My Review:

Just in time for Halloween, Velvet Mafia presents Sean Meriwether’s macabre story, Hands. It is a short little piece, but Meriwether–as usual–uses its simplicity to pack a lot in. It is alternately highly erotic and deeply disturbing in an almost humorous way, with the clean and concise prose I’ve come to expect from Meriwether, prose that manages to create an atmospere completely appropriate to the season. You can almost see the fog rolling in as David stands on the train platform. In the tradition of Rod Serling, Night Gallery or The Twilight Zone, this story is fun, funny and very dark. If you like a little of the macabre mixed with your erotica, this five minute read will not disappoint.
