What I really love about this book is how great the writing is. There isn't a story in it that's (IMHO) badly written and there is some dark stuff in here. I'm not a fan of the gross-out horror but there were enough intelligent stories in here for me. When you read stuff like this it makes you realise how badly written all those celebrity books are whether ghost-written or not. The writers here are the real deal, working from the ground up. I'll definitely be looking up some of these writers to ...more

First off, hands up, I'm in this one. Now, followers of my reviews may be getting ready to pounce with cries of "You always say you're 100% impartial!" And I have to agree. This is a review of a book I read as reader, not a plug.

Monster
Sick Things is a collection of 17 stories of parasites, aliens, demons, insects, and many other nasty critters, and offers up a bit of something for any fan of monster mayhem. The stories range from grotesque to downright hilarious, with a nice blend of different creatures to keep things from getting bogged down. As with most anthologies, there are a few weak links, but the majority of work here is strong.

Highlights include "Hunger Pangs" by Matt Kurtz, in which a diet pill from south of the bo

The title says it all. About the strangest anthologiy ever. SUPER WEIRD and SUPER GORY! A great freak yourself out summer read. From horny zombies to a talking a black opossum who helps a man get his bloody (and deserved) revenge....this book is a smutty and cartoonishly violent amusement park ride! Highly recommended for those with thick skin and a taste for the distasteful.

All the stories are great in this volume, with some that provided deeper meanings than you get from most horror stories that just set out to paint horrific situations.
