I had writer’s block so I have been reading more. I enjoy short scary stories. . . here are a few reviews for three of them with links.
True Ghost Stories: Haunted Buildings, Creepy Forests, Spooky Tales And Eerie True Ghost Stories From The Scariest Places
By Jason Keeler
I give it a 5 out of 5 stars.
I am a huge horror buff and I really enjoy the retelling of many of these non-fiction ghost stories.
I enjoy a few of the stories. Some are the origins of some urban legends I know. Others are stories from around the world that I have not heard of until today.
It written well, and it’s very organized. Buildings, Forests, and accidental tales.
I could not put it down: I read it in one session.
I would suggest it for a good ghost story reference book.
I hope to read more of his work.
There are at least 4 or 5 dozen short stories by Drac Von Stroller (Many of them are currently free or at least they were when I downloaded several for my kindle.) Here are reviews of a few. . . (His amazon link is at the bottom of the reviews)
Book Review: Bloody Mary (Urban Legend) by Drac Von Stroller
4 out of 5 Stars.
I enjoy urban legends. I love reading different version, as I feel each version has a piece of truth. Bloody Mary is one of my many favorites.
This usually happens when teens want to explore.
I just feel it was a bit short; however, I enjoy that Blood Mary actually communicated with the girls.
Just like the end of the story say . . . research the urban legends and the consequences before mocking the spirits.
Book review: The Doll By Drac Von Stroller
3 out 5 Stars
It has good twists and good scare factor. Dolls naturally scared me. I wished there was more of a description of the doll. (I could easily see this doll being with other dolls on Doll Island, but that is another story).
As a reader, I felt like pieces of the story was missing.
I still would like to where the weapon is stored while the horror aspect was not going on.
I know there was magic involved, but I would have liked more back story on how the doll was created.
I felt the warning was also too vague.
I like the motto which be careful what you wish for.
