*This book was provided for an honest review
This anthology was put together to help raise money for a very helpful cause, and it’s something that is close to the hearts of many. It intrigued me to see that 100% of the profits of all sales of this anthology go to help with resources for Autism. Though this book was made with absolutely no profits for the authors themselves in mind, the collection of short stories inside are not compromised (meaning that the authors didn’t gyp anyone on the quality of the stories). The pages are filled with some of the craziest, wildest and most detailed stories that I have read inside of an anthology. Some were funny, some were shocking and some can be scary- depending on the person reading it. Each turn of the page, it felt like my hands were being shocked and the pulse of the lightning strikes were filling my eyes. I commend Cash and Dehaney for bringing a great group of authors together for an awesome cause.
Sparks is compiled of fifteen authors that take you on an epic journey through horror, sci-fi, fantasy and the bizarre. There is a little something for everyone. I did not know what to expect when I first started reading Sparks. An incredible experience that started with death and ended with more, this book features Pippa Bailey (hers was one of my favorite stories), David Court, Mark Cassel, Ash Hartwell and many more; including the editors, Matthew Cash and Em Dehaney. Throughout history, we have thought about electric shock and thought Tesla and Ben Franklin mostly but never a book- until now. Do you dare to open Sparks and be shocked or even taken over by the electricity that flows inside? I implore you please do, as you will feel every pulse of the electric rod go through your body.
Are you ready for the horrific tales that lay inside? Are you ready to cut your phone off after you finish with this collection? Remember to check your attics and basements; be sure to cut off all the lights, go-ahead and turn off all your electrical products while you’re at it. Better yet, just rip the cords out of the wall… you will thank me later. From the start, with a short that is not kind and gets straight to the point, you will welcome all the stories inside that do not shy away from horrific and deathly tales of electricity. Just remember that you have been warned and if you follow my directions, you will be safe. Only read this when you are alone and in the daylight with clear skies around. The risks are greater if you read during a storm when you decide to read this. I extend a round of terrifying applause to Burdizzo Books for giving us one of the best anthologies of the year.

Each and every story is engaging and exciting; gripping you with its electric tendrils, then letting you take a breath before the next story begins.
Would highly recommend for any horror fan AND the proceeds go to a great cause.
That said, there are a few that both disappoint and frustrate, either with brisk endings or loosing tantalizing, creepy plot-threads in lieu of shock-&-gore. A real pity. But, these are very minor gripes. Overall the stories are wonderful, with some of my favourites being:
In for a Shock, Kayla, The Reel Too Real and The Rape of Ivy House; the last reminding me of early episodes of Tales of the Unexpected (In the best possible way).
In summary, a nice group of tales with plenty of re-reading value. A recommended addition your Kindle collection.
A clever and enjoyable mix of fantasy, whimsy and outright horror. Worth a punt, and all the profits go to a very good cause, Resources For Autism.
