In the Shadow of the Gargoyle based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Brian Hodge's story is pretty much the only bright spot in a very cloudy collection of tales surrounding the myths of the gargoyle. With writers like Lucy Taylor, Brian Lumley, Charles Grant, John Skipp, Nancy Holder, Caitlin Kiernan & Christa Faust...I anticipated some great writing...WRONG!! Just a real mish mash of stories that threw in gargoyle's into the mix. Very dissappointing.
