READER REVIEW: "IMMORTALITY is one of those books that, at 195 pages, left this reader wishing that there were more. Had first encountered Josh Barkey, a gifted author, budding screenplay writer, and artist, on his blog, which he describes as "a journey in words and pictures... one magic lie at a time." But in this book, there is both rhyme and reason to the way the way that he has organized the stories found on these pages. It should also be noted that the author illustrated the book cover, and as you read it, you'll understand better its clever meaning.
"This debut book, in twenty-two short stories, is highly recommended."
The twenty-two short stories in this collection are at turns tragic, funny, cringe-worthy, transcendent, and more. But though they range widely in content and scope, they are unified in this affirmation: that life, despite its inherent and inevitable tragedies, is beautiful.

READER REVIEW: "For it is Germain's style, flexible, expressive and keen, that ties all of these disparate tales together. Make no doubt, these are imaginative stories of terror that are equally very sexy; but they are also stylish bits of prose, a style that engages and engrosses, that pulls you in with a siren's song that can drown you." --Noah Mclaughlin
Rating: 5 stars
Dangerous women aren’t always the ones who carry guns and take down the bad guys. Sometimes, the most dangerous women are the ones we don’t even notice -- the sultry siren crooning in a smoky bar, the innocent young girl twirling in her summer dress, the soft-shoed nurse who helps the comatose.
In this collection, award-winning author Shanna Germain gathers seven of her darkest, lushest fantasy and horror stories about strong, smart women who know that danger is a matter of scale -- and of which side you happen to be standing on.
