Blade Chatter

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Blade Chatter, Twenty Four Stories of the Macabre is a volume of short fiction that includes such topics as geezers gone wild, alien life, strange medical conditions, phobias, alcoholic rants, creative bully removal, tainted, unrequieted love and jealousy to the max--refreshing, as short story collections are not so common these days. Maybe reminiscent of Poe, Saki and Hitchcockian in tone. More

Review by: Farnham Farrjones on July 26, 2010 :
Chillingly sp-sp-spoooky... Great collection of weird tales from the pen of Ms. Pendleton. I like it a lot. It is refreshing to see the development of 'hairs bristling on the back of your neck' type of horror writing, rather than the smash and slash that seems to proliferate today's pulp (TV/Movies).

OoooooOOOoo. What a juicy little creepfest! Blade Chatter is just that. My personal favorites are the title chapter, Blade Chatter, Thanksgiving Joy (quite humorous) as is Henry, The Satin Thing, and The Cast Iron Stomach. They are all good, however and some are reminiscent of Saki (H. H. Munro). I have enjoyed reading and re-reading from time to time. I have a copy of the printed book and there are a few interesting illustrations. If you like things macabre-y, I think you will enjoy this read.
