review 1: This is the second collection of Laird Barron stories that I have had the pleasure to read. The first being the brilliant Imago Sequence. This second collection actually on the whole, tops the Imago Sequence collection. The stories in Occultation are in my opinion more accessible to take in as Laird can be quite challenging at times. They are gripping, mysterious, creepy and sometimes weird and horrific but they all share one think in common, they are superb pieces of fictional work. I highly recommend this book and I now look forward to reading more of what Laird has awaiting....
review 2: This has to be one of the worst books I've ever read. I knew from the title what I was getting (thankfully, this was a free offering from Barnes & Noble for the Nook) but wa
... mores expecting something better. I can honestly say that I did not like one story in this collection. I like horror books (Stephen King, Peter Straub, Robert McCammon) but this was on a level with very bad "B" movies I watched as a kid. I won't read another book by this author. Don't waste your time. less

Lovecraftian short stories, long on vague unease, short on actual frissons of terror.

Wonderfully unsettling.
