I think this book is a great opportunity for all you readers who are curious about a Kevin J. Kennedy book. I know I have reviewed a lot by him and this short story book will give you just the taste.
The writing is impeccable. It's so flowy, easy to read and I just know when I pick up one of his books, that it's without errors.
The book has the lovely horror stories that I'm fond of. You have the gory, the scary, the WTH-stories and all that you just would love to get out of a short story book.

Short story collections were never a huge hit with me. I’ve always picked them up from time to time because I kept hoping I would find just the right collection. However, with most collections, the tales inside were always hit or miss. I’d have a couple of four or five star ratings, but then a majority of one, two, or three star ratings.

Then I got an email from Kevin Kennedy…

After reading a few collections that he put together, my tune changed! I have absolutely loved each collection that I have

Dark thoughts was an entertaining and quick read. Carnivalland, Life on a Double-Decker and Lake Mesquite being my favorites. Each of them hitting a different horror theme. Zombies, a trip through strange land and good old campsite horror hit the spot.

Brutal and uncompromising, sometimes quirky, and even humorous at times – loved it!

Despite being new to this author, I knew I was going to like this collection right from the opening story, 'Life on a Double Decker Bus,' a highly original snapshot take on the Zombie theme, which is no mean task given the current tsunami-like glut of Zombie themed tales.

In many ways, some of the stories read like snapshots of possibly longer stories, especially Carnivalland, and yet they’re still surprisingly sa

I received this book to give an honest review.

I love a good horror book and they are really hard to find. In this collection I wouldn't really call the stories scary but they were a bit creepy. On the first story right out of the box I felt like I had read that one before. Not sure where but I remember reading about a double Decker bus and zombies. Each story was different and unique. I have to say there was two stories that had me shaking my head.

The first one was I'll Give Ye Foie Gras, Ya Cun

Unlike other short story collections where you have a masterpiece next to a less brilliant piece, this book's content is pretty even. It may be because all the stories are by the same author but I liked them all equally. They are more or less gory, but tell a complete story in just a few pages. As an animal lover, I enjoyed "I'll Give You Foie Gras..." a little too much, while "Charlie the Vegetarian Cannibal" surprised me by making a completely out-there character very relatable. "Lake Mesquite ...more

My kind of disturbing

What a time I've had reading this collection of stories. It was truly wonderful visiting the mind of Kevin J Kennedy. Very sick and starving I loved it all. I will definitely be looking for more of his work.

A dark and magnificent look at some well known places. Kevin Kennedy has an imagination that is unequaled in modern day stories. A great look at what could happen if you aren't careful!
