    1. Genre writing is interesting, like genre music is. Horror is like porn in many ways - the bang you hope for from a piece of writing can only be delivered craftily - you have to build up the setting, the atmosphere - indeed, the poetry - and inject just a figleaf of plausibility into it all; if you neglect this stuff you got pulp; but you can't get too arty because then the money shot get all blurry and dissipates into metaphor. I read these Pan Books of Horror Stories in my youth and thought I'd [...]


    2. Bah, it took me nearly four weeks into the month before I finished just a single book.Worse. this was a book of short stories that I deliberately picked as I thought this might be a relatively fast reading experience given my limited fun time available for anything these days.However, I soon figured that rather than finish this faster it probably took me longer to get through.

    3. There are earlier and later Pan Books that have a few stories that I liked, but this one was just one sadistic cheap thrill after another, ranging from the workmanlike to the sub-par.
