    Review: Obession: In the Cold, Dark Time, by Joe R. Landale wa

    Review: Obession: In the Cold, Dark Time, by Joe R. Landale was quite
    some read that was indeed interesting. The story was from one of the
    Tales of Irresistible Desire. This is one of the 19 collections of well
    written storytellers....'dark obessions.' Some of these stories may even
    be considered some type of fantasy, horror, paranormal and even some
    anthologies. Be ready for a well written read: “Medusa’s Child,” Kim
    Antieau “Hot Eyes, Cold Eyes,” Lawrence Block “Hymenoptera,” Michael
    Blumlein “She’s Not There,” Pat Cadigan “My Lady of the Hearth,” Storm
    Constantine “Calypso in Berlin,” Elizabeth Hand “Lady Madonna,” Nancy
    Holder “In the Cold, Dark Time,” Joe R. Lansdale This author story
    was just a healing through one dying person... giving words of
    encouragement to another WWI soldier who was a patient. For he was
    needed to help care for the children. Later, he was able to help with
    kind words ...another patient (soldier) who was a pilot. He told the
    solder that he "would get out of my bed and go back to the front
    lines to help the refugee children, and after the war he would help
    those who remained."
    .................................................................
    "I think again of the old man and the life he gave me back and the
    mercy he gives the children through me." I found this a very
    touching story that I really enjoyed and I would recommend you pick up
    this read. “Nunc Dimittis,” Tanith Lee “The Girl with Hungry Eyes,”
    Fritz Leiber “Tallulah,” Charles de Lint “The Snake Woman’s Lover,”
    Catherine Lundoff “Land of the Lost,” Stewart O’Nan “The Oval
    Portrait,” Edgar Allan Poe “The Hound Lover,” Laura Resnick “Barbara,”
    John Shirley “An Apiary of White Bees,” Lee Thomas “Close to You,”
    Steve Rasnic Tem “The Light That Passes Through You,” Conrad Williams
    I did notice that a few of these stories I had already read but still
    they were good in this collection. Be ready for some "irrational
    extremes, involves us in dangerous liaisons and fatal attractions . . .
    obsession consumes. Enticing, compulsively readable tales from nineteen
    masterful storytellers." If you are into "Sirens, demon
    lovers, femme fatales, and others compel our love, drawing us into
    realms of forbidden desire and uncontrollable passion" you have
    come to the right place to enjoy a good read.
