High Strangeness: Tales From the Edge of the Unknown is a work of fiction in the horror and anthology subgenres. It is best suited to mature readers owing to the use of explicit language and themes with gore, violence, and death, and features a collection of ten stories penned by author Philip Tice. From grotesque tales of medical body horror to suspenseful encounters with shamanic skinwalkers, Tice’s imaginative, tense and terrifying visions offer much to fans of the genre, especially those who enjoy speculative, paranormal, and gritty representations of the darker side of the human psyche.
As a major horror fan, I’m always excited to discover authors with a real passion for creating nightmarish fiction, and author Philip Tice has so much to offer with this superb collection. The first thing that really struck me about it was how varied the storytelling is, from verse-style tales to epistolary storytelling, dialogue-driven narrative, and campfire-fire narrative plots. This keeps every story fresh and really resets your brain between different tales, so the reading experience never becomes tired or repetitive. It was extremely difficult to narrow down a favorite because the stories all came to life in such different ways, but for me, the eerie nostalgia and the atmosphere of ‘Yellow King, Silver Screen’ was a big highlight that I keep thinking about every time I pass my local cinema now! Overall, I would certainly recommend High Strangeness to horror readers seeking a new writer to tingle their spines; you won’t be disappointed!
