My story in Behold: Oddities, Curiosities and Undefinable Wonders got a nice call out in a review of the anthology by Cemetery Dance (that’s the Luke Spooner illustration to the story above):
“A Ware That Will Not Keep” by John F.D. Taff. Quite possibly the most unique story in the bunch. Great use of a nonfiction setting that we’re all familiar with but with an otherworldly component. A man held captive in a Nazi concentration camp slowly creates a living golem made of clay—using mud and the ashes of the dead—with the hope that it will help him and every other innocent soul there to escape the clutches of those who oppress them. The instructions given to the golem? To kill everyone against him and not to let him die. The creature is a dedicated servant to the extreme.
Get this book to tide you over before the onslaught of other Taff work begins!
