    I read this story in order to get a feel for the author and see if I wanted to purchase any of her other works. Potential readers should keep in mind that not only is this a revenge story about rape, but that it also counts as horror. That said, for a brief revenge fantasy it's pretty good. I am not sure that I entirely buy into the type of self-reflection the artist indulges in, but that slant set the stage nicely for what befell him. However, I preferred this story to what I skimmed of her "Butcher" piece. At this point, if the description of one of Brewton's stories really intrigued me, I'd purchase it. Otherwise, her style of writing alone wouldn't draw me in; her style combined with an idea I found attractive could be quite acceptable.

    "An Imagination for Horror that Knows No Bounds!" After reading Michael, i ought to have been prepared for The Artist Formerly Known as Alive. After all, Michael displays graphic violence, sexuality, and rage; and I loved it. The Artist Formerly Known as Alive, however, enters a category by itself. This story needs to become the anthem of women everywhere. What woman alive today {or not, as the case may be} has never experienced the insistence of someone else's desires, has never encountered an incident in which her "no" goes unheard, has never been told "well, it was all your fault anyway--you asked for it!"? Any woman free of that kind of history is well-blessed; but for those of us who aren't free of it, there's The Artist Formerly Known as Alive.

    "Justice served most cold" This story opens with the quote, "Revenge is a dish best served cold." While the quote reminds us to think before we act, to consider all the options and angles. For one woman, revenge is taken care of for her. Many women experience being put into a situation where we do not feel we have a way to fight- either physically, verbally, or any other way- or to escape. To make this emotional experience worse, many of these same women are told they derseved or brought it on themselves. The person responsible for the rape, either physical, mental, or emotional, is left free to continue to commit his form of mayhem. The woman is left without justice being served. In The Artists Formly Known As Alive, justice is served for a woman... for a price. The price she must pay is to help other women. This reader thinks it is a fair payment. I'm glad this story was told so people every where know that rape of any kind wasn't "asked for" or the... More > victim's fault. Let justice be served and this story read.< Less

    "Because a foot of barbed revenge will make men cringe" If only this was based on a true story. I'd settle it being inspired by true events. I read this on the heals of discovering a story about a 14 year old girl committing suicide after being stripped and molested by 5 classmates in school. Nothing would serve as better justice to rapists. On a critical note, the story was rich in discription. The build up of the artist is a classic example of a predator. A pityful excuse for a human being whose demise is well deserved and well executed. If we could only find an incarnation of the demon, I'm sure rape cases would find themselves in sharp decline. I'd love to see this on film.
