Bizarro Horror

FACIAL by Jeff Strand shows how monstrous people can be. The story flips between the POV of two brothers: one with a cheating wife, and the other with a need for a corpse, as well as the POV of the cheating wife and a personal assistant. There is a lot of dark humor in this novella, giving the story a bizarro element.

Events become even more strange, as the POV exchanges increase, and more is revealed about the problem in the basement. The best way I can think to describe this writing style is Lovecraft and Poe getting high together. Really, really high...and then pranking Stephen King.

As always,
