About the Author

Andy Love was born and raised in Scotland. Now at the tender age of 50, he lives with his wife and cat. He also looks forward to visits from his son, daughter and four grandchildren.
Andy states “I have always loved writing from a very young age, but the educational system didn’t encourage this as a proper job. After constantly being chastised and pulled away from writing, I gave up until after I left the educational production machine.
Andy draws his inspiration from a sordid, brutal and horrific Scottish history, where there is an abundance of fables, folklores, murders and superstitions.
Andy’s passion for writing grew over the years and he is excited about the release of Short Shocks II, out now.
As Andy states "It's bigger, beefier, and scarier than a hot poker sizzling between your ears."

Short Shocks Volume One by Andy Love is a riveting collection of short Gothic stories. It is a pensive and stirring book that grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go until the very end. The first story in Short Shocks called 'Minion' concerns itself with a nobleman who is summoned to the estate of a wealthy lord in order to research the lord's family lineage. However, upon arrival to the lord's estate, the nobleman encounters a series of strange and disturbing events which ultimately causes him to realize that there is more to the mysterious lord than meets the eye. In the process, the nobleman, to his surprise and growing consternation, discovers that he shares a connection with the lord and is hence ensnared in an ancient legend. The second story featured in Short Shocks appropriately named 'A Night With Frost' is the very frightening tale of a little girl named Jenny who is being hunted by the evil visage of Jack Frost. Frost is a relentless and cruel spirit determined to destroy the child at any cost. The only thing that stands between Frost and Jenny is her father. This riveting account of a dark cat and mouse game takes readers on a chilling ride of one man's battle against the supernatural. Fans of Lovecraftian-styled stories would be right at home reading this volume. The prose is breathtaking and the tales heart stopping. Long after I had finished reading the final page of this book, I find my thoughts constantly reflecting on its brooding tales. If I have one complaint is that Short Shocks is quite literally too short. I was tempted to give this book a lower score due to the fact that a reader can breeze through the two tales in this book in under an hour. I truly believe that this book would have been better served if it contained more stories. However, in light of the sheer brilliance and quality of what is present in the book, I decided to give it the highest rating possible. It truly does deliver what it promises. I only wish that it could have delivered more. With that said, anyone who loves dark, Gothic stories will enjoy the pair of macabre yarns included in Short Shocks. Perhaps you too will find yourself looking over your shoulder or glancing at every fleeting shadow wondering if someone is in the dark watching you.

The stories were too long and dragged out. I had to force myself to finish them.
