Oct 14, Rob Twinem rated it liked it. I see this book as a very modern interpretation of the Jekyll and hyde theme. Shye our flawed hero has the beast "The Other" within her and if she cannot control him he will escape and cause bloody ravage on those around him. What made this an enjoyable read for me was the number and varied characters A special mention must be given to the giant Sherriff Dellbert Drum and a big cheer went up from all readers when he met his timely death at the hands Deputy Gene is trying to keep his young son safe from his sister Skye and the mad monster Junior has escaped asylum intending to wreck havoc and death.
The story is secondary to the great list of characters and a few little gems of observation and advice along the way Sep 22, Bandit rated it liked it. Wilde is a pseudonym of Roger Smith, a thriller author I've never come across, but then again I don't read that many thrillers, so that's neither here nor there. Wilde is wrote he writes horror under and does so very well. The reason I mention his original genre choice is because this book read very much like a thriller writer venturing into horror. The supernatural aspect, although well rendered, felt almost tangential.
The cops, the criminals, the murders Wilde sets his story in a small town somewhere south enough to edge on Mexico, appropriately backward in attitudes and narrow in minds and opportunities. The he starts weaving and interweaving the plot lines. For such a small book, the strength of writing and character development was notably impressive, especially considering that it was balanced with all the prerequisite guts and gore and violence. The tight pacing and suspense made the book speed by.
Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, First Edition
The ending was left for a possibility of sequel, but it would be more admirable if the author showed restaurant and left it as is, a lean mean horror thriller machine. Quick thoroughly entertaining read. Genre fans has much to enjoy here. View 2 comments. Nov 25, Mack rated it it was amazing. Horror, red in tooth and claw.
If this is how you like it then Vile Blood is the book for you. Roger Smith's books all have a tinge of horror. You look into their eyes and see a soulless void. With Vile Blood, Roger moves into a different form of horror. Here "tooth and claw" is not a metaphor but actual limb rending, dise Horror, red in tooth and claw. Here "tooth and claw" is not a metaphor but actual limb rending, disemboweling horror. The easy way out with this sort of horror is to shock the reader as often as possible with gratuitous, grotesque violence.
But Roger applies the same careful character building and plot development that you find in his South African crime thrillers. This isn't the wide-open spaces, buffalo roaming, picture postcard west. It is poisoned earth, dead or dying towns, corruption. And a good man trying to stand against evil finding his principles tested.
Four soldiers of a drug lord are killed in savage, bloody, and gruesome ways, like a wild beast tore them apart. For Chief Deputy Sheriff Gene Martindale, the crime scene brings back memories he hoped would stay hidden. Has the beast that lies within his adopted sister Skye awakened? Gene protected his sister all those years ago but now Dellbert Drum, corrupt sheriff from the neighboring county, remembering what happened to Gene and Skye back then, pockets evidence at the crime scene.
He sees a way to make Gene an accessory in his drug distribution network. At the same time the beast is awakening in Skye, so does Junior Cotton from his coma in a mental hospital. Junior is pure, spawn of Satan evil, and has a primal, psychic connection to Gene and Skye that makes it inevitable that their lives will intersect. Rounding out the cast of principle characters is the Reverend Jimmy Tincup, depraved, debased, and degenerate, running a meth lab in an abandoned motel with his whores.
Tincup supplies the product for Drum's drug enterprise. The horror elements are well done and well placed, contributing to the story without becoming repetitive.

