    Oh my god! What must it be like to live in the skewed, macabre m

    Oh my god! What must it be like to live in the skewed, macabre mind of this author of these always surprising and unexpectedly chilling little gems of stories? If Lisa Dee's stories are any indication, then she has a truly delightfully warped mind. Her first story, "He Sees You When You're Sleeping," is a twisted little tale about the unexpected dangers and consequences of familial love and childhood fantasies. Dee's dark recreation of Santa's Village and rewriting of the Santa myth was compelling. I shivered mournfully at the pathos of the ending. I don't think I'll get the images from this story out of my mind for a very long time. "Stefano" will bring a chill of fear to every parent's heart as it explores the worst nightmare of every loving parent who has tenderly kissed his or her child goodnight and then went off to their own bed. "Adrift" is one of my favourite stories in this collection. It takes the reader through a slow unwinding of an intriguingly written little mystery and tosses us to and fro until with a thrill of dark delight we understand the truth of what is going on. It's sad but beautifully written. Oddly enough, although not a cat person, "Mr. Mcginty," was one of my favourite stories. It was short but the ending was eerie and made me laugh in shock but also shiver simultaneously- a feat not usually possible. I hope Lisa Dee keeps on writing because these short stories of hers are well-worth reading and images from them will figure in my subconscious for a very long time.

    Some are better than others.

    I think that, though some are better than others, none are mind blowing. The ideas are good for every story but it fells like we didn't get enough content in most stories. Mr Mginty and Stefano were the exceptions. Adrift as well maybe. The others were abrupt and incomplete. Either in an attempt to be enigmatic or as a style choice I don't know, but I really hate that. If you're going to tell me a story, awesome. Let's do it. But I hate it when you tell me a partial story and expect me to finish it for you. The ideas are yours so take me all the way or leave me home.
