What I Thought:

David's writing amuses me LOL! Let me explain...this is an anthology of little horror stories and a super quick read but well worth the .99!

The author is writing a really gross story one minute and mixes it up with a stupid campy horror story next. (I say stupid in a good way!)

I liked that because I never knew what was coming. There are several that I'd love to see as longer tales or full length horrors. David has a great imagination so I hope to see more work like this.

About The Book:
(from Amazon)

Seventeen short horror stories from the author of 33 A.D. and Saying Goodbye to the Sun.

The Lake - Five college boys answer an ad to spend Spring Break by a remote lake in northern Maine, only to find out they should have gone to Panama city like everyone else.

The Spider and the Fly - A deranged old man leads a young boy into a trap, but who is really hunting who?

Exhibit A - Listen to a budding serial killer as he explains himself to his first victim.

Plus 14 mini horror “bites.”

BONUS: One Last Dinner Party - additional short story by David Dalglish, author of the Half Orc series.

  1. Nice review...short and sweet just like the sound of this story collection! That's the fun of a collection though, it's like Forest Gumps' box of chocolates "you never know what you're gonna get"....and the variety can make for a great read. Thanks for sharing!
