A Long Walk Down a Dark Alley by J.D. Brink

This micro-collection of shorts by J.D. Brink contains two supernatural noir tales, a science-fiction hard-boiled detective story, and a fairly run-of-the mill vampire story that doesn't quite fit. If the vampire story were an episode of a cable television horror anthology series, it's only redeeming quality would be the obligatory gratuitous nudity.

The noir/hard-boiled stuff is pretty good though. I especially liked the SF piece "Eating in the Underworld," which features a sex-bot custom-built to 'live' exclusively on a diet of human semen.

Note: I received an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest (non-reciprocal) review.
