A very short collection of even shorter stories. Most of them were really good; the weakest pieces in the collection I'd still consider to be decent writing. I'm not too familiar with this "microshort" format, this was essentially my first introduction. I liked it a lot. While the collection is only 53 pages in my reader, it was the right length. Too many of these shorts

Not a bad collection, the amount of hits were more than duds. Easy one night read with the occasional photo to creep you out.

This book was okay, most of the stories were pretty good. A few were super creepy, one was mildly disturbing, and a couple were lame. Basically a collection of creepypasta.

Keeping in mind I'm someone who has watched movies such as Martyrs and can watch/read crime scene details while keeping a straight head...

This book was far too disturbing. Basically it felt like the authors wrote these stories merely for shock value. It included things like graphic cannibalism, sexually gratifying murder, pedophila, and extreme perversion all around. Particularly the stories by "B.C Lawson" disturbed me and made me wonder if he is actually a perverted serial killer. And who want

Some stories in this collection -- particularly those by D.G. Collins(IPostAtMidnight) and Kelsey "CaseByCase" Donald -- were incredible; well-written and chilling. Unfortunately, the others were okay at best, and at worst not worth the time spent reading; every cheap, gorey, gratuitous cliche of creepypasta is paraded here to try and pique the reader's interest.

If you're purchasing this (which may well be worth it if you're a fan of alternative horror), it's better to imagine that you're payin

I was somewhat disappointed in this book in that it was advertised as in horror genre,but I really couldn't find the horror except in a few of the stories. Most of them were almost funny in a wicked sort of way. I'm not saying that the book isn't worth reading by any means, I did enjoy it. It just isn't the kind of book that will keep you up late at night or make you hide under the covers!

I'm a fan of horror and I'm a fan of micro-fiction (since I write some myself), so this was/still is a great book for me. There is a large majority of stories in it but it could use a few more. Some of the stories hit me in the gut and some made me think about them for a second. Anyway, a perfect read for a rainy day. Or night.

Uneasily some of the stories were good,others just gross. A lot of the last chapter is disgusting to the point that I skipped much of it.

I read a few stories each night before bed and each time I just loved the stories. Great flash fiction collection!
