I’m not sure what a bacchanal is, but I can definitely see the horrific part in these tales. We have a child medium that can talk to the dead, a terminal patient on a mission for revenge, and a group of friends that get lost in the woods, never to be heard from again.
“Thank you for calling Quickie Caskets, the caskets our customers are just dying to get into.” (67)
In “The Encouragement Specialists,” an aspiring writer learns the mysterious workings of a talent agency with the unwavering credo of “write good or else.”
A babysitting job suddenly becomes eerily sinister with a strange child in “No Experience Necessary.”
In “Art Imitates Death,” an artist re-creates his finest masterpiece of his career: his dead bride.
Stories were witty, well-written, and enjoyable. Readers will get a kick out of most of them.
A must-read for any horror lover!
