“I gained an education in the ways in which we live by studying the ways in which we die…”
New York Pathologist Dr. Montag Hawkins
A quality tip led me to Dr Craine’s Body, and while the author, Mr. Patel himself was surprised when I discussed the possibility of reviewing it here as a certified horror piece, he was pleased but not sure it fit the genre. I think it makes a perfect fit, and believe you will too.
Twenty-four quick and delightful pages of looking at a damaged psyche that belongs to a medical examiner named Dr Craine. He lives a lonely withdrawn life of outright isolation, a product of his own quirky personal choices. While he has no real desire to make friends he does have a deep attraction to a colleague, who has no idea he exists. Things take a twist early, altering every aspect of the good doctor’s life. This alteration gives us a great view of the weird and somehow wonderful way very wrong situations can bring about pleasure and even happiness to a human’s life.
While unconventional, the bizarre extremes of the story earn it marks as a true horror story in my opinion. I strongly suggest you purchase this little piece of delight and find out for yourself why I’ve chosen to review it. This is brief, but it is certainly good stuff.
