Night at the Demontorium: Series One by Naima Haviland.
A collection of short stories. An exceptional collection lovingly crafted of dark, thoughtful visions of death and addictions. The writing is surprisingly refreshing considering the subject matter.
I admit to having a difficult time describing the stories without telling all, so to speak. I can say that they are quick and easy to read while leaving you thoughtful at the end. Each story evokes a different response ranging from awe to disgust.
I am very glad to have discovered Naima Haviland and hope to read more of her work. Her stories are elegant and horrible both.
Night at the Demontorium: Series One is not to be missed.
