Overview

Love and evil know no bounds!

Turn the page and enter a world of shadow, as Michael West brings together his most disturbing short stories--twisted tales of forbidden desires and ghoulish deeds, where nightmares manifest in the most mundane and unlikely of places...

The basement of a Japanese restaurant, where a seductive creature promises comfort to a lonely hitman, if only he will set her free...

A ruined city, where survivors of a natural disaster have become prey to something unnatural...

An Indiana farmhouse, where a frightened child attempts to fool the Angel of Death...

And the darkest regions of space, where a man fights to protect the woman he loves from invaders only he can see...

Ten reasons to lock your doors.

Ten reasons to keep the lights on.

Ten reasons why you may never sleep again.

Never heard of this author, but I'm looking for my next book, and Michael West is at the top of my list. Excellent writing, character development, and stories that kept me turning pages until the very end. They were all great, but my favorite story in this collection was Einstein's Slingshot.

From well-written introduction (by Gary A. Braunbeck) to final haunting explanation, Michael West’s Skull Full of Kisses kept me glued to the page and eager for more. Each story’s completely new and different, yet they hang together beautifully, a well-carved, well-crafted collection like the horror room in an art gallery, filled with mystery, suspense and the awesome power of unspoken fears seeping into the reader’s imagination. Author Michael West has that rare skill which knows when to let the imagination take over. Something too awful for a gangster to contemplate? Then see it in your own mind’s eye and the page becomes your escape, with the author’s words your guide. From violence to tragedy to outer space, with vivid descriptions of almost innocence, the sound of convincing dialog, the company of honestly flawed characters, and the breathtaking surprise of well-timed scares, this collection of ten short tales will take you everywhere and leave you haunted. My absolute favorite is Goodnight; it stays with me still—a classic, wonderful, human story, with the magic of goodnight instead of goodbye, and the skill of horror held bound in the grasp of beauty, kindness and depth. Once that tale’s done, all that’s left is to thank the author for a wonderful experience. Disclosure: I won an ecopy and I’m offering my honest review. I think I’ve found a new favorite author!

A truly terrifying collection of well-crafted short stories! My personal favorites are "To Know How to See" and my VERY favorite--"Goodnight". I challenge anyone to read that one without a tear in your eye!
