You will ask how I remember all of this, conversations and small details of events that happened decades ago. The answer is that though it was only after this last visit to Dr. Gold’s that I thought to actually write it down, I have been telling myself this story again and again for the last thirty years, taking it apart and unpacking it, examining each detail as I gather brokenhearted lovers do, though I have never had my heart broken and only rarely been a lover. You will say that remembering a story is not the same as remembering the thing itself. That, I do not have an answer for. Perhaps I am wrong about things. It would not surprise me.

i really liked this more-than-a-vampire tale. it’s a leisurely-paced story long enough to fall into, and the writing is richly textured with relatable characters, a nice balance between ordinary and supernatural horrors, and some dark ambiguity to chew on pleasurably afterwards.

there were a handful of odd details that didn’t pay off, so i’m wondering if maybe this is part of a bigger thing? if it is, i would like to read it, so someone alert me if this is the case. PLEASE AND THANK YOU.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
