The Convulsion Factory

The Convulsion Factory - Brian Hodge As I like to do with anthologies (since I seldom read them straight through), I'm going to leave little reviews as I work my way through. My overall rating will reflect what I think of the book so far.

Story Reviews:

GODFLESH - ***** Five Stars

This has got to be one of the more twisted stories I have read. Wow. The beauty of the written language provides a sharp contrast and counterpoint to the depravities described. Eager to read more! I've only read three of his short stories so far, but Brian Hodge is fast heading to a spot on my list of favorite authors.

CHILDHOOD AT THE LOST AND FOUND *** Three Stars

Although well written, this short tale was a little too "goth angst" for my tastes, and never really went anywhere. Not essential reading.
