4.0 out of 5 stars Connolly not frightned to take chances, 19 May 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nocturnes (Paperback)
This gathering of short stories by Connolly is exceptional. It is well worth the read, its darkly humorous at times and stomach turning at another! The short stories are all real page turners, from "Mrs Froom the Vampire" to "The Cancer Cowboy Rides." The best one by a long shot, has to be "The Inkpot Monkey". Connolly even manages to bring Charlie Parker back to print with a short story named "The Reflecting Eye".

Its a collection of, as you would call it, tales from the dark side, or on the far side of safe! Any one liking horror stories with a nice twist, take the plunge and enjoy!

Writing short stories can be a chancy business, but connolly romps home with this book!

One thing this book taught me, look under the bed, lock the windows down tight, dont play near pools, and never ever go to a school where the mascot is made up of bones.........
