Edited by Paul Kane and Marie O'Regan of bestselling and British Fantasy Award-nominated Hellbound Hearts fame comes a rather tasty tome, The Mammoth Book of Body Horror.
Inside this very special and rather unique anthology you'll find twenty-five stories of transformation, mutation and contagion. Yes folks, it celebrates the sub-genre of 'Body Horror', tracing its origins right up to the most modern exponents of the form.
Featuring a veritable 'who's who' of horror literature, and including the stories those classic Body Horror movies - The Thing, The Fly and Re-Animator - were based on, this promises to be a groundbreaking and landmark release in the history of the genre. To make it even more tasty Stuart Gordan, the director of Re-Animator and From Beyond has written a special introduction.
