Another free book from Concord Free Press", to read and pass along.

From the back cover:

THIS BOOK IS FREE
By taking a copy, you agree to give away money to a local charity, someone who needs it, or a stranger in the street. Where the money goes and how much you give--that's your call. When you're don, pass this book on to someone else (for free, of course), so that they can give. It adds up.

I love the concept of Concord Free Press, and I make an effort to request every book they publish so I can participate in their experiment in charitable giving. Of course this means that I often receive books that stray far from the types of books I normally seek out for myself. This is one of those books. While not terrifying in the way that much modern horror writing can be, the two stories included in this book are distinctly creepy and unsettling, and can certainly be considered horror stories, which isn't a genre that I typically enjoy reading.

I found these stories to be disturbing and neither provides what I would consider a satisfactory resolution. They are well written, and they provide vivid imagery and a strong sense of place. So while I can't honestly say that I enjoyed these stories because of their unsettling nature, I must admit that I appreciated that they are well written, and I found them sparking a certain contemplation of the issues that they raise.
