You Morbid Westphal: Redux & Illustrated Authored by The Grim Reverend Steven Rage

You Morbid Westphal: Redux & Illustrated Authored by The Grim Reverend Steven Rage

A Glimpse Of The Dark

I received this in a exchange for an honest review and I have to say that Morbid Books is one of those publishers you have to read for yourself. The last few books that I’ve read were spot on and nothing short of amazing. I’m not saying this because I got a few books free. I am a fan of not just the authors of certain books but the publishers themselves. It takes a lot to impress me and lately Morbid has been doing just that.

That brings me to Westphal. This is the perfect balance of horror and bizarro and gives you a glimpse of the darkness that resides in all of us. This isn’t the typical story that you can read and see a clear cut ending. Our title character is a drug addict and as the novel progresses the full picture becomes clear. It’s one of those endings that blindsides you.

I love books like this because they pull you in and reveal a little bit at a time. Most people may find that frustrating but in Westphal you’re plunged into this nigtmare landscape so you don’t really expect a happy ending. Rage does a great job of plotting the story in such a way that the deeper you go it all begins to make sense and you can begin to see why Westphal is in the predicament that he’s in.

This is a novella for those that like their books dark and filled with things more suited to nightmares. It’s not for the weak or easily offended but if you’re reading this review you’ve already decided to read this so all I can say is strap in and enjoy the ride.

Born whole from the rectum of a dying patient, Morbid silently stalks the hospital’s hallways, heinously dispatching the most helpless of patients and in the most painfully repulsive of manners. In the meantime, in order to pay for his family and home that includes his ghost step-father Sammy and his pet aborted fetus Chip, Westphal has to ingest mounds of dangerous narcotics to get through his night shifts. Barely hanging on to his Care Tech gig by his fingernails, the last thing Westphal needs is to be accused of Morbid’s evil deeds. You, on the other hand, simply want to find some solace. Terminally ill from a virulent infection, and dependent on Life Support, all You beg for a peaceful and dignified demise. Shirk has other plans for You. The ancient drug-snuffling demon makes You relive all of your deadly and venial sins as he tortures You. Night after night. Until eternal Damnation begins for YOU MORBID WESTPHAL, yet again…
