Evaluation of scary brief story collection Mestiza Blood by V Castro, published by Flametree Press. I was given with a duplicate of this publication by the author.
From the lauded writer of The Queen of the Cicadas (which got starred reviews from PW, Kirkus and Booklist that called her “a innovative and dynamic voice”) comes a brief story collection of headaches, dreams, need and visions concentrated on the Chicana experience. V.Castro weaves metropolitan tale, mythology, life experience and also distress in this individual trip beginning in south Texas: a bar where an evil one dances the night away; a road battle in an area that may not have actually been a battle besides; a malevolent chola at the start of the apocalypse; mind exchanging in the not thus far future; satan who drops as well as finds herself in a brothel in Amsterdam; the secrets to Mictlan given to a lady after she passes away throughout a pandemic. The collection completes with 2 longer tales: The Final Porn Star is a spin on the final lady trope and slasher, with a creature from Mexican mythology; and Truck Stop is a sensual scary love with 2 hearts: a video shop and also a truck stop.
