A stray black cat is left wounded every night by a mysterious
attacker. But what is the cat battling and why? And in another
story a baby is found on the steps of a church she has nothing
but an owl pellet to her name. When she matures into a beautiful
woman, the local male population find that their lust has
quite unforeseen consequences...
of the Night is
a collection of two very short supernatural stories. The first
revolves around a mysterious black cat, the second around
a woman who people believe was not born of a woman, but of
owls (I ask you!)
stories are entertaining enough, but neither are resolved
fully. Now I suppose the author could claim that we can all
make up our own conclusion to these tales and that it is more
mysterious to leave the conclusion open-ended, but personally
I think the whole thing reeks of sloppy writing.
art work is much better than these stories deserve, and the
presentation is spot on - nice hardback collection with beautifully
glossy pages - but you may feel a little cheated by the content.
average stuff really. In fact, if I didn't know better I'd
think that these were a student's first attempt at writing,
not the work of the overrated Neil Gaiman.
