A truly scary collection

  • Jul 9, 2013
Rating:
+3
By turns gruesome, haunting, scary, disturbing and weird, Robert Freese's 13 Frights is a fine collection of ghost stories for a dark and stormy night, morning, evening or anytime in between. The writing’s smooth with clear characters, pleasingly different voices and points of view, excellent dialog and scares aplenty as the tales travel full circle from one scriptwriter to another, via haunted wells and smoke-filled diners and more. Evocative, full of surprises—mostly dire and gruesome as befits a book of frights—and well-edited with just a very occasional glitch, this is one of the scariest short story collections I’ve read in a while and highly recommended. But don’t try to write, eat, drink, or travel while reading.

Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get an ecopy of this book when it was offered free. Perhaps I should have read it at Halloween… or perhaps not…
