FIVE STAR REVIEW FROM W. J. ROSSER FOR SATAN'S TOYBOX: TOY SOLDIERS


Read this great review from W.J. Rosser for SATAN'S TOYBOX: TOY SOLDIERS! There is just a snippet here. The rest is on his blog. Check out the other reviews and valuable information he has there as well. Mr. Rosser also has a link there to purchase a great book of his own. Stacey Turner says it's a great read. I believe what Stacey says!

More Evil Playthings, A Review of Angelic Knight's Toy Soldiers Anthology



I think I've figured out why these books are so damn disturbing.  There's something burned into our consciousness about toys that demand innocence and joy.  Yet, some of the best horrific imagery is the kind that takes these aspects of our culture and somehow transforms them into something sinister.  The strangest thing is that it doesn't take a lot of work.  A little scary music in the background can turn an innocuous rocking chair into the tool of the Prince of Darkness.  A close-up makes a smiling monkey with cymbals look like an incarnation from the gates of Hell.  Sometimes I think Joy and Terror come from the exact same place in our collective psyche, as though toys and fun represent nothing but escape from the evil in our world . . .
