Garden of Fiends
Garden of Fiends: Tales of Addiction Horror - Johann Thorsson,Max Booth III,Glen Krisch,Jessica McHugh,Kealan Patrick Burke,Mark Matthews,Jack Ketchum

 * The reality of addiction is darker than any fiction. *

"Drinking and drugging provide the height of human experience.

It's the promise of heaven on earth,

but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness."

 Before I read even one story in this 'reality horror' anthology - Mark Matthews had me crying so hard that I could barely see. He presents an addiction anthology with compassion, casting no aspersions on anyone. I wan't to meet Mark Matthews, and give him the tightest hug ever.

 

"Imagine yourself drowning and being told not to swim to the surface for air. Obsessions should be so mild."

 

 

I'll have the full review posted soon - I was going over my notes for this review, and I'm bawling again.

of course it was obvious that at some point, the most sadistic nasty nightmare of a human being in this book was going to be sent to kill Dominika; the only good news is that any plan to push Dominika in front of a train or just make her disappear has been rejected, and instead it seems that Eva has been tasked with making it look like a revenge killing by French Intelligence, over something horrible that happened earlier. I think this gives Dominika a better chance to see it coming, than if they were to just push her into traffic at a stoplight. if there's a full-on fight between the two women, it's going to be something to remember...

Dominika is running maybe one extra dangerous game more than anyone else in this story. it's going to be interesting to see which dangerous game blows up in which face.

saw Wonder Woman today--loved it!--and I love this book, so there's an empowering voltage running through me, hopefully until the end of the day (tomorrow will probably ruin it, but that's life). bonus: tax return money always equals extra books! best day I've had since reading the finale of Black Water Lilies!
