5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best collections of horror I've ever seen, 25 April 2003
This review is from: Books of Blood Omnibus, 3 Volumes: v. 1 (Paperback)
Barker is a revelation. Pure and simple, his writing here shines with humour, bloodlust, imagination and terror. Some of the stories will make you laugh out loud, others will give you a sickening feeling at the horror within. "In the Hills, in the Cities" stands out as the most original horror story I've ever seen, "Midnight Meatrain" as the ultimate urban horror and "New murders at the Rue Morgue" is a loving and brilliant tribute to Poe. Well worth a look to anyone who enjoys "in your face" horror, truly fantastic imagination and well written short stories. Any of these short stories would beat the entire Steven King set hands down.
