Chimeraworld #1 is a dark place your mind will never escape. A collection of the most ferocious, the most relentless, the most wonderfully rendered nightmare landscapes ever witnessed in literary history. This is not horror. This is not sci-fi. This is not mystery. This is not thriller. CHIMERAWORLD exceeds all boundaries of taste and narrative.

I'm rating this 5***** because this was my first foray into editing/publishing and it was great fun - there are some really strong non-mainstream writers out there who can get their calloused hands round the throat of a theme and really throttle all the goodness from it.
Feb 21, 2008 Screamingbutterfly rated it 3 of 5 stars Recommends it for: Anyone who likes Bizarro/surrealist horror
An overall good collection. There were a few that weren't so good, but the gems you will find in here make up for it. The best story in here was John Edward Lawsons "Twelve Hells of the Hell Licker." That story alone adds 100 tons of awesomeness to this collection.
