Reader Ratings & Reviews
There is nothing sweet about Sweet Darkness, the latest feat from skilled writer and editor Richard Logsdon. Darkness, a collection of fifteen short stories for the very mature reader, is an exploration of the world of the lost and the damned. In fact, in one of the collection’s sharpest pieces, “In Hell,” the narrator describes the work’s hero, Sandra, and the antagonist, Father Harold Blackstone, as individuals “absorbing each other’s darkness.” And in many respects that is exactly what each of the characters who inhabit these stories does. They are people, who are caught up, some by choice and others by circumstance, in the brutality of devil worship, pornography, sexual obsession, and sacrifice.
