Description

If I ceased all alimony payments and sent my ex-wife to live in rented accommodation at her own expense, selling all my daughter’s non-transportable toys, I might just be able to afford it without dipping into any of my own money. To be clear, that’s a rhetorical question and neither bears nor woods feature as key elements in the plot. Twitter turned me onto Garth Marenghi's Darkplace just a matter of weeks before I saw this book announced. He reached into the glove compartment and drew out some extra rounds for his revolver, plus some Murray mints. More terrifying than an army of unhinged Boners, more sensual than a pair of glistening man-breasts, and more mysterious than a dugong.

The humour works on so many levels and reaches a form of genius and it genuinely pushes some limits in the horror genre (immediately deflated by asides and arguments about editing). Good job I loaded this with silver bullets from that box of silver bullets that was sitting on that table labelled “Silver Bullets” inside the “Silver Bullet’’ room I just entered.In brief, the story beats are so obvious you can hit the snooze alarm and just focus on his god-awful prose and incomprehensible logic. I do hope there is more to come the parody of the golden age of horror novels it both ridiculous and completely believable.

In the show it works, but while I thought 3 short stories would be a breeze to get through, it verges on exhausting/painful with just a few funny moments and while this maybe to show how bad an author the character Marenghi is, the plot was hard to follow at times, that or I just mentally timed out.

Darkplace handled this desire to see Garth suffer by adding a bevy of behind-the-scenes “interviews” showing what a pathetic failure Garth’s life really is. Not least (and perhaps the funniest) is the final 'chapter' where Garth reads out the copyright information. So when the TV concept is replicated for a pulp paper-back horror some 18 years later, it was an unexpected but very welcomed surprise!
