This collection of psychological horror novelas hits a metaphysical, metafiction dream state that makes me want to call Lucius Shepard the Borges of horror. This book came out in 2005, and I've poked at it over a period of years - not because it was bad, but because each novella seemed complete and not to be followed up quickly or eaten like chocolate chips. Shepard approached hot current event topics, quickly. He was certainly one of the first to set a story at ground zero. His story, "A Walk in the Garden" blew me away - it's depiction of not-the-Iraq-wars and an odd and vindictive Garden of Eden was very visual, stunning and emotional. Many of the stories approach religion, traditional or as a construct of a human power structure. More thought provoking than scary, this collection is definitely worth a read.
