Summary

From the mind of horror master Garth Marenghi: a masterful multi-volume horror masterpiece thirty years in the making...

Dare you crack open the TerrorTome? (Mind the spine)

When horror writer Nick Steen gets sucked into a cursed typewriter by the terrifying Type-Face, Dark Lord of the Prolix, the hellish visions inside his head are unleashed for real. Forced to fight his escaping imagination - now leaking out of his own brain - Nick must defend the town of Stalkford from his own fictional horrors, including avascular-necrosis-obsessed serial killer Nelson Strain and Nick's dreaded throppleganger, the Dark Third.

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?

From the twisted genius of horror master Garth Marenghi - Frighternerman, Darkscribe, Doomsage (plus Man-Shee) - come three dark tales from his long-lost multi-volume epic: TerrorTome.

Can a brain leak?
(Yes, it can)

i thought I was ready

I thought I was going to be able to handle the dark depths of unimaginable horror when I purchased this audiobook. I was so very, very, wrong. The writer goes into so much detail when describing the hell escapes he endured, I had to pull over into lay-bys regularly, while driving and listening, to be physically sick and evacuate my bowels into a hedge.

The Dreamweaver is back.

If you’re a fan of Garth Marenghi then this won’t disappoint. It is exactly what I expected when it was announced and having the book read by Garth (in character) with all the footnotes and asides are that special cherry on top! As someone who as read the text and listened to the audiobook ( and loved both!) I would have to say that the audiobook would be the definitive experience.

Better than outstandingly outstanding

A horror-fest beyond your deepest darkest dankest direst horrormagination. Dare to read it! Unless you’re Liam Nelson’s lawyers, that could get messy

Suddenly again, I involuntarily laughed out loud!

I've not had this much joy from an audio book for yonks, Superbly preposterous! Wondeful

The best horror comes from a Darkplace

So long after Darkplace, it's a brilliant and unexpected surprise to have more Marenghi content. There are flashes of the genius you would expect, the story at points hilariously warped, and the narration by the author is amazing. However, there are a few sections where the prose falls to merely slightly subpar horror rather than actually funnily bad, and towards the end the book starts to feel too self aware for a character like Marenghi.

Ghoulish Gufaws

Whilst a tad too rich for a single sitting it’s loving take on the horror genre chills, raises a smile and the occasional grimace of disgust. Marenghi’s self insertion as the hero never tires with the creeping entry of the authors ‘real life’ trails and tribulations being the real horror behind his tales. As to be expected from Holness, his narration was masterful. A must for any fan of Darkplace

Rips horror a new one

Marenghi turns creative horror writing on its head by abandoning the favoured technique 'show don't tell' of King, Herbert and the other prannies of horror by 'showing AND telling.'

Always one to break the mould, Marenghi includes a long overdue copyright discussion at the end.
