Jack Yeovil.An expert on horror and sci fi cinema his books of film criticism include Nightmare Movies and Millennium Movies , Kim Newman s novels draw promiscuously on the tropes of horror, sci fi and fantasy He is complexly and irreverently referential the Dracula sequence Anno Dracula, The Bloody Red Baron and Dracula,Cha Cha Cha not only portrays an alternate world in which the Count conquers Victorian Britain for a while, is the mastermind behind Germany s air aces in World War One and survives into a jetset 1950s of paparazzi and La Dolce Vita, but does so with endless throwaway references that range from Kipling to James Bond, from Edgar Allen Poe to Patricia Highsmith In horror novels such as Bad Dreams and Jago, reality turns out to be endlessly subverted by the powerfully malign His pseudonymous novels, as Jack Yeovil, play elegant games with genre cliche perhaps the best of these is the sword and sorcery novel Drachenfels which takes the prescribed formulae of the games company to whose bible it was written and make them over entirely into a Kim Newman novel Life s Lottery, his most mainstream novel, consists of multiple choice fragments which enable readers to choose the hero s fate and take him into horror, crime and sf storylines or into mundane reality.

    The first two stories were good, the third was okay, and the forth one just sucked Glad it only cost me 3 for a signed edition.

    This slim and attractive volume brought out by the Alchemy Press, is a bit difficult to review Let me start by saying that this book is neither a novel nor a collection of short stories It is a collection of 4 separate stories, published in different years, in different anthologies These stories are connected by a common theme the cause effects of a slasher horror film and its sequels called Where The Bodies Are Buried The stories dealt with the different facets of this event , which were Who Rob Hackwill the urban legend type demon portrayed in the film originally was, and how the film juxtaposed the demon of the film upon the demon within the template Changes brought by the film s upon its first director who was also the writer Impact of the film, as portrayed by the tabloid media, and the darker realities behind the campaign who gains what Impact of the film, as envisioned by organized religions, and again the darker realities behind the campaign again, who gains what.I found the first story about the original Rob Hackwill to be the most entertaining The second one was too much about the behind the door scenes of film making The third one was downright disturbing ...

    This book is an anthology of four short stories that are interlinked and cover a 40 year ish time span I loved the first three but the last left me feeling indifferent But you may feel different about them all, who knows Worth reading for the first three alone and the veiled references to dodge politicians and unscrupulous tabloid journalism...
