I was in for a big surprise when i picked this title up (mainly sdue to the excellent garish cover art and the marketing ploys of the Bizarro movement) - i'd go so far as to say i LOVED every single one of the devilish, ghoulish shockers. They are very much hardcore fare (think Shaun Hutson at his best and then some!)but that does not mean that the writing style is over easy and for idiots. Some of the twists and turns in these expertly crafted shorts are like riding a literary rollercoaster, and the Bram Stoker Award winning tale is very much deserving of the prize and acclaim garnered.
I have since gone on to read one of his long mainstream novels (Monstrosity), which personally i found to be predictable pish, a short novel (The Teratologist), co written with Wrath James white - which is sick sick sick to the extreme, and the other two short story collections available from the Bizarro imprints. Those come in *almost* as good, but this collection is fantastic. The best horror short story collection by a single author that i have read for years.
Be sure to keep a barf bag handy!
Mr Torso/Miss Torso - two connected stories about a twisted serial killer with a mission from God.
Grub Girl in the Prison of Dead Women - Zombie prostitutes, nuff said!
The Dritiphilist - Gross. Hand me a tissue.
Makak - voodoo drug dealers
The Mother - twisted toxic waste yarn.
The Wrong Guy - horny werewolves!
The Baby - Lost for words with this sick, sick tale.
The McCrath Model ss40-C, Series S - `The Pig' Mafia boss Vinchetti makes life difficult for a few of his colleagues.
If you have never read Edward Lee before grab a barf bag because this is a great starting place. Voms away!!!
Edward Lee is a literary genius, in my opinion, and he will keep your rapt attention effortlessly as you turn each page of the nine stories; pacing things nicely so that you relax and your heart stops pounding one minute, and then he's grabbing you by the throat the next, as he pounces upon your mind like a ninja as the graphic descriptions of torture, horror and sexual acts render you wide-eyed with disbelief - as you wonder to yourself if you've really read what you've just read...
He is the Master of extreme horror as far as I'm concerned, and I am beside myself with frustration and impatience as I'm waiting for another of his books to come back soon (this one only took three days to come back, I'm very impressed!) I had never heard of him up until a few months ago, and now that I have, I will be a lifelong fan and will purchase and collect them all. I'm not squeamish, but every time I see someone's nose run when they have the flu, I will always be reminded of a section in one of the stories hehe, and ewww (the gore didn't bother me in the slightest in the stories, but the descriptions - and the uses of - phlegm, did). I wont reveal too much as I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read it yet. The Baby story was vile at one point, but was written extremely well.
I read the entire book twice in one day, and I'll keep re-reading it until the second book that I've ordered comes back.Read more ›
