5.0 out of 5 starsReally good stories
Reviewed in the United States on July 29, 2020
But hated the last one,just didn't flow. The rest of the stories are really good,and creepy. Grab it,great deal on the price.
Curiosity, it is said, killed the kitty. An old saying perhaps, but in this volume of excellent stories it is the curious who meet their untimely demises in a delicious variety of gruesome ways. True, most of them were up to no good in the first place and had it coming but still.... The writing here is up to the usual Scare Street standards. The characters are well developed and nary a one of them is close to perfect. They all had flaws. They all allowed their lust for what they didn't have lead to their undoing. Even Shane Ryan gets into the act in one of the stories, and he plays his role very well. The last story, "Fatberg," deviates from the norm in that the evil doesn't manifest itself in ghosts but in a massive globule of sewage solids. As a retired wastewater treatment employee, this one struck home to me. I have seen personally several of these "fatbergs" and the resulting mess they make and while none of them were close to the monster in the story in size, trust me when I tell you that they can create a monstrous clean-up project. Perhaps it is good that I am retired. I don't know that I could ever face one of these things again and not think of the beast in this story. Okay, get the book. Don't read it in the dark. Above all, don't let your curiosity get the better of you. You may not live to regret it.
The newest electrifying, hair-raising, spine-chilling, mind-blowing, collection from authors Ron Ripley, David Longhorn, Sara Clancy, and Bronson Carey. Stick your finger in an electric socket while fresh from your shower: you'll get shocks galore, but nowhere like reading these stories, in which the dead are implacable and have a sharp axis to grind.
Recommended for daytime reading on sunny days. Do not read at night alone....unless of course you like sleeping with all the Lights on.
I love these books of short stories, there’s a little something for everyone; ghosts, creatures, superstition, and heck this one even has evil pixies! A great collection by great authors. I would recommend this and the others in the series to anyone who likes a short horror story!
You would think these authors would run out of Ideas but no, they don't. There stories are always fresh and creepy. This batch is well represented of all the batches before. Definitely enjoyable and all the authors do good work!
Scare Street has amazing scary stories for all ages . This one was really good . I'm 39 and I still enjoy reading them ..so many different stories in one book , I love them all "Elder Care" by Ron Ripley was my favorite but I love them all

This is classic Ron Ripley. Each story pulls you in and de!ivers a marvelous scare. I couldn't stop reading even when my eyelids were heavy. David Longhorn proves his scary stories skills in this volume too. Two great authors who ALWAYS deliver great stories. I recommended this book to all of my friends.

This anthology of chilling stories kept me enthralled and hooked from the first story to the last! Very interesting twists and turns. The very last story grossed me out the most just by picturing it in my mind. I very much recommend this collection to fans of Scare Street!
