Novelist Christine Sneed writes that the stories in Darrin Doyle’s new collection “are full of rich, complicated characters and unique, unusual situations. The dark humor and pathos in these highly imaginative stories reminded me of the brilliant films of David Lynch. If Lynch wrote short fiction, it would doubtless lurk in the same neighborhood as Darrin Doyle’s.” These f ...more

ARC review: **Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

The Big Baby Crime Spree and Other Delusions is a compilation of five short horror stories in relation to family, relationships and what you do when things go awry.

Unfortunately I did not enjoy reading this novel as much as I hope I would. I’m all for reading a suspense and horror story as long as there’s also the good parts of storytelling – character empathy, clear writing

This is a strange (in a good way) short story collection and all of the stories are different. I'd say there's something in here for everyone. I particularly liked the first two stories, The Kaleidoscope and The Baby Doll.

There's an overarching feeling of inevitability and futility with this book that unsettled me (but maybe I'm demented because I really liked it). Worth a read for sure.
So thrilled to be working with Darrin to promote his newest collection! If you're not already familiar with Darrin, this book will make you a fan! Reach out via DM if you're interested in reviewing this collection or interviewing Darrin! ...more
