Witness a slender neck being circled by rough hands... sharp metal violently stabbing and twisting... the emerging viscous dark red liquid being guzzled greedily, lingering on lips and teeth, followed by the laughter of madness. And that's just Iris and Panda at a wine tasting! "Pass me the bottle, woman! We might as well KILL it..."

I really love Iris and Panda. I think this was their best collection I've read so far. The short stories were all mocking the horror genre but some managed to be both creepy and very funny at the same time. Overall nearly all the stories were very good. My favourite was the Lovecraft parody which was flawless. Easily on par with What ho gods of the Abyss.

Very enjoyable selection of short stories, though slightly too hit-and-miss to merit a top score, despite the ever enjoyable interaction of the lead characters. My favourite stories in the collection were Framed by Mark Michalowski, Apocalypse Slough by Mark Morris, The Delightful Bag by Paul Magrs, and The Shadow of the Times Before by Matt Kimpton, all of which were top notch.
