Text Of Review: It was a dark and stormy night... (You donít get to say that often living here in Los Angeles, but on February 27, 2014 -- it was, indeed, a dark and stormy night. Go ahead, Google it.) And while part of me was thinking ďI hope it rains enough to help us out with this drought,Ē the rest of me was thinking -- what a perfect night to sit down and read Bill of Frights, by The League of Eclectic Authors.

I have to say, I enjoyed the hell out of this book, and the many soon-to-be-going-to/recently-arrived-from Hell denizens in its fantastic, brisk, and creepy stories. When itís at its best, I felt like I was 14 years old again, reading that great Stephen King collection, Night Shift. Especially the stories like The Bunny Man Returns, and Shadows in Georgetown. The Bunny Man is a fun twist on those great old Urban Legends of a serial killer whoís STANDING RIGHT BEHIND YOU. I loved it. I didnít see the end coming, and enjoyed every twist in the road getting there. Very much like a tragic car accident you donít see coming, I suppose. And Shadows in Georgetown -- what a creepy tale, with even more sinister implications. I truly hope Donald Jeffries writes more about those Shadows -- I want to know more. The Last Post is a great ghost story. Like most good ghost stories, I canít really say too much about it without spoiling some surprises, but having grown up in the shadow of a Civil War battlefield, Stones River, this one hit pretty close to home for me. It reminded me a lot of the tales I heard around the fire growing up. The Bargain was a perfect way to start the book off -- it felt like a cool little Twilight Zone -- clever, sexy, and truly horrible. And the Caretaker felt like Iíd taken a little too much acid, gone into a fun-house, and wandered into a room I wasnít supposed to see. And I mean that in a good way (how else could I mean it?).

Bill of Frights is a perfect addition to the creepy section of your short story shelf. And when a good thunderstorm hits, pour yourself a little scotch, turn on the gas fire, and dig in.
