Life is pain . . .

. . . or at least it is for Jason. Born with a rare central

scent, texture, flavor, even every breath, brings nothing

but mind-numbing pain. His days are spent in a padded room

addicted to every narcotic known to man. At night he is

sealed in a sensory deprivation bag to block out the entire

world. P

Although this book was written a number of years ago and published by small press publisher, Delirium Books, this is probably my favorite story by Wrath James White. He takes a basic premise and runs with it to completion in the most hardcore and visceral way. I honestly believe he has now taken the crown away from author Edward Lee as the new king of hardcore horror fiction.

You never know what to expect from one moment to the next, and as events progress into the most horrific and disturbing w

this was an intense, powerful, and gripping read. everything about it was incredible. Wrath James White is not for everyone,his horror is visual, unnerving, disgusting and terrible. The "monsters" are us. People. The blood is spilled realistically, and copiously. Furthermore, there is no suggestion of violence, no romancing about it. we are shown the violence with unblinking clarity.
That is not to say that there is no story, or that the violence and gore take the front seat. No.
We are never in

Have you ever read that one novel or short story that was just so compelling that it sunk it's claws right into you and wouldn't let go even well after you finished it? It disturbed you and made you think, it made you upset because it was just too tragic or unfair? Well that's just what happened to me after finishing Wrath James White's novella His Pain.

The story moves like an elevator that's plummeting form the top floor with no way to slow down or stop, it has to. At a scant 79 pages, His Pain
His Pain is a novella wrote by hardcore horror author Wrath James White; who has built up a reputation for bringing visceral and intense horror tales to the public.[return][return]This book is about a lad called Jason who is born with a rare condition which means that every sensation gives his immense pain meaning he is forced to live a very sheltered life. One day his mother sees a monk on TV who can teach people to overcome pain so she contacts him and asks for help for her son. But no one cou ...more
Very good novella with a unique concept behind it, a fast read that is easily recommended.

This is one of those kind of books I SO do not wish to purchase in paperback but having no choice but to do so. Ugh!

Sighhh I will need to locate a good hiding place for this once it arrive. Note to self: Go buy a new lockable cabinet for my "naughty stash".

Absolutely Brutal And Surprisingly Thoughtful

As much as this book is absolutely brutal and filled to the brim with writing that may force you to run for the toilet to hurl, it also contains some surprisingly thoughtful elements. Wedged in between the gore are questions about the choices parents make and, more prominently, the difference between physical and emotional pain. The different things happening in your gut and your head makes this an interesting read.
A fascinating premise and a fairly well written story. This is some sick shit!
