    1. Did you ever buy a CD for that one song you loved even though the rest of the CD pretty much sucked? Maybe you knew that ahead of time, maybe you didn't; I've done it both ways. Of course, you don't have to do it like that at all, anymore, but that's how it used to be back when you couldn't buy any individual song that you wanted to. Back in the day, not every thing got a single.Well, you'll be glad to know that this book isn't like that at all. If you like hmm not exactly horror suspenseful? Th [...]

    2. This is the best horror book I think I've ever read and I like Stephen King, Bentley Little John Laymon. I didn't know they wrote comedy either, but I sure hope they put more horror books out. They are the best. If I could, I would give them ten+ stars.Each story was so different. I've never read anything even remotely like them before. I also noticed all of their stories start out with an opening hook that pulls the reader in right away and keeps them there. The stories are so original and fast [...]

    3. It's been a while since I read a good Stephen King or Dean Koontz horror story, so it was high time to scare the bejeezus out of myself again. Based on the recommendation of a fellow blogger, I gave this collection of creepy short stories a go. The authors of this book prove themselves over and over again on their blog to have a top-notch handle on humor, but I was curious as to how they'd manage horror.As it turns out, they manage it just FINE. Although they never made me shudder, they sure did [...]

    4. The Graveyard ShiftThis was the first book I'd read by these two guys and it will not be the last. I had no idea they normally wrote comedic books until I read about the authors. They are definitly good in the realm of horror. I especially liked Bedridden Honeymoon and was surprised to find it was based on a true story. I also liked the way he broke the first story into two parts and the macabre ending. They are original stories and kept my interest til the end. I recommend this to anyone who li [...]

    5. Fabulously quirky, frequently gritty humor; always chilling and exciting. One of my favorite short story collections. These Authors really know how to craft a thrilling and macabre plot in a variety of settings with believable characters. Turn on the lights, lock up the axe, make only happy memories in your home, never make envious wishes in the mirror . . . .If you like almost-likeable, psychotic villians, hero's with more guts than common sense, and victims that return from beyond for vengence [...]

    6. This effort is a serious change of pace for this comedic duo. I hope they continue to explore the dark side, as they are really quite good at it. I enjoyed the creepy atmosphere of some of the stories, I also was impressed by some to the more twisted elements in others. This book was almost entirely serious in tone. I was beginning to wonder how they managed that, until I ran into a certain Mr. Grimsley. Ha!Anyway, really good work, guys. You keep writing them and I'll keep reading them.

    7. More disturbing than horrifying, this collection of short stories is nonetheless quite enjoyable The stories all seemed to be perfectly paced, and the book-within-a-book idea, although seemingly done to death was well done here.
