Review: Hammers on Bone

Hammers on Bone (Persons Non Grata) - Cassandra Khaw

Love the prose and characters in this one, but it felt a little thin on plot. More like the outline of a story not quite completely fleshed out. 

 

Conceptually, this is another Lovecraft inspired tale with far better writing. The main character feels like one with a lot of opportunities for future stories.

 

Good, but not as compelling as some of Khaw's other stories.
