I really enjoyed this collection. It was well written, and I found myself unable to put it down. I admit, I got a hold of it because it was offered free in kindle edition, and I had to know what was beyond that creepy cover art, but it did not disappoint. I was pleasantly surprised. It was scary and fun, not to mention original. Definitely effective; I now have to have his other work.

You have to comb through many a poorly-written free book to find a gem like this. "Anything Can be Dangerous" is a definite positive addition to the horror genre and Matt Hults is a breath of fresh air. I read this in spare moments between writing and editing my own novella and I'm glad I took the time.

The titular story will grab you, but "Feeding Frenzy" will squeeze the air out of you (by far my favorite). If you have to call any one story weak, I'd say it was "Through the Valley of Death" but even that one had a creep factor to it. And "Finger" was as different a horror story as I've ever read.

When I buy my next book, Hults will definitely be on the short list.

Matt Hults' Anything Can Be Dangerous is a nice, neat little introduction to the author. If his short fiction here is any indication, this is an author who is going places...and you probably want to go with him. The title story is one of the coolest, freshest, most original horror stories I've read in a while, and it will definitely make you look at your dry cleaning bag in a whole new way. Hults also has an original novel out, Husks, that I bought and will give a review when I'm finished with it, but I expect good things. Definitely recommended!

I have to admit, this review maybe a little biased. I had the recent pleasure of talking with Matt Hults and not only is he a fantastic writer and wrote one of the best books I read all year ("Husk") but he is a hell of a nice guy too. I was sent this book as a thank you from him and I ate it up as soon as I got. The title story "Anything Can Be Dangerous" was my favorite out of the 4 stories about killer plastic bags. Huh? you may ask, I wont give it away your just gonna have to buy it and read it. "The Finger" was a close second. Hults has a knack to take dead things and bring them to life whether it be a plastic bag or or a bunch of dead animals that come together to form a huge monstrosity.

Either way, Matt Hults is a writer to look out for in the future and as an avid horror fan I would recommend anything he has put out already and I cannot wait for anything he puts out in the future.

a great collection of unique horror short stories with an exceptional ability to push my "freak out" buttons! truly unforgettable tales, matt hults' writing is right up there with the likes of stephen king and poe. as i took inventory of all the plastic bags in my house after reading the title story - i had a sudden bout of housecleaning to do before i could go to sleep for the night! bravo!

I'm speechless. I don't even know where to begin...I did not get past the 1st story..I couldn't even finish the 1st story. It is about killer plastic bags that fly on to peoples faces and sucks the air out of them and then the bags get together and wrap them selves onto the corpses and becomes some kind of zombie bag thing that walk around trying to kill everyone. Need I say more? Unfortunately I am embarrassed to say I wasted 99 cents on this crap.

ANYTHING CAN BE DANGEROUS might very well make some horror novel readers stop reading. Starting this book out with the story that is - well - a little outrageous, was the most dangerous part of this book. If you like your horror raw, real and visceral this probably isn't for you. If you can enjoy horror that is funny, freaky and a little like a B-Movie, grab this book.

For me, I like both kinds and all kinds in between. I like to be scared, shocked, repulsed...or sometimes just made to laugh while all the weirdness happens.

Not that this book is a satirical take on horror. This isn't Scary Movie 5 (or is it 6 now?) This is a horror writer having fun with a strange idea in the first story. I liked it, and I had fun right along with him.

The story about the couple and child abandoning thier car in a snowstorm was tense and really a very good short horror story. The zombie finger...pretty good too. The zombie cafe, a little bit of Twilight Zone mixed with blood and guts.

Overall I'd pick up Hults again. I enjoyed the book, I got what I wanted out of it, and for me that's good enough. It didn't knock me over or make me dry heave...but I don't need that all the time. Sometimes I just want a fun book that has an edge and creeps me out or makes me cringe. This book did that enough for me to say Thanks Matt - mission accomplished, buddy.

This book is good...but not overly great. Hults' style in the novel oftentimes reminded me of some of Stephen King's works. This was mostly because of the endings. I actually prefer a good horror novel to not be all wrapped up in a little bow when all is said and done. I really enjoyed this about the stories. No happy endings...it was left open-ended for the reader to imagine what was next...brilliant.

Now to the not-so-good. The typos. I found some stories to be more littered with typos than others and this wasn't always simply a mistake in one single word, but oftentimes spacing (I recall seeing something like whisp-ered in one of the stories) as well as a mistake when the word Navajo was used (he wrote it as Navaho). The stories were good, but the typos took away from what I was wanting: a good scare.

Speaking of the stories I rate them as followed:

Anything Can Be Dangerous: About a C+. It had elements that reminded me of King's work and was very unique in the choice of antagonist. However, the ending was a little too abrupt for my liking...even if I do like an open-ended ending. Thankfully, the other stories were better.

Feeding Frenzy: About an A. Overall a good story. In my opinion, the best in the book. It was very clever, very vivid in detail, and even humorous at times. This had the best ending I thought.

Through the valley of death: About a B. A good story. Even so, the kicker at the end was the real treasure of the story as it had a little bit of a slow lead up to it. I liked it because it was unexpected what the story was initially going to be about.

The finger. About a B.
