DAVE ZELTSERMAN's 21 TALES was written between 1992 and 2006 and culled from such diverse pages as EQMM, New Mystery Magazine, Thuglit, and Out of the Gutter to name a few. Besides the sharp prose and unpredictability of the plots, I was impressed with the author taking the time to introduce each tale with some insight behind their creation. This collection is for the reader who loves to have the proverbial rug yanked out from under them which Mr. Zeltserman is exceptionally good at. Top collection.
