Features my story "Such Bitter Business"
What Dennis Kriesel said about my story:
"Such Bitter Business," by
G. W. Thomas, follows a book collector after a rare book. This book is
an evil magic book, and this book collector carries a gun, knows magic,
and is pursuing an alien slug-creature that can take over bodies. Does
this sound weird to you? It is, but believe it or not, it works. Thomas
blends healthy doses of horror, fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, and thriller
together to make a fascinating read. This has the flair and feel of detective
noir, right down to the first-person narration. Thomas provides enough
detail to let the reader know what's going on, but resists putting in so
much that the story drags. A great balance of genres so smooth you'd think
it happens all the time, Thomas provides something unique and original.
Read this story; it's my second-favorite in the anthology."
