These Last Embers

These Last EmbersThese Last Embers by Simon Strantzas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another creepy winner from one of the current masters of weird fiction. It’s a bit too short for its own good — I would have liked to learn more about what it was like to grow up in that house in order to better understand Samantha’s (and ultimately Lemule’s) burning desire to leave it all behind — but as usual for Strantzas there is a lot of striking and original imagery to be found, as well as an ending that will resonate with you long after you turn the last page. Check out this short chapbook and see why Strantzas is quickly becoming one of my favorite horror and weird fiction authors.
