"What a fun read. With spice and humor, Marty Malin describes adventures that older people may take and dangers they may face. There are also spite and jealousy and perversion within these tales, and the revenge is wicked."

"Grandmother's Devil has 6 tales, all so uniquely and beautifully written you'll feel a pang of sadness when you finish reading one because it has ended.
