Have you ever read your horror genre’s favourite author’s short story with other authors stories too?? Like you picked up the book for his story but ended up liking all the other story except his? Yes, that happened to me. I love Ron Ripley. He is a genius. I read his novel Slater Mill in school.

This book consists of 10 weird and scary stories that are written by different writers and then publisher together. The 10 stories are:

- The Doctor’s Questions.
- Museum Quality.
- Tell Me Your Name.
- His Neighbor’s Garden.

- FREE Bonus Novel!
The stories are small so I can’t provide summaries to you but I can tell you that they are somehow good.
Going for a Walk, Museum Quality, His Neighbour’s garden, The Graveyard Shift are Ron Ripley’s Stories and I liked none of them. I liked all the other stories, that’s why at the start of this post I introduced it like this.
Ok now for the best story here is Kimberly. I liked the concept of that story but yes it wasn’t like all the other great stories I have read. The worst story was The Doctor’s Questions. It was baseless, headless and I couldn’t understand it at all. I don’t even know how it counts for horror.
The rest of the stories were great. If you are a new horror genre reader and are frightened quickly, you can start with these stories. It also provides you with a free novel in the end.
It’s a short read and easy-going book. I liked it because the stories were unique. I liked it. You should try it. Definitely try it.
That’s it for today. The ebook is free so go and take it, read it and tell me how it was.
