reviewed Body Shocks by Pat Cadigan

Love Me Some Body Horror!

4 stars

As I’ve said in other reviews, anthologies are always a numbers game. You’ll like some stories, love others, hate a few, and probably forget most of them within a month. Those that stick with you, though? They make an impact.

This collection was really strong for me, although I’m the exact audience it’s looking for. I love graphic, visceral body horror, and Body Shocks has it one vicious story after the next.

Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay is this: After reading many of the stories, I looked up the author and added a pile of novels and collections to my must-read list. If a collection makes me want to read more by the authors it anthologizes, then it’s a dang good collection.
