Description

Reads like Garth's classic oeuvre of paperback horrors crossed with the X-Files, Faustian myth and bits of Manimal. All who criticize or question him will end up dead, usually after a long speech of apology detailing why Garth, err… Nick, was right all along. First introduced in the short-lived cult classic Garth Marenghi's Darkplace almost twenty years ago, Marenghi's pretentiously hackneyed mind was always the main attraction.

Ostensibly a connected series of 3 novellas, the first Type-Face is the best and it works on many many levels, but there are joys throughout. Originally excised from the book and offensive to most readers' sensibilities, it is now boldly reintegrated into the main text of this pleather-bound edition. Good job I loaded this with silver bullets from that box of silver bullets that was sitting on that table labelled “Silver Bullets” inside the “Silver Bullet’’ room I just entered. It’s like The Office, Michael Scott is hilarious but would I want to be in his head for a prolonged period of time? To be clear, that’s a rhetorical question and neither bears nor woods feature as key elements in the plot.Truthfully, I found the first story the weakest (partly because I was turned off by the flaying) but it does pick up once you get onto parts two and three. Hand-signed by the Archduke of Darkdom himself, this collector's edition features an exclusive new short story, 'Throttle and Bribes'.

It’s not for everyone, but if you’re the type of person who’s amused by bad writing or irrational stupidity this may be a good book for you. I know the joke is centred in Garth's obvious "talent," that or not so much talent, but the biggest joke is having to struggle through almost 300 pages worth of it. More terrifying than an army of unhinged Boners, more sensual than a pair of glistening man-breasts, and more mysterious than a dugong.

Forced to fight his escaping imagination - now leaking out of his own brain - Nick must defend the town of Stalkford from his own fictional horrors, including avascular-necrosis-obsessed serial killer Nelson Strain and Nick's dreaded throppleganger, the Dark Third. Even people , yes people would cross the road instantly though that may have more to me living next to a busy set of traffic lights.
