    3.75 I picked this book up for $2 at a dollar store. It looks like a trashy pulp horror/erotica novel (and it is, sort of) but I found it surprisingly enjoyable. There are 14 stories in this book. The notable ones: Mr. Torso: The saga of a serial killer who cuts off the li...

    This was a better anthology than I actually thought it was going to be. I have read many and the fact that there was only one story in this that I skipped over part way through (I won't say which one to avoid swaying anyone who might read this) says a lot. Even more surprising was that...

    I enjoyed some stories more than others, but they were all good reads. I marked my favorites with a purple pen in the contents page. "Mr. Torso" - Edward Lee - a little sick, but a really good horror story, and sadly, just a little believable "A Moment of Ecstasy" - Graham Watkin...

    This is a collection of short stories by the following authors: Lucy Taylor, Edward Lee, Sidney Williams, Graham Watkins, Michael Garrett, Jeff Gelb, Max Allan Collins, A. R. Morlan, Edo von Belkom, Jack Ketchum, Steve Rasnic Tem, Bentley Little, Claudia O'Keefe, and Graham Masterton. ...

    Another eclectic collection of short stories in the Hot Blood series. As in the previous volumes, there is a bit of a "Tales of the Unexpected" feel about many of the stories, which are based on a greater or lesser extent on horror and/or sexual themes. And as is usually the case with ...

    Some of the stories in this book were really well written, while others left a little to be desired. I skipped through two of the stories, as they didn't hold my interest. I am also quickly learning the difference between erotica written for men/boys and erotica written for women. It w...

    Better than average collection of short-stories. I'd give 3.5 stars if I could, but considering the lackluster short-story collections I've read lately, I'll go ahead and make it 4 stars. Sex, violence, horror. If you can enjoy those types of stories, you would probably enjoy this b...

    Bought this at Christmas Tree Shop for $1.29. Don't have much hope for it, but you never know! This book is AWFUL. I have only read 3 of the stories but they have all been terrible. I dread reading the rest of them. UGH! ...

    Collection of short stories where some are fair and some aren't ...

    Guilty pleasure. ...

    3.75 I picked this book up for $2 at a dollar store. It looks like a trashy pulp horror/erotica novel (and it is, sort of) but I found it surprisingly enjoyable. There are 14 stories in this book. The notable ones: Mr. Torso: The saga of a serial killer who cuts off the li...

    This was a better anthology than I actually thought it was going to be. I have read many and the fact that there was only one story in this that I skipped over part way through (I won't say which one to avoid swaying anyone who might read this) says a lot. Even more surprising was that...

    I enjoyed some stories more than others, but they were all good reads. I marked my favorites with a purple pen in the contents page. "Mr. Torso" - Edward Lee - a little sick, but a really good horror story, and sadly, just a little believable "A Moment of Ecstasy" - Graham Watkin...

    This is a collection of short stories by the following authors: Lucy Taylor, Edward Lee, Sidney Williams, Graham Watkins, Michael Garrett, Jeff Gelb, Max Allan Collins, A. R. Morlan, Edo von Belkom, Jack Ketchum, Steve Rasnic Tem, Bentley Little, Claudia O'Keefe, and Graham Masterton. ...

    Another eclectic collection of short stories in the Hot Blood series. As in the previous volumes, there is a bit of a "Tales of the Unexpected" feel about many of the stories, which are based on a greater or lesser extent on horror and/or sexual themes. And as is usually the case with ...

    Some of the stories in this book were really well written, while others left a little to be desired. I skipped through two of the stories, as they didn't hold my interest. I am also quickly learning the difference between erotica written for men/boys and erotica written for women. It w...

    Better than average collection of short-stories. I'd give 3.5 stars if I could, but considering the lackluster short-story collections I've read lately, I'll go ahead and make it 4 stars. Sex, violence, horror. If you can enjoy those types of stories, you would probably enjoy this b...

    3.75 I picked this book up for $2 at a dollar store. It looks like a trashy pulp horror/erotica novel (and it is, sort of) but I found it surprisingly enjoyable. There are 14 stories in this book. The notable ones: Mr. Torso: The saga of a serial killer who cuts off the li...

    This was a better anthology than I actually thought it was going to be. I have read many and the fact that there was only one story in this that I skipped over part way through (I won't say which one to avoid swaying anyone who might read this) says a lot. Even more surprising was that...

    I enjoyed some stories more than others, but they were all good reads. I marked my favorites with a purple pen in the contents page. "Mr. Torso" - Edward Lee - a little sick, but a really good horror story, and sadly, just a little believable "A Moment of Ecstasy" - Graham Watkin...

    This is a collection of short stories by the following authors: Lucy Taylor, Edward Lee, Sidney Williams, Graham Watkins, Michael Garrett, Jeff Gelb, Max Allan Collins, A. R. Morlan, Edo von Belkom, Jack Ketchum, Steve Rasnic Tem, Bentley Little, Claudia O'Keefe, and Graham Masterton. ...

    Another eclectic collection of short stories in the Hot Blood series. As in the previous volumes, there is a bit of a "Tales of the Unexpected" feel about many of the stories, which are based on a greater or lesser extent on horror and/or sexual themes. And as is usually the case with ...

    Some of the stories in this book were really well written, while others left a little to be desired. I skipped through two of the stories, as they didn't hold my interest. I am also quickly learning the difference between erotica written for men/boys and erotica written for women. It w...

    Better than average collection of short-stories. I'd give 3.5 stars if I could, but considering the lackluster short-story collections I've read lately, I'll go ahead and make it 4 stars. Sex, violence, horror. If you can enjoy those types of stories, you would probably enjoy this b...

    Bought this at Christmas Tree Shop for $1.29. Don't have much hope for it, but you never know! This book is AWFUL. I have only read 3 of the stories but they have all been terrible. I dread reading the rest of them. UGH! ...

    Collection of short stories where some are fair and some aren't ...

    Guilty pleasure. ...

    Whoa! This s/s collection includes some seriously dark tales. I liked it, but some of the stories were really out there or over-the-top. And it takes an awful lot to faze me. Wow.... ...
