In the desert life is hard. It can also be surreal. In the absence of congestion and convention, imagination takes you by the hand... or the balls. In this macabre collection of riveting tales, Jason S. Walters grabs the reins of storytelling as if it were a wild stallion. The minds of mistreated animals and people are turned inside out for us to peruse and rubberneck. He leads the reader into ambushes and acrimony, desperation and sorrow. Under or behind every rock in his wilderness lurks something hideous or heinous, building your fear upward to pinnacle heights. The actions taken by his victims, whether villains or visitors, are uncompromising and often fatal. There is no neutral ground in his western Mecca for misfits.
This one was very odd. It is a collection of short stories all set in the Black Rock Desert. From monsters to a hint of the paranormal this one was just odd. But a good odd. I would deff pick it up if this is your thing! Another one that is a solid 3 stars!
