Stormi's Review: 13 Dark Tales: Collection Two by Michael R. Martin
APC PUBLISHER: Michael R Martin RELEASED: June 13, 2019 GENRE: HORROR, SHORT STORIES LENGTH: 270 pages FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
A headless corpse dumped in a field leads to a terrifying insight into the future, a UFO investigator gets more than he bargained for when he tracks down an eyewitness, and bank robbers find something in a safe-deposit box they wish they hadn’t.
Just three of the 13 Dark Tales, many inspired by macabre urban myths and sinister folklore, in this second collection by Michael R Martin.
Read them in the dark hours when they might call to mind a disturbing story you can’t quite place or a strange shape glimpsed from the corner of your eye; things you dismissed as too fantastic to take seriously but left nagging doubts, nonetheless. Some of them may be true. FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
I always find that giving a review on short story collections can be difficult. I always give it my best shot, though. I found this collection of stories an easy read. I picked it up, and it kept my attention. Each story is uniquely written. Each tale is written well and makes you think. I liked each one. I only wish these were a bit scarier. They all have a creepy vibe, some more than others, but none were just scary to me. My favorite was Thin Ice. It gave me the chills. I usually do not pick a favorite, but I had to this time. Thin Ice was an excellent little story. Overall, this was a good collection of stories. I will be spreading the word about these creepy tales.
