    " holy mother of evil, this book was great. right from the very 1st short story u get an idea of what this author's writing is like; its bloody, its gory, its weird, scary, etc etc. not all the stories were top notch but there are some definate gems in the bunch. much more than not. probably my fave collection of short stories ever. "

    " This is a great collection of horror short stories. A few of them, as others have mentioned, really push the envelope. I've read a lot of books in the horror genre, and this one contains a few really gruesome/evil stories that are not for the faint of heart! Other stories, like The Washingtonians, are deeply creepy and memorable without being gruesome. Bentley Little is one of my favorite authors in this genre. "

    " One of the best collections of horror stories on the market. Definitely give it a read. You will be appalled. "

    " the collection of a writers stories i have ever read .. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Schiele | 2/1/2014

    " Bentley Little is gruesome, gory and quite out-there but most of his books are great, and this short story book was no exception. My favorites were Estoppel, The Washingtonians, Life With Father, Roommates, Maya's Mother, and Colony. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 1/30/2014

    " some really f'd up stuff in here... i found myself cracking up out loud though at some of this dark twisted morbidity... definitely worth the read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim Dunn | 1/26/2014

    " I like short story compilations, and Little's were pretty good. Better than the recent short story outputs from Stephen King. Worth a read if you're a horror fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/19/2014

    " This is one of those novels that make me wish we had a half star system because really it's a 3 and 3/4 stars novel. Some of the stories are disturbing enough to stick with you for days, like The Sanctuary and Llama but others fall flat. From the sexually perverse to just downright creepy, Bentley Little touches on a little of everything (no pun intended lol) in the genre of horror. This is probably not the book for die-hard horror fans but for those who like a good scare once in a while it may hit the spot. "

    " I don't know why but "The Phonebook Man" creeped me out.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 12/19/2013

    " This collection of short stories is definitely worth a read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 12/6/2013

    " This is a great book of short stories. The one that I had to read again and again is: The Llama. It was the best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronald | 12/3/2013

    " This is one of the overall best collection of short stories I have read. Most of them were highly entertaining. The Washingtonians would make an excellent series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 10/13/2013

    " I so much prefer Little's short stories to his novels. This was a super collection of stories, entertaining, eerie and frightening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katy Budget Books | 10/4/2013

    " Jessie says: I'd say that Bentley Little is on par with Chuck Palahniuk as far as shock factor is concerned. My jaw was on the floor for most of this book, and the horrors just kept on coming. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sawaj75 | 9/17/2013

    " This man is sick, twisted and seriously fucked up. However..heh AWSOME (albeit weird) stories. Some of them just leave with you with a "wtf??" others make you realllly wonder where he gets his ideas. good horror writer though. Very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arthur Graham | 8/22/2013

    " Damn fine horror. As I read this, it occurred to me that many readers might be more horrified by Little's unbridled imagination than anything else. Very weird, very good. Dig it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rene Kaiel | 7/4/2013

    " SO good!! Bentley Little has the most vivid imagination. I love all of his books but they do get very weird/disturbing with lots of "WTF" moments, so definitly not for everyone!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 C.S. | 4/17/2013

    " A fairly good collection of short stories. My main problem was that the book was wildly uneven. Some stories were great and some stories were really poor. You will find yourself picking and choosing the stories you want to finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda Casto | 2/15/2013

    " A great little book of weird horror stories. I think he should be called Bentley Alot, because some of these short stories are really out there,I always look forward to reading his stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 12/22/2012

    " This is AWESOME - great for a good scare. I would recommend this to anyone who like a shiver. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 6/28/2012

    " Loved it. "the sanctuary" was a fantastic start off. I also liked "Life With Father", "The Man in the Passenger Seat", "Llama", "Full moon on Death Row", "The Show", and "Blood". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erik | 2/10/2012

    " There were some really great short stories here, but unfortunately there were also a number of stories that felt like filler. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martin Mcgoey | 2/17/2011

    " Some short pieces here. I liked almost all of them. This book is like a bag of Horror Doritos; pick it up if you're looking for a quick snack. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ronni | 1/24/2010

    " One of the most bizarre, entertaining book of short stories I have read. If you are not a horror fan, or are easily offended....not for you. "
