I enjoyed this collection of horror stories. Some of the stories verged more into the territory of "torture porn" than classic horror, but were enjoyable nonetheless. The Santa Claus story was incredibly clever and definitely worth a read. It does appear, however, that the book was rushed. There's a couple of typos and grammatical errors. At one point, it appears that a note from a reviewer or editor still remains in the story. I think if the copy were cleaned up a bit, I'd give the book another half a star.

If you've enjoyed other Kilborn/Konrath stories (many of which I read from the author's website some time ago) and have a stomach for gore, torture and squirmy situations, you'll enjoy these stories.

Jack Kilborn / JA Konrath is one of my favorite horror authors, and I've found that pretty much all of his books are worth reading. In the past couple of years he has released a TON of content that can be purchased for your Kindle (with no physical edition), and Horror Stories is one of these products. Basically it's a collection of horror stories that range from creepy to gross, from boilerplate to fresh, from scary to funny. The stories are mostly good, with a few misses - I'll run down some of my favorites here:

Dear Diary - Teenage drama in diary-form, written by a sweet little girl with a really dark secret.

Trailer Sucks - What would happen if a bunch of trailer park rednecks managed to capture a hot female vampire?

The Screaming - A cool old-school Van Helsing vampire story that takes place in 1960s England.

First Time - Coming of age story about a growing boy/man's "first time". I saw the ending coming, but it was still well done.

Finicky Eater - People stuck in a bomb shelter after nuclear war, trying to figure out what to do about food. Reads like a really gross Twilight Zone episode.

This collection is a fantastic value at around 25 stories for just $2.99. If you're not squeamish and can appreciate a good scare, then I'm sure you'll find a bunch of stories in here that you'll enjoy. My only real criticism is that this collection doesn't quite seem as tight as you would expect a finished product to feel. It's hard to put my finger exactly on it, but some of the stories seem kind of like filler to me, but maybe they just weren't my style. Regardless of this, there's so much great content in here that every type of horror fan should love it.

I'd buy Horror Stories II for sure - get on that one Mr. Konrath/Kilborn!

As far as short stories go, these were decent. They just seemed too short to actually be horror. There wasn't enough time to build up enough suspense & horror. These stories don't grip you but they are entertaining. Read them after "Afraid" & "Trapped" and you will probably come away feeling unsatisfied & irritated. But, sometimes that is the nature of a short story, it deosn't have the time to "wow" you like a normal novel. Jack Kilborn's flair for visual writing and knack for building intense feelings of suspense & attachment to his charaters is totally wasted in short story form. It takes time to build just the right dramatic affect, and he does it so perfectly, just not in this collection.

Great stories from a very decent horror author. Some were bloody and violent while others were slightly silly. My favorites were "The Punishment" and "The Scream" both were enough to satisfy my weird horror tastes alone. "SA" was a little rediculous but otherwise an enjoyable story. I have read pretty much all the horror that Konrath has put to paper and I have to say his books are very enjoyable and fun to read. I havent read but desperatley wish that he would release the kindle storys that him and Blake Crouch wrote on paper because I do not have a kindle and really dont have the money to buy one. We can only dream...hint hint (I know you read these, Konrath).

If you're looking for quick, gruesome, gory, descript horror stories, this is the book for you. I didn't count them but there's alot of very short stories that work great for reading on quick work breaks. I'm gonna drag this puppy back out near Halloween.

This was a great collection of short stories - some only 2-3 pages long, while others averaged around 20 pages; some of them more humorous than scary, and others were downright gross and freaky; but one thing is for sure, every last one was worth reading! There's everything from a desperate family in a fallout shelter after WWIII, to a man stranded on an alien landscape doing what it takes to survive as he slowly goes mad, and a little of everything in between.

The best part of this read was the fact that no matter if you have 5 minutes to kill or a couple of hours there is a story the perfect length for any situation. If you enjoy the horror genre then you should love this collection of horror stories, but I should warn you that there are a few that are certainly not for the squeamish.

I cannot wait to read other titles by this particular author (or is it authors?). Luckily, he has plenty more out there! Now I just have to decide which great title or collection will be next.
