Short Story #1 – Hungry Skin by Lucy Taylor

1 Jan

Lucy Taylor is an author that has been mentioned to me numerous times due to her writing mostly erotic horror, which is one of my favorite sub-genres of horror.  This story, Hungry Skin, was the first story I have ever read by her.

Initially this story doesn’t appear to be a horror story, but as the heroine, Mica, goes in search of finding out more about her recently deceased father’s artwork, there is a slight change in events.  The artwork depicted in this story would be extremely interesting to see in real life if it ever existed, especially the piece described as Medusa’s head with phalluses in place of where the snakes are typically.

Looking forward to finding more of Taylor’s work to read in the future.

    Lucy Taylor’s collection THE SILENCE BETWEEN THE SCREAMS is fantastic. The title story is one of the scariest I’ve read in ages.
