Written as anhomage to the work of H. P. Lovecraft, it reveals yet another aspectof Laimos admirable talent.
