So, some of you have yet to read this mind-altering stack of stories, huh? All I can say is you better be prepared¿. You better be prepared to throw any sense of peace you now appreciate in your life right into the trash. It used to be I could hop in the car and take a leisurely drive on a Sunday afternoon. NO MORE! Now I pass a bridge, I see a cycle of horror that goes on forever. I pass a country home, I see children, a stranger and death. A tiny school house seems to harbor hundreds of pairs of ghostly eyes. Even in the city, I can find no solace because with graffiti comes images straight from hell. So, go ahead¿go ahead and read this tomb of twisted and dark tales, but don¿t say I didn¿t warn you. And God forbid you ever receive a summons to court¿that story still gives me shivers. Bravo, Mr. Hautala for a job too well done. Your haunted fan, Tim Greaton, author of The Santa Shop.

I devoured this book in a day and I'm totally looking out for another like it. Another great work by Hautala.

I loved Bedbugs. Over the years I have read and enjoyed many of Rick Hautala's novels. I find his style uncomplicated and to the point. Too many horror writers try too hard to be literary when what they should be doing is telling a good story. And telling a good story is what Rick Hautala does best. In Bedbugs he has offered up a veritable potpourri of nightmarish scenarios and offbeat characters, giving his readers a wide, cross-sectional look into the depths of a fertile imagination. In my opinion Rick Hautala is a writer at the top of his form. Good going, Rick. Can't wait for the next one!

I am a fan of all good horror. I found this book both entertaining and frightening. Short stories that make want to check under your bed and sleep with your eyes open. Good reading for a good scare.
