Often the most powerful and moving stories are generated by writers who return time and again to a particular idea, theme, or image. Obsession in a writer's imagination can lead to accomplishment or to self-destruction. Consider Poe and his pale, dead bride; his fascination with confinement and mortality; his illness and premature death. Or Flannery O'Connor's far less soul-crushing fondness for peacocks. Some writers pay a high price for their obsessions, while others maintain a crucial distance. Whichever the case, obsessions can produce compelling fiction.

Little Visible Delight is an anthology of original stories in which eleven authors of dark fiction explore some their most intimate, writerly obsessions.

4.0 Uneven but Worth It (with one exception)
This is a pretty good anthology of strange tales about obsession. There are two brilliant stories, a few good ones, and one absolute piece of bullshit. The two best stories are Calligraphy by James Everington and This Many by S.P. Miskowski, the latter being one of the most chilling ghost stories...
