Scared Stiff: Tales of Sex and Death
by Ramsey Campbell

Category: Fiction / Horror
239 pages; ISBN: 0765300044

Rating: 9/10  (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner


This collection is a combination of a reprint of a previous anthology containing seven repeat tales plus three new short stories released in the nineties and a new afterward. Each tale is well written, cleverly designed and clearly show why Ramsey Campbell is the father of erotic horror, as they all star a perverted individual either as a tormentor or a victim. Not for everyone, Scared Stiff: Tales of Sex And Death consists of ten frightening and horrifying yet erotic somewhat perverted stories at least from the mindset of this middle age female boomer who loves the macabre but is often disgusted by the plots. This anthology provides a voyeur’s look into the soul of this award winning horror author great.
