Beschreibung des Verlags

Dark Ride is a collection of short fiction by one of the brightest writers in the genres of horror and dark fantasy. These stories range from the horrific to the 

surreal, and prove Michael Laimo to be a compelling stylist and 

relentless storyteller. None have been collected previously and some 

are original to this volume.


It features an introduction by Brian Keene.


"Summer Fling" is not just another monster tale, and wraps up with a 

resolution that is as wicked as it is unexpected. In "The Rash," the 

author re-examines a personal nightmare to create a universal tale 

of biological terror—illuminating that moment when we discover 

something is going very wrong with our own bodies. Other tales which 

explore this territory are "Contact Lenses" and "Scarred for Life."


Laimo uses his knowledge as a native New Yorker to summon up a 

frightening and memorable subway ride in "End of the Line." Then he 

switches gears in "Something in the Air" to examine a small town 

visited by a very original kind of evil. 


Other tales range from the playful, such as "Aftermath," to the 

extreme, as in "The Exploitations of George Frederick Leighton," and 

the oddly experimental "I Exude in Partials."


In addition, a new novelette, "The Startling Supplements to Brione 

Heloise's Depictions" appears here for the first time. Written as an 

homage to the work of H. P. Lovecraft, it reveals yet another aspect 

of Laimo's admirable talent.
