This is an excellent collection of short horror stories...and I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of this genre..they are all very vividly written and narrated....and warning...if you have a weak stomach you may not want to attempt this book....lol and Definitely do not try to eat while listening to it...I was appalled and grossed out a few times..and I just had to laugh about it because I didn't stop listening...lol There is totally some bad people in these stories and if you are easily offended...just do not listen..But I did enjoy this, and Joe rocked it!!

Slush is fun!

Slush, is a small volume of horror stories. Overall I found ‘Slush’ to be an enjoyable collection of short stories, and i felt like Glenn Rolfe is a name we will hear more from. 3 hrs and 27 mins goes fast away. In those almost 3 and half hours we get twelve stories, so there is no room for rest. Glenn Rolfe shows his versatility as a horror author, and that is one of the reasons i want to hear more from him! These stories made me feel all sorts of things, and not all of them hit me the right way, but still i wanted to hear more!

Joe Hempel is a good narrator! I enjoyed listening to his voice, and it change just the perfect way to the stories! Joe Hempel is just so fun to listen to, and his voice work is exelent, nothing negative about it, and i am a fan of him now. He is my top 10 narrators i have heard here, and that is saying something!

A collection

Any additional comments?

A nice collection of good stories here. Enough to satisfy anyone's taste . Some brought back memories, while others I didn't care about, By the way I'd recommend this collection of stories and this author and the narrator. A very good combo.

A great collection from a future star

Any additional comments?

This is Glenn Rolfe's slush pile, a collection of twelve dark and seductive dances. But don't mistake this for a collection of held over, dismissed, not ready for prime time cast aways. You will be bludgeoned by twelve heavy hitters. Twelve pins jammed into the hide of a voodoo doll.

Loss of youth and erosion of innocence are the common threads being spun throughout the spindle of these tales. With cursed items, cursed people, first loves, dark appetites, revenge, the unknown and the beyond being the blood that flows from the pinprick. Joe Hempel chaperons you through Glen's dark landscapes by candlelight, but tread lightly. The trail isn't always smooth and never is it straight, and Mr. Rolfe isn't guaranteed to match your pace. Just ask Parker Stephens.."

A delightfully scary collection

A delightfully scary collection of short stories that touch on a variety of common nightmares!  How many of you have found a coin and picked it up?  How many have you left lying on the street for some other lucky soul?  Every child, high schooler and college age student has had a favorite coach, teacher, etc.  Just as many have had mean ones; ones that you wish the tables could be turned.  Even love and romance has their dark side filled with lurking and unseen evilness.

Glenn Rolfe captures those insistent moments of fear when one walks through a dark house or down a lonely dark alley knowing that something is lurking nearby.  Several short but poignant tales of fear will bring on a nearly terminal case of goosebumps and whiplash from looking behind you.   Rolfe is a masterful story-teller capturing fears and expounding on them in vivid imagery.

Joe Hemple narrates these short stories in a steady voice; yet shaky when appropriate.   He does not waste time on being scary or distracting with noises; rather he uses his voice and its inflections to demonstrate the right level of fear and strength.

If you enjoy short stories, this is a wonderful collection.  If you’re a young adult, the chances are the fears Rolfe writes and Hemple puts voice to will scare you!  The down side was the collection was not long enough and while I would have loved to have more, Rolfe ended them in a good spot leaving the reader to contemplate.  My only complaint was the audio was not long enough!!!

There were no issues with the production quality of this audiobook.

They will all make you cringe

Some will make you cringe in a good scary or gross way and only a couple in poor taste. The majority were good creepy and scary. A few sexual scenarios make it not ok for the young readers. I look forward to more by this author. This audiobook was provided by the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review

Good, but felt like the stories left me hanging.

Would you try another book from Glenn Rolfe and/or Joe Hempel?

Sure I would.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They were different stories so this question is really hard to answer.

Which scene was your favorite?

Probably the boy that found the coin.

Could you see Slush being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, unfortunately I can't.

Any additional comments?

While the stories themselves were good, I felt as if the endings were lacking something. I guess I was kind of hoping for an ending like "The Twilight Zone" would have had. I believe that even Stephen King would have had a twist at the end of some sort? Regardless, they were still interesting.

Fantastic collection of short stories

Any additional comments?

This collection of short stories was simply fantastic. I love short stories as much as I love novels. This author has definitely captured my attention and I will be looking up more of his work. Also, the narration was perfect.

A Fun Quick Listen

Any additional comments?

A great listen and well written story that kept me hooked. The narrator was excellent and really brought the story to life. I don’t usually listen to books in this category, but will be looking for more from this author in the future.

A Good Collection

What does Joe Hempel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Great Narration although not so sure about the female voices!

Any additional comments?

Firstly, I'm not a huge fan of horror but these short stories sounded too good to pass up.

I wasn't disappointed, this is a great collection of short stories and are somewhat thought provoking.
Feel like some of the stories were a little rushed and could have been developed more.
Some pretty twisted and detailed stories! , Jackie Boy.... xD.
