EDIT: This is a short review, innit? Well here’s the dealio, yo. (Yo.) I am no poet, and thus I am about as reliable a reviewer on poetry as a devout nun is likely going to be an expert on the best hardcore bondage porn. So while I can say that I’ve enjoyed what I read, that does not make me qualified to talk about things like verse and flow, or use big words like iambic pentameter (Tru Fax: I had to look that up just to make sure I was thinking of the right words, and I was totally misspelling it. (Thanks, Google!)) My point is, I can’t tell you about the mechanics of what I read. All I can say is, “I liked it.” And I did. So, yeah.
Okay, here’s my very short review:
Well…this is a book for people with a taste for the macabre. Lots of gruesome visual imagery mixed with absurd ideas and situations. If you like horror or bizarro fiction, you’ll like this. If you don’t, this could leave you a bit green in the gills.
I give The Gorelets Omnibus four stars and recommend it to horror fans looking for a little (bacterial) culture.
