Like A Chinese Tattoo, Dark Arts’ April 2008 release featuring stories from Cullen Bunn, Rick R. Reed, David Thomas Lord and JA Konrath, has been garnering some great thumbs-up press this summer!
Hellnotes heralded the launch in early April noting, “In typically atypical fashion, Dark Arts Books launched its fourth title, the obliquely named Like A Chinese Tattoo last week at the World Horror Convention in Salt Lake City by staging … what else? A late night Pajama Party. The book follows the press’ unconventional approach, melding extremely dark fiction with over-the-top humorous horror.
Horrorview Review wrote, “Like a Chinese Tattoo is not for the squeamish. There’s plenty of creepy, crawly dead things (and dead parts, in some cases). The subject matter may shift from the macabre to the manic, but each story is delivered with gripping detail and devilish glee. For fans of the sick and twisted, this collection is a winner.“ To read the review in its entirety, click here.
The June 2008 edition of Horror Fiction Review described Like a Chinese Tattoo as “another interesting collection…nicely blending horror and humor…” while the June 2008 issue of Rue Morgue Magazine called it “a brilliant collection of work from four talented authors, all of whom bring something sick and dripping to the table.”
