What do you get when you mix H.P. Lovecraft, Kurt Vonnegut, Hunter S. Thompson, and The Twilight Zone? Something that resembles Mundt' s short stories, but not really. Be prepared to cringe, squirm, and laugh out loud. ..and be unable and unwilling to explain "what's so funny" . The material is so extreme it defies explanation and so perverse if you could explain it, you would worry what people would think about you for enjoying it so much. Just mull the idea of a mime with Tourette' s Syndrome and you get the idea. Maybe...oh, just read it.

Fresh and different, Mundt is delightfully funny. Like a pie in the face, chock full of spikes. His wit is sharp, wicked with a dollop of menace. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone wanting a fresh new take on horror.

Compared to some of the other titles I have read by this author, this compilation of short horror stories is lacking in a certain aspect that I just can't place my finger on, and the seeming over abundance of vulgarity in both words and thoughts expressed within these stories detracts in my opinion from the potential this book could have reached.
Overall if you absolutely have to read this book than by all means buy it with tepid expectations, however in all honesty I would suggest skipping this particular offering and instead checking out one of the author's stronger compilations.

This collection is just as enjoyable as his first collection -- sometimes you just want to chuckle at the ongoing action, but they are supposedly scary stories so try to be scared as you laugh. Can't wait for a third collection!!!
