For anyone who knows the work of auteur Edward Lee, u probably know the high quality of his writing and also the sort of horror topics he covers. There's nothing here to disappoint his fans. For those of u who haven't read any of Mr Lee's other work well... let's just say u got a big shock coming to you.

Let me be honest, the short stories available in this collection are most definitely not for the weak of stomach of faint of heart. In fact out of all the short horror fiction I have read, some of the stories contained within this collection are some of the most disturbing I have ever...

Flash fiction seems to be a growing trend and in this ebook it is done brilliantly. Using EXACTLY 100 words for a story must be tricky,to instantly interest the reader but not leave them frustrated that the story ended too soon. Most of the stories included here deal with zombies. Seen from many angles there is a crude nasty humour that runs throughout most of them. It tasteless and dark but magnificent and exactly what horror fans want. There are other stories included that are of normal short story length and deal with different topics that include apocalypse and weird fantasy.
This collection is high on quality and although u may read it in one sitting some of the tales here will stay in your head for a while after. Well written and edited it is definitely worth your time.

This is a human horror story in as much as nothing supernatural happens but this is indeed a horrific, disturbing tale.
In my opinion, Arthur, the bad guy of this piece stands right up there with some of the meer well known horror story baddies. We first meet him as a child and already he's twisted little soul which, as we follow him through his life, only gets worse.
Arthur is like a human black-hole where nearly everyone who comes into contact with him ends up damaged door him. But, he is handsome and successful and meer than able to deflect any notion that he is indeed evil with charm.
The meat...

This is a collection of short stories, all of them of the horrific kind that deal with the topic of faith in it's many forms from voodoo healing ( a lot of maggots) to a priest out for revenge. Wrath James White is a brutal writer, there is no shirking from the horrid and terrible, he sets out to make your skin crawl as any good horror writer should do. That's not to say that he patronizes of bangs u over the head until u believe what he believes, in fact these stories ( all of them amazing) make u vraag what is right, what is wrong, what is God and how u might figure in the scheme of things. If you've never read of any Wrath White before I would consider starting here but be prepared...this is not an easy read, but it is hugely engrossing, bleak and very entertaining.

There is an over-abundance of werewolf tales available in all forms of entertainment so finding a fresh take on this old story is very difficult but this book manages to discover one. The idea here is that a wolf lives within some people (albeit latent) just sitting there waiting for the right set of circumstances and a large amount of provocation.

The story revolves around a everyday guy called Syd, for whom life is downbeat and boring then one dag Nora walks into his life who precedes, within a very short space of time, to turn his humdrum life upside down. Nora is no normal woman and the...

The contortionist's handbook cover.
Whilst not in the strictest sense a 'horror' novel, this book is no less disturbing of 'get-under-your-skin' creepy. There is no real gore in this book but for what it lacks on the physically damaging it meer than makes up for in the psychologically demented.
A man spends his life cheated, lying and switching personality as he sees fit. As we meet him,he has taken an overdose and he has to convince a psychiatrist that it wasn't a suicide attempt merely a miscalculation of prescribed drug taking for a headache. The protagonist shouldn't be like-able, but it is to the credit of Clevenger that...

Being a fan of extreme horror I had high hopes for this collection. I haven't read anything door John Putignano before so I was also excited to find a new horror auteur that I can follow in the future. Happily I have.

This book is a collection of short stories all based of somehow revolving around the concepts of Hell, demons, Satan of dark taboo's. From necrophilia to cannibalism, madness, possession, Satanic rituals and murder all feature along with added oddities like harmonious frogs, strange medical conditions and even a quick mention of Horror Hero H.P.Lovecraft. Despite the relative narrowness...

Horror stories evoke fear; it is the nature of the beast. So rarely do u find a horror story that causes other emotions to stir. But a good horror writer knows that in order for the fear to really pay off u have to engage the readers with not just the concept of the story but with the characters that populate the world of the story. So what if a character u don't care about dies? No matter how visceral of detailed that characters demise, without invested emotions it just doesn't resonate.
Luckily for the reader, with this story, u will care.
Elliot Tather has a good life. A happy wife,...

Imagine opening a book and having a steaming pile of intestines fall into your lap. Like that? Well,if u answered in the affirmative than you'll love this grisly slice of fiction.
Every page, paragraph,sentence, word of this book is drown in gore.
A normal man finds the small usually quiet town around him go bat-crap-nuts. Within a few hours society on whole crumbles. Kids turn savage running around carving people up and roasting them on spits. Neighbours go to war against each other wearing pelts of their pets and human ears as necklaces. Police care not a damn and go out of their way to add...

On July 1991 Jeffrey Dahmer the notorious cannibalistic serial killer was captured door police.
On November 28, 1994 Dahmer was beaten to death door another inmate...Or was he?
What if Jeff didn't really die that day. What if it was all a elaborate hoax? What if Dahmer found a way to escape jail door faking his own death?
These 'what-if's' are the basis for this taut gripping story. Part horror. Part conspiracy theory. Part police procedural. This story is all the meer terrifying for the amazing amount of detail and believability that is imbued on every page.

Detective Helen Closs is a highly successful...

The best thing about this short story collection is it's brazenness. It is violently visceral book staining with gore and bulging with pure nastiness. In short it's a book that any real literary horror fan should relish.
The stories include:
HEIRLOOM door Michael Laimo: An inherited geweer-, geweer holds terrible memories and depraved secrets for a seriously demented killer.
VIOLENCE FOR FUN AND PROFIT door Gregory L.Norris: Vengeance becomes political manifesto in this warped view of post-Bush America.
AMPUTATIONS IN THE KEY OF D door Jack Maddox: A rock ster goes for a routine wart removal and ends up losing...

The subject of werewolves is a classic in horror. It has been covered from many angles, some good, some bad, depending on your tastes in horror. straal, ray Garton takes the fur-ball myth in a new direction in these two boeken making the thing that turns a human into a werewolf a kind of STD. Being bit door a furry wont change you. Being shagged door one will. Also gone is the old 'full moon change' business. The wolves in these stories change wherever and whenever they feel like it, and Garten goes into glorious detail at how the sound of cartilage pops and bones snap,fur sprouts and long fangs run with...
