Review: These stories reminded me a lot of episodes of “The Twilight Zone.” They had seemingly dark undertones and always a feeling like you’re missing some deeper meaning. Several of the “stories” read more like histories of imaginary places that feel incredibly real and rich but just strange enough to be unique. I don’t know if I could really call the book enjoyable due to the creepiness factor but I was entertained enough to read the whole thing.
