From Publishers Weekly:
The 27 reprints in Monteleone's story collection span the last 22 years and are as much a chronicle of the course horror fiction has taken in that time as they are of the author's career. Several are solid dark fantasies that strive for a subtle sense of unease rooted in the troubled emotions of their characters. In the best of them, "Rehearsals," a Twilight Zone–type memory tale, a man watches his childhood replay itself as a painful stage drama he's desperate to rewrite. "Love Letters" is a skillfully underplayed blend of supernatural horror and psychological suspense, written as an exchange of letters in which one correspondent reveals an increasingly inhuman sensibility. Monteleone (Eyes of the Virgin, etc.) has used virtually every classic horror trope, from vampires in "Triptych di Amore," in which a seductive lamia destroys celebrity artists over the centuries, to Lovecraftian monsters in the tongue-in-cheek "Yog Sothoth, Superstar."
Recensione di Silvia Riccò di Horror Dipendenza della raccolta di racconti (Edizione Collection) SINFONIA DARK di Poppy Z. Brite, disponibile sul nostro Store e in alcune librerie specializzate.
Un viaggio fra magia, voodoo, cannibalismo, amori ectoplasmatici e morti viventi.
11 racconti tra sangue ed erotismo, ricchi di un fascino vibrate e genuino grazie alla straordinaria capacità dell'autrice di farci immergere in ciascuna storia, dipingendo con grande realismo i luoghi attraverso i quali ci porta, dalla sua amata New Orleans ai vicoli bui di chinatown, da Bangkok ai quartieri poveri di Calcutta. Troviamo racconti assolutamente brutali come RISVEGLI, un vero incubo gore, che ricorda in principio "Cadavere squisito" per poi prendere una sorprendente piega sovrannaturale. Inquietante e grottesco è XENOFOBIA, dove una coppia di tossici accetta di fare la guardia al cadavere di una sconosciuta. La storia più bizzarra della raccolta è MUSSOLINI E IL JAZZ DELL'UOMO CON L'ASCIA, dove il fantasma di Francesco Ferdinando d'Asburgo si palesa ad un ex detective di New Orleans comandandogli di trovare ed uccidere Cagliostro, che sta manipolato Mussolini affinché il suo disegno di compia. Anche in LA SESTA SENTINELLA il protagonista è un fantasma, lo spettro di una pirata che cerca di sedurre una giovane affinché diventi la sua sposa. In LA SUA BOCCA SAPRÀ DI ASSENZIO, racconto dal fascino decadente, due dandy annoiati sono disposti a tutto pur di scrollarsi di dosso la noia e l'apatia che li attanaglia. Persino profanare la tomba di uno stregone. Troviamo anche storie di carattere quasi fiabesco, come quella che apre l'antologia, LA PALUDE DELLE LANTERNE, o IL CUORE DI NEW ORLEANS, toccante ed originale. Il racconto che ho preferito è CALCUTTA, SIGNORA DELLE IMPUDENZE, un'atipica vicenda di morti viventi ambientata in India, che intreccia zombie e divinità spietate in un mix dal sapore esotico fra polvere, spezie e mefitici effluvi. Il racconto sarà presto adattato a graphic novel. La morte, che sia beffarda o agognata, permea ogni vicenda. Talvolta è il suicidio ad essere protagonista, come nei racconti IL DONO, MANCANZA o L'ULTIMO DESIDERIO.
Le storie oscillano fra horror e fantastico, fra realismo e grottesco, e si susseguono amare e malinconiche senza però privarsi talvolta di un tocco di ironia.

Sinopsys: It's Christmastime in the city, but all is not merry. Something is happening in Apartment Seven. Something evil.
Charlie Cerrone thought he had it al l—a loving marriage, a good job, a nice home and financial security— until the night his wife betrayed him and his entire world came crashing down. Angry and confused, Charlie wanders the streets of Boston after dark, dazed and searching for answers, trying to figure out why his wife has apparently taken up with another man and why she's been frequenting a strangely ominous and otherwise abandoned building late at night in one of the worst neighborhoods in the city. Throughout the cold winter night, Charlie descends deeper and deeper into a nightmarish journey that encompasses his past, present and future, a terrifying and surreal odyssey that leads him through the darkest alleys and most dangerous streets of a haunted city, and that will eventually put him face-to-face with the horrific riddle behind his own troubled existence and the shocking mysteries of Apartment Seven.

Synopsis: Young bodies are piling in Rome. Far from ordinary, the victims have a few things in common: having listened to certain music prior to being chased, mauled, and partially eaten in overgrown areas along the Tiber and Aniene riverbanks. Days or weeks later, and elsewhere, their brains expand, their skulls bursting, the bone solidity compromised by several drilled holes. Alfredo Vanacura, a hypochondriac Carabinieri Corps ex-Marshal, is called back from retirement to investigate. How does the case connect with petite, white-snake-wearing Dark Mary, the most powerful hard-rock DJ Rome has ever seen? Her secret is either sepulchral charisma, or something else entirely. Dark Mary has become ever-more popular, people worship her. And Martyna, her necrophotographer lover, her mortal enemy, is sick to the bone with jealousy, or maybe something more savage. Meanwhile, Father Sebastiano, a pale and sickly priest with porphyria, coughs up a mysterious black clay every time he performs last rites. He hides something beneath his church, in the bowels of Rome… Paths and destinies crisscross, inevitably impacting each another in an extreme, decadent, virulent tale of terminal love.
