Format: Paperback
Demon in the Basement by Laura Eno is a wonderful collection of short stories, ranging from creepy to spooky to downright scary. None of them are especially long, so you can read one when taking a break or while having lunch. All you brave souls could even read them before going to bed.

If you're reading at night, though, you might want to skip Moonrise for the Dead.

I liked every story. Each one either gave me the shivers or make me turn pages quickly so I could see what was going to happen. It's hard to pick a favorite story since each one is unique.

I liked all the stories, but The Sound of Silence stuck with me. It's rather quiet. Soft. With a twisted end.

The final story, and the longest, is called Demon in the Basement. It definitely is a scary end to the book.

Overall, I'm just amazed at Laura Eno's imagination and writing skills. If you like creepy, scary stories, this is the short story anthology for you or for a friend.

I give Demon in the Basement by Laura Eno a rating of Hel-of-an-Imagination.

FTC Disclaimer: Demon in the Basement was given to me by the author. This did not influence my review. I was rather influenced by the cover, though. It's really creepy, you know? That's scary enough. But, of course, it's not enough, not by itself. The 381 pages of creepiness inside the cover -- now that's enough. Read each story without rushing to the next one. I suggest you read with the lights on and not before going to bed. As Laura says on the back cover: "Leave a nightlight on before you go to sleep. Something's coming for you." Makes you wonder what goes on inside Laura Eno's head, doesn't it?

Demon in the Basement by Laura Eno is a collection of the wild, the worrying and the downright scary. The final story, for which the collection is named, demonstrates again Ms. Eno's mastery of weaving backstory, flashback and the present into a rich and satisfying whole.

The collection boasts short, sharp tales, such as "Mirror, Mirror" which has a sci-fi vibe to it - and a fitting end to a rather nasty character. Others, such as "Three Dog Night" set in and around the Aegean Sea run longer - thus allowing the author to more time to ensure you don't go to sleep easily, and you keep an ear cocked for a dog's bark.

All in all, this is a great collection of stories. Some horrific, some poignant, others funny - in a darkly humorous way.
