Here’s what he had to say about Little Deaths: “In Little Deaths, John F. D. Taff give the reader plenty of variety. Sci-Fi, erotic horror, humorous horror, body horror, an urban legend tie-in, and plenty more are all represented. Highlights for me included: “Calendar Girl” (deeply disconcerting look at privacy and submission), “The Closed Eye of a Dead World” (an absolute romp, loved this one…it reminded me of the good parts of From a Buick 8 and Lisey’s Story, but scarier), “Helping Hands” (this one was like something from the glory days of Weird Tales), “In Men, Black” (I have a very, very good idea which anthology Taff wrote this for, because I had a story in it! I thought this story was excellent), “The Mellified Man” (another superb story; I’d read it before in a magazine. Fascinating subject matter) and “Box of Rocks” (a great example of how using an unreliable narrator can mess with your head.) Sorry for the stream of consciousness review and dodgy punctuation! Bottom line: this is an excellent collection. I’ve recommended him to friends, but felt compelled to write a review also. Hopefully this author continues to reach new readers.”
