Pin Money Nicole cradled her newborn son and gazed through her window at the moon rising in the purple Shanghai sky. Her pussy throbbed in time with her heartbeat, a low, gnawing ache that persisted. despite the bitter herb tea the midwife had made her drink. Though Nicole's labor had ended hours ago, her lover had not yet entered the room. She was beginning to feel afraid. What is there to fear? she wondered. I'm in one of the finest houses in the French Concession. I've just given a rich man his first son. There will be no more eternal nights on high heels,.

This collection by Poppy Z. We are given a look at Elvis' last few days and death. Flashes to information about his past: the cutting of his first record, his patronizing a black men's clothes shop in the 50s, his interest in an albino python. Obviously, the connection is between the python and Elvis' constipation. Interesting from an historical point for what it's worth, but there is no plot or climax.

I had previously read a couple of Brite's short stories, one found in this collection, and was interested in reading her more. Obviously, the stories I had read of hers were very tame and not indicative of her style as I really didn't like this collection much. Poppy's writing style is very readable but her topics, no, I should say content is less than to be desired for my tastes. There is a lot of explicit sex which I don't enjoy but don't really have an issue with. What really I didn't appreciate was the violent graphic sex. Violent sex is just not what I want to read. I don't anticipate reading her again unless a short story comes along in a future anthology I read.

1. In Vermis Veritas (1996) - Very brief story narrated by a maggot living in a slaughterhouse. Pretty gross. (3/5)

2. Arise (1998) - A famous musician fakes his death in 1985 and now he comes out of the shadows when his co-band member and writing partner commits suicide. The musicians' similarity to John Lennon and Paul McCartney doesn't go long unnoticed. Oh, and this is a ghost story, btw. (3/5)

3. Saved (with Christa Faust) (1994) - Not my thing. A story of perverse violent sex with guns filled out with vile blasphemy for good measure. (0/5)

4. King of the Cats (with David Ferguson) (1995) - The introduction to this story calls it a gay fairy tale. It has all the tropes of a fairy tale but there is nothing enchanted about it. It contains both graphic rape and bestiality. Not something I get any enjoyment from. (0/5)

5. Self-Made Man (1997) - The main character, Justin, as the author admits in the intro, basically "is" Jeffrey Dahmer. First, we get his pov as he finishes with one victim and finds his next. Then pov changes to his last victim and we get his story from his days in Thailand, move to LA, and his treatment at the hands of Justin. This is horrific enough, but at this point, the real horror starts where Justin's victims get revenge but a final twist brings a gloomy ending. Very graphic violence; this time the kind I *can* stomach but I did find the whole idea of the story disrespectful to the real Dahmer victims. (3/5)

6. Pin Money (1997) - It is 1917 and a French woman has just given birth to a very rich Chinese man's only son, an heir. Then fast forward and the pov switches to that of the son. It's a short story so I can't really give the plot but I'll sum it up as the vengeance of a ghost. (4/5)

7. America (1996) - This is basically a joke. The brief story of the man-headed cat is the setup and it ends with the punch line. It's a crude joke but it got a small grin out of me. (3/5)

8. Entertaining Mr. Orton (1997) - A story of a couple who have become bored to tears with each other. One night they complete a murder-suicide. Skip ahead 30 years and a similar artistic couple move in, that's when the ghost of the murdered man becomes cognisant. Not bad. (3/5)

9. Monday's Special (1998) - Very quick little story narrated by a coroner telling of the body that arrived this morning (3/5)

10. Vine of the Soul (1998)- A couple in Amsterdam gets high on a new drug and has sex on the eve of 2000. Not my thing. (0/5)

11. Mussolini and the Axeman's Jazz (1995) - The longest story in the book and by far the best. I've read this one before andwish the other stories had been on par with this one. This piece is written straight without the use of sex to shock the senses. In fact, there is no sex at all. An historical piece concerning Archduke Ferdinand possessing a drunk retired policeman who becomes the Axeman of New Orleans. He is out to kill the mage Cagliostro who will change the future for the worse. On the other hand, Cagliostro, hundreds of years old and part of a Freemasons cult is working to make the future a better place, according to him. The ultimate goal is to stop Hitler through the demise of Mussolini. The politics are a bit confusing for me but not paying attention to them the story plays out as a good paranormal thriller. (4/5)

12. Are You Loathsome Tonight? (1998) - I'm not sure what this is. We are given a look at Elvis' last few days and death. Flashes to information about his past: the cutting of his first record, his patronizing a black men's clothes shop in the 50s, his interest in an albino python. Obviously, the connection is between the python and Elvis' constipation. Interesting from an historical point for what it's worth, but there is no plot or climax. (2/5)

What more can one say about Poppy Z. Brite that hasn't already been said a million times? What more can I, personally, say her about her that I haven't already said in my reviews of EXQUISITE CORPSE and WORMWOOD? Once again, with ARE YOU LOATHSOME TONIGHT?, Miss Poppy delights us with her unique blend of terror, torture and erotic suspension. Once again, she proves to us in her inimitable way, that there really is a fine line between pleasure and pain. LOATHSOME, however, is a slight departure for our Maven of the Macabre. While she still serves up a heapin' helpin' of thrills, chills, seductions and gooseflesh, she also spreads her wings a little ... tries out a new format or two, collaborates darkly with other Dark Geniuses, and gives us a few new insights into some very old and very familiar themes. The result? We continue to squirm with every turn of the page.
As with WORMWOOD (a.k.a. SWAMP FOETUS), each story in this latest anthology to emerge from the dark, dank sepulcher of Brite's obscure universe, takes you to a place you have likely never been before ... a dark place with no windows, no way out and the fetid stench of decay at your back. Each story challenges you to wake up from the everyday daydream of sunshine, suburbia and mediocrity and to look deep into your own soul. She challenges you to confront the fears that are latent within you.
This time, however, Brite challenges you to go a step further. From the opening story, "In Vermis Veritas", she eloquently uses first person perspective to convey a unique view on death and decomposition ... from the stance of a maggot in a slaughterhouse. In "Saved" she brews a heady stew of gender roles, violence and murder ... and in the end, we somehow find ourselves identifying with both the slayer and the slain. For an extra special treat, Brite throws in three additional gems that parlay her unique perspectives on some rather well-known historical figures - Elvis Presley, Joe Orton and Benito Mussolini - into a divinely decadent dance with history. It is clear from LOATHSOME that Brite remains the unchallenged Vixen of Viscera. Has she taken us a step too far? Perhaps. But like with all good fiction, the choice is yours. Pick your own poison. If you can't stand the raw honesty of Brite's world, you can always put her book aside, bury your dark side deep in your subconscious where it can fester and get your daily dose of the willies from the next riveting episode of "The Jerry Springer Show".

This is horror-erotica. Either you like it or you don't. It's honestly not really my thing, but for what it is, it's pretty good. These seem more like working through various themes and scenarios than they are complete works of fiction.

I must say a stumbled upon this work by accident. I would very much like to thank the naughty imp who had me choose this delicious work of art. Must read for every bored housewife.

Fantastic book, some of the stories are a little lackluster but the majority of them are fantastic, "Arise", "Saved" and "Vine of the Soul" in particular. Also has a great short story featuring Trevor and Zach from Drawing Blood, and a very short one with Steve and Ghost.

Did not realise tht this is actually the same book as Self Made Man, which I also purchased. I sent this one to a friend who is also a fan of Poppy Z Brite, and he thoroughly enjoyed it.
I really enjoyed this as a HUGE fan of Brite. I didn't want it to ever end! I don't think I've ever read anything involving Miss Brite that I didn't like. =)
