5.0 out of 5 stars A dark and twisted collection 14 Jun 2011
By DJP
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With the Whirling Man & Other Tales of Pain, Blood & Madness - David throws down a selection of twisted and creepy tales that deal with the Madness and Pain that overcomes and leads to the darker corners of the psyche. Including some of the earliest horror stories the Author wrote, this is a long stare at a wonderfully crafted set of crazies and lost souls.

Covering an array of afflictions, from the poor soul cursed with hypersensitive hearing, to the cleanliness obsessive, the insanity of a guilt-stricken mother, and more - this is a powerful collection of gripping tales spun with the Author's consummate prowess of the flow of a story.

By examining the array of afflictions that twist and shape our darker needs and thoughts, the tales take a hot needle to the fuzziness of a warm tale and expose the crueller aspects of man - the real motivations behind our less savoury acts, and the reasonings that affect our actions.

Of particular note are the tales: Defining Moments, a tribute to Ambrose Bierce - a clever tale of the instant before death and how the mind cries out to retell those last moments a better way, and Patterns in White Static - a creepy tale of an obsessive agoraphobe and how the innocent actions of his new neighbour gradually push the irritation and delusion of the central character beyond insanity and into a whole new padded cell of the mind.

If you want to see how chilling and twisted we can get when we're pushed too far: I heartily recommend this collection of gripping tales. At this price, you definitely won't be disappointed
