'Unique' is perhaps a cliche nowadays, but that is the only way to describe Kim Newman, as he stands like a Gulliver among the contemporary liliputs. His work can not be pigeon-holed, as it is truly cross-genre and multi-disciplinarian. But the simplest way to describe his short stories are to call them hugely satisfying. It is quite surprising to find spine-chilling horror so seamlessly mixed with humour & style. This first American collection of Newman's short stories should herald a Newmania which would do a world of good to the current state of fantasy and horror.
Dinoship is a small press, but their production quality has been excellent in this book. My only complaint is: how come they missed out the "Table of Contents" page?
