In the race for the future, time has no boundaries
This anthology is a collection of four horror stories that in some way always defy your expectations. Scott presents vivid characters that are instantly interesting, allowing is to have a vested interest in their welfare as the tale unfolds.
Scott merges the context of faith into his horror in a way that is unique and non-threatening. The priest in "Fetch" may or may not have what he needs to save himself and a friend from the evil that would claim their souls. Can the nun in "Power In The Blood" survive her encounter with a burgeoning horror through the power of God?
Scott also does an excellent job taking his stories in unexpected directions that can be quite chilling. In "The Good Samaritan" a pair of women learn that the best way to provide roadside aid can sometimes be by delivering a good old-fashioned ass-whippin'. And "The Good Doctor" learns that making a living on the edge of the supernatural holds more danger than he counted upon.
All in all Through A Glass, Darkly is an an enjoyable read that will resonate in your mind long after the book is done.
I liked the concept of this collection: a creepy bookstore where all is not as it seems and the "customers" get more than they expected. The third story was the best in my opinion. It was the longest and most developed, where as the other two were just shy of flash fiction. But I enjoyed all three and look forward to more stories in this setting.
