Who am I?
Plus, Martin's 5-year-old's favorite books.
Why did Martin love this book?
I love Todd’s writing for, in particular, the darkness that flows from his pen.
This short story anthology is separated into three parts, which coincided with the title (Cold | Dark | Infinite), with each having its own sub-theme.
I will say I was most taken by the story “Afterbirth.” The name of the story belies Keisling’s intent to disgust readers, but I was still knocked on my ass by it. Readers who enjoy this collection will undoubtedly enjoy Todd’s other work.
With each story, Keisling begs to remind us that we are adrift in a sea of causality, and the undertow may take us at any time. Be sure to watch a rom-com after this one and sleep with the lights on for good measure.
