    The cover of Michael Aronovitz’s newest collection of stories is perfectly apt—a group huddled around a campfire listening to the crackling “voice” within; the listeners are mesmerized by the flame (the storyteller in this instance), unable and unwilling to look away. Counting myself among these devoted listeners, I cannot help but recommend this collection. There are certain authors for whom I will drop everything (we’re talking books here) to read their latest endeavor. Last year, after consuming his brilliant novel “Alice Walks”, I added Mr. Aronovitz to that list. The twelve tales that make up “The Voices in Our Heads” are told in a variety of modes (and moods). There are rural and urban legends, meta-fiction, monsters, phantoms, delusions—a plethora of imaginative writing, which includes one of the finest “vampire” tales I have ever read. Another, “The Puddles” (originally featured in S.T. Joshi’s inaugural “Weird Fiction Review”), features a woman overtaken by her compulsion to... More > keep herself and the world (in this case her apartment) spotlessly clean; a sad and horrifying tale. Storytelling seems to come naturally to Aronovitz. He has that rare ability to transmute the mundane details of our everyday existence into the most exquisite prose. You will find yourself nodding in agreement, and perhaps even laughing out loud, at the author’s spot-on descriptive prowess and his ability to tell-it-like-it-is. As disturbing as some of these “voices” can be, there is no question that they are utterly captivating and not to be missed. When the flame finally burns out and you leave Camp Aronovitz behind, the world will be viewed in a much stranger light.< Less
