Well, oh well. So very rare, an author of true, raw talent.
First I read Dancing lessons, which pulled me in, reeled me to search for more. Often times you read a gem, only to discover that the writer has tricked you, written one amazing tale, only to deflate you like a popped ballon with the balance of his work. Not so with Aaron Polson. simply the best.
These tales will shock and delight. A masterful weave, from an honest to goodness horror conjurer.
