Angel Zapata has a way with drawing you in to a story and keeping you there – even though you cringe, you crave more words. From the atmospheric crime horror-noire of The Mouth of Babes, to the subtle horror of Surrogate Fruit, and a bite of zombie lore with compassion in Dead Flames, this collection is a taste of the author’s writing career from 2008 to the 2010. You don’t have to be a horror fan to love Zapata’s work. He finds the sick and twisted amongst what at first appears normal, and humanity in the most bleak circumstances. If you like prose that paints a picture, tingles the spine, and leaves you wanting more, The Man of Shadows is highly recommended for you.
