Publisher's Summary

This collection features a menagerie of horror stories. Some are scary. Some are disturbing. Some are funny. Meet werewolves, vampires, zombies, psychopaths, aliens, cannibals, ghosts, and various things that go bump in the night.

Previously published in dozens of anthologies and magazines, some of these tales are mild, but some are extreme. Let the reader beware...

The stories include:

Finicky Eater - It's after a nuclear war, and a mother and her son are in a fallout shelter, the food long long...

The Screaming - Van Helsing and vampires, in 1960s England.

Mr. Pull Ups - A body modification tale taken to the extreme.

The Shed - Two burglars find the door to hell.

Them's Good Eats - Rednecks vs. aliens, on a spaceship ride of horrors.

First Time - A coming of age tale where all may not be what it seems.

Forgiveness - A dying serial killer asks for a priest to hear his last confession.

Redux - Ghost story noir, about a private eye and a deadly haunting.

The Bag - What's in the bag? You really don't want to know...

Careful, He Bites - Lycanthrope flash fiction.

Symbios - A sci-fi novella about man's first encounter with alien life, and how things can quickly turn bad.

A Matter of Taste - Zombie flash fiction.

Embrace - A bit of gothic horror.

Trailer Sucks - Some trailer park jerks kidnap a vampire.

Markey - Flash fiction, from a twisted point of view.

Punishment Room - A horrific suspense tale about a not-so-distant future.

The Confession - Terrible crimes, told entirely in dialog.

Basketcase - Hardboiled noir with a horrific twist.

The Agreement - A gambler pays the ultimate price to get out of a debt.

Well Balanced Meal - The worst restaurant you've ever been in.

S.A. - A werewolf novella about a Shapshifters Anonymous group that must battle Santa Claus.

Dear Diary - A very twisted pom pon girl reveals the secret of her inner strength.

Mr. Spaceman - We've come to mate with earth women.

    "Edgy and entertaining"
    What did you love best about Horror Stories?

    You have to read/listen to Shapeshifters Anonymous. It was campy and silly and marvelous! I laughed out loud and I loved the ending. I'm going to go online and research the long lost 'Book of Bob'.


    Any additional comments?

    Jack Kilborn is to horror what Seth MacFarlane is to comedy. His writing is entertaining and he pushes the boundaries to the point of discomfort. Sometimes he crosses the line of decency. Sometimes I am disturbed by the subject matter. But I can't put it down. I HAVE to know how the story ends. He's just that good.

    Story
    "Hit and Miss"

    This collection is really a hit and miss one. There are 26 stories: some, like symbiose, mr pull ups, and S.A. were amazing. Others, like The Shed, and The Bag were not so great. Those are my opinions, and I'm sure yours will differ in some way or another. The stories really aren't that frightening- many of them are rather humorous- but I did encounter a few genuinely frightening moments. I also encountered some parts that were rather disturbing. This is not a book that will give you nightmares, but it's still very good. As you can see, i gave it a 5 on all counts, largely because of the story symbiose, which amazed me -as I already said.I very much liked the narration- the rednecks were excellently done- as well as the variety of stories the book offered.

    "Scary?"

    Nice collection of dick and fart jokes. Nothing more. The voiceover was okay and managed to at least make it slightly entertaining.

    Any additional comments?

    Best book of short stories by a single author, I've read since Stephen King's , "Night Shift".

    If you can handle some of the sick and twisted themes in this book you'll appreciate the originality, imagination and humor that makes it a fun book to listen to.
