I'm biased. I live in Vermont and love nearly everything about the state, so Burt pretty much had me from word one, but it's the final words that really make these stories so enjoyable and memorable. There's a campfire quality to the tone and atmosphere of these stories. They start off with soberly skeptical yet evenly open-minded folks just checking out strange events. They finishing having leveled the reader with a Poe-like jab to the face.
I don't know anything about Steve Burt, and this book is my first encounter with Devaney & Hoag, but I hope there are other stories to be anthologized, and if not I hope Burt finds inspiration for future stories.
The voice work is fine in this audiobook addition but New Englanders may find the accents a bit distracting. They tend to skew more mid-west than Northern New England, but that lapse of authenticity aside, it's a sturdy rendition.
