Killer collection of Blood Red short stories from horror genius and genre icon Clive Barker. All of these stories are very well written, captivating, and will not disappoint. Some of my personal favorite stories: Midnight Meat Train Dread: a horrifying story about a series of sadistic experiments, in one a vegetarian woman is locked in a dark room with a rotten piece of meat. Overall this collection delivers the ripped flesh, bone crunching, bloodcurdling terror!

Marnie and her little sister, Nelly, are on their own now. Only they know what happened to their parents, Izzy and Gene, and they aren't telling. While life in Glasgow's Maryhill housing estate isn't grand, the girls do have each other. Besides, it's only a year until Marnie will be considered an adult and can legally take care of them both.
As the New Year comes and goes, Lennie, the old man next door, realizes that his young neighbors are alone and need his help. Or does he need theirs? Lennie takes them in—feeds them, clothes them, protects them—and something like a family forms. But soon enough, the sisters' friends, their teachers, and the authorities start asking tougher questions. As one lie leads to another, dark secrets about the girls' family surface, creating complications that threaten to tear them apart.
