Eric J. Guignard’s collection was recommended to me, and I’m glad it was. Gives me new hope for horror fiction, being his writing can be smart and thoughtful, with only hints of horror sometimes, and still be engaging. Theres no explicit material, no stereotype monsters. Just good stories, good writing. Hoping for more of his work to be made available.

Stellar collection of short fiction stories. Some of my favorites were: *Last Days of the Gunslinger, John Amos, where it’s a cowboy gunslinger vs. alien creatures, in a flood. *Certain Sights of an Afflicted Woman, where a woman with an infected eye is able to see germs, and tries to avoid them during the plague that kills everyone else. * A Serving of Nomu Sashimi, the most horrific meal of childhood darlings * Last night, where a perpetual full moon causes perpetual werewolves And all the other ones good as well. Some of the stories were dark and bleak, some ended up being kindof uplifting, in the way of “horror happy endings”. Good rich, literary voice!

I’m currently reading this: THAT WHICH GROWS WILD by author Eric J. Guignard and Wow, this author is amazing! This is a collection of short stories and so far they are all written well and they keep your interest entirely. They are dark stories but not really horror. More emotional, and thoughtful fantasy, or whats called speculative fiction. The first story is near-future about teens finding love as the planet overheats. Then the next story is about a Western gunslinger who protects a group of children from alien monsters during a flash flood. Then the next story is the last surviving child of a witch-woman, who lives in the swamp and in losing her mind to senility. He loves her, but is confused about the so-called curse she’s placed on the town and trusts to keep everyone’s spirits—including his siblings—alive in a special way. It’s sweet. Next is a woman who is sole survivor of a plane crash in the desert and she meets someone who has come before and is just as lost as she. Very Twilight Zone! The next story is the darkest so far, about opium addiction and reliving life over and over just like the cycle of opium highs and lows. So sad. Those are the first 5 stories. More to come!
