The final scenario with its recursive dark alter egos really left me wanting more and I really hope this is not the last we see of this fictional dark genius. I do hope there is more to come the parody of the golden age of horror novels it both ridiculous and completely believable. Good job I loaded this with silver bullets from that box of silver bullets that was sitting on that table labelled “Silver Bullets” inside the “Silver Bullet’’ room I just entered.

Garth Marenghi was born in the past, graduated from his local comprehensive (now bulldozed) with some O levels in subjects.

Haven't read it yet, but the very prospect of leafing through these horror-filled pages is making me shiver. I immediately took matters into my own hands and drove said batch in the back of a white rental van to a storage depot in Luton, where I'm happy to say most of the books, though not all, survived several major leaks. Now to rewatch Dark Place and delve back into some of the pulp novels from whence this was conceived. Eventually, he set off to see where she’d got to, knocked on Strain’s door…then he disappeared, too.Ostensibly a connected series of 3 novellas, the first Type-Face is the best and it works on many many levels, but there are joys throughout. Beautifully bonkers, with a razor-sharp understanding of the genre, Garth Marenghi's prose is schlocky, corny, cliché-ridden and over-written. A sound like a walking pile of twigs, or a loosened bag of discarded rubble that had somehow suddenly developed the ability to move. Even people , yes people would cross the road instantly though that may have more to me living next to a busy set of traffic lights.

These stories continue with Nick as the protagonist, but deal with an ongoing arc of fighting the demons he directly unleashed from his imagination. Garth has been keeping his proverbial cards close to his chest (also proverbial) ever since the cowards that be refused to broadcast his protean vision and delegated it to a brief run in Peru. But at other times it goes too far in the other direction, letting Garth take control through a deeply uncomfortable and grotesque round of torture porn where he’s literally flayed alive in excruciating detail.He drew his former driving instructor’s Beretta 70 revolver, which he’d been given as a prize for passing, from the holster beneath his dressing gown (he’d come out in his pyjamas) and yanked open the Peugeot’s door. The humour works on so many levels and reaches a form of genius and it genuinely pushes some limits in the horror genre (immediately deflated by asides and arguments about editing). Other than the ridiculous premise, its the little details that make this book work, the quirks that situate us into Marenghi's eighties machismo sensibilities. Can he and Roz, his frequently incorrect female editor, hunt down these incarnate denizens of Nick's rampaging imaginata before they destroy Stalkford, outer Stalkford and possibly slightly further? There was no aroma on earth quite like the smell of a freshly printed paperback, even if ultimately it was the smell of dead trees.
