InThe Meaning of Blood and Other Tales of Perversity, Chuck Caruso combines his deep roots in the American Gothic with his own contemporary sense of macabre humor. These stories range from crime thrillers to western noir to grotesque horror. Each twisted tale displays Caruso's unique blend of wry prose, feverish storytelling, and tragically-flawed characters discovering that even the most innocent encounter can lead to death. Or sex.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
The use of the word "Perversity" in the title is really suggestive of something this short story collection is not. There are some colorful characters to be sure, but few I would call out as "perverse."

Some of these stories are really short, and most of the plots are familiar and ordinary. The stories had a tendency to abruptly end...too abruptly as they feel rather unfinished. It seemed more like I was reading Mr. Caruso's notes on plots for stories rather than completed stories themselves. A good short story can be a difficult thing to pull off -- and he does ok on occasion. Mr. Caruso just misses more than he hits and in those stories, the reader is left hanging with no sense of closure. ( )

Oh my gosh... what a mess of stories. This collection has 16 stories. Frankly, if it hadn't been a Library Thing Early Reviewer copy, I would have stopped after the 2nd or 3rd story. Most of the stories end abruptly, or feel as if they don't have a real ending at all. There are POV issues, and tense issues.
There are a couple of stories in the last half that are worth reading. "Snapshots from a Family Album" and "Hellfire are good", and "They'll Call me Whistlin Pete" isn't bad, but overall, this is a disappointing collection.
Beyond the issues with the content, there's a formatting problem. The author has chosen to begin each story on an odd-numbered page, even though this is an e-book. So periodically, there's an extra page, to accommodate the odd-page start. While this might be desirable in print format, where you have left side and right side pages, there's no reason to apply this practice in an e-book. ( )

Tales of perversity is right, but not my kind. Lots of blood and vengeance, sometimes taken out on the wrong person (and sometimes not), in different settings from old West to modern community college. ( )
