These short stories are so much fun to read! You won't be able to get the eerie characters out of your mind for days.

Like any great horror story, Tales from the Swollen Corpse finds the perfect balance between fright and fun. The characters are great, not too full of themselves, not perfect protagonists, and the stories have plenty of comic relief. What else would you do if you were trapped in a hardware store being attacked by zombies besides load up on hammers, tool belts and painter suits? Really enjoyable!

I've just finished reading the first story in this book and that alone was worth the purchase price. A really fun read great for beach reading especially if you like your beach reading to be spooky and gory. I can't wait to see what Sam comes up with next.

Reading this book reminds me of my mother's embalming stories... Expeditiously disturbing. The reader does not have to plod through page after page of boring writing, these stories hasten the horror. A variety of terrible tales, every story is a surprise. I would recommend this book to my friends, especially if they do not have the time, or patience, to read long stories.
If you love horror and want to read powerful stories, but will be interrupted frequently while you are trying to read, I would suggest this collection. This is perfect reading for someone traveling, reading in between responsibilities at work, or while caring for children.
The stories are well written and I will be keeping this in my collection...

I read "Rotted Soil", "The Vampire Next Door" and "Bad Drugs". Two of the three titles rocked me to my socks! I found it amazing just how much horror and character development occurred in those brief moments and left me hungering for more. I'm not going to tell which of the two were my favs, you're just going to have to read it yourself. You're bound to find some stories that will give you a good scare! I'd give it 4.5 stars rounded up overall.

For more good works with a Halloween theme please see my other reviews including a brief description along with appropriate age group for "Ghosties" by Gerald Hawksley children, "A Ghost Went Trick or Treating" by Gene Wilikers children "Mr. Spider (Spooky Spook)" by Hollyn Overton for children, "Don't Lend A Monster Your Favorite Toy" by Elwyn Tate for children, "My Mommy is a Zombie" by Nicholas Benedict, children "Terra Vonnel and the Skulls of Aries" by D. C. Akers Pirates/Paranormal for Teen/YA, "Wicked Odd" and "Oddest Yet" by Steve Burt, Teen/YA "Zero Hunters #1" by Jay Carvajal Vampire/graphic novel for Teen/YA, "Of Evil and Darkness" by Jay Carvajal Paranormal/graphic novel for Teen/YA, "Dead Stop" by D. Nathan Hilliard Zombie/horror for Adults, "Edgar Allan Poe: Complete Tales + Poems (Illustrated)(Top Five Classics) Adults, "Four Weird Tales" by Algernon Blackwood, Adults"Wild Wolf's Twisted Tails" Thriller/Adults, "Great British Horror Volume 1" Adults,and "13 Drops of Blood" by James Roy Daley, Horror/Adults. Enjoy!

I have to agree with Bryan Verhanovitz (above). I enjoyed most of the stories here. Sadly, most of them fell short with the endings but were still just detailed enough to make me want to read the next story in the book. I did like the Mr. Bags story...I had so many unanswered questions! But that is exactly what makes it give you the shivers!
I was initially going to give this 3 stars but I liked the Mr. Bags story enough to up it to 4.

I really enjoyed this book! It was creepy good, I could not put it down. The imagery was great and the character depths were amazing. This book grabs you from page one and delivered a good scare. A wonderful read!!

This is a collection of shot stories,some are VERY short,but they were, for the most part engaging even if many of the plots were predictable. Many had a new spin on old stories.
I really enjoyed the tale of the girl who gave her boyfriend a very unusual gift of a tiny,perfectly made skeleton in a glass box. It had all the same creepiness as "A Trilogy Of Terror" which started Karen Black in the 70's.
I also liked the story of the turn-of-the-century farm family (ala Little House On The Prairie) and the way the story really spun into a solid dramatic Store. Not a bad way to spend a rainy afternoon.
