Robert Hood's latest collection boasts 13 short stories, one novella, and excellent cover art work by Cat Sparks.
...
Creeping In Reptile flesh has a common thread running through all the stories which I guess lead to Rob Hood's decision on which tales to include. I'm not going to spoil the reader's discovery of what that thread might be, determining what it means is one of the fun parts about reading the collection, but rest assured each entry in the book is of the normal excellent Rob Hood standard. Actually that's going to make choosing personal favourites later in the review real difficult, damn you Robert Hood!

I love a pun and Rob Hood delivers the best ones in Australian horror since the immortal town name of "Flow" had people chuckling during Howling III: The Marsupials. You will however have to approach Creeping In Reptile Flesh with an eye to detail, the Author has more than one story arc happening in the novella that goes toward explaining the final confrontation. The novella is a well constructed piece of writing that sets the tone for the rest of the collection.
Rob Hood follows up his opening salvo, for those still standing, with thirteen stories of menace and surprises as ordinary people face the folding of reality or the completely unexpected in everyday situations. An old dero and his dog Sheepdip face the unrelenting horror of a Lovecraftian menace, a young couple find that keeping mom isn't going to be as hard as they thought, an office worker discovers you simply can't cut it with a succubus, just to name a few of the ideas Rob Hood has in store for you within the covers of Creeping In Reptile Flesh. No matter your taste in dark literature the Author will have something to delight and amaze.
While Rob Hood does delight in bringing to the reader scenes of a macabre nature and in some cases full of gore, he also takes time out of his busy schedule to sex it up high, and heaven forbid even adds lashings of humour as a storyline dictates. A number of stories do feature "the wild thing" but I can assure the review reader that Rob Hood isn't going down the road to exploitation city, plot requirements dictate a visit to the bedroom on occasion. Guess I just blew Rob Hood's chances of any sales with the Rev Fred Nile and his minions, sorry about that one mate. For the moral majority reading from over in the States yes the whole of Australia is mortified at the Author's penchant for occasionally writing things of a sexual nature as well. By the way you can purchase the book via one of the links below and I'm prepared to state for the record that your only interest was due to the pictures or possibly evolutionist propaganda.
On a number of occasions while I was reading Creeping In Reptile Flesh I found myself chuckling out loud at a throw away line or the concept behind an individual story. Don't get me wrong here, I was chuckling in a good way, Rob Hood adds some humour to proceedings to keep you going between the darker toned tales.
