Abodyemigphobia is the fear of the visceral aspects of the human body. Mutilation, alteration, and disfigurement at the epicenter of horror for many ages. In body horror we not only find something to fear, but we learn to fear ourselves.

How can one fear themselves? Why would something so natural disturb generations of readers?

This is a solid anthology full of very diverse takes on the concept of body horror. Carl Jenning's fabulous story "Cicada" left me horrified of ever having to have a cast. My very favorite tale "Tetanus" by Chris Vander Kaay, went in a completely unexpected and fascinatingly disturbing direction. Not a dud in the bunch- a fine antho. ...more

This anthology contains some very well crafted tales of Body Horror by a diverse group of talented authors.

For example, "The Always Watching Eye" by Gary Power and "Porphyria" by John S. McFarland are chilling tales that draw you deep into despair and terror as they progress to their terrifying conclusions.

In fairness, I won't comment on my own contribution, but I will applaud C.P. Dunphey and Gehenna & Hinnom publishers on an excellent job curating this large collection.

Oh, and as author Car

OK

Some stories scary, some not so scary. Several just plain nauseating. Did any keep me awake at night? No. Were any so interesting I couldn’t put the book down? No.

Great Body Horror Anthology Ranging from the Bizarre to the Disturbing

I managed to read this anthology over the course of three months through my busy schedule. Very few of the stories were duds where as the vast majority was entertaining in their own twisted ways.

Some of the stories were gross, others disturbing, some frightening, and others just weird or bizarre.

Other than this book, I couldn't find many other horror anthologies that focuses so in-depth on the specific subject matter.

Highly re
