5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Read After Dark is the Perfect Title
What an amazing set of books, all of them had me grimacing at one point or another and thoroughly enjoying those grimaces. I especially liked the books Fresh Meat and All Hallow's Eve, both unique and intriguing. I couldn't put them down and had to read them from cover to cover in one sitting, separately of course.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much of a muchness
The description implies a collection of stories but in fact it is a continuous theme from the first one. I got bored and gave up about half-way through the second. Too far-fetched to be really interesting/

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Read After Dark is the Perfect Title, 6 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Don't Read After Dark: Keep the lights on while reading these! (A McCray Horror Collection) (Kindle Edition)
What an amazing set of books, all of them had me grimacing at one point or another and thoroughly enjoying those grimaces. I especially liked the books Fresh Meat and All Hallow's Eve, both unique and intriguing. I couldn't put them down and had to read them from cover to cover in one sitting, separately of course. I don't normally read horror stories, am more of a regency novel/romantic novel reader, but these books caught my attention from beginning to end and I really would recommend them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear! Oh dear!, 7 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Don't Read After Dark: Keep the lights on while reading these! (A McCray Horror Collection) (Kindle Edition)
Purchased this purely based on the collection title but am now wondering why l bothered. What a load of tosh. Struggled through the first three just to see if things could get anymore ridiculous and was not disappointed. Started the remaining books but just could not be bothered to complete them. As far as I am concerned these are writers to avoid and keeping the lights on does you no favours - turn them off as you will not miss anything!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Nondescript, 29 Aug. 2014

This review is from: Don't Read After Dark: Keep the lights on while reading these! (A McCray Horror Collection) (Kindle Edition)
A set of four generic and rather bland serial-killer novellas. There is nothing original or remarkable about any of them.
They are 'gory' but then so is the meat counter at Tescos. That doesn't make it scary.

The first of the four is the best, but any one of them could have been written by a year 10 student in English.

Some were very good and some were very average, but for the price they make perfect holiday reading. None of them are going to stretch 'the little grey cells'.

for the price these books are great, there was this one story about a girl being taken at the begining of the story.
its the one that sticks in my mind because it was by far the best of the bunch.

This review is from: Don't Read After Dark: Keep the lights on while reading these! (A McCray Horror Collection) (Kindle Edition)
One of the best set of horrors I've read, and I've been a horror addict for...wow, maybe 30 years?! My favorites were Fresh Meat and All Hallows Eve, both were unique, gory, funny and hey, even had a bit of romance thrown it! Going to search for more by both authors, hope I find some?
