Badass storyteller

You can never go wrong with purchasing any book from this author. This was a great book of short horror stories and well worth the dollar it cost. The stories are dark and pull you in so that you are making sure you have a light on. I love his books and have read all i could find. If you love good dark horror stories this is the book you want.

This includes 9 new horrer stories (the other two can be read from the sample) and it has about 250 pages but around 40 of those are a sample of one of his other books. Overall for a buck this is a great read from a great author. Keep them coming!
