After reading reviews of this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. They were all pretty favourable so I thought I’d give it a whirl. I was a little concerned about the “erotic” nature of the book.

As you can tell from the title and the brilliant cover, this is a mashup of the H.P. Lovecraft short story Herbert West-Reanimator, further popularized by Stuart Gordon’s Re-animator movie.
