Strange, wierd, and creepy!
Before Jeff Mariotte asked if he could be a part of my Frightfest I had never heard of this author. When I look at some of the works under his name, I couldn't believe that I had never heard of him. He told me "I'm the most unknown famous horror author in the business." This guy has written books for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, CSI, Criminal Minds, 30 days of Nights! and yet I had never heard of him, is that not just crazy!Was this review helpful?

Nine Frights is a collection of very strange and creepy short stories. Each of them was unique in their own way, but some I liked more than others. Janey in Amber had one of those twilight zone fills to it. The Sick Doll, I didn't really care for much, but I really enjoyed, Santos del Infierno which was rather creepy, and The Strip was cool even though I am not a huge zombie fan. The Cloud had a really horrible ending, but was really creepy at the same time. Staking a Claim, was actually for funny than scary. Walkaway, was interesting and creepy. The Unpleasantness at the Circle P wasn't one of my favorites but still sort of creepy. World of Books this one was really cool! Definitely strange and to me the best of all the stories! This is called saving the best for last! lol
Jeff Mariotte gives a small introduction to each story, giving you a little background about himself and why he wrote each story which I found very interesting. I think if you like weird, strange and slightly creepy short stories then you will like the stories in Nine Frights.
