Very fun collecton, full review to come.

* I'm surely going to Hell for my thoughts, (and very audible laughter), while reading ANTE UP. I'll share the deets in the review ;)
Some of these stories were horrifying, some were lame. I actuall accidentally deleted the book from my Amazon account before I was done so I did not get to finish it. lol. I was just trying to clean up my e-books! Not willing to pay 99 cents to finish it. :/

I wouldn’t say the stories were scary

I would not call these stories scary.... yes some are creepy, but they are more psychological and thrilling than scary. But I will say these stories are written amazingly. The story structures and flow are incredible. Highly recommend!

What a bunch of tasty little gems! I do love a good short story, particularly when it's of the horror/thriller/paranormal variety, and this book is full of them!

I particularly liked "Wipeout," a tale of an ornery old lady who finally gets her comeuppance, and "Cold" (hello? Who doesn't love a creepy morgue tale?), to name a few, but there is really something in this collection for all tastes, from ghostly children, to an E.T.

Little Terrors is full of just that. And that's what makes it so much

This British author has a twisted, delightfully humorous mind! There is a wonderful variety of selections and I enjoyed every one! Beware the blue language and occasional gay slurs. These devices, however, are essential to the characters. And they are definitely characters! The only downside is the British spellings and references. So if you have a twisted sense of humor and ready for a quick ride of offbeat horror jump on!

Very good collection of scary stories. Most of them came up with an interesting twist at the end. My favorite was the first story that told of a young boy who entered a neighbor's haunted house on a dare with the promise of his friend's sister to be his prize. That brought my new favorite quote: "Young love is too hopeful for such realism."

Expected More

Not as good as the last two book's by Mr Jester, Not as scary as I thought after reading the reviews. If you want something that's hard to put down and creeps you out it's not this one. Some reader's must not know what terrifying means.

An excellent collection of short stories. One of them, The Polystyrene Man, is really creepy and depressing, but not in the traditional sense. I loved it! The other stories are entertaining too, and the plots are great. Very recommendable!

There were a couple short stories in this book that were actually good, but most were very subpar, sadly.

This is a great collection of short stories with some very memorable characters and dark, twisted plots. My personal favourite is "Wipeout", a tale of feuding neighbours.

Good short stories. Creepy in the 'Are You Afraid of the Dark' style.

This book was okay but I didn't find it all that great. I do love horror books though and it has some good moments.

Free download from Amazon.

It was alright. There were a couple of true gems in the book, but I guess I was hoping for more.

Not worth the time. Only a couple of stories rated the two stars.
