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. Review for Worlds of Hurt Contains 3 Misbegotten Mythos short stories and the novella World of Hurt The Alchemy of the Throat The Dripping of Sundered Wineskins When the Bough Doesn t Break World of Hurt This 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 quite good Together they are even better Hodge has indeed created a Mythos unlike any other Very well done Solid 4 Stars Highly Recommended. [Free Ebook] ♭ World of Hurt ♆ Nearly Half His Life Ago, Andrei Spent 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 Unequal 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 Extremely well written by a true master wordsmith, Worlds of Hurt nevertheless fell somewhat flat for me especially through the opening three short tales which connect to one another in direct chronological order, and feature three characters that appear in all In this way, Hodge develops his own mythos which is about as bleak and uninviting as anything I ve previously read Yet I never really connected to or cared for any of the protagonists, and found my attention wandering as the tales progressed.Truth be told, I almost gave the book away mid way through the second tale But I m extremely glad I persevered because the final tale, the novella World of Hurt, blew everything that came before it out of the water It is just as bleak and well written, but the characters come to life in this longer format The motivations behind them are all are fascinating as is Hodge s method for dolling out critical information one snippet at a time Moving, engaging, and driven by a horrifying central concept, World of Hurt is everything horror should be.All in all then, I ll average my scores for the two halves of this book to 3 stars, with the latter novella being something I wold recommend to anyone who enjoys Laid Barron s work.3 Fake White Lights for Worlds of Hurt. 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. Three short stories and a novella all set in the same world, where immortals called the Misbegotten walk the earth and God is a malevolent entity that has taken the place of the creator Some of the best cosmic horror I ve read in a long time, right up there with the best the genre has to offer Very highly recommended. 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 story I 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 render.I 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. This hardcover edition is copy 210 of 500 printed and is signed by Brian Hodge.Worlds of Hurt collects the first four chapters of the Misbegotten mythos into a single volume The Alchemy of the Throat A modern day castrato soprano becomes the latest in a line of indispensable companions to an ancient benefactor Bram Stoker Award finalist The Dripping of Sundered Wineskins The immortal Sisters of the Trinity catapult an Irish stigmatic toward his destiny of being either a saint or a butcher World Fantasy Award finalist When the Bough Doesn t Break The testament of Saint Patrick the Fallen lures a pair of young seekers to rural Ireland, where an agent of divine retribution waits to be unleashed World of Hurt A short novelHighly recommended. Wow I don t know what other word would best describe how I felt upon finishing this collection from Brian Hodge I ve read a few of his books in the past and have always been satisfied However, these stories are not only original, they add an entirely new level to Mr Hodge s already impressive skills.This collection consists of 3 short stories and one novella All four of the stories are connected, some loosely than others The Misbegotten Mythos is a dark world, indeed The writing was outstanding, as I have come to expect from this author.A few quotes that stood out to me And I knew that those things we find most beautiful are made so by the brief span of their lives There are all kinds of tyranny employed around us Bombs are but the loudest This collection is beautifully dark and dense This meant that I had to take it slow so as to be sure everything sunk in This was especially true of the last story, the novella When the Bough Doesn t Break All I can say about this one is WOW It s not what I expected, AT ALL You think the story is going one waybut it s not Gory, dark and deep with all kinds of levels to itI know I will be mulling it over for quite a while There isn t much here to credit to God, in whatever form you see him or her At least, not on the surface In that regard, this read will not please everyone Overall, I found this to be a thoroughly engrossing read, but not a quick one To be honest, it may take another read in the future for me to be sure that I got everything I was supposed to get I will happily look forward to doing so Recommended for fans of dark fiction Mr Hodge sent me an e copy of this book in exchange for my honest review This is it
