DNF 28% in.
This collection is, unfortunately, above my personal threshold for horror (I'm more of a creature-feature person) and I had to stop reading. I loved the story "Comorbidity" and the use of the profiles as a framing device was a nice touch.
Profiles (framing device): CW for drug use (brief mention), domestic abuse (brief mention), violence, cannibalism, rape (brief mention), child death (not depicted), death.
Margaritaville: CW for drug use, drug abuse, suicidal thoughts, body horror, blood, violence, death.
Comorbidity: CW for parasites, disease, war (backstory), blood, gore, cannibalism, body horror (graphic), child death, death.
Jesus Christ Meets the Chupacabra: CW for racism, xenophobia, bestiality, animal harm, sexual content (graphic), rape, animal death, major character death.
Did not read: "A Vacancy in Staffordshire", "The Life & Times of a Rockefeller Pregnancy Zombie", "Ring The Belles", "Zooland", "Glee-Maiden", "Antiquing", "Six O’s", nor their associated Profiles.
