4.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of horror stories! April 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Pray You Die Alone is another great collection of short horror stories. Prunty is skilled at creating horror with lots of dread and twisted elements. There's not much bizarro in this one, which is why it reminds me a lot of another of his collections, Sunruined. The seven stories contained in this book are excellent, each in different ways.

The opener, The Summer of Flies is a creepy tale of Marcus, who starts to wonder if he is the last person left in town. When he meets Ellen, she convinces him that she knows where the bodies of everyone else are, and that they should try to find the killer.

In the second story, Death Tripping in New Orleans, it has been two years since Tod survived a terrible car crash. Following a voice to New Orleans Tod finds himself face to face with the truth of his past.

Durning is the story of Christina from Durning, Ohio. When Adam agrees to go back to Christinas home to meet the family he gets a surprise he never dreamed of.

In Air Cathedral we have serial killer Arthur. Desperate to find the Air Cathedral, Arthur has killed countless times, but will this time finally bring him what he wants?

The Nowhere Room is the tale of Anna, who after having mental attacks for years decides it's time to head back home. She needs to go back to the Nowhere Room and face what happened all those years ago.

The story Black Rosita's Man is about a blues guitarist like no other named Alistar Doos. Nathan East goes to hear Alistar play and try to find the answers to a friends disappearance.

Closing out the book is the story Rayles, which may be the most bizarre of the bunch. The town was once a place for dreams, but that was before Rayles got sick. Now the town is more of a prison.

5.0 out of 5 stars ODD HORROR August 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a fan of A.Prunty. His stories often have a very human nature feel to them. Some of these stories i wouldnt really call horror but are good reads. Prunty evokes alot of different emotions in his writing. All are disturbing is some way. I tend to enjoy his short stories more than his novels and would recommend this book. Prunty is a very talented writer of "bizzaro" fiction. This collection is a steal at it's current list price!!

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a collection worth your time April 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great collection that I really enjoyed. Durning and Rayles are among my favorite horror shorts I have read. The imagination behind these is so strong. The Summer of Flies was another that really pulled me in. The author is an all time favorite for good reason. Read his books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing September 29, 2012
By Sydney
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the stories in this collection to be disappointingly repetitive and somewhat cliche. Perhaps it would have been better if I hadn't read the stories back to back because then I may not have noticed the use of the same words and phrases in each story, such as "the sex between his/her legs," "gorge/vomit rising," "styrofoam coffee cups," "crystalline", and an unnerving penchant for sexualizing young teenage girls. There also seemed to be an dearth of unnecessary, meaningless details that added nothing to the story except to confuse the reader as to why it was even mentioned. One example was a description of a mole that the protagonist notices on the young girl's neck that had no bearing on the story at all, but was written in such a way that you would have thought it would be important in some way. Overall I just found the stories to be mostly unoriginal "horror" and poorly written. Luckily, the price ($.99) was right and it helped me waste an afternoon, but I wouldn't recommend it and it didn't make me eager to purchase any of author's other work.
