Land of Bones is the fantastic new short story collection written by Glenn Rolfe. In this collection you will find stories that will make you laugh, make your skin crawl, and break your heart, often all at the same time. Glenn has quickly risen through the ranks to become one of my favorite authors because of his ability to make you care about his characters as if they were your own friends or family. I’m continuously blown away by the fact he can do this with not only a novel but with a short story as well. I loved Not In Kansas Anymore, a throwback to some of the best old-school vampire stories out there. Welcome to Paradise is like Natural Born Killers meets Romeo and Juliet, a Christmas love story for the depraved bits in all of us horror fanatics. In Avenging Kitten a killer gets some payback (Anyone who has ever loved and lost a pet in a horrible way will appreciate this story). With Charley Sings The World Away we experience a father's despair as he watches his baby girl on the day of the apocalypse, can someone please pass the tissues. We get to catch up with Lee Buhl (The Haunted Halls) as he returns to Maine and faces some demons of his own in Death Lights. And then there’s The Rooster, probably the best story in this book. This one hurt. A lot. Brought back feelings I thought I had come to terms with from some personal losses of my own. Fuck. You. Cancer. All in all this is a great collection, I highly recommend this 5 star read.
