"Deadfall Hotel" by Steve Rasnic Tem

My review of "Deadfall Hotel" by Steve Rasnic Tem is up at Strange Horizons. Summary: I'd read more Steve Rasnic Tem.
"It is tempting to describe Deadfall Hotel as a book that uses supernatural events as metaphors; to assume that, as we are led through its myriad and ever-changing corridors, as we meet its twisted and inhuman denizens, as its protagonists are thrown into deeper and darker conundrums as the hotel morphs around them, we are seeing nothing more than surface metaphors for deeper permutations of emotion. Although this interpretation is in many ways technically correct, it is not fully accurate and misses a great deal of the subtlety of Tem's art."
