Re: They Don't Come Home Anymore: A Novella

Someone just explained something about the story to me and I see what I'd originally overlooked really makes the story. I didn't give the black humor enough credit.

Black humor abounds throughout Grau's work. It's not always conspicuous, but it's always seemingly present.

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

~ Clark Ashton Smith, "The Devotee of Evil"
