    I've just read the Reaper's Game, a short story from this collection.

    Taken from the author’s Creatures and Crypts collection, The Reaper’s Game by John Grover is a satisfyingly gruesome and scary tale of man vs. Death.
    A murderer who considers himself the perfect killing machine, better even than death, is challenged by the ultimate foe in this tale. A mad battle ensues with computer graphic precision and scares through every doorway, but this enemy’s playing on his own turf, and how can death be vanquished?
    The story builds to a satisfying (though grisly) denouement that might leave you wondering, just who is on whose side. A classic horror story, macabre, intriguing, and skillfully imaginative, the Reaper’s Game is an enjoyable introduction to this prolific writer’s short story collections.

    Disclosure: I was lucky enough to find a free ecopy of this story
