I had absolutely no idea what to expect when this short story collection was sent to me for review. I didn’t know how the authors would combine horror, food and sex in seventeen different stories. Somehow … they did it – be it that the stories were super weird and not really scary or thrilling at all. Imagine a biscuit so soft and sweetly scented that it gets gangraped by a group of bums. Yep, weird.
When I think of “erotic”, I don’t exactly imagine the scenes of MASHED. In my opinion, most of them were not erotic – they were just about sex, the genitals or panties. They weren’t sensual nor consensual in some cases. That’s not erotic. That’s rape.
Nevertheless, the writing of each story was quite good! Besides the extreme weirdness of most of them, all of them actually made sense when it comes to chronology!
My favourites of the stories were:
– “Sugar” by Darla Dimelle
– “The Wrath of the Buttery Bastard Taters” by Alex Colvin
– “P.A.C.D. The Kitchen of Tomorrow, Today!” by R.A. Goli
– “Arabica” by Cobalt Jade
