      **** The Woman In ScarletHere, Lee uses classic sword-and-sorcery tropes, but adds a new twist to the genre, in this tragic tale of a Sword's Man, and the weapon that is also his dream lover. Definitely one that would appeal to fans of the Elric saga.**** Zelle's ThursdayA humanoid household robot maid becomes the focal point of a wealthy family's multiple dysfunctions.

      the stories are all quite brilliant. The woman in scarlet, Doll Skulls, and All the birds of hell are great. The Persecution Machine is amazingly bizarre. The last story, One for Sorrow is the winner though - loved it!
