I absolutely love historical fiction and read a lot of it; I love to learn history this way. I also enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and non-fiction science.
Everything That's Underneath is a short story collection that explores the ignored, dark spaces, and things we try to not see or remember. With this unifying theme, the stories ranged from horror, to grotesque to strangely unsettling. With all short story collections, there were some stories that I loved and some I could live without. With this collection, there were also some stories that were very similar, like the same darkness was affecting different people .
Some of my favorite stories included The Dream Eater and Split Tongues. These stories were a little longer and really allowed me to get into them and wonder about the darkness and what it's intentions really are. In these stories I was also able to relate to the characters better and feel their interactions with the forces at play. Overall, an intriguing group of stories that explores themes of family, grief, sexuality and the draw of the unknown.
