Shelves: horror, short-stories
I really enjoyed this collection of dark and twisted short stories by the talented Kealan Burke. One thing I particularly liked were the introductions to each story by the author about what inspired him to write them. Highly recommended for horror fans.

Ravenous Ghosts, is a collection of 19 twisted tales of mystery, madness and horror. One interesting thing that Burke does, is to give a small introduction on what inspired him to write the story. Burke, demonstrates sheer terror, without any gore. A few of these tales from the dark side, would have made good episodes of The Twilight Zone. Two of my favorite stories from this collection are, Sparrow Man, what mysterious powers does a man have that can make sparrows drop dead from the sky like ra ...more

An excellent book of short stories. A very strong collection of different styles, both terror and horror. Some I liked a lot, others I really loved!

This is my first novel from Kealan Patrick Burke, and I'm definitely going to be checking out his other offerings. I usually hate short stories because I like to get to know the characters and feel like I'm living in the world created by the author. This was a really good short story collection and that's saying a lot for just one author working on it. Usually I like 1 or 2 from a collection and there were only 1 or 2 that I didn't like. Horror is a tough subject to nail and not having 300+ page ...more

The premise of this book involves characters that are diverse and dark, with the book containing nineteen twisted tales in all. They are fast paced and intriguingly mysterious, as the author plays with the force of his words and sucks the reader in. Another interesting add is that Burke gives an anecdote beforehand about what was going through his mind when he wrote the tale. This gives the reader a sense of him being present, brooding in the background. No wonder he has a following and was awar ...more
This is a warning.
My death will be the true beginning of the end.

So-so read. There were a number of good ones but the majority didn't really creep me the hell off.