Roger also answers a question I hadn't considered before: what happens the morning after the beast feeds. Though this is is the first in a series, the reader isn't left hanging. We get enough satisfying details on Skye's background to get our interest but the complete picture will be developed in the sequels.
As with Smith's other books, he gives the reader a good foundation with the story but he also populates the story with memorable characters: the stolid Gene Martindale who you can see meeting the bad guy at noon on a dusty street in the old west; the virginal Skye Martindale trying to come to terms with what is happening to her; the outwardly genial, inwardly putrid Dellbert Drum; the evil psychopath Junior Cotton whose early life is as much horror as the scene that opens the book; and the Rev. Tincup as venal and unredeemable a character as has ever populated a story. Roger has a background in film and one of his strengths is to give the reader graphic detail with which to build a mental image of the people, setting and action.
For me, the stand-out is the Rev. Tincup and his decaying motel fiefdom. Fascinating and at the same time repellent, like an accident you can't look away from. Shelves: phantastik-supernatural-horror. Und nein, nicht zum Sex, sondern als Nahrung. Freunde dieses Genres werden auf ihre Kosten kommen.

Overall it was well written and the narrative came from several points of view, which kept things interesting, but there was not a whole lot of suspense created and the finale left we wanting. This book was supposed to be beyond horror and, I admit, it was shocking in places, but I found much of it to be gratuitous and unmerited. Again, I thought the premise was interesting, but Well, I was pretty hyped up to read this book due to the blurb from Jack Ketchum, but I was not too thrilled with it.
Again, I thought the premise was interesting, but it would have benefited from more tension and suspense, and less senseless depictions of brutal violence. I do not mind violence or gore at all - don't get me wrong - but a good story line with sympathetic characters would have helped this one out.
Feb 05, Bracken rated it really liked it. I wasn't in the mood for a supernatural thriller when I started this, but damn if Roger Smith didn't put me in the mood.
This novel is straight forward and take no prisoners. It's not as extreme as some things out there coughwrathjameswhitecough , but it reads like Jack Ketchum in a bad mood. A man has his portrait painted, and the portrait magically takes on the ability to absorb the sins of his debauched life while he remains unaged. The tale becomes a tragic warning against a selfish and unconsidered life, as Gray becomes increasingly paranoid that someone will discover the image of his true self. The painting of Dorian Gray was commissioned expressly for the film, by artist Ivan Le Lorraine Albright, and evolved during production.

First edition in book form, preceded by the appearance in Lippincott's Magazine. A tight, internally clean example, scattered foxing to the marbled endpapers and a touch of foxing to the final leaf of text. The binding, while polished, shows previous scuffing down primarily the left side of the spine strip and has some fading to the leather along the left side of the front cover. Wilde's most famous and widely known work, this tale of horror about a dissipated "young" man whose aging and sinfulness shows not on his person but only on a painted portrait of himself that is kept locked away.
Famously, the tale was a result of a luncheon between Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle and their Lippincott publisher who challenged them to each produce a thrilling short story that would appeal to a broad, popular readership; Wilde produced "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and Doyle the Sherlock Holmes novella "The Sign of Four".

About this Item: Lippincott Co. Original printed wrappers. First American Appearance of Oscar Wilde's only novel -- about a man who wills his corruption and evil to appear upon his portrait rather than upon himself. It was not until the following year that Doyle began writing Holmes adventures for The Strand Magazine. Fearing that some of the content was indecent, Lippincott's editor James Stoddart altered and deleted about words without Wilde's knowledge; Stoddart "made a number of alterations to downplay the overt homoeroticism in the novel" [Collins] -- for example, the passage "It is quite true that I have worshipped you with far more romance of feeling than a man should ever give to a friend" was changed to "From the moment I met you, your personality had the most extraordinary influence upon me".
The full, uncensored version of Wilde's novel was not actually published until -- years later. Lippincott's English distributor, whose name appears secondarily on this front wrapper. It was not until April , nine months later, that Ward Lock published the "first edition" of the novel though some would call Lippincott's the true first edition. The first edition in book form would include many additions in fact several new chapters , plus numerous variations, though not getting back to Wilde's original text.
This is a near-fine copy, still in the fragile original wrappers; remarkably, there is scarcely any wrapper edge-wear, or soil, other than a small chip at the lower-left corner of the front wrapper; remarkably, the wrapper's entire spine is present. It is very seldom that we see this in the original wrappers in decent shape any more.
