A little grim, a little gruesome but all good.,

This review is from: The Gate: 13 Dark & Odd Tales (Kindle Edition)This collection of short tales encompasses an eclectic selection from paranoid astronauts on-board a space shuttle to an obsessed music lover who finds himself 'becoming' part of a musical instrument and a kids game of dare in a deep dark cellar where a monster lurks plus more.
I think short story collections are at their best when there is something for every horror lovers taste and you'll almost certainly find something to love in here. There is a little blood and guts, if that's your thing,psychological terror of things that go bump in the dark and even a twisted but darkly hilarious game of eye spy with an alien on which the fate of the Earth may depend. I wouldn't say this is hardcore stuff but it is good stuff, interesting and entertaining.
While I knew of some authors included here, it was nice to read some stuff from authors I hadn't really heard of before and based on those stories I will be checking out some of their other works.
Included is an introduction and also a short explanation of the idea or basis for each story.
This collection is a bargain. It won't take you long to read, with each tale just the right length. It is well edited and also includes some brilliant one page artwork. Overall, quite excellent. Thank you for reading.
