After reading Changes by Charles Colyott, I was eager to dive into more of his writing. I'd been warned that this collection is dark and twisted, and indeed it is. But I like dark and twisted, so I proceeded past the caution sign. I found these stories are well written and oddly captivating (like a bad accident you can't look away from).

The Proposal explores the question of what we'd do for love, and what happens when the one we love is in love with another. But, of course, the story is deeper t

This book is like Chicken Soup for the Soul, if your soul has been crushed by a dark unspeakable evil. The standouts:

Severance -- A cool tale of vengeance with a Twilight Zoney feel.
The Proposal -- A tale of true love, but probably not the good kind.
TEETHgrinder -- He had 49 teeth by the time he was 6. And no matter how many were pulled, more came in. So, of course, he had to do something with those teeth.
Carrion Moon -- A mixture of werewolf and zombies.
Soft, like Her -- Another tale of love

A collection of dark, twisted, and rather entertaining short stories, more than a few of them I wished there had been more of. One is pretty gross, but to the authors credit, you are warned...doesn't stop you from reading it, but at least you can prepare yourself.
