These five short stories by Jen Ponce are a perfect read for October, although, I do believe these tales will stay with me for a lifetime. Since I have read other books by this novelist, I knew Things That Creep would be just as creepy. I was creepified! And I still am!
I can't walk down the hallway in my house without thinking of A Dark Hallway. I can't look at a penny without thinking of One Smart Penny. I can't pick out something to wear without getting chills over Gown She as Buried In. I'm a

This review and more on my blog at [Roxie Writes].

I'm going to briefly summarize each story as spoiler-free as possible with my review.

I read this collection as part of my #yearofindiewomen

The Gown She Was Buried In
This is a story about a widower who constantly sees his dead wife after he buries her. No one believes him except his daughter who sees her, too. Then, one day he wakes up with the dress she was buried in with him in his bed.

I'll be honest, I didn't really "get" this story. When I f

Hitchcock like thrillers

Jen Ponce will no doubt be well known soon as a literary powerhouse for the thriller genre. I hesitate to use horror as that conjures images of monsters, Gore and in your face action. What her stories do is create a puzzle, one that has you wide eyed , turning the pages not wanting to put it down. It. Then the stories cleverly leave you with ironic twists. It reminded me of Alfred Hitchcock Presents or The Twighlight Zone. Often a lesson in human behavior and sometimes a

Things That Creep

Well, I was looking for more Creepy,Scary in these stories but I was a little disappointed. A couple were good but I would have liked to see more scarred to turn the next page and goose bump stuff. It takes a lot for me to be Scared stiff and this didn't do it for me. Thought the Author has a good imagination.

Definitely Some Skin Crawling Stuff Here!

The stories are a little short, and one or two of them left me feeling like I missed something, but as a whole it was a good read. Would really like to see this author go a little deeper into these and republish at a later date, but that's just my opinion!

Very interesting collection of short stories

I liked almost every story but the Dark Hallway, the Dress She Was Buried in, and One Smart Penny were my favs. I recommend it.

Hello! I'm a writer from Nebraska who enjoys fantasy of all kinds. Stories don't always seem quite as much fun without some element of magic.

I started out writing romances because that's what my best friend and I loved to read. (My other best friend and I wrote about our science teacher being an alien and hard boiled detectives.) I have a varied and exciting inner fantasy life, you might say.
