    Imaro by Charles Saunders (storyjunkie)
    storyjunkie: A sideways recommendation - the themes of alienation, the flavor of the otherworldly adversary, and the sheer stubborn of the protagonists are very similar between these works.

This is, by far, my favorite Hellboy book that's not a comic. Here we have a collection of short stories, all from talented writers, focusing on the strange world in which Hellboy operates. The stories span throughout time and location, and show our hero taking on Medusa, faeries, and even Grendel! There is even a story devoted entirely to Liz Sherman and a moment from her past.

Some of the most powerful stories in this collection focus on the government and religion (that second taking place in my home state of North Carolina) and how darker forces seem to have taken control. Something about those two tales in particular struck a chord with me, they felt a bit too possible, demon possession and all.

What I love about all Hellboy stories, many of these especially, is how the writers incorporate known folklore and mythology into the mix to create some truly terrifying tales.

On a more personal note, this was my second time reading this one, and the bookmark I used turned out to be an old friend's phone number. Brought back some memories. ( )
