Read full description of the books:
In this collection, Etchison set out to expand the definition and realm of horror beyond the usual squelch and eyeballs. Much of the material is refreshingly new (or was in 1992). Joyce Carol Oates (in her story-every-three-days phase) delivers an explosively vicious rant about rats and pregnancy in "Martyrdom," a tour de force slap across the verbal chops. Scott Edelman's "Are You Now?" eviscerates the McCarthy era. M. John Harrison's "GIFCO" probably has some meaning that totally eluded me.
Tomas Tessier's "In Praise of Folly" takes us on an architectural journey into primal terror that's both standard horror fare and something far more unnerving. "Ziggles," by Donald Burleson, is also standard fare but doesn't go farther. Steve Rasnic Tem, a master of distancing despair who's never, to my knowledge, written a bad story, excels with "Underground," as the subterranean ooze of New York seeps into the upper world.
Two stories by Barry Malzberg, a committed middle-of-the-road writer, are two too many. Lisa Tuttle's "Replacements" walks the perfect line between fantasy and fantastic reality, as peculiar, homely, damaged beastlets take the emotional place of lovers and friends. In Ramsey Campbell's "End of the Line," words lose meaning and meaning loses words. Whitley Strieber's "The Properties of the Beast" piles on the words and images, but...?
Lot of good stuff here.
