review In a Lonely Place 103 ContentsIn the PinesWhere the Summer End. Sticks was phenomenal and so tightly streamlined it made most of the other stories feel overwritten It is no wonder this story has been anthologized so much The River of Night s Dreaming a King in Yellow story was also somewhat good although it went in a much less interesting direction than I had hoped for after the intrigue of the opening scenes 220 Swift held promise but ultimately relied too much on a somewhat tedious build up that grew muddy and failed to deliver much of substance considering the investment At times Wagner employs the male gaze to a ridiculous extent like in Beyond Any Measure where the two roommates are lounging around together in their lingerie because that s normal and he feels the need to describe how the one woman s straining thigh muscles shaped her buttocks nicely as she reached for a book Seriously Beyond that many of these stories are weighed down with the kind of banal and unnecessary expository detail for which I long ago lost any patience Slave Again Whispers of Refuge #2 ridiculous extent like in Beyond Any Measure where the two The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume 1: The Pox Party roommates are lounging around together in their lingerie because that s normal and he feels the need to describe how the one woman s straining thigh muscles shaped her buttocks nicely as she

review In a Lonely Place 103 Of Night’s Dreaming Beyond Any Measur. I first came across Karl Edward Wagner as the editor of a series of Year s Best Horror Fiction It was from that series that I encountered some fantastic stories such as Tiger in the Snow by Daniel Wynn Barber Egnaro by M John Harrison and Black Man in a Horn by TED Kline Karl Edward Wagner studied medicine and psychiatry but became disillusioned and left it writing Conan the Barbarian novels and short horror fiction I got this book from the public libraryIn some ways Karl Edward Wagner is an old school horror writer in other ways he has a contemporary approachIn The Pines A well crafted and well written story about a seductive female ghost But as ghost stories go kind of routineWhere The Summer Ends The story takes place in KEW s homestate of Tennessee Strange dangerous creates hide in the kudzu Kudzu is a vine that will grow a foot a day during the summer and simply overwhelm anything in its path Sticks This story won the British Fantasy Award and was a runner up in the World Fantasy Award for best short fiction Lovecraftian fiction but written in a contemporary style Earlier on goodreads I had described paint by numbers Lovercraftian fiction and this story exhibits it1 Reference to an imaginary and dangerous book2 God like space aliens3 One of the characters goes mad The Fourth Seal Not so much horror but like 1970s style conspiracy fiction and like some episodes of the X Files A young brilliant doctor encounters a secret organization which 1 has the cure for various diseases but withholds it from the public and 2 occasionally unleashes new diseases Why does this organization do this In order to keep the prestige of the medical profession highMore Sinned Against The main character worked in Hollywood performing in sleazyporntorture movies and with supernatural help gets revenge on her erstwhile lover who went on greater success in tv and movies220 Swift Investigation of caves go awry but one of the characters discovers his kinship with an underground raceThe River of Night s Dreaming Hey a story inspired by The King In Yellow KEW says of this story The protagonist is actually male but perceiving himself as female in his psychotic state and the reality of the story is from hisher point of view The story is deliberately set upon two levels supernatural and psychotic and the levels merge and interchangeThe story concludes with remarkable lines from the fictional dangerous play The King in Yellow I resist the temptation to reprint them here Beyond Any Measure A supernatural suspense story with reincarnation vampires lesbianism wild parties

    PDF/EBOOK (In a Lonely Place) This is a really really good collection of dark horror tales from Karl Edward Wagner one of the masters of the genre who passed tragically early Some of the stories are beginning to show their age but that happens to all stories and no one knocks Poe for not talking about smart phones The River of Night's Dreaming is a Robert Chambers inspired story that's always been a favorite of mine and serves as an example of Wagner's appreci

    PDF/EBOOK (In a Lonely Place) While I am proud of the fact that I was even able to obtain a copy of this book for merely being a 1984 mass market paperback this book can cost upwards of 40 in online shops keep an eye out in your local used bookstores and even so that I finally read the thing I have to say I was a little underwhelmed by my first exposure to Karl Edward WagnerThe first three of the seven stories herein are nearly brilliant and cemented Mr Wagner as an a
