    The Mammoth Book of Body Horror Reviews

  • Randolph

    I had high hopes for this book, but there were a number of serious things wrong with it. The first 163 pages are encumbered by so-called "classic" body horror. Everyone who buys and reads this book ha...

  • Helen

    A mixed bag, as is usually the case with anthologies. The stand-out ones for me were 'Survivor Type' by Stephen King and 'Fruiting Bodies' by Brian Lumley, the rest were so-so and it seemed some of th...
