About this title

Synopsis:

Stories about the hidden, twisted sides of human nature include "Fat," "Active Member," "Something Kinky," "Sinema," "Shock Radio," and "Dr. Krusadian's Method"

From Publishers Weekly:

This is the first fiction collection from Garton, who has previously published four horror novels. A writer of some rough power, he is not in total control of his material: his stories are often crude, their various elements poorly integrated. His writing is compelling, however, particularly when he explores psychopathologies. A fascination with the effects of sexual repression figures importantly in several of the six tales. In "Active Member," a man is dissociated from and terrorized by his own sexuality. "Something Kinky," the most polished story here, is a Hitchcockian account of a man who, after allowing himself to stray one night following years of an unsatisfying marriage, is inadvertently drawn into blackmail and murder. In "Sinema," a boy being raised by strict Seventh Day Adventist grandparents is befriended by an older man who has a VCR and an extensive library of illicit tapes. Other stories concern a radical therapy for child abusers; the revenge a man's body fat takes on the woman who has rejected him; and an account of bloody poetic justice.
