A fine anthology from fine writer/film-maker Frazer Lee, though I confess that I was slightly disappointed; expecting the title story to be an epic genre novella based on a project that - sadly - never came to fruition, but this is a great horror collection nonetheless. A great genre mix of 'urbane' supernatural, visceral shocks and even, as a true horror genius, extracting terror from the all-too 'mundane' all written in well tailored and engaging prose.

A tale of a night-club tryst ending, as it begun, with mortuary gruesomeness.

I'd already read a couple of 'King Arthur as a vampire' stories, but still, this is what the Un-Dead should be - bloody and dead! Frazer knows the 'erotic' aspect should only re-emphasize their true nightmarish nature.

I'm not a big werewolf fan, but this is a great piece of Lycanthrope horror.

Probably my favourite story in this collection. Simple, single saddo David Jones and his neighbours in Accacia Drive are disturbed by a crass couple copulating in their bass-heavy hip-hop blaring vehicle. Their inevitable dismemberment and the revelation of the killer's true identity is a sublime climax indeed.

On initial reading, this was my least favourite story, but on reflection this is a pretty cool and subtle treatment of the 'fatal woman' theme.

A nice piece of Yuletide terror.

A fitting conclusion in which the horror of real-life the mundane is expertly distilled.

All in all a well varied horror read and I'll definately be checking out, Frazer Lee's novel "The Lamplighters" and look forward to his future work in writing and film.
