James Pratt, author of 'Horrible Stories for Terrible People. Vols. 1 and 2'
Reading through In the Flesh made me seriously feel like I was reading a Stephen King story. That's not an insult in any way, it's a good story, and a good bit different than the typical gory, surreal horror Barker is more known for in those early years.
The Inhuman Condition was also pretty solid. And I feel it could have made for an excellent horror film no less.
The Body Politic. The idea behind this story is unsettling, but it's so absolutely outlandish both in concept and in execution that it was honestly pretty difficult to take it too seriously. I ended up coming away from it feeling like I'd read a horror-comedy, even parody. It was entertaining however.
Revelations. This one was pretty good, even if a bit bland. A more traditional ghost story, kept me interested, but wasn't anything special.
Some of the rest of the stories are pretty decent, others even better. But overall I can't help but feel slightly let down by the overall package. Especially coming off the bat from the exquisitely excellent Vols. 1-3. The Forbidden aside, I just don't think this set of tales stacks up the majority of those before them. A good read all the same though. I do recommend it.
If you are a fan of his, this is a good addition to your collection! If you love horror stories with a bit of twists and a lot of thought, this is a good book for you.
