    1. Addison's collection of poetry and short stories leans on the dark fantasy/horror side and is sprinkled generously with some nifty (and at times funny) sci-fi.Among my favorite stories were 'The Power,' about two young girls learning how to use witchcraft via their grandmother in the wake of an attack from granny's old nemesis; 'Excerpts from the Unabridged Traveler's Guide as UFOs in Galaxy A.G.2' is a short but hysterical piece that gives light to some popular UFO myths; 'Just Passing Through' [...]

    2. Addison's winning a Horror Writer’s Association’s Bram Stoker Award® for excellence in horror is well deserved. This is a collection of poetry and prose. Addison’s poetry is somehow simultaneously visceral and melodic. Her command of meter is ideal for dark poetry and the resulting work is a dimly lit path you feel compelled to follow. Lulled by the seductive syntax of the verse, it is only at the end of the poem that you realize the character you’ve been following has come to grief.Add [...]

    3. “The Power” is a story about childhood friendship with the unreliability of youth in the belief of magic. An excellent example of a perspective we see all too infrequently, and my hands-down favorite of the collection.I’m an engineer, so I’m pretty impervious to poetry. I don’t feel like I’m a good judge of it, and therefore don’t think it appropriate for me to review the poetry in this collection in any real depth. But the flash fiction is steady and fun throughout. “Dust to Dus [...]

    4. It really baffles me this book doesn't have more reviews. It's an extremely fast and enjoyable read. The short stories are, for the most part, horror, science fiction and weird with poems in between them. If you're afraid of poetry (like I am) you'll love these. They're creepy and wonderful and evoke some beautiful imagery. The writing is straight to the point but not simplified and I was astonished how much of a backstory and characterization Ms.Addison has managed to put into so few pages. If [...]

    5. I'm neither a horror nor a short story reader generally, but there were many more flavors and I really enjoyed this collection. Particular favorite pieces were Little Red in the Hood, Artificial Unintelligence, Animated Objects, and Demon Dance.

    6. A book full of delights. Addison's stories are very creative, and the characters pull the reader into the stories. Her poetry varies from the light and silly to very dark, but all of it is affecting. Excellent book, well-recommended.

    7. This is a unique collection poetry and short fiction. The poetry is both lighthearted and dark, full of exquisite imagery, and the stories are emotionally driven expeditions into fantasy, horror and science fiction. The mix is eclectic and delightful.

    8. This is a collection of SF/F/H poems and short stories that is up for the 2012 Bram Stocker Award. Creepy, funny and imaginative!
