THIS COLLECTION INCLUDES:


Crawlspace

Fooling around on your wife can be hazardous to your health.
Jusk ask Tom. He's a man with a lot to juggle: a frustrated wife, a secret new girlfriend, and the unpleasant task of trying to keep his deteriorating vintage farmhouse from falling down around him.
Now with his wife out of town for the week, Tom is eager to get busy under the covers with his beautiful new lover - but first there's something he has to finish up in...the Crawlspace.

Whatever Possessed You?

A strange encounter and a cryptic message leaves Gerard Faust a changed man. Now a novel he can't remember writing is burning up the sales charts, but is something other than his own talent lurking within?

ArborEATum

When a band of westward pioneers - lost, starving, and desperate -stumbles upon an unlikely oasis in the middle of a barren prairie, Micah wonders if his family has finally caught a lucky break...or does this new Garden of Eden hide a forgotten terror behind a veil of earthly delights?

Curtains for Love

When Claire and James move into a beautiful Victorian home together, she soon discovers that he is being seduced by a secret from his past, one thought buried long ago.

Gertrude

"Tell me something interesting about yourself."
"Well, I have a symbiotic twin named Gertrude. She lives in a small cavity under my ribcage, next to my spleen. If I lie still in bed at night, I can hear her. I think she might be crying."
So begins this short twisted tale where an obvious lie faces off with the truth.

Black Door

William and his brothers are on their way to summer camp. But when a wrong turn leads them to an abandoned campground, things start to get weird in this nail-biting and suspenseful short story.

The Mole People Beneath the City

Late at night in the subway, a little girl and her father wait for a train that runs deep beneath New York City. It will be a ride they never forget.

Pay Back

Stephen Hill has been heaping abuse on poor Joe King since second grade.
Now they're grown men with nothing in common, and Joe still patiently endures Stephen's unrelenting ridicule. But when friendship is only a matter of perspective, PAY BACK might be just around the corner in this irreverent and darkly humorous tale of revenge.

Nose Hears

A man thinks he might be losing his mind when he starts to hear voices inside of his nose.

The Package

When a world-famous personality discovers there's a way to enlarge his "package" to become the world's biggest, he finds it an opportunity too enormous to resist.

  Evans-Light | Sep 30, 2013 |
As usual, I received this book for free. Not as usual, I have no idea why or from whence. It showed up in the mail, which isn't unusual, but I can't account for its presence on my shelf. Whatever the case, it was free. Despite that happy happenstance, I give my candid thoughts below.

The content of this book is straightforward horror pulp. In the tradition of those epic magazines of the 50s and 60s, Light brings us a collection of quick hits designed to entertain and horrify in small easily digested bits.

On the positive side of the ledger, Light's works are reasonably unique. In some cases he goes back to old standards, but in general his stories are original and thrilling. From a narrative standpoint, he also does a good job of building tension and painting a narrative picture. He has the building blocks of a set of solid stories at his disposal.

On the negative side, there is a tendency to go too far. I understand that in general pulp is rather brash, but I have to admit that when flesh starts rending and blood starts splurting that it tends to lose me. Evans also has a tendency to telegraph his stories' endings through overly-revealing titles and early missteps in the story. One is seldom as surprised as one would hope with an Evans story. Lastly, the writing lacks a certain degree of polish. This is the sort of thing acquired much later in a career so I have no fears for later work, but for now the author's choice of words and phrasing is rather primitive and immature.

In summary, Light has the framework for an interesting series of stories. His view is fresh and provocative but execution is lacking. Otherwise good tales end up coming across as rather puerile. A fair amount of polish is needed here but the future is bright for this author. ( )
