  • The Dead Don't Speak on March 18, 2011

    Well paced, wonderfully written with vivid imagery and stark horror. Reminds us that true horror isn't always in non-huma monsters, but humans who are monsters
  • The Dead Don't Scream on March 18, 2011

    I like what the author has done with these tales. Even though they're short, they manage to capture the horror, fear, and repulsiveness that comes when a vicious killer comes to call. Will be reading the rest and leaving a final review then. Great work, Bridget
