David Jester may very well possess genius. This is no joke. In the world of Kindle novels his works are gems, and it better only be oversight that his work isn't top shelf soon.

"The Polystyrene Man" is a great story about a writer and the end of nothing. "Wipeout" is a terrifying story about neighbors driven to drive each other to hell.

The stories read so intimately, and autobiographically that I'm very happy David Jester lives on a different continent from me. Yet I fear that as good as his writing is, at some point he'll end up in my city of Los Angeles. When he does, I'm nailing shut my windows and hiding under the covers.

David Jester's Little Terrors is a thrilling and fascinating amalgamation of literary genres and intuitive storytelling. The natural flow and provocation of the works within suggest that Jester possesses not only a brilliant imagination, but is a true and talented wordsmith.

While I would not label the collection as existing strictly or explicitly within the horror genre, I would agree that much of the content does appeal to elements and strategies commonly attributed to themes of horror. A few of the works, namely "When the Reaper Smiles," "Wipeout," and "The Sleepover," possess much more of that traditional edge of terror, foreboding, and a sadistic or sinister concluding twist that embodies what so many of us love most about the horror genre, some even showcasing a healthy dose of gore. Other stories in the collection, however, fall much more into the thriller/suspense genre, which is part of what makes this collection so wonderfully entertaining. The author writes just enough to raise the hairs on the neck and arms, before hanging readers on the edge of knowing, begging imaginations everywhere to fill in the blanks of whatever horrors or dread may lie ahead. One included work, "Little Man," accomplishes this effect especially well, being fairly short in length, but long enough to draw readers into what seems to be nothing more than the innocent curiosity of a sweet and endearing child, only to end swiftly on a note that strongly suggests otherwise.

Included works, such as, "Cold" and "Last Words," play more to the psychological elements of more modern horror and suspense, expertly feeding readers the art of morbid mind-play, demented fantasy, and delusional fear.

What a bunch of tasty little gems! I do love a good short story, particularly when it's of the horror/thriller/paranormal variety, and this book is full of them!

I particularly liked "Wipeout," a tale of an ornery old lady who finally gets her comeuppance, and "Cold" (hello? Who doesn't love a creepy morgue tale?), to name a few, but there is really something in this collection for all tastes, from ghostly children, to an E.T.

Little Terrors is full of just that. And that's what makes it so much fun!

A very nice mix of horror stories, some disturbing, some funny, some spooky. I've read some of the author's other works and although I loved those books, I liked this even more.

I liked quite a few of these stories not really terrifying but interesting none the less he shows a great deal of potential and a wickedness I find I want to read more from him. I would recommend this book for a quick read plus it's a steal since it's free.

These stories just sort of suck you in. They might start out innocent, but you'll find yourself turning (or swiping) pages soon enough. The vivid imagery transports you into the story's settings, and you feel like you are the main character. Of course, you aren't so you keep your mouth open to whisper, "Don't do it. Don't go inside. Don't go around the corner. Run!"

I would compare these to the best of Steven King or Clive Barker or even Ray Bradbury, and yet they are written in David Jester's own style. I could see these being grouped together as a great TV series.

I think this would be a great book for a mature teen to an adult who loves horror shorts. I'm looking forward to reading more of David Jester's work.

I love anthologies because I haven't read one I didn't like. When you have so many different stories to choose from it is hard to go wrong. I may love one story and someone else may be the complete opposite and love the story that was my least favorite. Yet somehow we are both satisfied!
Hard to beat.

This book has nine stories. They range from being full of horror and gore to being full of suspense.
Definitely five stars!

This is a great book for people that don't want to read a long novel. There are nine short stories within this one book. They are good spooky thriller stories that remind me of the twilight zone. It is easy to pick this up and read one story and not have to worry about coming back for a couple days and forgetting what happened already. I did find a couple small errors but nothing major and it didn't take away from the stories. I recommend.
