Here’s a copy of the review:
A Rivetting Best In Genre Horror Anthology From Erik Henry Vick
Surreal and constantly surprising, Devils is clearly the work of a writer who knows what he’s doing with Vick taking us to the depths of devilish depravity and beyond. Delivering sharp, and above all compelling nuggets of short, but perfectly framed works of fiction these are stories to be read with the light on and will linger in your memory for days and weeks to come. Short story writing is an art that few authors master but here Vick turns brevity to his advantage with barb sharp stucco prose and deft characterization. It’s cutting and clever and he has clearly mastered the art of expanding on any given moment. It’s most evident in his opening story, The Devil, where we find ourselves staring into the eyes of the Devil along with his hapless protagonist and in Vengeance when Rick finds himself contemplating the cost of his revenge. All in all, there’s no wanton wittering with each story punching above its word count and each one beggaring reflection as we are left dwelling on the different manifestations of evil.
Powerful, clever and above all highly entertaining Devils introduces an exciting new literary voice to a popular genre and is recommended without reservation.
