Walk down the alleyway that scares you, intrigues you, and one from which you don’t know if you will return. Amelia Gray writes stories that echo nightmares, but manages in few perfectly-chosen words, to make the ephemeral into a narrative. Her worlds sear the imagination and will linger long after the short time it takes to read the story. – Ms.Alderman
From http://www.brazosbookstore.com/ A woman creeps through the ductwork of a quiet home. A medical procedure reveals an object of worship. A carnivorous reptile divides and cauterizes a town. Amelia Gray’s curio cabinet expands in “Gutshot,” where isolation and coupling are pushed to their dark and outrageous edges. A master of the macabre, Gray’s work is not for the faint of heart or gut: lick at your own risk.
