5.0 out of 5 stars "Liches Be Crazy" 12 Jun 2014
By Zach @ The Mouths Of Madness Podcast - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Where were you on the night you were at home, cutting that head out of your toilet with the shards of mirror?"

"Robbed of Sleep" is eighteen doses of caffeine and narcotics. A miscellany of kaleidoscope dreamscapes, vivid theta waves set to print leaving you, the reader, with an enjoyable collection of lingering nightmares, whimsical fancies, future premonitions, and mind!#@% acid trips (or at least it's how I would imagine acid trips playing out). Pound for pound, a fantastic anthology of "Stories to Stay Up For"

I was familiar with a few of the authors represented here, who have continued to not disappoint, but I was also introduced to a few more authors that I am eager to read more from.

The tales I stayed awake thinking about are:

"The Otherland Express" by Todd Keisling

"Zonkey" & "Christmas With the In-Laws" by Tom Bordonaro

"Rot With Me" by Anthony Rapino

"Death of a Phobia..." By David Eccles

"The Overly-Attached Succubus" by M.C. O'Neil

& "Mr. Snake Eyes" by Troy Blackford.

"They were all bedecked in the finest of leathers and straps"

5.0 out of 5 stars Insomnia will take its toll 20 Jun 2014
By Mias Beck - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Nine chefs(*) invite you to an 18-course meal of the special kind.

On the menu card are (among other things): rotted head of cabbage and addled meat of the heart, Birdshirt, Zonkey, Succubus and Dryad, lemon cake surprise and snake eyes as dessert.

A delicacy for gourmets and lovers of fine literary haute-fiction you don't want to miss. Those guys surely know how to carve and cook their pufferfish.

The party will be come as you are and bring an appetite for the strange and dark, twisted and stark.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well Written But Falls Short 25 Aug 2014
By Missy Richmond - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really wish I could give this collection more stars, but I feel 3 is pretty generous. Some of the stories really were scary. A few swept me up in the story. All were well written. However, many just frankly fell short. It was rather disappointing.
