Really good collection of short stories. I had read a few individually recently but this was a chance to finally read them all. As with any short story collection I liked some better than others, but they were all so varied and interesting the collection overall was great. There were a few guest stories from other authors included, and the stories fit right in. There's a little bit of something for everyone: monsters, gore, humor, even a few with happy endings.

IRW never disappoints

I loved each and every A-Z story. Both of the D's were great! Sad this series is over but I'll definitely be re-reading this collection. Thanks for the gross outs, terror, humor & entertainment Mr. W! Highly recommend this to all fans of modern horror!

An okay collection of short stories, but there wasn't any that left me wanting more.

I love Wright, he's such a talented author, but this collection didn't feel like his to me. It was good enough, jam packed with stories, but none of them particularly great. Some were fun and cheesy Bmovie horror, but otherwise unremarkable.

Wow--this was a great book. I love how some of the stories have a subtly creepy feel. But even more, I love how most of the endings do a complete turnaround, and end up being more surprising than I ever thought possible. I would definitely recommend this compilation to all lovers of great horror fiction--you will not be disappointed.

A is for Anti-Christ
Issac is 16 and ready to become a man, with the party of a life time especially with his parents out of the house!
As the teenagers slowly get more drunk, Isaacs every wish, desire and comment appear to be coming true, a bit worrying in some cases, smirk worthy in some but slowly building scary tension overall.
The finale has some very gory mental images but the ending was flat and rushed IMO.
I liked the reference to the horror movie that was clever.

This is the first collection of short stories that delivers awesome reading in every incredible story if you have read any of IRW's work in the past you know he always delivers an attention grabbing tale. But, A-Zach of Horrors exceeds all expections. That should be enough said but I feel compelled to include the fact that most of these will made me more than a little scared. However , U is for Urinary Tract terrified me as well as COMPLETELY freaked me out plus it has horrible, horrifying gross ...more

A Delightfully Dark Read.

I discovered this author after reading A is for Antichrist. I was keen to read the entire book. Iain Robb Wright shows a brilliant imagination with this diverse collection of stories. His descriptions are minimal, preferring to launch the reader right into the action which I love. P for peeling was a particular favourite. I'd recommend this one for fans of the short story.

Pretty good collection of short stories.

Iain Rob Wright is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. I have read a few of his books and loved every single one of them. This is of no exception. I very much enjoyed reading these short stories. There is maybe one or two of them that aren't so great but the rest are a very good read.

Brilliant collection of stories all in one book. Each and every one has the potential to be a novel. Only one story truly crossed me out though and that was P for Peeling. M for Matty-bob was funny. Loved a stories though and will no doubt 're visit at some point.

I cannot rate Iain Rob Wright enough. This collection of stories has something for every horror fan. I enjoyed each one with a few of them I was left wanting more. A great book to have to hand for a quick horror fix and one I'll dip into again.

This book is great fun to read. All of the stories are totally different and really spooky. The only drawback to this book is that it ended. What a blast while it lasted though.

A wonderful mix of 26 thrillers and horror stories. Some of these stories hit me deep. Just imagining some of these things happening to you is pure terror.

Horror at its best

Great selection of stories, from scary to horrific, funny to sad. Only read two of Iain’s books so far but I am a fan already and will long be.

The stories are pretty much 50/50. Half of them were pretty good the others were awful. You kind of expect that in short story compilations though.

Rereading this book, I didn't like it nearly as much as the first time and while I was disappointed by this change in myself, it didn't take me long to figure out why my feelings had changed.
Most of the impact of both horror and short stories comes from the shock factor and twists and this time I didn't even relive that.
I reread books a lot so this was unusual for me.
This time, however, since I wasn't racing through the alphabet of stories to find the next 'horrifying' moment, I had an epiphany-

Iain Rob Wright creates highly entertaining stories of which this collection is a prime example. Short but sweet he takes you through the letters of the alphabet and has a creepy treat for each. 26 titles later you feel like you've seen every little corner of the author's dark and twisted mind. One or two of them not only push the boundaries but completely shatter them. Read: 'banned' Personally I think this collection would be better without these as they are simply too disgusting, but the rest ...more

Terrifyingly Awesome

This is the first book I've read of Mr. Wright's but I can assure you it will not be the last. I'm relatively new to the horror genre but it's quickly become one of my favorites! What I loved so much about this book was the variety in the stories. Each one had its own terrifying and/or disturbingly qualities that kept me hooked and flipping through the pages quickly. Some of the stories were kind of hard to stomach, but to me that speaks to the quality of writing here. If you

An excellent fear filled ride!

This compilation of terror plagued stories has something for everyone! Each reader will find at least one story that they will absolutely love, most likely more than one! Mr. Iain Rob Wright is an absolute natural talent when it comes to putting an idea on a page, and giving the reader an instant mental image of said idea. I am always saddened when I find myself coming to the end of one of his books, but then again...all I need do is run to the Amazon store and purc
