Format: Paperback
"peel back the sky" is a series of horror short stories written by stephen bacon, from england. mr. bacon writing style is very descriptive and intelligent. his stories do not focus on gore or vulgarity. these stories are a compilation of shorts that have been published in various horror magazines. some stories deal with fear, some with time-slips, others with creepy things in gardens. whatever dark corridor of human nature mr. bacon travels, as a reader, you're pulled in head first. if you're looking for vampires and twilight sagas, this ain't for you. if you want well-written thought provoking stories that creep you out, check out this book. my only complaint is at the end of the book, mr. bacon talks about each story as where it was published before and the origins of it. it would have been nice to have each description either before or after the story itself rather at the end of the book. all in all, i look forward to reading more of mr. bacon's work.
