In all my years of reading & collecting horror anthology books, I have never EVER read a short story as horrific and disgusting as "The Stick Woman" by Edward Lee.

Why am I giving this book 5 stars then you ask? Because it made an impact - it did its job. Sure there were a handful of other standout selections in Darkside: "The Tears Of Isis" by James S. Dorr, "Stealing The Sisyphys Stone" by Roberta Lannes, and "Wasting" by Lauren Fitzgerald were stories that I personally found well above average.

Then of course this collection had its fair share of duds; muddled schlock that was so puzzling and unreadable that you have to wonder how they even made it to print: "Family Album" by Adam-Troy Castro, "The Nightmare Network" by Thomas Ligotti, and "Thou Hast Given Them Blood To Drink" by t-Winter Damon & Randy Chandler were three of my least-favorites. (Here's a tip: anyone pretentious & delusional enough to name themselves "t-Winter" has probably either destroyed their brain by years of heavy drug use, or is suffering from some sort of egotistical mental breakdown - and their output will correspondingly be of unintelligable messy quality.)

But back to the "crowning achievement" if you will: reading "The Stick Woman" was nauseating, unpleasant, shocking, and repulsive. I probably own close to 100 paperback horror anthologies, and not once has ANY short story ever come CLOSE to being as memorable and abhorrent as this one. I audibly gasped several times while reading it, just at how unblievable the premise is, and what kind of a sick mind could come up with such a cruel disgusting scenario. I had to wonder why didn't the woman try harder to escape, or use her hands to squeeze the guy's junk while performing her task?

Plenty of other stories in this collection fit the mold of "gross-out" horror, going for the cheap "ewwwww!" reaction from the reader instead of intelligent or well-written horror.

But if you have a strong stomach, pick up a copy of Darkside, if for no other reason than to read what all the fuss is about with Edward Lee. His contribution is one that will haunt me literally for years to come, which I guess when it comes down to it, means that it succeeded as a work of horror fiction.

John Pelan does it again, putting together a great collection of modern-day horror masters, along with intriguingly ghoulish stories from some fresh names. If you are a fan of the short-story horror anthologies as I am, you won't want to miss this first edition of Pelan's 'Darkside' books.

With such a line-up, I can only mention a few of my favorites. 'Skinwriters' is a haunting tale of a writer's success putting pen to milk-white flesh. 'Wasting' will give you a terrifying view of anorexia. 'The Stick Woman' showcases Edward Lee at his sickest, flaunting his uncanny fetish for amputations and poo. 'Soul Of The Beast Surrendered' brings you into contact with the strangest imaginary friends I've ever read about. 'Scars' calls upon a deadly evil lurking in a small African village. 'Ystery Orm' left a vicious chill settled in my spine after reading it: this is the place of a nightmare, strange buildings with unexplainable entrances containing nothing but empty, crawling dread. 'Tears Seven Times Salt' left me feeling damp, shivering with cold, fright, and mystery. 'Voices In The Black Night' is a tale of words captured from library books by a strange man.

'Darkside: Horror For The Next Millennium' is the first of Pelan's 'Darkside' collections. Be sure to pick up 'The Darker Side: Generations Of Horror', 'Walk On The Darkside: Visions Of Horror', and 'Lost On The Darkside: Voices From The Edge Of Horror' if you like this collection. Horror is back, creeping around your house at night, settling its poison to the bottom of your water glass, and howling at the moon as you turn restlessly in your sleep. Light a candle, pour a glass of wine as red as blood, and settle into your armchair for a full night's reading pleasure with a 'Darkside' book. Enjoy!

When does disgust end and horror begin? Extreme sexual perversions (snuff and kiddy porn) and self-mutilation are horrifying, but they are NOT horror! This is the second time I have bought a book of horror fiction only to be met with the small mind's answer to horror - atrocities and butchery. No wonder the horror sections sport as many Lovecraft, Poe, Bloch, and Stoker books as they do new writers. They are all that is left of the truly scary stuff. Even King writes more fright and horror than gore and carnage. Horror should frighten, not disgust. There are some things people should not have to ponder as they close their eyes at night; the top of that list is crudely written fiction!
