I can say I honestly did not know what to expect. I received the book free through good reads and since I love to read most anything I opened this up.

I have received a free copy of this book through a GoodReads First Reads giveaway.
I've read that short stories catch a lot of flack in the literary world, but they have been and will remain my absolute favorite.
Especially with authors like Michael Montoure contributing. This book contains 12 stories, they range from unsettling to downright terrifying. I thought about a quick review of individual stories, but I'll spare you that horror. His is way better. Read it!

Such an amazing collection of creepy, scary & disturbing short stories! I will absolutely be reading the wolf/red riding hood story during our next camping trip! So many fun things to read to unsuspecting friends late at night!!
I'm glad I was able to read this 10th anniversary edition of it because the authors’ notes are wonderful! Plus you get a 'lil behind the scenes action about each story at the end of the book, which is awesome! I'm looking so forward to the next book!
