Funny. Gory. Twisted. And creepy.

Writing 100 word stories is no easy task - especially if you set yourself the task to write a hundred of them, all under the banner of Halloween. And Myk Pilgrim and Pippa Bailey pull it off with great aplomb. Their personalities shine through in their storytelling which is one of the elements that make these tales so enjoyable. Each tale ends with either a twist or a punchline or sometimes even a poignant idea for the reader to ponder.

The interesting thing while

Horror Drabbles. I love horror drabbles. And this book is filled with them, Drabbles and bonus horror shorts that will shock that look right off your face. Some of these evoke wicked giggles, others evoke horrified gasps. I was eating when I read this collection. I don’t recommend it. The second story shocked the food in my mouth into a rapid exit. Fortunately, the food already in my stomach remained there.

I read this book in one evening. I could not put it down. The stories are wonderfully crea

This was a fun little collection of micro-fiction that I would rate 3.5/5. I think the collection is a combination of several things. Some micro-fictions pack a brilliant punch, which is amazing since they're a couple of lines long. Often times it's worth giving two or three reads just to see all the nuances that are in the stories. Some of the poisoned candy bits are poems, which were a lot of fun and added a different kind of spice to the collection.

As a reading experience, I think this is a

Awesome fun

This collection is awesome! I love these bite-sized stories and each one had it’s own flavour. More than a few gave me a giggle, one had me squirming as it played out. While another was just brutal and ‘why! Why would you write this!??’
Absolutely worth a read!

I thoroughly enjoyed these fun-sized bites of horror. Even when restricted to one hundred words a piece there is not a single dud. Keep an eye out (ouch!) for the amusing adverts for horrific products I hope are strictly fictional.

Poisoned Candy
By Pippa Bailey and Myk Pilgrim

I never thought I could enjoy drabbles as much as I have until being introduced to the twisted and raucous minds of Pippa Bailey and Myk Pilgrim. These bite-sized horror books go so fast because of the multiple shorts. These two authors hold nothing back in vulgarity and always get their devious points across in 100 words or less.

I read this in its entirety while sitting at a doctor’s office waiting to be seen. It really reads that fast and keeps you

Myk Pilgrim is a horror writer, or at least that's what he likes to tell people.

He lives in a town just north of the wall, where he spends his time sharing cappuccinos with his inner demons, binge-watching horror movies with equally demented writing partner and significant other Pippa Bailey, shaving his head, annoying the locals, and generally just counting down the days until Halloween.
