World of HurtReview for Worlds of Hurt Contains 3 Misbegotten Mythos short stories and the novella World of HurtThe Alchemy of the ThroatThe Dripping of Sundered WineskinsWhen the Bough Doesn't BreakWorld of HurtThis is a dark dense read with some heavy concepts This one gets pretty deep And Hodge knows how to write deep without losing you in the process 4 stories that are completely different yet interconnected within the Misbegotten Mythos As the stories progressed so did the pace Alone these are uite good Together they are even better Hodge has indeed created a Mythos unlike any other Very well done Solid 4 Stars Highly Recommended Nearly half his life ago Andrei spent 38 minutes as a corpse It's not a secret that he shares with many people Especially these last six years ever since the comforting lie of tunnels and white lights crumbled away to leave him with the memory of what he really found on the other side of death…not Hell but something worse a Heaven unlike anything he'd ever been taught to expect Now as Heaven seeks to reclaim him Andrei awakens to the hidden truths of this world and the next caught between two uneual sides waging a clandestine war for the soul of the world in which everything he's ever taken for granted about good and evil has just been turned upside down When death is no escape what do you do Andrei has a fierce need to know as the clock runs out on the most excruciating moral choice of his life There are few stories in the world that leave me exhausted mentally and physically This is one of them Brian Hodge's vision prose and characterization are matched by very few writers in the world today Every sentence is a story unto itself Every word carefully chosen and employed with deft skill Intellectual controversial and brilliant I gave this book four stars because it is well written by a talented author The story is engaging builds in anticipation well towards the end with lots of twists and turns along the way If you have the edition with the introduction by Brian Keene take a moment to read it It only heightens your sense of intrigue with this tale by the end you say to yourself I have to read this storyI will say though Horror is not my thing I also don't really like stories that portray God in such a way although I do understand the metaphor the author is trying to renderI do think there were a few plot holes not totally cleared up to my satisfaction but I don't think he meant to reveal all the secrets Speaking of secrets maybe I need to go back and understand Manon's Big Secret reveal at the end A friend recommended this book the instant it came out He's already a big Brian Hodge fan I started reading it as soon as I got it and breezed right through It's a short book but the story grabbed me Wow this was a great book It had all of the elements I like in a story twisted horror mixed with religious lore mixed with compelling characters I'd like to do a formal review later but I'd definitely recommend it if you're into this sort of thing 45And death shall have no dominion Excellent style but the story itself didn't really do it for me I did like the overall take on religion; that in itself might interest me enough to read another story or two in this Misbegotten mythos of Hodge's Now I really want to read from Brian Hodge especially the other short stories that are part of this mythos Very well written and plotted Hodge deliver a great story here Earthling's edition is as always a thing of beauty worth adding to any collector's shelve I actually read Worlds of Hurt a collection that contained this story and three other thematically related ones Can't recommend it highly enough to be honest Incredibly raw dark and bleak stuff that's fantastically written and thought through
