    Todd Russell has written a wonderfully entertaining and gruesomely bizarre collection of short stories I will not soon forget. My skin crawled, my hair stood on end and I even slept with a light on - but don't tell anyone please. ;) I am eager to read more of his work and I look forward to adding it to my collection. Well done, Todd Russell.
