I Just read Gary McMahon’s “What They Hear in the Dark”, a signed and numbered chapbook from Spectral Press, coming out January 2011. Gary has proven that not all silence is golden, and not all rooms are equal. He has a grip on the range of emotion that comes with loss, and how sometimes what you don’t say hurts more than what you can. Be prepared to have him take hold of you, by the throat, and not let go until your vision blurs, and your kness become weak. http://spectralpress.wordpress.com/

I just finished this book and Angel’s writing bites, and by that I mean it has some real teeth, and once they’ve taken hold of you don’t let go until the tale is finished.
A problem I encountered reviewing it was envy, and thinking, “Damn, this guy’s real good!!”, the flip side is that good writing is enjoyable, and keeps the art alive. I especially liked “Halloween, 2032”, which is reminiscent of Bradbury, and has the same haunting qualities some of his tales have. All in all a very enjoyable book, and with 25 short stories there is bound to be something for everybody here!! This book is available from Panic Press http://panicpress.org/
