Under the Twinkle of Fading Stars (132)

"It was the Halloween of 1963 and I wanted to be Peter Pan, not just in costume but also in life. Under the twinkle of fading stars and the age of sixteen, my dreams would be dashed. My brother came back from college and for a few short hours, I was a kid brother again. Gordy and I dressed as vampires and took a passel of kiddies door-to-door to scare the neighbors into giving treats, and then delivered the kids home. We ended the night on Cemetery Hill high above Union Hollow, our small Appalachian town."

His Master's Voice (156)

In an abandoned warehouse, detectives find the latest victim of a serial kill and a rookie goes underground to find the killer in a world of S&M, rubber, and dog-boys. 

Quote: “The killer tags them just like they were pets. We think they might be runaways, street people, homeless or failed at life in some way. These are the itinerant workers, waiters in cheap dives, jitney drivers, hustlers. This gig must seem like heaven, playacting in costume, decent food,” Arborghast said. A Tech held a veterinary scanner up against the deceased man’s shoulder. It registered the number of a dog license. He tapped the screen and the name “Buddy” and a street address appeared.
