Book Description

9 May 2010
Since the dawn of mankind, we have always made our own monsters: the terrors of capitalism and corruption, the things between the cracks, the ghosts of self...terrible beasts of desire, debt, regret, racism...of family ties, and the things that get in the way of our aspirations...the familiar monsters of our own faces, of tradition, rejection, and the darkness that lives deep inside our own hearts... Can you identify the component parts of your own monster? Can you afford to pay the dreadful price of its construction?

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not generally a fan of short story collections, although they can serve as light relief inbetween longer novels. This collection, however, is as far away from light releif as you can get. It is very dark and disturbing stuff. Each story is a masterpiece in it's own right and many screamed out to be made into full length novels. I am having a bit a a "Gary McMahon-fest" at the moment, having loved the brilliant "In the Skin". There are some seriously talented British Horror writers around at the moment and Gary McMahon is right up there with the best.
If you haven't read any of his work I would highly recommend you give him a try and this collection is a great introduction.
