Haunting, chilling, and riveting are just a few words to describe the horror fiction of F. Paul Wilson. I have read many anthologies he has contributed to, yet it is only when you see so many of his stories placed in one volume that you can truly appreciate his wicked brilliance. As an avid reader and collector of short horror/fantasy/sci-fi fiction, a piece has to be truly remarkable to stand out in my collection, yet this does, and I would not hesitate to re-read it at any time. Both Soft and Cuts were so delicious that they alone were worth the price of the book! The poorest story in here still blows away everything else on the current market.
A complete list of the stories is- ***The Cleaning Machine *** Ratman ***Lipidleggin' *** To fill the Sea and Air *** Green Winter *** Be Fruitful and Multiply *** Soft *** The Last "One Mo'Once Golden Oldies Revival" *** The Years the Music Died *** Dat-Tay-Vao *** Doc Johnson *** Buckets *** Traps *** Muscles *** Menage a Trois *** Cuts
This work turned me into an F. Paul Wilson fan and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the short story form or horror fiction. Treat yourself to this and you will not be disappointed.
