Stuck on You is a wonderfully fun and twisted story. The premise is killer, but Bark doesn't stop there. He delivers a twist at the end that takes it to the next level.
Taking the Piss is a very short piece with a nasty twist. Real gut-punch horror.
The Castigation Church was a very fun and darkly amusing tale of hell.
Ill Met By Moonlight was a very interesting story with Shakespearean illusions.
How the Dark Bleeds was a story full of atmosphere and suspense. Gripping stuff.
Mouthful is a very gripping monologue (though in a way it's really a dialogue).
Haunting the Past is a really awesome tale of a thief trapped in a haunted house, which deals with how the past affects the present but also how the present can affect the past.
End of the Lines is a really wild story of time travel and time loops and body swapping that left me almost dizzy with the uniqueness of the vision.
Dead Scalp is perhaps the weirdest western/horror hybrid I've ever read, and I mean that in a good way. I never had any idea what was coming next, this story really surprised me in the best way.
Overall, I found this to be a really wonderful collection that introduced me to a new talent.
STUCK ON YOU
The first tale blew me away and made my gorge swirl in my mouth. It describes the fate of an utter (not a nice guy) as he travels across the border to help his girlfriend. One thing leads to another and a while later he has been lightning-struck and … well, I’m not spoiling it, but damn...
I was astounded by what this guy went through, even more so by the way Jasper describes it all – pulling no punches, thrusting the reader into the mind, terror and pain of this character to such a degree that trying to tear myself away was like, well, fiddling with a very fresh scab. By the end of the tale I was breathless, shaking my head over and over, and hoping to hell that I never find myself in the kind of situation the character found himself in.
TAKING THE P
Damned fine tale that, in my mind, asks the question: ‘If you could right a wrong, and in doing so caused a lot of pain to someone, but could get away with it, would you do it?’ By the end of this tale I was cheering on what had occurred – a mean feat, considering just what it is that happens, but Jasper has a way, man…
THE CASTIGATION CRUNCH
The Catholic in me *loved* this tale, and if any stock-broker, insurance-broker, tax-guru type reads this then I’m pretty sure they will, too – long live Suchs!Read more ›
"Stuck on You", the title story, is the best known of the stories in this anthology. It is about Ricardo, a repentant philanderer, trying hard to be faithful to his wife. However, he can't resist the temptation of a bout of hot sex with Consuela, a Mexican drug runner to whom he gave a ride across the border. When an untimely bolt of lightning strikes Ricardo in the rear side during the copulative act, he wakes up to find himself physically fused to Consuela's corpse (hence the title "Stuck on You"). But that is only the beginning: the very top of Dante's seven circles of hell, so to speak. The continual decline through the ever-worsening circumstances to the unexpected denouement could only be envisioned by Jasper Bark. "Taking the Piss" is a short tale of hideous vengeance which the victim richly deserves.Read more ›

A virtually perfect collection of short stories. Many of these reminded me of the best of Harlan Ellison, widely considered one of the greatest writers of short stories. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Duncan Ralston
