By Keith W. Lofthouse
The darkest topics – violent crime (‘Blood purple and the 8th Dwarf’), suicide (‘Pin again Your Ears and Smile’) and the spectre of incest (‘Terror by way of Torchlight’) – are tempered through the sunshine (‘If Horses might Talk’, ‘Old Lady’s Dream’, ‘Crown for the Coronet’). yet even within the lightest, darkness lurks.
No personality in those stories – the overzealous cop in ‘Sweet Transvestite’, the brutal husband in ‘Cutting Board Killer’, the mysterious guy at the run in ‘Strangers on a airplane’ – will cease to sniff the roses. The convicted rapist / killer in ‘Devil’s Doorway’ will not often get the opportunity … yet is the demise Row inmate accountable, or innocent?
The fact is that the realm could be a darkish position. It turns bleak and forbidding within the futuristic ‘Thirty11’ while, thankfully, none people can be around.
The reader, i'm hoping, will think for the sufferers: the terrified eyewitness of ‘Snitch within the Ditch’, the bullied boy within the ‘Sheriff of Rottenham’, and desolate paraplegic in ‘Crushed’. they might see humour in ‘Nuts at Christmas’, and the unhappiness at the back of it. ‘Day of Reckoning’ and ‘Rush Hour’ are supposed to be enjoyable.
This is a publication when you love animals. they've got very important roles to play in lots of of those stories – as does the abnormal insect.
It is the writer’s so much earnest want that no tale will finish how you imagine it might.
