Many years ago I stopped reading so-called horror novels because I felt there was already more than enough real-life horror in the world. However, out of curiosity, I started reading Rick's collection of short stories and found myself once again appreciating the emotions that a well told SCARY tale can bring about. I'm talking adrenaline rush from the first page to the last! Reed's writing style is beautifully poetic - and while some of the storylines and scenes are too gruesome to even begin to describe - the combination of Reed's tales leaves a reader truly inspired to seek out all the good and beauty that life has to offer!Was this review helpful?

Reed has a way of making the mundane into the nightmarish. These stories run the gamut from really funny (a 'morbidly obese' vampire/a dowdy lesbian meeting up with a bombshell in an internet chatroom) to deeply disturbing (a closeted young gay man hopes to make a connection with serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer/a woman finds a crime scene photo of a little girl's murder so unforgettable she relives the day the murder occurred). These are ten truly gripping, truly terrifying tales of mostly everyday horror. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
