In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers

In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers - CaitlĂ­n R. Kiernan A short piece in the paranormal-action vein. A mysterious albino hitchhiker, Dancy Flammarion, who claims to speak to an angel, is picked up by a sinister trio (who may be vampires) and taken to an old house tenanted by what may be a coven of cannibal witches. It feels like the opening of a novel - and, indeed, is a prequel to Kiernan's novel 'Threshold' (and, I suppose, 'Low Red Moon,' which I haven't yet read.)
