Midwest Book Review

Black Pockets and Other Dark Thoughts by George Zebrowski is an impressively entertaining collection of this accomplished author's memorable short stories of horror gathered together under one cover, and includes the novella "Black Pockets," which was written especially for this anthology of dark fantasy. Combining metaphorical lore and a born storyteller's skills, Black Pockets contributes works analyzing personal, political, metaphysical, and vividly intimate stories ranging from the dwellings of Gore Vidal in “The Coming of Christ the Joker,” to the mind of Tim and the mysterious girl in “First Love, First Fear.” Black Pockets is very highly recommended reading, particularly for horror fantasy enthusiasts for its deft authorship of original and highly evocative tales that will haunt your dreams long after the volume is finished and set back upon the shelf.
