4.5/5 - Covers are important, especially for new authors. A handful of my favorite books this year were found this way. Owen Morgan’s debut collection, Mad Hallelujah and Other Oddities caught my eye the moment he started revealing its cover across social media. I didn’t know who he was or what he wrote, but the cover had my attention. And so, I kept my eyes out for it.

When the book released online, I immediately downloaded the Kindle edition (despite my overpowering stack of TBR titles and curr

Mad Hallelujah and other Oddities is a work of literary genius.  Have you ever wished your spouse away with a single word?  How often have you seen a clump of hair stuck in the plug hole and pulled and been surprised by what lays beneath?  Or a beautiful rose bush that signifies something far deeper and darker.  Owen Morgan has delved feet first into topics that lay dormant in the back of our psyche and he has the key to unlock the cage to our darkest fears.  He has made the unthinkable totally ...more

Accomplished prose and some fascinating stories, though I usually struggle with short stories as the hit rates are usually too low and I found that here. That said, I will keep an eye out for future works from this clearly talented author.

This is a fantastically weird little book full of bizarre incidents and characters. I love the explanations of where the ideas came from because I did sit there wondering wtf. I especially love that one of them has possibly the nerdiest background story ever and it involves one of my favourite card characters. Nothing in the book is really what is expected.

I'm astounded by just how much I liked this collection. Short stories and I typically don't get on as a rule: my attention span struggles to remain invested in a book that has no narrative flow to it. This was a welcome break between longer novels and I found myself absolutely LOVING every story except two or three. Out of fourteen that's insane!

Mad Hallelujahs has it all: short bite sized poems, tongue in cheek humour, the eeriness of abject terror and the spine curdling grisle of body horror.

If you're an Abominable Book Club Box subscriber then you may already know that Mad Hallelujah is by Abominable's very own Owen Morgan. I was really looking forward to reading this, I love the tiny tales on the spookmarks so getting to read some more detailed stories was very exciting. It's also quite rare that I read anthologies so I'm always down for digging into some short stories when the opportunity arises.

Some of the stand out stories for me were The Great Travelling Graveyard, Curse Word
