Jesus, he was so boring. In Italy the sermon had been on the way the Communists had exploited the peasant vote. Now, in Yugoslavia, Judd had really warmed to his theme, and Mick was just about ready to take a hammer to his self-opinionated head. Some of the arguments the ones Mick understood seemed quite sensible. But then, what did he know? He was a dance teacher. Judd was a journalist, a professional pundit. He felt, like most journalists Mick had encountered, that he was obliged to have an opinion on everything under the sun. Especially politics; that was the best trough to wallow in. You could get your snout, eyes, head and front hooves in that mess of muck and have a fine old time splashing around. It was an inexhaustible subject to devour, a swill with a little of everything in it, because everything, according to Judd, was political. The arts were political. Sex was political. Religion, commerce, gardening, eating, drinking and farting — all political.

She wants to work on serious assignments — and what better way to prove herself than to uncover something new about the mysterious Krinar, the aliens who took over the Earth just two years earlier? He has to spawn a dragonling or face the death of another mate.

When he rescues a beautiful woman, he has to seduce her without losing his heart, and before he turns feral forever. I refuse to be burned again. A moving and sexy story of an emergency room doctor who is too busy for love. But when Dr. Lisa Johnson opens her heart, the man she loves becomes the enemy. With her heart and career hanging in the balance, which will she choose? From the ballroom to the emergency room, this fresh romance will keep you turning the pages.

The film's story diverges from the short story and introduces new characters, but retains the same basic concept and story outline. If Satan's minion wins, he gets to rule the Earth. An athlete taking part in the event, Joel, begins to realise the actual stakes of the race when the other runners begin to fall, savaged by some unseen beast.

A satanist politician, Gregory, has made a bargain with Hell on the outcome of the race. Joel does not win due to a struggle with Hell's shape-shifting runner, a demonic familiar who bites off his face.

However, during this struggle, the last surviving runner jogs past them to the finishing line. Hell loses out once again. Gregory is punished for his overconfidence by being gruesomely slain. She recovers only to find that she has an ability to change people's body shapes with her mind. She accidentally kills her therapist and then — somewhat less accidentally — her husband, simply by willing their bodies into tearing apart or folding in on themselves.

One man becomes obsessed with her and tracks her down. Jacqueline eventually becomes a prostitute , her abilities giving her the power to give men the ultimate sexual experience, albeit one that always proves fatal. She has by now lost control of herself and has to be watched while sleeping in case she unconsciously mutilates her own body.

The man eventually makes love to Jacqueline and they willingly die together by her powers. This story is also published in the book I Shudder at Your Touch.

The Skins of the Fathers[ edit ] After his car breaks down in Arizona , a man named Davidson witnesses a bizarre parade of freakish monsters. It turns out that these creatures mated with a woman in a nearby town six years previously, and are intending on reclaiming the child, which they promptly achieve. Davidson reaches the town, where a posse of gun-toting locals are eager to set out to slay the monsters.

Everything goes wrong, however, and Davidson and just a few other survivors end up with a horrific fate; they sink in quicksand which then hardens when they are half-buried, and are left for dead in the burning desert heat.

This was used as a scene in the film Lord of Illusions , which was in turn based on "The Last Illusion", a story in volume six. New Murders in the Rue Morgue[ edit ] Lewis is a year-old man who goes to Paris after his friend, Phillipe, is arrested for butchering a young woman.

Phillipe eventually commits suicide in his cell after babbling about an orangutan who committed the murder he had been arrested for. Lewis does not believe it until he sees the primate — dressed like a human, completely shaved, and wielding a razor — for himself. The beast had been raised by Philippe, a notorious eccentric, as a strange experiment based on Edgar Allan Poe 's classic story.

Volume Three[ edit ] Son of Celluloid[ edit ] An escaped convict dies behind a film screen. Over the years following his death, a cancerous tumor gains sentience from the strong emotions of the cinema's audiences and torments the few people that remain after a show.

The sole survivor of the massacre is seen some time later, having tracked down the murderous entity which was roaming the country after possessing the body of a young girl unaccounted for after the events. She covers the creature with acid, killing it completely.

Rawhead Rex[ edit ] An ancient, malevolent monster, magically imprisoned underground, is accidentally awakened in a village in Kent. Rawhead is a nine-foot humanoid with a huge, toothed head, goes on a rampage, killing and eating several townsfolk. He corrupts the local verger , who surrenders to the violent, depraved impulses that Rawhead represents, and who helps the monster slay the vicar , Coot.

