This might be unfair, because if you have not read much from this author – I’m sure this is a awesome collection of stories. But I personally felt a little ripped off, cause I read most of these stories elsewhere before. What I had not read before was decent, but I know this author can do better.
This is one of these books I got for free, and it’s so long ago that I don’t even recall if it was free on Amazon, or if it was a gift from someone. Anyways I got around to reading it, and dude – why has this been waiting for so long in my library? I think it’s a combination of the title and the cover, it just looks real bad – as in REAL bad. But whaddaya know, it isn’t! it is actually a really, really nice collection of horror shorts, and the good stories in there absolutely outweigh the bad. Also it has a load of stories and you absolutely get something for your money. I say, free or not – get it! While not all the stories are about hospitals or mental asylums (I seem to remember there were a couple where I wondered why he’d put them in there), they are almost all strong stories which are definitly worth a read.
I did not change my mind abt the cover, it is super lame – but for once I got caught by the cliche (you know the one about books and their covers).
A super solid, LARGE collection of short stories. Of course there is bound to be some weaker stories in there, but I honestly don’t recall them and only the really good ones comes to mind. I would absolutely 100% recommend this, not only will you get quality horror shorts, but you get a LOT of horror shorts for your money.
I really don’t know what to say; some of the stories were great, but it was like finding pearls in gravel. I think I might have expected too much of the “concept”. Still I give it 3 stars because when it’s good, it’s really damn good. Also there are many stories, so you get something for your money. =)
I enjoyed it immensely, I found there to be a variety of different takes on a lot of different themes, I did not find the author shy away from specific themes or povs. Absolutely worth your money if you like short horror stories with a substance.
