Demons by Willis Gordon

by Brian Lindenmuth

“Demons” is from the collection The Empty Boulevards by Willis Gordon.

I heard mention of this author on a blog and, as is so easy to do these days, downloaded a sample from his latest collection. “Demons” is the first story.

“Demons” is about a low bottom user, the death of his girl, and his subsequent escape (?) from that life. This is a story that whelmed me. There was nothing wrong with it but nothing wow about it also.
