    This is an amazing collection of short stories. I was pulled into the weird, unsettling mind of Lisa Dee from the very first story, "He Sees You When You're Sleeping," hooked like a fish and reeled back and forth through each story as my mind whirled in thrilling anticipation of an unexpectedly chilling, and surprising end to each story. Although not usually a cat person, I loved "Mr. McGinty," and shivered in pleased shock at the ending. "2.2.2" pulled me into the mysterious world of numbers and I found myself as tormented as the main character, desperately trying to make sense of the patterns emerging around her. One of my favourite stories in this collection was "Adrift," a slow but compelling revelation of the mysterious past of a genuinely kind but deeply tormented soul. Images from that story still reverberate in my dreams. If you want to read extremely well-written and deeply satisfying stories, then this collection of stories is for you. I can't wait to read more by this author in the future.

    After finishing Dee's collection of horror stories, "He Sees You When You're Sleeping," I was intrigued by the idea of reading another collection of her stories to see how her writing voice would change in these more autobiographical but still highly stylized stories. Her descriptions of life were so vivid that I almost felt as if I were watching a movie and the scenes were unfolding in front of my eyes. There was an unexpected, menacing undercurrent to many of these tales that was surprising but definitely thrilling. I kept thinking of Margaret Atwood, Flannery O'Connor, and Guy Vanderhaege's works as I read through this eclectic collection. My first impulse after reading through this collection is to go back and re-read Matachewan immediately to savour these unusual and surprising stories more lingeringly. For me, that is the proof of good writing. Buy this collection if you want to feel a little frisson of unease at many of the unsettling images and strange characters you will encounter within. You will enjoy immersing yourself in this world.

    Absolutely brilliant storytelling. Horton takes the reader on a journey through the dangerous, sexy, troubling world of Gothland, painting sensory rich images with his lyrical command of language. In Gothland, the reader encounters intriguing and secretive characters scarred and transformed by their war time experiences and the following revolution. Through juxtapositions of past and present, truths are revealed, truths are obscured, and the reader must piece together each tantalizing clue to discover the truth of the Major and Katyusha’s quest for Der Film. This is a book that demands to be read again and again and each time the reader will discover new and imaginative ideas and images to be swept up in. A must-read book for anyone looking for a great book to start 2014 off with a bang not a whimper.
