AWAKE: Tales of Terror by Lou Rera

Beth's Review...

This collection is a mere 201 pages, but Rera managed to pack 14 stories into this slim volume. The stories have a wide range of topics, but there are some interconnected stories, which is something I really like finding in a collection.

 

I didn’t dislike any of the stories (which is...

Does writing such an emotional story take an emotional toll on you?

Tav's Review of FULL THROTTLE by Joe Hill

 

Full Throttle by Joe Hill

This is a thick collection of thirteen short stories from Joe Hill. A few of the stories are new and just for this collection where he references some of his favorite writers.  My average rating for these stories is 3.3 stars, which is a kind of disappointing considering how much I love Joe Hill.

The collection begins and ends with a story co-authored...
