Review by: Kim Leland on July 12, 2011 :
I enjoyed this one from beginning to end, and find Mr. Schaffer's sense of humor to be wonderfully twisted. I'm not normally a big fan of the short story, but I must say that this collection was very enjoyable. I am looking forward to a full-length novel from the author.

Review by: J. H. Sked on July 02, 2011 :
This was a great read for me, and if you like your horror by turns macabre and humorous you'll probably enjoy this.

This author has a real talent for sketching out a character in just a few sentences; and hooked me from the first paragraph of the first story.

From a revenge seeking ex-junkie to the creepy heartbreak of the pale man, the stories cover a range of different subjects and styles.

I'm a fan of short stories, and I think the length was great for the stories told, with the potential for longer, different adventures for a couple of the characters.

If Mr. Schaffer goes that route, I'll be buying them.

Review by: Haresh Daswani on May 18, 2011 :
Bernard's craft in writing stories does not just stop with amazing stories that keeps a reader glued to the book. He has great art in creating the tonal element and is very fluent in his ability to paint pictures with words. This is a rare craft indeed.

The greatest challenge in short stories is the ability to send the reader to another dimension, see the place, feel it, and transport. Bernard has been able to transport his reader from one place to the next, making me cringe on what will happen next. It is beyond great craft, his style puts him in the echelon of some of the best appreciated authors out there.

His craft, as displayed in the book, is an American version of Gita Mehta in The River Sutra. If that book is enjoyed (as I have really well recommended) this book gets the same fair justice.
