    Wow

    Expertly crafted tale of terror and sadness. The author instills within the reader the mental anguish and fears of a family dealing with "something" that can't possibly be real, but is. - Easily one of the best novellas i've read.

    The Mulch Pile Delivers

    I must admit, I love a good monster story. The more obscure or interesting, the better. With "The Mulch Pile" I expected an "Attack of the Killer _______" story, but received a highly emotional journey with deep characters and a flowing melancholy. With monsters.

    This isn't your average horror story, where characters are static and the plot predictable. Albert Berg brings a more literary form of storytelling to the genre, and does it very well. Perhaps the most poignant aspect of this story is the explicit fear it's characters carry. It is believable, genuine, and sometimes, a bit close to home.

    "The Mulch Pile" is a very quick and effective read. A great buy for any novella lover. It might break your heart, it might scare you, but in the end, I think you will be very satisfied with it.

    literary horror

    This is a deep and layered story, I've read it twice through and enjoyed it even more the second time. It has a lot of meaning that you don't catch right away.
    This is a good, well written story about a terrifying monstrous mulch pile that terrorizes a family.
    It's also a good story about a family who terrorizes each other.
    It's also a good story about the terror within the narrator.
    I was really enthralled by the antagonists in this book - each was completely understandable, and I felt like I knew the 'why' behind their actions. They also served to distract me from the real antagonist of the book.
    So I highly recommend this book.
