Review of Scarce Resources by Brendan Detzner

Scarce Resources
by
Brendan Detzner

The devil plays tennis with the last man in Chicago while a brontosaurus looms in the distance. An elderly blind woman thinks she's feeding the birds. A music industry insider falls short of immortality and makes a shocking confession. A girl with sharp teeth and an excellent sense of smell shops at a convenience store, avoiding chocolate. And fourteen more. ""Detzner's writing asks all the right questions, and answers just enough of them to leave your mind toying with the ideas for days ... If you're looking for cheap scares, look elsewhere. This is a writer that deals in an uneasy fear, in the unknown but somehow personal."" Derek Gettys, The Arson Club ""....stories of unholy compromise, quiet madness and apocalypses both great and small... If you're not familiar with his work, these eighteen stories are a great overview of what he's been doing in the always flexible horror genre."" Michael Penkas, Black Gate

This is not my typical style book but it was interesting if you like horror stories.  The author keeps you reading even if you're not sure what you're reading.  Worth the read.  This is the first book I've read by this author

I rate this book 3 1/2 stars
