A collection of finger nail yanking Noir from the editor of Yellow Mama, Cindy Rosmus. Her tales meander in and around familiar streets and bars, passing the hometown walking dead, witches and trick or treaters, their bags loaded with razor blade filled apples. Her stories take root in that burned patch of ground where nightmare and waking life coexist, each lyrical and presented lovingly like an exquisite bouquet of dead flowers. The collection is illustrated by Coates "Keith" Walker, the premier collagist of scientific surrealism, conspiracy and modern irony. Cindy's stories and Keith images scream and moan in the same key.
