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.

So to get it out of the way: Sick Things contains my story Heat, and that is all I'm going to mention in regards to it.

I'm going to look at the antho as a whole and pick out some selected stories.

This Is My Body by Lawrence Conquest is the third story in the book, and is
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.

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.

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.
I really enjoyed this, it's sick, but great!
