The Best of Body Horror

The Mammoth Book of Body HorrorNext month sees the launch of the latest in the series of horror sub-genre collections from Mammoth. This time readers are in for treat as body horror becomes the focus.

The Mammoth Book of Body Horror is edited by British Fantasy Award nominated editors Paul Kane and Marie O’Regan and tracks the history of body horror using stories from some fantastic authors.

Amongst those featured in the collection are early body horror writers Edgar Allan Poe and Mary Shelley. A whole host of famous names including H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, Richard Matheson and James Herbert display their talents for the sub-genre. Also present in the collection are modern horror heroes Conrad Williams and David Moody, plus a contribution from arguably the best body horror writer of them all – Clive Barker.

Also included in this list of seminal tales are the stories that were the basis for such classic horror movies as The Thing, Re-Animator and The Fly. As if that wasn’t enough, the collection is introduced by Stuart Gordon, director of Re-Animator.

The Mammoth Book of Body Horror is available on 1 March 2012 and promises to be a fantastic investment for fans of this wonderful sub-genre and first time readers alike.
