ABERRANT is defined as unusual, abnormal or different. The stories in this book not only differ from most of what you read, but also wildly from each other.

A diverse (adverse, perverse? ;^) collection of short, punchy horror stories that manage in just a few pages to be disturbingly evocative, amusingly perceptive and guiltily fun.

I haven't read the author's earlier work but this book is certainly an excellent place to start. He has found his voice and is confident enough to play with ideas and the reader to both of our benefit. Takes me back to my carefree days of reading sci-fi short stories, like mental fireworks exploding with new ideas and pe

This book is a quick read, but it will stay with you after you are done. The stories range from quick shots of zombies and monsters to longer vignettes about women disappearing under the ocean and Adam taking out Cain. Given this, I think there is something in here for everyone.

There are 22 stories in Ken MacGregor’s ‘Aberrant Mind,’ some are only a page or two long, others a deal longer. Some of the stories are very visceral, and as such will appeal to many readers. Ken likes monsters; they appear often in this book, and in a range of different forms from the monstrous figure thousands of feet high in ‘The abduction of Glynis Johnson’ – more god than monster, to Gavin, a diffident and boy-like werewolf who appears in ‘Seawolf’ and then later in ‘Arctic Wolf.’ Gavin is ...more

I really enjoyed the stories in this book. The short stories quickly draw you in, and make you wonder what will happen. Then at the end you think, "Huh, I didn't expect that" and you can't wait to start the next one to see where it will take you. Witty humor. You really care about what happens to the characters. I highly recommend this book.

A creepy page turner. Thank you, Ken, for some heroes (or anti-heroes) I could cheer for and some of them living. Read this one with the lights on.....especially Tom's Person Demon's.
Creative, terrifying, and often funny.
If you like horror, then I bet you'll love it.
Now - must read something fluffy.

And for my Ypsi freinds - he's a local.
