Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This is the first fiction collection from Garton, who has previously published four horror novels. A writer of some rough power, he is not in total control of his material: his stories are often crude, their various elements poorly integrated. His writing is compelling, however, particularly when he explores psychopathologies. A fascination with the effects of sexual repression figures importantly in several of the six tales. In "Active Member," a man is dissociated from and terrorized by his own sexuality. "Something Kinky," the most polished story here, is a Hitchcockian account of a man who, after allowing himself to stray one night following years of an unsatisfying marriage, is inadvertently drawn into blackmail and murder. In "Sinema," a boy being raised by strict Seventh Day Adventist grandparents is befriended by an older man who has a VCR and an extensive library of illicit tapes. Other stories concern a radical therapy for child abusers; the revenge a man's body fat takes on the woman who has rejected him; and an account of bloody poetic justice.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Since I was eight years old, all I've wanted to be was a writer, and since 1984, I have been fortunate enough to spend my life writing full time. I've written over 60 books — novels and novellas in the horror and suspense genres, collections of short stories, movie novelizations and TV tie-ins — with more in the works.

My readers have made it possible for me to indulge my love of writing and I get a tremendous amount of joy out of communicating with them, which I've been able to do on various social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter. You can also visit my home on the internet at http://www.raygartononline.com.

This is the place to find out what I've written, what I'm writing and where to get it. You can read my blog, keep up to date on new releases, take part in contests and read an occasional short story online.
