With his first collection, As Summer’s Mask Slips, Gordon B. White scores a bull’s eye. If the stories seem eclectic at first, ranging from folk-horror to surrealist horror fairy tales, a strong vision and impeccable story-telling holds them together in a tightly coherent volume. A master of the uncanny and strong atmospheres, Gordon B. White will undoubtedly gain his seat as a true master of the horrific and weird.
