I would be at a loss if I had to pick a favorite story from this collection. Each one is a great read in its own right. Anyone interested in the macabre should certainly seek out this amazing story teller!

from LyndaYourBiggestFan:

These tales are the very best in horror!
I follow this author in the hopes of finding her latest works. When Louise Ann Barton's name is on a book, it's always a good read!

Tiny Tales of Terror is a collection of very different, very scary, flash fiction stories. Each is only about 1,000 words and all are rich in detail. Each takes place in a different time, in a different part of the world.

Where is Rod Serling when you need him? For those of you of a certain age you probably know that Serling was the creative force behind the hit TV show, The Twilight Zone.

Debuting in 1959, the iconic program was a hit because of it’s weird, off-kilter stories with surprise ending that many times left viewers saying, “Wow, I didn’t see that coming!”

Louise Ann Barton has taken her cue from Serling’s approach to story telling and has written Tiny Tales of Terror, a collection of eerie yarns embodying macabre twists complete with boo-in-the-dark endings.

With themes as diverse and numerous as there are murky corners of her imagination, Barton pleases sci-fi aficionados with a creepy little story about Lycos, the silvery third moon of the green planet Arcadia, that is populated by werewolves. From the wild west of Wyoming in 1846 comes the cautionary advice, “Don’t go near the caves” because there’s hell to pay for all who ignore the warning. And those of you who don’t think a collection of sinister stories would be complete without a trip back to the less than merry times of Germany in the dark ages, you’ll find discomfort in “WALPURGISNACHT” where devilish beasties are more than a pesky nuisance to the frightened inhabitants of a medieval forest.

Louise Ann Barton’s creative juices flow as freely as the runoff from an abattoir and her penchant for soggy blood-drenched sagas can best be compared to that of a rabid dog turned loose in a meat market; the result isn’t necessarily pretty, but it keeps you on your toes. And by the way, the answer to the question posed at the beginning of this review, “Where is Rod Serling…?” If he were alive today, and had a copy of Tiny Tales of Terror, he’d be under the bed with the covers over his head muttering, “Why did I read that?”
