Publisher's Summary

When someone returns from the dead, it's never going to be good - no matter who it is. No one warned Linda that something dreadful was listening, waiting for the chance, feeding off her grief, when she unwittingly wished aloud that her husband Brian was still alive. She never meant that he should escape his grave. Now, to put things right, Linda has to play a frightening game with the mysterious, disturbing undertaker, James Bracken. The rules are impossible, horrifying. It's a good thing Linda didn't throw away Brian's favorite chair. He still likes to sit there, watching the blank television.

    "Some Good Horror Fun"
    Any additional comments?

    If this isn't a cautionary tale for the old adage "be careful what you wish for" then I don't know what is! "Horror Story Volume I: Death Wish" is a different kind of short form horror that left me wanting more. One thing I really appreciated about this story is that once the "horror" part of it was established, I thought I guessed what the twist would be and I so often (disappointingly) guess correctly. I was completely wrong about this one and I'm so glad! It's lovely to be surprised and G.M. Hague does a great job of this. This was a tight, well written, spooky, fun short horror book that I would recommend to any and all horror lovers!

    "Good story!"
    Any additional comments?

    I thought the author (who is also the narrator) did a great job with this story. The ending was less predictable than I thought it might be, and I could easily visualize the events of the story as it unfolded.

    I also thought that the narration was well done and I wasn't distracted at all by the author/narrator using his natural voice for female character dialogue. (If he had attempted a falsetto-ish voice for female characters, as some narrators do, then it might have been irritating or distracting.).

    The only minor quibble I have is that I didn't really understand the continuity of the 'game' before Linda got involved. I don't want to give away plot information, but I'm not sure why other people hadn't been in Linda's situation beforehand. Perhaps this was explained and I missed it; it certainly didn't distract me from enjoying the story.

    I have no regrets about investing time to listen to this audiobook. I would recommend it to others and I wouldn't hesitate to read/listen to other stories from this author in the future.

    I provided an honest review in exchange for a complimentary copy of the audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator.

    "careful what you wish for..."

    This was an original story about what happens when you wish for something just for the sake of wishing. A grieving wife wishes her husband would come back from the dead. Little does she know, that something is listening and grants her wish. She now must learn how to play this game to get her husband to move on to his final resting place. I thoroughly enjoyed this book the concept was new to me and I thought that the writer did an excellent job as did the narrator.

    Story
    "Fantastic Short Story"
    If you could sum up Horror Story, Volume I in three words, what would they be?

    Totally Wanted More. - I know not a summary but that is what you get


    What other book might you compare Horror Story, Volume I to and why?

    Not necessarily a book but this would have made an excellent Tales from the Crypt or Tales from the Dark Side episode. Maybe I say that because this book is a short story but the vibe of the story itself fit that and I thought it was great.


    Have you listened to any of G.M. Hague’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't; but, I do always enjoy when the author narrates their own book. I feel that you get something more from them reading it.


    If you could take any character from Horror Story, Volume I out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The Undertaker. Don't want to spoil anything but really I couldn't find another character that I actually liked enough to spend dinner with, especially since depending on who it was they might try to kill me.

    "Good Short"

    This is an interesting short horror listen. It started off a little slow than got really intense. It is about a wife Linda whose husband Brian who died of cancer and she wished he would come back I cannot give too much as would be a spoiler. This is my first listen by author and hope not my last. Recommend to anyone who enjoys a fast creepy listen. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. THANK YOU!
