There were a few genuinely interesting stories, such as the first one, but the others relied more upon scares and grossness to be of any value. Beware of copious amounts of harsh language. Actually just skip altogether.

A Lovely Pair of Browns - 2/5
Hair and Skin - 4/5 (absolutely gross)

Mike is an absolutely fantastic author and story teller. I have all his work in podcast form and truthfully can't pick a favourite. His work is very addictive and the way he brings the charactors to life is nothing short of amazing.

Not for the squeamish. For adults only. Hair and Skin is one of the most repulsive stories I have ever read. The podcast is even more grisly. That said, it is great fun and my favorite story in the book. The other two are top notch as well.

Love Mike Bennett's stories. Mike's stories have bizarre twists and dark humor. One of my favorite authors.

A wonderfully grisly romp through the darker side of human existence. Mike Bennett's talent for writing is equalled by his performance in reading these tales.

mike is a great storyteller. but the problem I had with these short stories were the characters. I know they weren't suppose to be likable but wow! they were really awful.

This is not that scary so far, just kind of gross stuff. He writes well, and describes things well. I enjoy more supernatural plots.

Flew through these 3 short stories from Mike Bennett. Hair and Skin I loved when originally podcast - the voices came across in the writing but that might just be my memory of Mike's narration!

One or two of the tales made me laugh. Most of the others were well written. Mike Bennett's definatly got the voice to do horror audio.
