    This is a shortened version of the review that was published at Risingshadow.net (http://www.risingshadow.net/articles/657-a-review-of-mark-howard-jones-dreamglass-days). Mark Howard Jones' Dreamglass Days is a treasure trove of dark literary speculative fiction for those who love dark fiction. It's an astonishing collection, because each of the stories is something special and gives readers something to think about. Dreamglass Days is everything that I expect from literary speculative fiction. It contains beautifully written and imaginative stories that have originality, style and substance. It has all the necessary elements that are needed to impress a quality-oriented reader. I'm personally a devoted reader of this kind fiction, because there's nothing better and more rewarding that reading stories that delight you with their originality, atmosphere and depth. These stories lure readers into a world where reality blends with weirdness and an alluringly dream-like atmosphere. It's... More > great that many of these stories feature absurdism and surrealism, because it adds a nice touch of strangeness to them. When you read them, you get a feeling that things are not quite right and something unsettling is about to happen or it has already happened. Many of these stories have a deeply melancholy and wistful feel to them that I found irresistible. The author writes perfectly about feelings related to loss, loneliness and yearning, because he doesn't dwell on them, but creates a realistic sense of something lost. I like the way Mark Howard Jones writes about sex, passion and everything that is related to human sexuality. He dares to explore and examine sexuality openly, which makes some of his stories captivatingly erotic. The author's literary prose is beautiful and evocative. I consider him to be one of the best authors of literary speculative fiction, because he has an ability to immerse his readers into his stories. No matter how long or short his stories are, you'll find yourself immersed in them. If you're in need of excellent and beautifully literary dark fiction, I advise you to take a look at Mark Howard Jones' Dreamglass Days. It has a lot to offer for those who love literary speculative fiction and appreciate the finer points of nuanced storytelling. It's a must-read collection for readers who love quality stories and want to be intrigued and surprised by what they read. Highly recommended!< Less
