There are some stories here, like El Santero, Magna Mater and A Drop of Ruby that are good -very, very good. Others, like Burning Names and In his Wake did not personally appeal to me as much as some of the others. I would characterize the individual efforts as a bit uneven, but the volume overall as definitely worth a read, and Goodfellow as an author to follow, read & re-read. ( )

First words
As David Mueller crossed the dead lawn to his father's house, he thought the white, withered face in the upstairs bedroom window - his window - was a leftover Halloween decoration, and it struck him as strange that his father would have put such a thing in April, but then people do weird things right before they die, and Dad was weirder than most. (Baby Teeth)
The sun beat down just as hard on both sides of the San Ysidro crossing, but something in the dirty sky ate the warm yellow light before it fell on Tijuana. (El Santero)
The days flow by as blurs of feverish color: rising in tarnished gold, crashing and bleeding out in a scarlet haze, clotted with violet shadows. (A Drop of Ruby)
I am an ugly man. (Champagne Room)
On the highest, holiest night in Tenochtitlan, it was unseemly for the people to be out in the streets celebrating, and the jaguar-priests feared that so much joy could only arouse the wrath of the god they honored. (Feast of the Ixiptla)
