    Very well done.

    At certain points throughout the book, I found myself horrified and loving it. With a bit of the good vs. evil of The thing in the barn, to the wreaking havoc of The Nurse. these stories are close to the brand of horror I've read before,but much more graphic. But yet, it felt foreign and refressing to me. I couldn't stop reading it for the life of me. His characters are ALWAYS well represented and so vivid. I find I actually start caring for them (and hating them as well), and love the character development, especially in Walsh's RTE 236, where he can afford to go so in depth. And while every ending wasn't exactly what I had anticipated, I guess that fact alone is a good thing. Deep down, I wanted something else to happen, but even though it didn't, I wasn't let down, and quite surprised by the climax.


    I loved it. Well done sir.

    Mr. Walsh's work is Addictive.

    A great book of horror. Never slow and striaght forward text...I love it! Each story gets more interesting as they go on. No boring text you just want to keep reading to see what other creepy creatures are introduced next.

    Awesome!

    Good horror stories with a lot of mayhem, sex, and surpries thrown in. This is my new favorite book. The Author can tell a very vivid detailed story. I really liked "The Nurse" A story set during a modern day civil war with a vampire who hunts the wounded at a field hospital. If that isn't enough she sexually molests her victims before killing them. I won't say anymore as to not spoil the story for any future readers except to say...Wow! What an imagination MR. Walsh has. All six stories are great and have surprise endings that just floored me. When finished this book leaves you wanting more.

    Bravo Mr. Walsh

    6 chilling stories put together here that offer a variety of different themes of horror. Horror, sex, redemption, drama, tragedy this volume contains it all. This is an amazing book. Walsh has taken old story lines and has written them with a fresh new approach. I really enjoyed reading this work and not once was I disappointed. I really enjoyed how each story has a surprise ending that I didn't see coming. Well done Mr. Walsh.

    High Praise

    This Author takes the world of the supernatural in a tight grip and runs with it. The book is witty, clever and smartly done. The book contains six short stories of assorted Ghouls, Vampires, Werewolves, and Ghosts. Added to this mix is that two of the stories contain supercharged sexually perverted encounters. These encounters are woven nicely into the surrounding world of the supernatural creatures. Walsh just might become one of the most popular writers of the twenty first century.

    Twisted

    I liked it! Mister Walsh's view on horror is fresh and impressive. Though as I read it, I found what I believe to be maybe inside jokes, that I didn't get, and this might be confusing for some, but I still really did like it. I won't give any of the plots away, but I will say that my favorite "The Nurse" was very twisted and perverted. This man's mind is a true basin for things that go bump in the night. What can I say but buy it...read it...you'll not regret it.

    Great Book!

    This book was an X mas present and I couldn't put it down. I finished it in two days. It's full of alternate scary and perverted realities. The author maybe a little nutty and his writing shows this. It's amazing! If you like twisted horror I really think you should read this. It was imaginative and decently solid.

    One of the best

    These stories are amazing. In two of the stories the Author has woven raw sex into the surrounding horror and the mix flows great. What Mayhem! I can't say enough good things about this book...Excellent. If you are a true fan of horror then read this book you won't be disappointed.

    Mr. Walsh's first book?

    If so then please write more! I've read a lot of horror and this has to be my favorite book to date. The details he uses to build characters and their surroundings is amazing. His imagination is unbelievable. I only wish his stories were longer.

    Terrific horror

    I did not know what to expect, but this book is very good. I love the gore, suspense and outright mayhem. I have quickly become a big Walsh fan. I think he is a great story teller. I would very much like to see more of his work.

    Heart Pounding

    This volume is a outstanding collection of some of the finest horror tales I have ever read. The Author does not fail to send shivers down my spine. I could feel myself lost in fear of the places and people that I would never want to see or meet. The Author clearly wants you to jump, squirm and be disgusted. The only problem I have with Mr. Walsh's stories is that they all end too soon.

    Great Book

    I really enjoyed Mr. Walsh's book. It is full of horror and violence and sex. To be honest I could compare his writing style to King or Barker. The storylines are excellent with twists at the end of each. Once I began reading I couldn't put it down. The overall concept of each story was fresh and exciting. I thought it was a great read.

    Excellent Read

    Scott Walsh-I believe you maybe a first time author. If so I hope you reach best seller status with this work and continue writing. Here within is the most astonishing collection of short horror stories I have ever read. It hooked me from the very first story and never let up on its grip, even after I finished the book. This is a must have for any fan of horror or for anyone who wants to get more horror and suspense for their dollar.

    Facinating

    Scott Walsh has written 6 great thrillers filled with horror and supernatural elements. The Antagonist in each story balances the Protagonist in such a way as to make each story very realistic in its telling. There is a lot of action, horror and violence. The sex scenes are nicely wrapped in the surrounding world of mayhem. A must read for anyone who is a fan of this subject matter. I would like to see more of his work.

    Scary and Thrilling

    These six stories are by far some of the best horror I've read in a long time. Scott Walsh has captured the true meaning of fear in each tale. I highly recommend this book to any fan of horror. I liked the fact that each story ends with a surprise twist. Without giving any plots away I hope he continues along this field. I would very much like to see what Mr. Walsh releases next.

    6 Degrees Of Reality

    One of the most intense and detailed books I have ever read. Scott Walsh truly brings these characters to life. I highly recommend it to horror fans. There are no slow parts or wasted text. You will not regret reading it.

    6 Degrees Of Reality

    I found the stories very interesting. I really liked how real the characters came across when woven within the horror and violence that surrounds them. The stories are fast and graphic. I would have liked to have seen Mr.Walsh turn each short story into a full length novel, that would have been very cool.
