Took forever to track it down, amazingly disappointed Found it to be dated, smug and hipster in ways that have not aged well This collection is like watching your uncle try on his ripped denim biker vest from the early 80 s and discovering the buttons are now a foot away from meeting This might have been cool to someone back in the day for some long forgotten reason, but it s not now Not really horror, either.Tedious and self indulgent and that s comin
This hardcover is numbered 110 of 300 an is signed by Karl Edward Wagner and Ron and Val Lakey Lindahn. Wonderful There s a sense of realism in Wagner s prose lacking in others, and yet he was able to channel the fantastic so well, also Here s hoping I can find his other collection like I found this one De todas las historias, solo un par valieron la pena No han pasado bien el paso del tiempo. The book was well written, however, only 2 of the stories were of interest to me. I had been wanting to find a Karl Edward Wagner horror collection since I was in the 7th grade and learned about him from the Daw Year s Best Horror series, one of which I remember I picked up at a bookstore on a field trip I had read Sticks in a Lovecraftian collection I bought just for that one story a few years ago, and I had also read The Fourth Seal somewhere After years of searching and bafflement that Wagner s legendary, influential horror is out of print and so hard to find, I finally tracked this sucker down.First off, surprisingly, these stories mostly were not what I would call horror stories More like that newer phrase that s mentioned a lot, weird fiction My favorites were Into Whose Hands, a quiet, strange story that takes place in the dead of night in a psychiatric hospital Snack machines, coffee, skeleton crew, flourescent lights, crazy and not so crazy people, a doctor who may or may not be fucking with the patients, etc Very cool, lonely atmosphere Neither Brute Nor Human, I really didn t understand the title unless it s something to do with genre fiction tropes, but the story, following the two different lives of two genre writers from the beginnings of their careers to the death of one of them was very good Again, barely horror at all, though the end was a little scary in what it was saying abo
Karl Edward Wagner s 2nd I believe short story collection was a fitfully entertaining enterprise that I found unfortunately frustrating for how cold some of the stories left me Frequently I found Wagner s beginnings and middles really interesting and absorbing, only to be disappointed by lackluster, predictable, or just plain confusing endings, as in the stories Old Loves , Lacunae , and Blue Lady, Come Back Oftentimes I felt as if I was missing something, that I just wasn t picking up what hundreds of other horror lit fans were vibing on To be sure, Wagner has a lot of good stuff here, he has an energetic mix of pulpy prose and a clinician s understanding of the human heart that can be a cunning mix His skill at writing male friendships is readily apparent in the first and best story in the collection, Neither Brute Nor Human, a bromance about two genre fiction writers, one of whom falls down the rabbit hole of fame into a place of madness and depravity I loved this story Wagner s detailed knowledge of the publishing world is sincere, laconic and funny, and ends with a bang Unfortunately, nothing else quite matched it, although his pulp pastiche The Sign of the Salamander was a gorgeously junky, entertaining read, even if the follow up tie in stor
Good horror book expecially interesting if you followed Wagner s life at all. A pretty rare collection of Karl Edward Wagner s short stories.
