Schow, David J.: Lost Angels (07.10.07)

Five short stories of varying length which are all first rate. Schow not only has a way with words but also a highly developed
and somewhat macabre magination. An earlier collection 'Seeing Red' which I must have read well over a decade ago was,
if I recall correctly, rather gorier and scarier than this collection. There is a certain calm to these rales even though they are
dealing with the supernatural. I recommend this to anyone who likes the stories from an earlier time of Vernon Lee and
M.R. James; anyone who wants the written equivalnet of Rob Zombie (is that really his name?) will be sadly disappointed.
