Malefic Tattoos for some more inking on her Japanese sleeve by Fabien. Teresa enjoyed a few stories from Allan Leverone's dark collection Postcards From The Apocalypse.
Teresa said she really liked that Allan's stories are all so varied. Her favourite story in the collection is Suspicions, about a serial killer.
"It reminds me of the TV series Dexter, with that twist at the end," says Teresa.
Teresa works as a prison guard in Toronto. So of course I wanted to know if there are any serial killers housed in her prison.
"It's the ones in for drug charges or DUIs that act like punks," says Teresa. Makes sense to me to be polite to your prison guard, murderer or not.
On the subject of penatentuaries, it was just announced that the legendary two-hundred-year old Kingston Pen is slated to close it's doors, and so is Teresa's prison as Ontario turns Mimico jail into a superjail in Toronto at a price tag of $1.1 billion. I bet there will be a serial killer or two doing some time in there, now that all the jails are getting amalgamated.
Postcards From The Apocalypse, that give you a little background, where he got his inspiration from, where the stories first appeared, and the awards he's won for some of them. Allan's novel The Lonely Mile is a serial killer story by the way, and it's fabulously intense.
You can see more of Teresa's ink in her previous reviews of The Lost Children's Charity Anthology and Keith Rawson's The Chaos We Know.
Be sure to stop by Allan's website. He's also on a virtual book tour at the moment over at Partners In Crime for his latest release, Paskagankee.
