This short story is creepy and violent, just what it was supposed to be. While the title character, The Arrogant Man, isn’t a character I’d cry over, he still suffered things no one should be put through. It made me think of Dexter in a way since this family has targeted a “bad guy”, but Dexter has more reasoning behind it – these chicks are just sick and having fun tormenting this guy. The author has a seriously wicked mind and the story would translate well in

I don't read that much horror fiction but around this time of year I like to pick up a few and when I do I like them to be bloody and violent as I'm not weak stomached and The arrogant man had both of these things so I was happy.
It starts off with Mathew, who is every bit the arrogant man the title suggests, I really didn't like him but I certainly wouldn't say he deserved what he got.
The girls come up with some imaginative tortures for their hostage and it was thrilling to read wondering if he

I am a fan of horror novels and have been since I was a child. When I received the request from Tabitha to review this short story I was excited and couldn't wait to dive into this creepy tale. Halloween is by far my favorite time of year and I couldn’t think of a better way to ring in Halloweens Eve than with a spooky story.

I really love when a horror novel takes something in daily life and twist it to scare the crap out of me as the reader. In this short story Mathe

Oh, my what a magnificent, creepily, chilling horror short story!!! Wow this author knows how to really pull you into a story quickly, at the same time you feel distress and alarm as you read the story unfolding. I already have some of her other books in my want to read file.

The synopsis does a great job of telling you what the story is about, but it can’t express the complete horror of this story. I’m a mom and imagine my shock and disgust when I was rooting

I read this after reading Ms. Short’s ‘Please Do Feed The Animals Zoo’.

Again, the tale was nicely set up but this time the protagonist is the far less likeable Arrogant Man of the title. Despite the unpleasant nature of the main character, you still find yourself on his side after he ends up at the mercy of a most unpleasant all female family.

Knowing that the Arrogant Man is due some comeuppance doesn’t make his ordeal any less excruciating. You find yourself putting on his shoes and thinking wh

'The Corpses of Old Farm Hill Road: The Arrogant Man' is a 43 page short story that will give you the jeepers creepers! I chose to read it late at night so I could get the FULL creep out effect. If you're looking for a quick Halloween read you found it! This is one of those stories where you find yourself with your mouth open thinking "Wow, this character is beyond disturbing!'' Tabitha Short engages the reader right from the get go, which is a BIG must when writing a short story. Once she

What happens when a man who lives to control others meets a family of women who can only feel pleasure by causing pain? The horror progresses and is compounded by each meticulous, mundane detail, proceeding at a deliberate pace until the tension is unbearable. Believable and utterly chilling. A quick but disturbing read.
