Good read

This was an interesting read. The stories in this book were short and to the point. A good variety of demented tales, something for everyones twisted mind. Some of my favorites include - Mortal Ink, An Eye for an Eye, and A Turkey's Thanksgiving. These stories will make you think and wonder..could they be true? I sure hope not.
