Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I love the challenge presented by my readers when they toss me words and phrases that will become a part of the twisted tale of the day. As many suggestions are offered, typically one or two will immediately prompt my imagination until I am unable to do anything else but let the story flow. As the challenge continues, please come back for more. Check out all volumes of The Horror Challenge for a quick chill up your spine.

About the Author

J.H. Glaze has developed the short story series entitled, "The Horror Challenge", whereby he solicits his readers for a word or phrase that he will twist into a theme or prop in one of his engaging short stories, usually in 2,000 words or less. This method of story development invites the reader into the creative process then credits their story suggestion at the time of publishing and has been met with great enthusiasm.

I have a warped sense of humour so alot of these stories made me giggle.
they arent super scary but they do make you think, and hope nothing like that ever happens in reality.

very well written and very good short read.

Review: The Horror Challenge Volume II by JH Glaze
This is a continuation of the collection of flash fiction horror stories created from a suggestion of every day objects by readers and fans of JH Glaze. If you've already read and enjoyed Volume I, then you don't really care what I think anyway so what you waiting for, go get it now. If you haven't read Volume I, don't worry about it you don't need to you can go back and get it after you've enjoyed this collection of short insights into the mind that is JH Glaze. But be careful or you might end up as addicted to this authors writings as I am, I'm just not sure if that says more about his mind or mine. 4 stars on this one.

I love horror stories, and short stories make for a wonderful read. Sadly, I've found a lot of short horror stories to be lacking in creativity and follow-through. Not this time- this series of short stories delivered. Whether it's the creativity in writing a story around dolls or one involving soap, the follow-through was amazing. I am glad I had a chance to read this, and will be looking forward to more in the future.

I bought this for 99 cents based on the 4 and 5 star reviews and am sorry I bought it. If it were free, maybe I would have read a couple stories and tossed it aside. So let me try to help future readers like me. The "Horror Challenge" is that each story is based loosely on one or two words given to the authors. So if they were given the word "Dump", then they write a 'scary story' which somehow incorporates a "Dump" or being "Dumped" or whatever. I don't hate that idea but lets go further.

The word "Horror" does not apply at all. None of the stories will keep you up at night because they are all pretty silly and/or fantastic. They are not even close to "Tales from the Crypt". The content is "horrific" maybe because it involves death and killing and dismembering and the like, but the way it happens is so fantastic that it won't rattle you at all. Some people will like (and have liked - see the other reviews) the silly/amusing concepts but I think it gets old pretty fast. Anyone could write like this. For example, say you give me the word "Train", so I write the story about Bob the commuter who lives in NYC and runs to catch the train but he misses it along with 5 other people. Strangely another train comes along, its named the Shredder and afunny conductor lets them on the train. But everytime someone gets off the train, the doors become like teeth and tear the person apart. Poor commuters. I guess they should have not been late.

I'd love to give this one star but the stories do move along reasonably quickly and some of the ideas are creative although silly. I wont be taking any more horror challenges.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Honestly, I'm not usually much for short stories, though lately I've been finding my face stuffed in a lot of them...and I've come out of them entertained and happy. So maybe I'll need to update my own ideas on short stories.

I got a kick out of this book. The concept, as I understand it, is that the author asked for ideas from readers and he built on those ideas. Cool crafting. Love it. Almost like impromptu comedy, and believe it or not, many of these horror stories had humorous twists. I don't want to give anything away, and it's really easy to do when you're describing short stories. Just...check it out and see for yourself.

I do have a favorite story in the book. It involves kazoos. I can't say which my least favorite was though, they were all entertaining and fun. Even my husband, who doesn't like to read much, will love this book. It's short, the chapters (stories) are quick/action-filled, and you never hit a lull-o-ennui, which can occur in full length books for people like my husband.

Who can I recommend this book to? Hmmmmm...well, people who don't like to read. Seriously, they will like this. It's like watching the Twilight Zone marathon, only in words (it's even in black and white, ha!). I also recommend HC2 to everybody over about the age of ten who does like to read. HEre's an idea - if you're hopping a plane in New York and flying to Los Angeles...take this book along. You'll proably get it read before you pass Denver.

There is a Horror Challenge 1 I haven't read yet. It's going on my list.

This book was given to me by the author for an Honest Review

I enjoyed Volume II just as much as Volume I. I think Volume II had more of the Horror and suspense than Volume I had. This one has lessons to be learned and remembered. Take the first story for example, Always be nice to your neighbors and strangers you never know who they might be. I will forever laugh when I hear some one say "When monkeys Fly out" Well you know. I am completely amazed at the Talent JH Glaze has to create such wonderful stories just starting with ONE single word. He always keeps my attention and I never find myself thinking "Oh how I wish the book would end" I am always left wanting more. I look forward to reading future volumes in this Horror Challenge as well as any and all books of his to come. I am still reeling from these stories. I was even able to read some of them to my younger son.
