Interesting collection of Brite's earlier short stories spanning from the mid-80's to early 90's. Morbidly fascinating in general, though after a while even I was wishing someone would meet a death-free ending. 'His Mouth Will Taste Of Wormwood' and 'the Elder' were my favorites. I higly recommend this for anyone who enjoyed Drawing Blood.

I liked this more than I expected to: in many cases the horror is almost arty. This isn't a slasher/gorey/blood and guts type collection of short stories: this is literature about the darker things in life, even when they aren't supernatural. I have to agree that "The Sixth Sentinel" and "Calcutta, Lord of Nerves" are among the best in the collection.

Gorgeous prose, unforgettable images. These stories are very dark, heartbreaking and visceral.
