To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I don’t know how I managed to buy them out of order, but I did - I think I’ve got issue like 13 or 14 waiting to be read. I buy them the INSTANT I see them go on sale (bless the $.99 chance!). This issue had a couple of outstanding (liked all stories, some just shone though) stories. I won’t tell you which one, but there’s one that’s a real winner...find it! ;)

Here is a collection of stories in which the things that go bump into the night swiftly mutate into things that go screaming into the light. Seemingly innocent looking people become things far from innocent. These stories spoke to me as analogies of the monsters that dwell within all of us. Bottom line - I loved them all. There are no slackers here. Scare Street remains as a source of some of the best horror today. This anthology closes as all of them have so far - with Ron Ripley's hauntingly excellent Jimmy Hsu. This time Jimmy meets a beast that by all rights should rip him apart but takes a liking to him. Just one example of the quality writing found here.
From stomach-churning fright to hair-raising terror and the heartwarming delight of Ron Ripley's adorable Series character young Jimmy Hsu, high-functioning autistic with eidectic memory, here are 13 eclectic tales of terror.

I really enjoy Scare Street short horror stories. In this book they are all different some good, some just ok. I did like Beyond The Wall (love Jimmy), Walled In, and Shadows just to name a few. Keep writing.
