Junji Ito is a real master of horror. He writes strange stories and blends it with his creepy illustrations. All of his work is worth a read, if you really love horror. This is a great collection of scary short stories.

I ordered this book to help me get in the Halloween spirit. Not having read much horror manga, I had heard of Junji Ito after finding some of his short stories online. After thoroughly terrifying myself a couple of years ago, this was my first purchase of his work. Fragments of Horror is easily one of the top scariest graphic novels I have ever read in my life. Right up there with recent classics like Severed as well as older classic horror such as Alan Moore's Swamp Thing. There's a sense of terror incredibly real in the pages of this book that only masters of horror like Ito can craft. While 2 of the 8 stories aren't straight horror, they have an eerie quality that makes them right at home with the rest of the terrifying 6 tales. If you're a fan of Asian horror or just want to try it out, definitely buy this amazing book. My only warning, don't read it late at night like I did.
