Editorial Reviews

Review

FANGORIA MAGAZINE--What's the best criterion by which to appraise an anthology such as SICK THINGS? With the gut, this reviewer is guessing--and within the first six stories, mine was properly knotted. That the anthology hits the ground slipping and sliding in its own viscera with Randy Chandler's sexually explicit "Devils" is no accident. There is something of a mission statement implicit in Chandler's sopping assault: Read on at your own stomach's peril...

...Mullenax has assembled a rogue's gallery of intelligent grotesqueries that will temper one's appetite hours after closing the book... --Fangoria Magazine

Sick Things is a sequel of sorts of Vile Things. Instead of body horror though, this time we get creatures. Now body horror is my favorite but creature horror comes in at a very close second. God Bless Comet Press for giving us great collections of wonderful NEW ideas. What a revelation. Gone are (most) of the creatures herein are new and different ideas. Hell the only "zombie" story here is unconventional, funny, gory, and written by former Spin City star Michael Boatman! I'm so sick of zombies and vampires I could spew and I'm so glad the editor of Sick Things saw fit to keep the genre tropes down to a minimum. Many of the same authors that were included in Vile Things and/or The Death Panel return here, and again they're the best of the bunch. Fred Venturini turns in a story about creatures that steal secrets, Randy Chandler tells us about a woman raped by demons. Tim Curran gets my award for most descriptive tale in the bunch, a retelling of Hansel and Gretel, Sean Logan's tale, "The Neglected," was so disturbing and uncomfortable I almost couldn't get through it. One of the more creative and bizarre of the bunch, Legacy of the Last Invader by M. Shaw, is about a now exstinct group of aliens whose sole purpose was to repopulate their race with our women, the problem is they're hung like baseball bats and kill nearly every woman they meet. The always impressive John Shirley turns in a story about the after life and Jefferey Hale finishes the set with a story every adolescent male would cringe at. 17 stories in all and not a bad one in the bunch. Some are more successful than others but all were a good read.

Comet Press once again has produced a superior collection of extreme horror. Honestly I feel like this one's the best yet from them.

Although this book wasn't as good as another book that preceeded it, called "Vile Things"... This book was still a really great book... it had the right amount of "grossness" to keep me reading it up until the last page. I doubt you'll be disappointed if you decide to buy it... just don't eat before reading it... maybe not even AFTER reading it. :-)
