Ito’s best work comes out in his short stories and these classics really shine. “Smashed” was one of the first works of his that I read long before it was collected in this nice volume. Also collected here are three Souichi stories, a macabre tale of an obsessive librarian, a valley tied together with evil intent and mirrors, plus some others that do not instantly stand out as much.
Like always, the art stands out and the absolutely dreamlike story structure that makes Ito’s worlds so inviting and horrifying.
