    GIANT GHOST CHICKEN.

    Literally. There is a story in here about a GIANT GHOST CHICKEN that kills a dude's wife. Not a chicken monster or anything, just a giant evil chicken. The author legitimately wrote that story, sat back, looked at it, and patted himself on the back.

    I can't. I just can't.

    Do you like Horror stories?
    Do you like having a southern twist on your horror?
    Do you like cheap books?
    Do you have a short road trip and want to keep your crotch fruit in rapture through out the duration?

    If the answer is yes to any of these than you may want to consider buying this book.

    Story
    "Death and Darkness in the South, lots of fun."

    This compilation of short stories is perfect for the commuting listener who likes to enjoy a few quick stories. A few of the books I've listened to recently have been 30+ hours long and at about 1.5 hours of listening a day it takes me a while to get through them.

    Enter the short story. I've enjoyed all three of the offerings from Mr Kelly so far. He is macabre and twisted and has the ability to give you that little bit of shock and revulsion that comes from the dark and unknown. Fun stuff. Well worth the couple bucks being asked. I think you'll enjoy these short stories, give'm a try!
