Thanks for reposting these, Frank. I'm working on a short review of THE LONG WAY that should show up there and a couple other places soon. I have a bunch more ready for another Ramsey short story article but I figure I should spread them out a little bit.

They're really good, Matt. I was especially interested in the short stories you chose. The Brood in particular. I also love The Brood, but I remember reading that Ramsey didn't like the story too much on account that he felt it was inadvertently a pulp story he never intended to write. Or did I imagine that? Keep 'em coming, Matt.

Yes, it is that's what is so great about it. It starts with bleak urban realism and psychological despair and ends with vampire moths. Back of the net!

I didn't realize he was unhappy with "The Brood",I found it lyrical and unsettling. I found it hard choosing a top ten because I like so many of them.
