From the back cover:
From Bram Stoker Award winner Alessandro Manzetti, one Italy's most visionary minds, comes 20 of his most terrifying short stories in one unsettling collection.
"Alessandro Manzetti is at heart a dark poet, but what makes his fiction so compelling is the way he combines lyricism, visceral horrors, and lush plotting. Reading these stories is like being torn open by a clawed hand in a velvet glove."
--Lisa Morton, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author
"Bosch, Goya, and Hogarth—you'll find them in words in Alessandro Manzetti's GARDEN OF DELIGHT. There's a dollop of science-fiction of the "if this goes on" school, a smidgen of bizzaroism a la "whacked-out, huh?," and the nasty tinge of "in your face and your guts" 1980s horror to these stories, all that filtered through a uniquely old/new world sensibility. Mostly, though, I am reminded of Kenneth Patchen's too little read today 1941 novel, THE JOURNAL OF ALBION MOONLIGHT. No, there's nothing imitative about GARDEN, but Patchen and Manzetti know that to get to the real you've gotta get weird. THE GARDEN OF DELIGHT = REALLY, REALLY, REALLY WEIRD."
--Mort Castle, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author
"Engorged with gruesome incidents."
