Indignities of the Flesh (Unit 34) by Bentley Little


Bentley Little has forged a name for himself as one of the most startlingly original authors in contemporary horror. His subversion of genre tropes and talent for creating surreal, Boschian-like nightmares from the mundane is without parallel. Herein you'll meet: the mischievous `Rodeo Clown,` who may very well be evil incarnate, or perhaps little more than an innocent bystander in a ring of coincidence, a man obsessed with dental hygiene to the point of stalking, in `Brushing`, a cynic forced to tag along on an ill-advised trip to a faith healer in `Documented Miracles`, a demented birthday girl whose equally demented birthday wishes are about to come true, in `Happy Birthday, Dear Tama`, a family on the run from cartoonists in search of their god, in `Loony Tune`, and a man who pays the ultimate price for circumventing a parking attendant in the never before published, `Valet Parking.` Rounding out the collection are `The Black Ladies` and `The Pi ata,` a pair of unsettling stories culled from childhood nightmares, the surprisingly poignant `Even the Dead,` which documents the last days of a tender partnership between two friends, only one of whom is still alive, and `Pray 4 Baby,` Little's first published story, unavailable for nearly 30 years, the distinctly E.C. Comics-flavored cautionary tale about highway curiosity gone horribly wrong.Indignities of the Flesh is a superlative gathering of the kind of twisted, darkly humorous, and mind-bending stories for which Bentley Little is best known. 102-000-0745520-12000-00034
