MY TAKE

4 STARS

If you are looking for some really great short stories, Dark Delicacies is the book you need to buy. Out of the 19 short stories in this book, I think there were maybe two I didn't really care for. Some really phenomenal writers contributed to this book such as Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell, Ray Bradbury, Whitley Strieber, Richard Laymon, and more. You can't go wrong buying this anthology with names like these included.

The stories cover a variety of different extremes of horror. Bradbury's THE REINCARNATE was actually kind of a sad tale. Whitley Strieber created a religious nightmare of a world in KADDISH. Rick Pickman's DARK DELICACIES OF THE DEAD had me laughing. William F. Nolen wrote a pretty good tale with DEPOMPA. Clive Barker's HAECKEL'S TALE was the last story included in this anthology, and probably one of the best. I had actually seen this story on an episode of Masters of Horror. There are many other great stories included in this anthology besides the ones I mentioned above.

I highly recommend you buy this anthology!!
