These days, at least when comedians are involved, they’re often significant productions in themselves, and – perhaps – a means for lacking-match-fitness performers to edge back towards the live stage. I love the show so I was excited to read this but the jokes got old real quick, especially anything to do with Roz and how useless women are. Beware before partaking in these twisted delights, travelers, and don't forget to bring a change of shorts.

The audiobook seems the ideal way to experience it, with Marenghi’s - shall we say - unique style of acting to enhance the grisly details. Garth has been keeping his proverbial cards close to his chest (also proverbial) ever since the cowards that be refused to broadcast his protean vision and delegated it to a brief run in Peru. These stories continue with Nick as the protagonist, but deal with an ongoing arc of fighting the demons he directly unleashed from his imagination.By then end, you'll be joining the rest of us in wondering where we've gone so wrong in life that we don't have a childhood best friend of a psychic dugong. What could be the outcome of Dark Place going viral, in ink, splashed over the white sheets of a publishers percale egyptian weave (more than paper) or thick twill with it's highly distinctive diagonal weave with parallel ribbing? Matthew Holness is a superb filmmaker, so, much like his mate Richard Ayoade, I say, stick at that, and make more films instead of your terrible career as novelists. While I don’t usually take a side in the matter of format (which is largely a question of taste and convenience) you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t listen to this on audio book. He wrote, directed and starred in Garth Marenghi's Darkplace for the Peruvian market, which subsequently aired on Channel 4 and has not been repeated due to its radical and polemic content.

If I ceased all alimony payments and sent my ex-wife to live in rented accommodation at her own expense, selling all my daughter’s non-transportable toys, I might just be able to afford it without dipping into any of my own money.

This book is obviously heavily influenced by the TV show, but also Stephen King, and feels a bit X-Files in places too, with countless other thematic references, without relying on any knowledge of any of the above. But at other times it goes too far in the other direction, letting Garth take control through a deeply uncomfortable and grotesque round of torture porn where he’s literally flayed alive in excruciating detail. I do hope there is more to come the parody of the golden age of horror novels it both ridiculous and completely believable.

I immediately took matters into my own hands and drove said batch in the back of a white rental van to a storage depot in Luton, where I'm happy to say most of the books, though not all, survived several major leaks.As a fan of Garth Marenghi's Darkplace I had to read this, and thankfully it lived up to my expectations, it’s ridiculous, cliched, over-the-top, misogynist and self-centered – in other words brilliant! The second and third segments are somewhat closer to actual stories with surreal, farcical metafictional overlays that mostly work, but I think they suffer from the overall superiority of the first bit. It unlocked a lot of memories of reading exactly this kind of deathless prose, stretched to be even more deathless, which makes it about the most deathless prose out there.
