Format: Paperback
WHAT TANGLED WEBS is the latest story collection from Dan Dillard, who also gave us the collection DEMONS AND OTHER INCONVENIENCES. There are nine short stories of the macabre and the disturbing, as well as a novella about Satan, and a fun and dark poem to wet the readers' appetite.

The book begins with the poem "Lament of the Devil" about the tasty souls the Devil will partake of, and it finishes with the novella "The Wager" about Jacob Kane, a fisherman who meets and falls in love with Caitlin. Caitlin's father decides that she will marry someone else and Jacob leaves town in anger and despair to get drunk. While at a seedy tavern he meets Old Harry who he makes a wager with--that he will get Caitlin by any means necessary. Old Harry turns out to be Satan. Jacob returns to town weeks later, but he thought he was only gone overnight. Jacob's plans to win Caitlin don't go so well and he has lost his wager. Satan's plans for Jacob have only just begun.

My favorite story is "Rites of Passage" a twisted tale about a group of young children living in an orphanage. Mrs. Spivey runs the home and welcomes the newest child William, a six-year-old boy who doesn't understand how things work just yet. It gives new meaning to being adopted. Another great story is "The `A' Word" about a stalker who has decided that it's time to kill his prey; it also delves into some neighborhood secrets....and this one's a doosey. "Epi3Demic" couldn't have been written at a better time. People around the country begin tearing their friends and loved ones apart--literally--after seeing a 3D movie; and "Deliver Us from Evil" is the story of a woman's revenge against a guy who picked the wrong chick to mess with.

Dan Dillard does it again - he first had me with DEMONS AND OTHER INCONVENIENCES, so I was excited to jump into this book. These stories are longer and more developed and definitely not for the faint of heart! Thoroughly enjoyed and looking forward to the next creation.

With a somewhat skeptical eye, I began Dan Dillard's horror anthology What Tangled Webs." Having just completed Dillard's Demons and Other Inconveniences, I prepared myself for the let-down that often occurs when a reader is first amazed by the writings of an author they'd never read before and then sorely disappointed when anything else read never
lives up to the original--like when, as the reader, you question if perhaps the author had experienced a rare stroke of creative genius during the first read or if they simply got complacent having received such rave reviews for the first novel. With that being said, I prepared myself for said let-down and opened my Kindle. *Insert funky disco tune here!*

Dillard can write a darn good horror story! Several times I put down my Kindle, wishing someone sat next to me who I could elbow and say, "Can you believe this guy?" or "This is craziness. Pure craziness!" I just wanted to share all the feelings I experienced with someone who could understand how psyched one gets by an amazingly-written story. So, I reviewed Dillard's anthology with the following system:

I like to give each story its own rating with a rating of five stars being ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT, 3 stars being MEH, IT WAS OKAY, and 1 star being COULD HAVE WENT WITHOUT READING IT. My rating for the stories included in What Tangled Webs are as follows:'

Lament of the Devil- 5 (Dillard once again opens his collection of scaries with a poem that is both entertaining and thought-provoking)

Deliver Us From Evil- 3 (The story starts interesting enough with a truly despicable character that the reader should have no trouble disliking. My issue is with the execution of the ending. I had some questions as to the "how" that I would have liked answered.
