Read full description of the books Horror Stories:Jack Kilborn or J.A. Konrath, whatever his name is, the man is a DEMENTED, DISTURBED, SICKFUCKAPATH...and I think I am developing a bit of a man-crush on him. This is the fourth book by NUTSO that I have read (the others being DRACULAS, Endurance - A Novel of Terror and Whiskey Sour) and he continues to shockrock my worldview. I wonder if this is the same kind of odd fascination that impulses women to start up prison romances and marry convicted serial killers. Oh well, I have decided to run screaming with it.
There are 26 tasty tasteless tales in this collection and every one of them has some aspect to it that will tighten your sphincter AND cause your bowels loosen (uh...not a comfortable combo I can assure you). Despite the hardcore nature of the stories I must give "Psycho Jack" major kudos because there was not a single story that I did not at least like. Most of the stories fell, along with my stomach and my faith in humanity, in the “really like” or “I love you...but I can’t take you home to meet my parents because they would never understand” category. Overall, an outstanding collection...in a cover your face, hide in the corner and gibber kind a way.
Rather then go through and describe all 26 stories (because frankly I don’t have the stomach to relive them all right now), here are my choices for the best, most Gorrifically BADASStic stories in the bunch***(incidentally, these are also the stories I would introduce as exhibits at “Mr. Mental’s” psych evaluation ).
Them’s Good Eats: A couple of “cracklin***” eaten rednecks good ole boys meet up with some very NASTY ET’s in one of the most unpleasant alien abduction stories you are likely to come across.
***For non rednecks good ole boys, cracklings are apparently the crisp residue left over after lard has been rendered. In this story, the chaps were cooking pig cracklins...uh....BARRRRFFFF!!!
First Time: A short, sweet and UTTERLY FUCKOED tale about a young man’s first experience with a woman...The author was seriously not held enough as a child or else he was help way too much.
Forgiveness: Those that say confession is good for the soul, have not read this saintly little nugget about a dying criminal confessing his “curse” to an unsuspecting priest. This was one of the most polished and best written of the stories and the ending was wonderfully chilling, though of course completely messed up.
The Bag: What’s in the bag....believe me, you seriously do not want to know but you will be unable to look away. By the way, in the introduction to the story the author said his goal for the story was to think up “the absolute worst thing a paper bag could contain.” Well Sparky....you succeeded brilliantly you twisted sicknut.
Trailer Sucks: In the intro to this story, Mr. “Psychotic Tale Spinner” says “I almost didn’t write this story because the subject matter is downright disturbing.” Downright disturbing...downright disturbing...yeah and having your testicles flattened in a vice is “downright” painful...THIS STORY IS SICK!
The Confession: As bad as “Trailer Sucks” is, this story wins the award for the most graphic, most brutal and most sadistic story in the entire collection. The author says in the introduction that he “wishes he never wrote it.” Well, I can’t say the same thing because it is something to behold.
Dear Diary: A “downright” disturbed pom pom girl shares her innermost thoughts with us...all I can say is holy crapsicles...T...M...I.
Honorable Mention goes to Finicky Eater, Basketcase, Symbios, Well Balanced Meal and Mr. Spaceman. This last one is actually a very funny story about an alien looking to mate with an Earth woman who gets WAY, WAY more than he bargained for. It was a nice change of pace amidst all the horror.
Some of these stories were written early in CUCKOO’s career and are not as polished as they could be. Still the writing is always at least decent and is usually good to very good. However, for what this collection sets out to accomplish and for the kinds of stories it seeks to tell, it succeeds brilliantly and is sure to please horror fans, especially those who like their stories icky and filled with nasties. 4.5 to 5.0 stars. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED...FOR HORROR FANS ONLY!!!
