Reviews of OTHER TERRORS that mention “Night Shopper.”
“[Night Shopper is] one of my favorite stories in the collection. This is a beautiful story that put a tear in my damn eye. I was absolutely in love with the lead character… a trans woman who shops for monsters. She is such a badass. This story is so loaded with humor that is tongue in cheek and dare I say Camp? But so beautiful… ” – Genre Junkies
