HASH(0xa4998e64) out of 5 stars Recipe for a great debut: 16 Mar. 2012
By Franklin E. Wales - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book as an advance review copy from the author: Get yourself a couple pounds of Prime EC Comics (preferably Vault of Horror), season lightly with some HBO's Tales From the Crypt Spice and sprinkle the whole thing with some Twilight Zone Irony. (Do not overcook, this one bleeds when you bite into it.) Present the dish in slices of exactly 666 words. This is the makings for a very fine debut offering from author Michael E. Grant. It's flash fiction so it's a perfect read while you have your morning coffee, wait in line at the post office, or any time you have a few minutes to kill. Grant fires on all cylinders here, and for the most part makes it work. A few tales didn't grab me as much as most of them, but that's the nature of Flash: it's all in the reader's perception. I still give it 5 stars because as a wordsmith, Grant has some serious chops. Every tale is crafted to perfection. With the bonus tale at the end, it seems that Grant is following up his Freshman debut with another collection of short stories. I personally am looking forward to his first full length novel. Bravo Mr. Grant. Very impressive debut. I will be watching you closely.

HASH(0x920605a0) out of 5 stars In EXACTLY 666 Words 3 July 2012
By Tom Phoghat Sobieski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
To start off, I like anthologies. I like longer forms also, but sometimes you only have a short time available to read, and a short story fills the time nicely. You can read something, from start to finish, in the time it takes to wait for a bus or train, or while standing in line at the bank.
This anthology, though a bit slim ( 103 pp. ) fills the bill nicely, as it has quite a few stories, all of only 666 words each. This is what's known as "flash fiction" or very, very, short fiction. The fact that the stories are exactly 666 words, alludes to the horror element contained within. Think back to when you read comic books ( some of us still do ) and reading a complete story took all of 5 minutes or so. That's what flash fiction tries to emulate.
As with most anthologies, "In 666 Words" is a bit uneven. There are hits and there are misses, but the hits outweigh the misses by quite a bit, and besides the book at $1.75 is quite inexpensive, and quite a bit better than some less expensive offerings.

HASH(0x919e6b64) out of 5 stars the Hitchcock zone 24 Nov. 2012
By Ricardo JM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Poring over these tales felt like watching the Twilight Zone. And I can even picture Alfred Hitchcock introducing episodes based on Michael's work. If you like bizarre stories that do not beat about the bush, this book's for you. Each tale is exactly 666 words long (a challenge majestically executed, by the way), nevertheless Michael's scope is wide enough, even within such margin, to give us a fair account of the uncanny events herein related so that the number of words employed in the process becomes a matter of no consequence whatsoever.

Now, as to my favourites, should anyone else wish to discuss them, those are: Sketches, Under the carpet, The copier from hell, The hit, Small step back, Stalled, and Family dinner.

This volume also seems like the prelude to a new anthology stemming from the issues here broached - just my thoughts, mind you. In any case, it won't surprise me when some of Michael's stories are adapted for the big screen.

HASH(0x919e6d44) out of 5 stars A novel format 30 July 2012
By Casey Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
First the positive: "In 666 Words" is a collection of lightening-fast horror stories; each 666 words long. Individual stories can be read in a matter of minutes and are not limited to any specific horror sub-genre. Most of the stories are pretty good (there are a couple of duds).

The Negative: I gave this book four stars for one reason only -- the limitation of the format. I recognize that what the author attempted to do here was difficult. However, I feel that the format was too limiting. The stories weren't that great simply because there was not enough "room" to develop anything. Also, after a while the stories begin to get a little formulaic with a plot twist in every story. There were so many plot twist that they eventually became expected rather than unexpected.

I received this collection of stories for free from Amazon.

HASH(0x91ac70d8) out of 5 stars A Chilling Good Time 29 Feb. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In 666 Words is a fantastic quick read that offers a little something for everyone's tastebuds...including human bbq! The fact that some of the stories tied together made the book even more interesting. At times there was the feeling that a story ended early, and then three stories later you find that it continues and becomes even more horrifying. Along with the gruesome, chilling, and baffling, there is an underlying sense of humor that will tickle your funny bone in the most unexpected places. This book has been a wonderful addition to my collection, and I look forward to reading more from Michael E. Grant. Happy Hauntings
