HASH(0x87e44420) out of 5 stars Not actually about forbidden texts... 20 Nov. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The stories are fairly well written but don't actually measure up to the premise. An Uncommon Stew isn't about a book or text of any sort. When Satan Sings The Blues is about a record. Neither of the other two are about any of the "classic" forbidden texts suggested by the description "From H.P. Lovecraft’s Necronomicon to The Voynich Manuscript, from the Rongorongo artifacts to The Georgia Guidestones..." but are about books which are unnamed and largely undescribed. Horror for bibliophiles this isn't.

HASH(0x87e4466c) out of 5 stars A collection well worth reading 19 Aug. 2013
By Horror_Nerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"Forbidden Texts" is a collection of stories from a group of talented authors. Each of the four stories were entertaining on their own, but two grasped a hold and wouldn't let me sleep until I finished. I'll mention those two stories briefly(while avoiding spoilers). Before I go into that I should list the other stories in the collection.

Introduction by David Bain
"Rookwood" by Rick Kennett & Bryce Stevens
"An Uncommon Stew" by Nicholas Knight
"The Love of a Good Book" by Christine Cornell
"When Satan Sings The Blues( 13 Sinful Selections from a Little South o' Heaven)" by James Newman

The first story that I found outstanding was, "The Love of a Good Book". Konrad Walpole is the ultimate 'bookworm' always on a hunt for a good book at a good price. He know that to find the best books you have to look not in bright and booming bookstores; no the best finds came from others who collected books out of love.
On one such trip, the bookish Konrad stumbles upon the book with it's tacky navy blue cover. He had never heard of the author or title, but a quick skim of the pages and Mr. Walpole was sucked into the tale. Konrad and his wife will find the new book to much to pass up.

I loved this story because I could be Konrad. I love looking, buying, and reading books. When I find the perfect book I'm glued to it till I finish it.

Up next is, "An Uncommon Stew". A reporter has the privilege of attending an elite charity dinner soiree held by Grayville's wealthiest resident Randolph Brackenmire. The meal was to die for, but the stew was something else. Guests often taking seconds and thirds followed by sex and bizarre occurrences.

The reporter digs deeper and soon find that the wealthiest man in town is not what he seems and his plans for Grayville and soon the world are even more dire.

This story has a nice blend of action,horror and strangeness that I couldn't help, but fall in love.

Overall "Forbidden Texts" is a great read with creepy fabulous stories.

HASH(0x87e448ac) out of 5 stars Wow... just wow! 11 July 2013
By Linda H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I got this book to read before it came out from David. Let me just say this.. WOW... this book was so good. I couldn't put it down. I finished it in about 2 days (I was currently reading 2 other books as well). I hated having to go to sleep because I knew I wouldn't be reading it while sleeping. If only.. Lol. I love this book. I love the stories. They are all told so well and so detailed. I loved Konrad Walpole's story as well. Sounds alot like me not wanting to put down a good book. I loved how Ang.. even at 3:22 in the morning was still propped up reading her book because it was too good to put down! Lets have some more stories like these! Great job guys. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone!

HASH(0x87e44c0c) out of 5 stars This book is bloody brilliant!!! 5 July 2013

I started reading "Forbidden Texts" not knowing what to expect. I have read a lot of books in my time and none enthralled me like this one! It grabbed my attention and I couldn't put it down! Each story, while written by a different author, wove together as if written by the same author!!! Brilliant and a must-read!!!!

Lots of good stories makes you think about the fact that things we do effect the whole universe in ways we could never imagine.
