Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I have been a fan of Kenneth W. Cain’s work for several years now and I have to say this new series does not let me down. Mr. Cain has a flair for taking the reader on an adventure of twists and turns. You never know how the story will end, which is challenging to pull of in today’s literature.
Kenneth W. Cain’s short stories are flashing neon signs that scream, “The author had fun writing these!” But the neon signs disappear once you start reading; there is no pretension here–it’s simply a fine collection of tales with great hooks/opening lines and fun-ride premises. I can almost feel the author pulling images from real-life observations and saying, “What if?” to turn these tales into the entertaining pieces that they are.
Cain displays a remarkable talent for boldly unearthing the most uncomfortable fears and anxieties buried deep within the human psyche. This is an excellent book for all horror fans, and I highly recommend it.
I truly enjoyed this wonderful collection of dark fantasy/horror stories. Each have their own unique storyline and the outcome is always surprising, and some will make you think. I will be on the hunt for more from this author.
Every story might not resonate with every reader, but I guarantee that anyone with darker leanings will find something to enjoy here, if not the majority of these fresh cut tales. I look forward to every short story collection this author releases, but until the next, I’m perfectly happy re-reading his past publications. Another job well done, Mr. Cain!
