These stories were good. Gloria shocked me. The Ghost was horrific and I felt the protagonist's anger. But Necessary was my favorite. Really good story about a woman who steals from a man to get money for her family. AL seems to write about people's pain really well.
The author wrote these stories as advertising for forthcoming novels, according to the From the Author section. I want to know when the books are coming out. The first story, Asmodeus, is named after the demon that is possessing a little girl. It's a leisurely stroll through an exorcism. Makes me wonder about the full book.
The second story, The Bank Job, was fast and scary! I liked how there was humor in it a little bit at the same time as being frightening. I hope the books come out soon.
