From cultish rituals to cosmic horror, Michael Jess Alexander’s collection of horror fiction will leave you disquieted and unsettled.

In “Chatterbox,” a college professor is haunted by the spirit of a former student.

“A Profound Impact” tells the story of a lost group of people who finally find a place they belong.

In “Space For Amateurs,” a science experiment goes horribly awry.

These tales and six others await you in this haunting volume of horror fiction.

Review 2020 red

This collection of short stories was short and sweet. Nine stories along a horror/supernatural theme that cover a range of different tropes.

My favourite story in the collection was Werewolf Cemetery, which, funnily enough, involved werewolves and a cemetery. The author has you seeing the characters from one angle right up until the end where it’s flipped on its head, with a classic twist.

All of the stories feature a similar twist at the end, so part of the fun of reading these stories is to guess exactly what’s going to happen.

I think that these stories could benefit from being a bit longer, they’re very character driven in nature yet not quite long enough to get a true sense of the characters before they’re over.

If you’re looking for something short and sinister, this collection will hit the spot.
