I usually don't like horror tales books. There are so many and most turn out to be awful. They're full of silly stories that either don't make much sense or try to gross you out and they lose all direction. Happy for me, after reading the first story titled: Car Nex, I found an appreciation for Terry M. West. The story was good and I happily .moved forward in my reading.
The ebook's not very long, less than 200 pages, and full of stories that present to the reader a mental movie similar to Creep Show. Some stories were serious, and others are rather comedic, like the backwood story of Clinton and Bubba when they met a succubus. The read isn't one that will have you bragging to your friends about how great the book was, but it will provide an interesting read.
One in particular that I found rather side-splitting was Held Over. It was about a dying old codger who was looking to make arrangements for his second life after death. Yup, you guessed it! Okay, so there's a facility where you can go, if you haven enough money, where you'll be taken care of during your second life, but you have to sign over all of your fortune-occluding any and all beneficiaries! Something happens because the old man makes a request that turns demand and POW! I loved it and I found an appreciation for sunsets. LOL I kept seeing the old guy in Creepshow yelling, "Where's my cake!"
There are other tales, like The Hairy Ones and Midnight Snack that were pretty good too, but horrific? Nah. They're spooky stories; I haven't read a horror story in quite some time. There are disturbing ones and many that are gross, but it's been years since a book gave me the heebie jeebies or nightmares. I'm still looking, but don't let that discourage you from reading a few short stories, like those of What Price Gory? and other Horror Titles. It's a cool read- especially the snipped of Cecil and Bubba at the end of the book!
On to the next read!📚
