A Nest Of Nightmares by Lisa Tuttle, part 2
Tuttle is one of those writers who don't like being called horror writers despite writing horror.
The Other Mother
This was a significant failure. What's gesso? A wife and mother has perpetual resentment. The idiot whiny woman sees her children as an insurmountable problem.
“Worn out with the effort of keeping a lid on her anger.”
“Lost whatever talent she once had.”
This leaves you incredulous. What was it about? What was it for? Logic and meaning is a forlorn hope.
The Memory Of Wood
A whiny woman buys a chest. Bad stuff goes down. Why are all Tuttle's female characters so useless?
A Friend In Need
A woman encounters a face from the past who causes chilling implications. This was nice and ominious.
Stranger In The House
Another racist tale with no terrible finality.
No blissful terror.
