Glimpses: The Best Short Stories of Rick Hautala

Glimpses: The Best Short Stories of Rick Hautala - Rick Hautala I saw this book for free shortly after his death and snatched it up. I am very, very glad I did.

I am not a fan of horror, or at least not the horror that I've read from the horror section of the bookstore. I find that I've become rather desensitized to it. Unfortunately, the majority of the stories in this collection achieved little in the way of frightening me. And yet, I could not put them down. The stories in here are interesting--and I don't mean "interesting" in the way that some people use it as a substitute when they can't think of anything good to say, I really mean interesting. I think my favourites are "Blossoms in the Wind", "Colt .24", and "Ghost Trap".

Maybe I'm more of a Dark Fantasy girl.

Either way, I very much enjoyed this read. Each story is well crafted, the description is impeccable and full of theme. I will be looking for more from his backlist for sure.
