I loved this book, I am already an avid fan of LA Banks & Tananarive Due and read almost everything they write. I have recently begun reading selections by Brandon Massey. These three writer epitomize the Black experience in this book with their influences of African American folk beliefs. Plus, they were damn good stories. I appreciate a good sci fi/fantasy/horror story that doesn't insult my intelligence and makes me want to do research on folk religions & past beliefs.
