Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I'm acquainted with the author as our kids are on a sports team together. However I only found out he had some published writings from seeing a post from another friend on Facebook, and the author probably doesn't even know I've read some of his writing yet.
This collection of stories was a very fun read for a horror fan. I actually finished it some days ago during the Holiday break along with his novel "Soulmates". I noticed a number of my favorite horror influences coming through pretty well - Twilight Zone types of surprises and twists, Cthulhu type sense of the horrific dread, Underworld conflicts, etc.
I can imagine a number of these stories expanded into larger stories or novels, with perhaps some used for a Twilight Zone type of series episode. One in particular and my favorite, Mary Burns, struck me as potential movie material.
It already has an interesting enough back story to flesh out more. It reminded me of reading the original Ender's Game as the short story and thinking I wish there was more of this - then there came the novels series of novels actually and finally the movie.
That's what I was thinking with 'Mary Burns', that I'd like to know even more details behind what happened and its characters. I love this particular type of conflict and I can see a lot of potential for more back and forth, maybe more sides! The Thing in the Tunnels probably illustrates how the author brings particular internal conflicts out best - guilt vs fear, friendship vs self-preservation, etc.
Charlie's Lunch struck me as the story most like a Twilight Zone episode. The characters seem realistic for their context in the stories. The Texan environments and their particular characters ring familiar to me. I'd recommend this for an enjoyable read for horror fans, and I hope Kevin keeps on writing and maybe expanding some of these!

His characters are powerful and well developed, and his stories lead to great heights, and abysses of despair. One of my favorite stories is "Jacob's Voice. Her kin parted for her, a flock withdrawing in reverence to their priestess. If judged solely by her appearance, she might have blended into the crowd of mourners, just another grief-hollowed matriarch. But Andrew saw past the neatly-pressed black dress, past the close-cropped gray hair and deeply-creviced skin.
He saw her eyes.
The seized him, dared him to demand his freedom. All of his stories exhibit this skill. I highly recommend you read them all. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. This was a very enjoyable collection of horror stories. I particularly liked "She's Killing Me" even though it wasn't really horror but it was just a fun story anyway But the author does a good job using the short story format and doesn't rely on cheap effects to get the scare. He builds up the suspense and creates interesting characters.
The only thing that sort of annoyed me was that each story ended with a little author comment that didn't really add to the story at all. Most of them were pretty generic "I wrote this because I guess I would have preferred either not including them or at least making them meaningful.
