Publisher's Summary

The complete short fiction of a master of modern horror fiction

In "Out of Sorts", things get hairy for a man’s wife and his mistress when he begins to feel unwell on the night of a full moon. In "Travelling Light", a traveller is obliged to share a room with a strange man who seems to know a little too much about a series of bizarre murders in which wives have been slain by their husbands. A tourist fascinated by the serial killer John Reginald Christie undergoes an uncanny and horrific experience on a trip to London in "Forget-Me-Not". And in "Samhain", marital strife threatens to turn deadly when a witch turns to black magic to do away with her pathetic husband.

The 13 stories collected here represent the complete short fiction of Bernard Taylor, one of the best-selling horror authors of the 1970s and 80s, author of The Godsend and Mother’s Boys, both adapted for film, and Sweetheart, Sweetheart, hailed by Charles L. Grant as the finest ghost story of all time. In these tales, which often feature an unexpectedly cruel or bizarre twist, Taylor offers a clever mixture of horror and black humor that will delight fans of the genre.

why have i not read more by Bernard Taylor?!

I've only read 2 things by Bernard Taylor, Sweetheart, Sweetheart (which i liked) and Godsend (which i don't remember). I really didn't know what to expect from this collection. OMG! Well let me tell you! it's great. I enjoyed every story and i loved several of them. Some of these stories play with perception, there's a few different types of monsters, a tale of the Innsmouth kind, witches and more! The story that the collection ends with--wow! After listening to this, i definitely want to read more by Mr. Taylor.
David McClelland does such a great job reading this and with the accents. His voice is quiet lovely. I could listen to him for days.

I would like to thank Valancourt Books for this audio book. This is my honest review of it.
