Splinters by Joseph D’Lacey is somewhat of a special short story collection for the eco-horror author. Not only does this mark his first short story collection – and what better way to commemorate the occasion than a limited signature edition from Timeline Books – but it’s a collection which spans eleven years serving as a portrait of the man as a writer (Joyce reference intended). As one might expect the collection is a diverse one covering a wide spectrum of subject matter and yet it is punctuated by common themes throughout, such as ecology, mortality, fear, self-discovery and altered realities. But is it any good? Let’s find out.
