Quick and Entertaining...

Cover: Very Professional and fits the overall feel and temperament of the stories.

The Little Book of Horrors is just that, a collection of shorts that fit the true definition of a horror story. If you are looking for a quick read that will give you that intense feeling of fear, shock or disgust, this is definitely the book for you. The problem with most short stories is that they are...short. Just as the reader becomes engrossed in the story-line, the tale ends. Not true with Lane’s Little Book of Horrors. The author does an amazing job with character development and plot delivery. To expand on the story would have lessened the experience.

This book contains three distinctly different fables. Karma’s Psychopath fits the title. The hero of the story (and I use that term lightly) meets his demise when his path collides with Karma (literally and figuratively) in a very ‘Misery’ sort of way. Bloodlust is a fun story about pole dancing vampires. Like any good vampire tale, it has blood, lust and deceit. The Monster Within was the perfect conclusion to this delightfully horrific collection. After all, it’s hard to find sympathy for a heroine that is plotting murder. This book does contain adult content; sex, violence and language but that’s normally true in any horror story. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quick, unsettling escape into the world of terrifying entertainment.
