Very much a 45 on the star rating chart it is rare I find an anthology of stories where I like the bulk of the entire collection This time there was only a couple that just didn t do it for me otherwise a most awesome weird fictionhorror readThis is actually a reread for me I first read this in 2007 when it was published but I recently felt the need for reading horror and really couldn t remember much about this one so I pulled it off my shelf After finishing it this time it came to me that I must not have really put any effort into it during my first go because frankly these stories are absolutely unforgettable The reader is taken off guard thrown into that sense of unease from the first page and with only minor respites between stories is for the most part kept off kilter until the last sentence of the book The Imago Seuence than exceeded my expectations in terms of the fear uotient that feeling I get when I read something that keeps a the hairs on the back of my neck bristling b my stomach in knots and c the feeling of looming dread alive and well throughout Add in a writing style where horror meets literature and well they just don t get much better than this folks SeriouslyContained in The Imago Seuence are nine stories three of which are so well written and so incredibly creepy that I m still thinking about them two days later1 Old Virginia the tale of a CIA agent assigned to a detail in the wilds of West Virginia kept in the dark about an MK ULTRA project until it s too late 2 Shiva Open Your Eye a short but powerful entry in this collection A presence whose sole task lies well beyond human comprehension takes on human form leaving bodies in its wake Read this one carefully it sets the stage for most of the stories that follow 3 Procession of the Black Sloth which is one my favorites in this book is so unsettling that I had to read it twice Set in Hong Kong with a variety of creepy characters a man is sent to uncover who is at the root of corporate espionage and ends up uncovering his true destiny Much of Procession of the Black Sloth is viewed via scenes aired on televisions in photos or other media and it really reminded me of a lot of the Japanese and Korean horror flicks I watch when my husband s away that keep me up all night afterwards listening to the creaks in the house This one had much the same effect I had to set the book aside for a day before I could continue 4Bulldozer a story set in the wild west where a gun wielding tough guy Pinkerton operative has been sent on a mission by PT Barnum to recover a stolen Necronomicon type tome and runs into serial murders that are part of a hideous ritual I really didn t appreciate this one until reading later stories in this book but it was good and frightening all the same5 Proboscis in which an actor who s seen better days tags along with some bounty hunters on a mission to snag a serial killer and realizes that there are devourers among us6 Hallucigenia This is another one of the entries in this novel that provides an off the charts goosebump producing experience as you read A wealthy man who s been around and his beautiful young wife are out on a drive when their car suddenly breaks down while it s being fixed the wife decides to go shoot some photos and comes across an old barn He follows and out of nowhere his wife is seriously injured left with a strange crack in her head that refuses to heal As he s trying to make sense of what s happened at that barn he spares no expense in tracking down anyone connected with the place That day in than one way was a life changer Hallucigenia provides several OMG moments of sheer delightful fright7 Parallax which runs along the lines of science fiction than the others where a man whose wife suddenly and out of nowhere goes missing tells the story of the aftermath of her disappearance the payoff comes at the very end of this story and will leave you stymied I liked this one and like many of the other stories it demanded an instant reread8 The Royal Zoo is Closed is probably my least favorite story in the collection that doesn t mean it s bad but I just felt that the others were far far better9 The Imago Seuence another of my favorites and probably the creepiest of them all has as its main character a noir type protagonist who is hired to find out what happened to someone who went missing and to find two of a set of three photographs that taken together are known as the Imago Seuence The first one strikes some inner chord that is disturbing enough to the protagonist that he has to see the others especially the last one Truly one of the major highlights of this book this story held me in its grip and didn t let up for a second and I m still thinking about itThere are a number of things that I loved about this book First an interesting aspect about all these stories as a whole is that they point thematically in several of the same directions a there are the tough guy characters who in their own realities can take care of themselves in particularly knotty and extreme situations yet who eventually become putty in the hands of cosmic forces well beyond their control and their comprehension b said forces are often described by Barron as mouths with appetites and he uses holes and cracks as symbols and metaphors that transverse all of these stories c the idea that our human need to know is often responsible for our own downfall resonates clearly as one character in Bulldozer notes Ignorance is all the blessing we apes can hope for but the way Barron develops his characters here leaves little room for passive acceptance among them these people want to try to get a grip on understanding what s happening Finally d there s a cyclical feel to a number of these stories as well as the sense that some of them are connected across time and space Another reason that this book is such a winner is that Barron doesn t have to lay out scenes of explicit slasher film type gore to make his stories work he is one of the most gifted horror writers I ve read He is incredibly talented in using prose that takes readers to the edge of the worst that can happen and leaving them dangling to experience the fear panic and ultimately the hopelessness that abides there He can create a most palpable sense of doom and dread without having to resort to cheapness which sadly I ve found exists in a lot of horror writing and which is why I rarely read much of it any There are a number of very elouent reviews of this book on line for my part all I can say is that I am in awe of Barron s talent as a writer The outright uneasiness and the sense of being off kilter I felt throughout this novel speaks to how deeply I was drawn into the worlds he s created I had to go back to read several stories a second time to make sure that what I d just read was indeed the case a number of these stories gave me an unstoppable case of the willies to the point where I had to put the book down and walk away for a while and the fact that I m still thinking of a couple of them two days after finishing is the icing on the cake of how very well written and downright creepy this book is The Imago Seuence is definitely a no miss in the odd world of weird fiction

There is a great deal about Laird Barron s writing that I like very much Unlike Stephen King whose descriptive passages often resemble an exhaustive catalog of the contents of someone s pockets or purse Barron has a poet s eye for detail and the knack for choosing the right phrase in order to fix a disgusting or disturbing detail in the reader s mind But sometimes he also allows himself something King would never do to be distracted from the essential narrative by his own evocative details and phrases When the overwhelming preponderance of such details lead to the heart of the story as they do in Old Virginia Shiva Open Your Eye Hallucigenia and The Imago Seuence the result is a superb contemporary horror story atmospheric and chilling when they don t the result is atmospheric and occasionally chilling but also puzzling and unfocused All of these stories are worth reading however and the best are superb
