Seventeen stories of horror to carry with you to the appointments you do not really want to go to. Also for classes that are boring. But not my classes; there will be a quiz.
The Dark Has Teeth by Billy Wells
Obviously, these are horror stories. There is blood, guts, gore, violence, and some weird sex. Once we get to necrophilia, for me, that is weird sex. There were surprise ending for about 70% of the following stories; the other 30% still had good endings, but they could be anticipated. What follows are my quick takeaways or memorable lines from each story.
TIL DEATH DO US PART Opposites attract. Two serial killers getting married is just wrong.
SHIVERS There’s always some parts left over; I didn’t need these anyway.
THE BLIZZARD A story of familial affection.
RATT After this story, you will want to verify what you are drinking at a party.
SOMETHING IN THE DARK Some dreams hang on longer than others.
FIDO Here doggy, nice doggy, big doggy.
FOOTPRINTS IN THE SNOW Revenge served cold; after all, it is winter.
THE CLOWN AT MIDNIGHT It is a live feed.
THE BOOGEYMAN It is important to stick to the schedule.
EYE OF THE BEHOLDER The title is the answer. The question is “Where is Beauty?”
THE ABHORRENT CLUB Be careful of what you wish to see.
THE TROLL When was the last time you looked really closely at your partner?
SOMETHING IN THE SKY The county coroner must concern himself with grave issues.
FALLING Sometimes it’s difficult to get your money’s worth.
