Unexpectedly good!

To be honest, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I picked up this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. The book is composed of 9 short stories and most of them were really good. The ones that I didn't care for that much were "The Land" and "Americana." Even so, they weren't the worst stories I've read.

The other stories however, sent some chills down my spine. Not necessarily because they were scary, but because the feeling of suspense and thrill is so well done that by the time you finish the story, you're in awe of what you just read. My favorite story of the lot was "Look Alive." A refreshing twist on a zombie tale and one I won't soon forget. Another one of note is "Family First" and it's shocking conclusion.

I wish other writers would take a page out of these creator's notes because the way they craft a story is among the best I have ever read and makes me want to find more from these creators. I definitely recommend giving this book a look if you're looking for a quick read or some good ol' fashioned pulp fiction
