That blasted and damned path toward the Real and Truest heart of Leeds Massachusetts This is WXXT It's the witching hour when shadows take wing and nightmares stalk Turn your radio up Point your antennas to the infinite sky And stay tuned for Weather on the Sixes WXXT The bubbling blisters on the tongue of the Pioneer Valley. Originally appeared on my website the Conueror WeirdGateways to Abomination floored me butCreeping Waves WOW I knew it was going to be good but I never expected something like thisFirst you ve got that Nick Gucker cover Nick Gucker Illustrator of gross and drippy phenomena He doesn t disappoint here Look at all of the disgusting Bartlettian phenomena a ossuary WXXT booth dancing embryos playing with a hanged man this one is out of view as its cut off by the spine a man wrangling worms a black Satanic snake Ben Stockton beckoning a child whose mouth is crammed with tiny teethall under the landscape of a distorted fair clownish monoliths rearing up to the sky Holy hellNathan Ballingrud provides a beautiful introduction describing how Bartlett burst onto the scene and how he s back with a vengeance in Creeping Waves But as wonderful as it is it doesn t even begin to cover the contentsThe book opens with an eerie prologue narrated by Ben Stockton reminiscing on the genesis of WXXT and covering some ground for those who haven t read Gateways to Abomination It is followed by Spring Thaw a short creepy piece that hints at the horror to come But the real fun begins with Rampage It s a dark story A really really dark story one that seems to take some concepts from path a story in Gateways and warps them into a much morbid idea After Rampage you re doomedThe book is much intertwined than Gateways The whole WXXT gang is back and the FCC is still after them What silly shenanigans will they get up to this time Thematic elements from Spring Thaw are woven through the contents A certain narrative one about a faded cult leader named Vernon Golden is serialized throughout the book along with Anne Gare s Rare Book and Ephemera Catalogue There are seuels preuels references and opening chapters Old ideas are elaborated upon and new ideas rise along with themThe book is considerably longer than Gateways so I ll focus on the traditional narratives the first of which is Master of Worms A dark story about a twisted family patriarch Bartlett starts off restrained before delving into unbridled surrealism The opening scene is one of the most shocking things I have ever readNext up is Night Dog Wow This has to be one of the scariest stories in the book A man named Wendell working at the ominous Annelid Industries International has his world turned upside down no has his world pur ed in a goddamn blender by a strange man who proclaims horrifying revelations as the company meeting approaches There were times during this story when I was thinking No no NO as things went from bad to worse to hopeless Probably my favorite of the longer narrativesThen Rangel the next longer narrative comes along I think it s safe to assume that this is Bartlett s most successful story it s in the contents of the Year s Best Weird Fiction Volume Three ed Simon Strantzas series ed Michael Kelly and was considered by Ellen Datlow for her latest volume of the Best Horror of the Year Not only that originally published as a chapbook by Dim Shores with creepy illustrations by Aeron Alfrey it sold out of not one but two limited editions Reading it one can certainly see why I m not going to talk too much about the plot but instead I ll just say this Halloween parade in Leeds Something to see This was my introduction to Bartlett and look where I am now reviewing all of his work The Egg is a deliciously nasty tale probably one of Bartlett s most brutal compositions to date A family is raising chickens they wanted pets and chickens were just the best fit for them and decides to leave the radio on for their comfort Life lesson chickens WXXT bad news My description makes it sound almost comical but trust me The Egg is anything but and it features one of the cruelest endings in literature Little Leeds isn t that long but I wanted to pause on it becausewell you ll see Bartlett has a story coming out soon that ties very smoothly into this andwell I don t want to spoil the fun A rebellious girl joins a group of teens in the woods Needless to say things get very strange very fast The Purging of My Uncle s House The Time of the Black Tents is a continuation of the sons of ben

highlight story in the book and it also brings up uestions about the Real Leeds a ominous location referred to throughout the bookThe exploits of Vernon Golden creep through the book A bygone leader of a forgotten cult he contacts the son of a couple who once were amongst his followers telling him that he needs help fighting the devil in Massachusetts Of course nothing is uite as it seems and the plot takes frantic twists and turns in a delightfully dark formThe real climax to the book is Baal Protects the King parts one and two I honestly cannot bring myself to describe this story and to be honest I don t know if I even really could It s a onyx goblet brimming with blood a raging hurricane of nightmarish imagery and haunting ideas Its intensely disturbing scenery will stay with you for days after you read itCreeping Waves is as of this date Bartlett s masterpiece It sit sit s the best thing ever It s the most distressing reading experience I ve ever had It s dark it s devilish and
