This book is 'An Anthology of Nasty Verse' edited by Neil Gaiman & Stephen Jones. It is indeed sick, but apparently the book is Clive Barker's fault - love it! Each rhyme, written by thirty of the world's best-known science fiction, fantasy, and horror authors, is rated with skulls according to nastiness, with the introduction having one skull, not exactly for children, but I highly recommend it if you have a sick sense of humor or can at least apreciate one. -I give it five skulls-

Morbid, dark, nasty, sick and funny as hell. If you have a sick kind of humour and can laugh till you drop about disgusting and gruesome poems, this book is definitely for you.[return]When I saw that both Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker were involved in this collection of horror poems, I just had to get it. And I wasn't disappointed. It's just great fun.
I liked it.. as with any anthology some parts were better than others. It was a neat quirky set of odd, dark, yet funny poems. I definitely enjoyed the final section best... the adult section... there were just more dark and demented places to go with the poetry.

Mirá vos, se editó en castellano, aunque por lo que veo está bastante caro. Igual, jamás vi en papel ninguna edición, así que andá a saber cuál termina llegando a mis manos.
