It is autumn now- the leaves are copper and gold and heavy with dew as they fall from long branches onto moist concrete.

The air is cold, almost frigid, and it has been days since the sun has shown itself--for nearly a week this part of the world where I am (where I have always been) has been dank and dark and miserable absent rejuvenating rays to obliterate the awful, perpetual gloom of cloudy days. Sunlight is what we need--my patients and I--we crave its brilliance, its yellow, its warmth. Except for the foliage, everywhere there is grey--grey, grey, and more grey....In his first all-new work since 2009s Dark Cloud Descending, Gibson returns with a feast for hungry readers: My Immortal and The Warden at the Asylum. Immortal is unquestionably Gibson at his most provocative, most decrepit- each line, passage, and page stabs at the readers sensibilities until shredded, never again to be what they were before reading began. In Asylum we find familiar faces- behind stark grey walls are men we have both disliked and loathed, brought closer so that we might see them more clearly--theyre all here: Malefectus, Bane, Livingston, Joseph and a few others, all in session with the mysterious doctor, a man perhaps even more disturbed than all his patients combined.
