The stories are not for the squeamish, but neither are they horror for the sake of it—there are serious issues addressed within a few of the tales. Ecology, our future as a viable ongoing civilisation, and at the base level, egotistical characters are all featured.
If he so desired, with a tweak here and there, the author could have produced a novel with the contents of this book, but that is not a criticism—it is an observation. One reason for it being published as an anthology may be that there is to be a series. This is great news for all those readers out there with a phobia about ‘creatures’—your personal irrational fear might yet appear.
I am not a horror fan but I believe that the writing of this genre, like any other, should be on a par with a good lie. The story should have an element of truth, and the stronger that element—the more believable the tale.
This is a literary tapestry of a world we could so easily slip into through our ignorance, high opinion of ourselves, and ineptitude as a race.
The stories contain fragments of fact, skilfully blended with science fiction, paranormal, conjecture, and personal experience. Imagination, research and more than a little writing skill is demonstrated in this, the first of the series.
Never fear – if you’re looking for horror, P A Rudders provides it. My absolute favorite tale – sorry Mousey, not yours – was Karni Mata’s Teeth, which is set in an Indian temple. There are lab rats, ship rats, a circus rat, and rats on the radio. Nowhere escapes King Rat!
In Rat Tales, you have a collection of stories told from the rat's point of view: clever stories about lab rats, ship's rats, vampire rats, a circus rat and even rats on the radio.
It's well written, full of twists and touches of horror. The lab rat story surprisingly draws out empathy for the little critters. A great book of short stories.
Even the hardest non-rat fan (and there's a lot of us out there) would find it difficult not to find one story here they might enjoy.
