Each taking place in a mortuary, these four short stories read like well-written episodes of Tales from the Crypt. When you think you know where it’s going, prepare for a clever twist.In this monster mash-up: a mother struggles to control her very hungry sons; a creature re-purposes an old mortuary to warehouse her stolen goods; a fledgling vampire hunter learns a very hard lesson; and In Never Trust a Zombie, my favorite one, a boy knows better than to believe the un-dead.Each vignette feels complete. The horror is graphic and occasionally gruesome. The atmosphere is ghoulish and the dash of erotica adds just the right amount of depravity to each story. This collection is $1.49. Forgo a cup of coffee and get it.
