Exploring Dark Short Fiction #2 for Kaaron Warren. This Primer is second in the series and a great study of another author of short stories, highlighting some of her best work and explaining the author’s importance. This is an indie book, and amazing quality. All the sections are illustrated, and besides the short story fiction, there is an interesting interview, essay written by the author, commentary on the works, and more. 5 stars.
