    Don't read this book after sundown! In any storytelling, but especially in fantasy/horror, there is one thing that is critically important if you want to have you toenails curl and leave holes in your bedspread from gripping it convulsively when reading before sleep. It is that you have to care about the characters or else who cares what happens to them. Steve Burt is a master at creating real folks, folks you like, folks you want to scream at so they don't go into that dark room alone. Couple that with an imagination that won't quit and a storytelling style that grabs you by the shirt front and pulls you in, and you'd better fasten your seat belt before reading Odd Lot. Because you're in for a heck of a ride!
