it was amazing
bookshelves: dark-fantasy, horror, science-fiction

Paul Haines is an outstanding short story writer, a truly unique voice. His stories often feature a character called Paul Haines and it's never really possible to know where the author ends and the character begins. And within these stories, Haines explores every dark, dirty, nasty facet of the human condition.

This book is the definitive Haines collection. All the uniquely Hainesesque "backpacker horror" stories are here, along with a broad range of other subjects, from the fantastical to the horrible to the downright human nasty and every combination thereof. We also have the dystopian sci-fi novella "Wives", originally published in the awesome X6 Novella Anthology from Coeur De Lion Publishing. "Wives" alone is worth the purchase of this collection, but you should really buy X6 and read the others in that book.

And you must buy this book too, because you'll never read short fiction anything like that of Paul Haines. There will always be a part of you that wishes you never had read the short fiction of Paul Haines, but ignore that sensible and happy bit of your brain.

Everyone needs to explore the darkness. Everyone needs to experience the horror. Everyone should read Paul Haines.

Alan Baxter Working on it! I ran out of time, but will get around to it. It's the definitive Paul Haines collection of short dark/horror fiction. Simply fucking brilliant.

Alan Baxter Done!