Rawhead sets the village alight, and is eventually overcome by Ron, father of one of Rawhead's victims, who uses a talisman to stall the beast until he is overrun by a mob of enraged villagers. The talisman depicts a pregnant woman, Rawhead's antithesis and the only thing he fears. The story was later turned into the film Rawhead Rex , which Barker has disowned.

But which, strangely, he wrote the screenplay for as well as the original story. Confessions of a Pornographer's Shroud[ edit ] Ronnie is a straight-laced Catholic man who is set up to look like the king of a pornography cartel. He kills some of his enemies, but is murdered by their cohorts. Awakening as a ghost, he possesses the shroud that covers his body in the morgue, and in the shape of the shroud takes revenge on the rest of his enemies.

In a gory finale, he enters the mouth of the man responsible for his ordeal and turns him inside out. Despite containing graphic descriptions of acts of extreme violence, the story is written as a black comedy , revolving around the visual gag of a real ghost looking like someone wearing a bedsheet over his or her head.

Scape-Goats[ edit ] A yacht is stranded on the beach of a deserted island located at a point in the Atlantic Ocean where converging undersea currents bring all the human bodies of sailors drowned at sea.

The hundreds of bodies littering the ocean floor, unfortunately for the stranded crew, aren't as dead as they should be. Human Remains[ edit ] A young gay prostitute is hired by an archaeologist.

Lichfield kisses Diane, and she slips into a coma. Constantia takes over the role of Viola while Diane is put in intensive care. Following her "recovery", Terry realises during sex that Diane is undead , just before she kills him.

The play opens to a packed house. When the house lights are extinguished after the performance, the actors realise that the audience consists entirely of ghosts and decaying corpses. The theatre trustee, newly-dead Tallulah, burns down the theatre. Every living player in the production is killed.

Several of the actors and Terry join Mr. Lichfield and Constantia on the road as a repertory company of the undead. In an isolated rural area of Yugoslavia , two entire cities, Popolac and Podujevo, create massive communal creatures by binding together the bodies of their citizens. Almost forty thousand people walk as the body of a single giant as tall as a skyscraper. This ritual occurs every ten years, but this time things go wrong and the Podujevo giant collapses, killing tens of thousands of citizens horribly.

In shock, the entire population of Popolac goes mad and becomes the giant they are strapped into. Popolac wanders the hills aimlessly. By nightfall many of the people who make up the giant die from exhaustion, but the giant continues walking. Mick and Judd, two gay men vacationing in the area, come upon the smashed bodies of the Podujevans in a ravine awash with blood.

A local man tries to steal their car to catch up with Popolac and reason with it before it collapses and destroys the people who compose it. The man explains the truth of the situation to Mick and Judd, but they do not believe his story.

They seek shelter at a remote farm, where Popolac blunders into the farmhouse, killing Judd accidentally. Mick and the elderly couple who own the farmhouse are driven mad with fear.

Mick wants to join Popolac. He climbs up the tower of ropes and bodies, and is carried away as it walks into the hills.

A line from this story, "stale incense, old sweat, and lies," appears in the song Sin on the album Pretty Hate Machine by the American industrial band Nine Inch Nails.

Steve, a young student, becomes acquainted with an older classmate named Quaid, an intellectual who has a morbid fascination with fear. Quaid reveals to Steve that he kidnapped a vegetarian girl and imprisoned her in a room with merely a steak for sustenance, only releasing her when she finally overcame her dread of eating meat to prevent starvation ; she eats the meat even though it has spoiled.

Steve becomes Quaid's next candidate for his experiments, held captive in a dark, silent room, forcing him to relive a childhood period of deafness that terrified him. Steve is driven insane by this forced sensory deprivation and eventually butchers Quaid with an axe. Quaid's experiments, all along, were to try to help him understand the nature of fear, but ironically his experiments in phobias made his own worst fears come to life.

This story has been made into a film , with Jackson Rathbone playing Steve. Every one-hundred years, during an annual London marathon, Satan sends one of his representatives to compete against the unsuspecting human runners. If Satan's minion wins, he gets to rule the Earth. An athlete taking part in the event, Joel, begins to realise the actual stakes of the race when the other runners begin to fall, savaged by some unseen beast.

A satanist politician, Gregory, has made a bargain with Hell on the outcome of the race. Joel does not win due to a struggle with Hell's shape-shifting runner, a demonic familiar who bites off his face. However, during this struggle, the last surviving runner jogs past them to the finishing line.

Hell loses out once again.
