Solid short story collection that highlights one of the most unique imaginations I've come across. In this book, Bark was constantly coming up with ideas that left me thinking, "How in the hell did he come up with that????" But nothing came across as merely a gimmick, Bark has the talent to back it up, developing interesting and fascinating stories.

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.

This is collection featuring stories from a storyteller who should be spoken of in the same breath as Stephen King and Clive Barker. Very few storytellers, especially in the difficult and harrowing genre that is Horror, have managed to grab me from the get-go, and Jasper succeeded.

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!

What makes a horror/weird story writer great? Some would say that writing horrifying stories is a prerequisite. But because peoples' experience of horror is so subjective this needs to be broadened to achieving high suspense.The stories should be creative, not imitative. The most difficult criterion: the stories must be unique. They should project a singular world view not shared by any other writer. Like a watermark on currency, this unique world view can not be counterfeited. Only Poe could write a Poe story. Lovecraft, Hodgson, Grabinski, Edward Lucas White: the same could be said for them. The work of a great horror/weird story writer must be unique to the point of establishing a personal icon. I believe that Jasper Bark fulfills all of these criteria: as a weird/horror story writer he has achieved greatness. I will return to this bold statement after commenting on the stories in "Stuck on You and Other Prime Cuts".

"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.
