Reviews for' Art of Anatomy'
‘The almost casual way in which Power builds the sense of tension and drama as the narrative unfolds is a remarkable example of gifted storytelling.
The Art of Anatomy is a nightmarish fairy-tale, filled with wondrous inventive characters, inhabiting a gripping tale of lust, revenge and redemption.’ The Ginger Nuts of Horror, 2021

But these tales are not merely intended to scare or unsettle. The characters in these pages learn things about themselves through their surreal and otherworldly experiences: how to love, how to forgive, how to grieve, how to fight, and, of course, how to protect yourself when confronted with a satanic rhinoceros in the menswear section at Debenhams.
Step right up.
You want thrills and chills, come on in.
This way. This way.
Sit down. Strap in.
You'll laugh, you'll cry.
But don’t worry.
It’s just a ride.
If you’re looking for an array of Horror stories to sink your teeth into, look no further than Memento Mori…pay the Ferryman, and prepare to take the ride of your life.
The title, Memento Mori, is Latin and literally means: “Remember you too must die.” An ominous-sounding phrase, the saying derived from Puritan settlers who would often display tokens of death as a reminder to the living of the fragility of life…not to mention the eternal punishment awaiting those who wallowed in wickedness.
Death has always been a fascination to the living, meaning different things to different groups of people. Edgar Allan Poe nailed it when he said: “The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?”
There is a wealth of truly incredible talent within these pages, each storyteller attempting to explore that very question. Her is a healthy book full of decidedly unhealthy stories. With Death being the key element in each one of those stories, you might be expecting a morbid ride, but rest assured, there are quite a few pieces of comedic gold lined inside this skeleton’s spine, along with the many that will send a chill down your own.
How can one fear themselves? Why would something so natural disturb generations of readers?
Gehenna & Hinnom is honored to present the Year's Best Body Horror 2017 Anthology, the most disturbing and blasphemous collection of horror to ever be read by human eyes. Enter the morose. Embrace the Unknown.
This is the writing prompt that spurred our thirteen contributors to spin their tales.
