    Black Spiral: Twisted Tales of Terror

    The Black Spiral: Twisted Tales of Terror Tales of the supernatural, haunting tales, tales of gibbering terror combine with an occasional splash of dark humor in rare collection of work from the masters in horror. This anthology comes out of the starting gate at full gallop with Mort Castle's witty and literate take on the true meaning of the horror genre. Mort's biting and sledgehammer approach to humor underscores the subject and nails it right between the eyes. ¿Elvis Can't Dance¿ answers the questions: Is 'The King' prowling the streets of America, filling up at the local 7-11, aware of his surging popularity, and what's his take on impersonators and rap music? Well... he's back and he's mad! Tina Jens and Bob Weinberg tickle your funny bone and tantalize. It reads like buttered popcorn. Tim Lebbon's tale 'Fell Swoop' takes place in not-so-jolly new London. He awakes to find a stranger with his face. He awakes to find Hell on earth around every bend. Richard Weber's tale 'Woman-child' is a chilling and haunting tale of a young girl hounded by an astral-traveling lover. It starts slowly and quickly draws you in sentence by sentence with an ending that's a real shocker. Shades of Koontz combine with Lovecraft for an unusual and original story. Commercial pacing couples with stylistic prose for a marriage that will terrorize and awe. Ramsey Campbell's tale warns us to be careful of the consequences of giving a bad review. Which is a good match with F.Paul Wilson's tale of an outraged novelist who's not happy with the film adaptation of his story. When these talented authors take a tongue-in-cheek look at there own profession, the results are always stellar. Nancy Kilpatrick delivers a double-tap with too tales, which combine horror with sarcastic wit. Not so easy a task in the hands of lesser a writer. But Nancy takes a departure from her vampire tales and erotica to show us two haggard women who cope with life's stressors in the most unusual way.
