A gem.

Understated. Calm. Restrained.

Powerful. Exultant. Joyful. Fulfilling.

Would You Die for Me? by Stultus is an unusual tale of hope and pain, of dashed plans and satisfying dreams. A Halloween-season tale of mundane lives that captures a sense of what the holy day of All Hallow's Eve was intended to be.

Not a religious tale, it speaks to nobility and loyalty and courage and fortitude, to love and compassion and faithfulness and sacrifice in the best tradition of spiritually incisive mythology.

Well-written. Finely-crafted. Well-paced. Patiently-developed. Perfectly-proofread.

A joy to read, its memorable imagery will be recalled in my every graveyard visit.
