    This collection of horror short stories was so much fun to listen to! I received the audio book for free from the authors. I wasn't sure quite what to expect...but before I was more than 5 minutes into the first story, I realized this collection was going to be perfect! I listened to all 3 stories while driving to work and home again today. And I enjoyed each story! Sometimes with story collections I like some of the tales, but not all of them.

I wasn't sure quite what to expect...but before I was more than 5 minutes into the first story, I realized this collection was going to be perfect! I listened to all 3 stories while driving to work and home again today. And I enjoyed each story! Sometimes with story collections I like some of the tales, but not all of them. I was pleasantly surprised by all 3 stories in this first volume of Short Horror Stories. The tales are varied, sufficiently long to be interesting but short enough to make this an easy listening length. Just some basics on the stories -- A young girl whose Let's-Play videos online have made her an internet sensation has an unfortunate altercation with a stalker. A priest discovers that not everyone is what they seem. And, a wealthy widow with sticky fingers and little conscience gets what she deserves. My favorite? I can't really choose -- I enjoyed all 3! There are 19 books in the Short Horror Stories (Supernatural Suspense Collction) series. I can't wait to listen to more in this collection! Perfect companion creepy tales for my daily commute! I listened to the audio book version of these tales. Narrated by Thom Bowers, the audio is just over 1.5 hours long. Bowers gives a great performance! Very enjoyable listening experience! And the cover art is just fantastic!! **I received a free copy of this audio book from the authors. This review is voluntary, and the free book had no bearing on my opinion. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.**

    Scary! This is the first book in the series. I have previously reviewed it, but somehow it got lost. The first story is about a young woman who is supposedly someone that does an internet gaming show, or something. I guess she goes on line and interact with people. I’m not sure what she does. This is something that I know nothing about, and I find it confusing. Anyway, she is stalked on-line by this man, she complains about it, then he decides...if he is not going to be allowed to stalk her, then Scary! This is the first book in the series.

The next story is about a priest who discovers an old fashioned camping trailer in his church parking lot. When he checks it out, all he finds inside are two weird, but hungry little children. The final story is about a wealthy widow who confesses to the police that she has become a thief, after she steals something that may be more than what she bargained.

    Short yes, horror no. They had their moments, were well written, but the stories can’t be considered horror. They were entertaining and chilling...that might be a better way to describe them.

    Reading Reindeer 2021 On Proxima Centauri

    A trio of horror shorts to delight the discerning horror aficionado, featuring implacable and inescapable horror in differing, seemingly practical and everyday venues. The first story, my favorite, has some resonances of "Ring" and a "gift" that keeps on giving, but also some poetic justice. In the second, a compassionate Catholic priest unfortunately encounters horror beyond his worldview (no poetic justice here).

    4.8 stars for Vol 1 Short Horror Stories ( definitely worth your time). I enjoyed these quick reads and the thrills that accompanied them. The stories were cleverly told and I would have enjoyed them even more if they were even a little longer. I love scary stories anytime, but especially when Halloween approaches. Thanx for the shivers!

    These are three short stories, and I mean short. They spend time to build it up, but the endings each seemed forced, or rushed I guess. I realize with short stories you don't get the time or space to fill out details in depth. Story one is about a video gamer on a site I think is supposed to be like You-tube (but of course they can't call it that) and a stalker of hers kills himself and she has to deal with the consequences. The second centers around a priest who is visited by a strange antique tr These are three short stories, and I mean short.

The second centers around a priest who is visited by a strange antique trailer bus and learns to regret the choice to help the two he find inside it. The Third is about a slightly older woman talking to a cop about steeling small but valuable antique things and turns it into a story of her dead husband. I can't say much else without giving away surprises.

    This audiobook was a great little time filler as I had just over an hour of driving to get back to base and didn't want to start a long novel just before a long weekend off. Three excellent short stories that are well written and nicely narrated. They kind of remind me of my childhood/early teens 40+ years ago when I'd have a torch under the bedcovers reading each edition of the Pan Book of Horror Stories and similar anthologies while I was supposed to be sleeping.

    This is the stories of Scary Ghosts, Monsters, Demons, and Hauntings. This is the trio of short horror stories. The story of mirrors got me. The stories have well developed storylines with believable and interesting characters that make the stories believable and at times you will be creeped out. I think you will enjoy these quick reads. Enjoy

    Wickedly delightful! The book ended too soon! Each short story had its own wicked twist on horror! I couldn’t put it down and then sadly it was finished! If you want a quick taste of horror at its finest, I recommend this book!

    Short and scary, but well worth it Short stories are fun while you are reading other novels, or just killing time. These three stories are spooky and excellent. Despite being short, there are so many details to imagine as you read! Looking forward to volume 2.

    This is a book of three short stories, all of which are wonderfully frightening. Classic scary images, classic tropes (creepy children, seeing things that may or may not be there, haunted items), and all three are quick, engrossing reads. (spoiler below) The only issue I bad was with the first of the three stories. I appreciated the Gamer Girl thing and it shedding light on issues internet celebs, especially women, face, but the story choice that the bad guy got revenge that be didn’t deserve nev This is a book of three short stories, all of which are wonderfully frightening.

(spoiler below) The only issue I bad was with the first of the three stories. I appreciated the Gamer Girl thing and it shedding light on issues internet celebs, especially women, face, but the story choice that the bad guy got revenge that be didn’t deserve never sits well with me, in any story. In a way, the fact that the Emmie lost sort of....negates all of the positives and “wokeness” of the piece. Not every protagonist has to win in horror. They shouldn’t. But letting the incel stalker creep get a ghost/evil wish to come back and punish a girl for rejecting his advances isn’t horror—it’s pretty real life, in a sense. The real life aspect of it is scary enough; he shouldn’t have gotten another chance to get what he wanted. But that might just be my feminist talking. :)

It helped show how the modern world can still be frightening despite advanced electronics. I didn’t care for the other two stories and I definitely wasn’t frightened. Thanks for this spooky opportunity!

    This is a new series from Scare Street and it is a winner. There are three short stories in the book and it can all be read in an hour or less, so it packs plenty of scares into a small package. Even though it isn't long, it's still up to Scare Street's high standards and therefore is worth the reader's time. The stories here are stand alone and not part of an ongoing series.

    Great short stories. Very well written. Each one of them. If you enjoy reading books that make you glance over your shoulder or cock your head at an unfamiliar sound long after you’ve read the stories then these are for you to enjoy. I can just about guarantee you’ll be leaving some lights on throughout the evening hours.
