To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Forced to fight his escaping imagination – now leaking out of his own brain – Nick must defend the town of Stalkford from his own fictional horrors, including avascular-necrosis-obsessed serial killer Nelson Strain and Nick’s dreaded throppleganger, the Dark Third. It’s just as good as the tv show and I frequently found myself laughing out loud, it’s everything a fan of Garth Marenghi could want and I’d highly recommend it. Nick slammed hard on the accelerator of his Honda Civic and sped out of both Roz’s road and her life, immediately breaking hard to negotiate a cul-de-sac, before roaring back around again, passing Roz’s house a second time and speeding off in the direction he actually needed to go in.

He drew his former driving instructor’s Beretta 70 revolver, which he’d been given as a prize for passing, from the holster beneath his dressing gown (he’d come out in his pyjamas) and yanked open the Peugeot’s door. The latter story actually manages to make the ongoing metajoke of Garth’s unwillingness to listen to sound editorial advice become central without breaking the fourth wall as he struggles to make the narrative description of his “dark fragments” make sense and (because rewriting and editing are for people without talent) he struggles to make clear which fragment is which doing what. It is clear that Holness loves horror; like the recent Ladybird books and BBC Two's Philomena Cunk, this is a parody that knows and respects its source material. The audiobook seems the ideal way to experience it, with Marenghi’s - shall we say - unique style of acting to enhance the grisly details.

Garth has been keeping his proverbial cards close to his chest (also proverbial) ever since the cowards that be refused to broadcast his protean vision and delegated it to a brief run in Peru. He wrote, directed and starred in Garth Marenghi's Darkplace for the Peruvian market, which subsequently aired on Channel 4 and has not been repeated due to its radical and polemic content. Legend has it that there was an earlier text (legend is correct, btw); one that contained a story so horrid, so gruesome, that Hodder's initial printing was marked 'To be Pulped' and the manuscript subsequently revised to appeal to a weaker-minded and, frankly, staggeringly ill-informed general public. I guess it's marginally better than my current favourite "Just Another Apocalypse" because (i) it's shorter (ii) some of the sentences make sense.

Stepping outside the car, careful to avoid a big puddle, Capello stared out into the rainswept darkness. A sound like a walking pile of twigs, or a loosened bag of discarded rubble that had somehow suddenly developed the ability to move. Haven't read it yet, but the very prospect of leafing through these horror-filled pages is making me shiver.Against you, my Boners will rise, their spirits stiffened within, and at my command, they will plunge themselves into all who oppose them. Beware before partaking in these twisted delights, travelers, and don't forget to bring a change of shorts. Horrormeister Garth Marenghi makes a triumphant comeback with three linked tales of shuddersome, mind-bending fear . The hospital/hospital show setting grounded the absurdity of the series somewhat, but the novel is all over the place. Nick Steen is the author of hundreds of horror books, when his storylines and ideas escape his mind and start wreaking havoc, Nick along with his editor Rox must find a way to fight back.

Yeah, it has its moments of hilarity, but the same gag is used over and over, and what at first seems like a new one, it later reveals to be, well, PLOT TWIST, to be the same one with a lot of fat surrounding it. I genuinely enjoyed the scenarios and the writing was consistently amusing without being too clever for its own good.First introduced in the short-lived cult classic Garth Marenghi's Darkplace almost twenty years ago, Marenghi's pretentiously hackneyed mind was always the main attraction.

In brief, the story beats are so obvious you can hit the snooze alarm and just focus on his god-awful prose and incomprehensible logic. He reached into the glove compartment and drew out some extra rounds for his revolver, plus some Murray mints. Unless it was that matter of ousting his wife and child from their family home via a team of bailiffs. So when the TV concept is replicated for a pulp paper-back horror some 18 years later, it was an unexpected but very welcomed surprise! If I ceased all alimony payments and sent my ex-wife to live in rented accommodation at her own expense, selling all my daughter’s non-transportable toys, I might just be able to afford it without dipping into any of my own money.So sit back, relax on a sofa - or on a beanbag, if that's how you choose to live your life - and delve into the murky depths of Garth Marenghi's fear-soup. Back then, with first Fright Knight and then Netherhead – and Darkplace, in due course – Holness wasn’t alone, but working with an estimable gathering of stage talent. She may well have whispered, ‘I’ll miss you,’ once I’d gone, but I couldn’t hear that from where I was, and as this is first-person narration and therefore not omniscient, we just won’t know.
