Fun collection of short stories I found on for free download.

(view spoiler)

I enjoyed all the stories on offer though I think the title story was probably the weakest. I particularly loved the story entitled 'Hobgoblin Horror', macabre and funny at the same time, what a combination!

The preview to the novel Sup
No Way Out features three stories.
The first one was quite different. I wouldn't go so far as to say it was spooky but it was interesting. I kind of expected it to go a certain way but then it did the opposite of what I thought it would, so that was an enjoyable surprise. The ending had me a little confused for a while too. I had to sit and think about it for a few minutes.
The second story I couldn't really get into. Mostly because there was a lot about baseball cards in it and I don't really kno
If you are (or have been) one of those iBooks surfers looking for free eBooks, I'm pretty sure you've seen this book before.

The basic premise of No Way Out is that this short book is a collection of three short scary stories that don't have to do anything with each other. Basically is a short book with three short novellas inside.

I hated how simple they were, they weren't even scary just annoyingly stupid. Seriously, this book was nonsense. I didn't see the point of it. All the stories ended wi

I enjoyed this quick read. The stories were well written. I also loved the preview of Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb. Can't wait to read it.

Nice stories

A couple of nice stories. I enjoyed the one with the man in the old folks home, involving goblins. Good work.
Like the spooky teen TV shows and novellas of the 80's and 90's, "No Way Out" is chilling but not overtly gory.

I like the cover art which perfectly corresponds with the first story. (The anthology is named after this first story.) Initially drawn to the book by its fascinating cover image, I found the different purple hues and eerie glow behind the windows rather intriguing and indicative of the mood and locations where the stories take place. MJ Ware truly has a way with words! His descriptions

This is a very well written book containing three short stories on the light terror theme, for kids and young adults. First story (No Way Out) is intense and has a simple plot. Two kids bet who would go inside a haunted house. The description of the scenery is excellent and the outcome is unpredictable. Second story (The Price of Friendship) is also good, although not that much scary. Two kids trade goods for "useless memories" and the consequences are to be seen. Third story (Hobgoblin Horror) ...more

By Randy Cook

I know it's for kids but I like Scary stories, I totally wish they would longer and really had an end instead of leaving you like WTF, but then again shouldn't complain that much I think for the age group there's good and it was a free download so.

It was really awesome and excited

They all had a great story and then a big punchline at the end. I would definitively recommend it for kids in fourth and fifth grade.

Fun read

This little collection was like a time warp. It took me back to the nineties, the good 'ol days of summer during my childhood. Cool, starry nights relieving the long, hot, fun filled days and me with my Goosebump books, a flash light and a snack. A great tribute and a great new read for my own kids to love and cherish while they're supposed to be sleeping. And of course, a trip down memory lane for me.

Poorly Written, Inaccurate Description

From the title, I was expecting a book of short stories. It's actually three short stories and two samples of other books -- basically ads. None of the tales are very engaging, or even scary, and the last one, which is about aliens, even sports very strange, poorly done illustrations.

Good book

It was really nice and I liked the art, but was a short book, so I gave it 4 stars.
And I enjoyed all the short stories that made me keep reading.

I'm not big on short stories so while well written, kind of a tease. Six more words required.....really? Can't be short and sweet review?

One star book.

It was alright for free. But maybe it would have been better if it was one really good story instead of lots of short mediocre ones.
