    MOBI Lost Places eBook ó Á garden home.co lost ebok, places download, Lost Places PDFEPUBMixed bag so than I remembered from my initial reading of this collection years ago Still there are some real gems in here and when Unsworth is at his best he's a goddamned beast Also no real stinkers to be found it is just that this goodish portion of the stories fall suarely into the mediocreforgettable basketOf particular note are A Different Morecambe son's pestering his dad about driving him to titular town Only they don't seem to have the same place in mind They do end up there and the entire town is akin to this poorly constructed uncanny mask all semblances of familiarity normality slowly falling off as the story progresses And the town itself is not the only thing that is like a badly constructed replacement Remarkably creepy stuff this one would be right at home as a vintage Twilight Zone epi

    MOBI Lost Places eBook ó Á garden home.co lost ebok, places download, Lost Places PDFEPUBHorror at its best takes the mundane and every day and then corrupts it through a distorting lens beyond what it’s built to withstand The safety of the normal world is left behind replaced by a tangential edgy unfamiliarity Allied of course to a heightened sense of skin crawling fear but not necessarily gore although it has its place but only in the right measure Each of the eighteen stories in Lost Places Simon Kurt Unsworth’s first collection from the excellent Ash Tree Press of Canada carves moments out of life and then stretches them out to beyond their and the character’s natural endurance Note in this review not every story will be touched upon but representative examples will be highlighted insteadAt the heart of Simon Kurt Unsworth’s writing is a temporal and spatial disruption a dislocation of reality inflicted on characters whose worlds and realities have been fractured The veils between this world and the one next door are often much thinner

    MOBI Lost Places eBook ó Á garden home.co lost ebok, places download, Lost Places PDFEPUBWorld Fantasy Award nominee Simon Kurt Unsworth releases Lost Places his first collection of wide ranging supernatural and fantastic tales Unsworth is a competent and confident writer who comfortably manages to immerse and captivate the reader in highly articulate prose and in a series of stories that maintain an unsettling and macabre charm throughout This collection is a veritable mixed bag of themes and tales exploring the darker side of the human and perhaps not so human psyche Highlights for this reviewer are A Different Morecombe where a jaunt to a seaside town slips into the sinister as the safe and familiar is slowly eroded; The Baking of Cakes is an exuisite study of analogy and loss that truly gives forum to Unsworth's melancholy narrative and the taut When the World Goes uiet where the only true escape from the undead may reuire the ultimate sacrifice Plenty linger in the psyche but this reviewer will leave the reader to decide which tale cuts deep
