Smashwords book reviews by Allen Taylor

  • Jake's Monthly- Bizarro Anthology on March 16, 2012

    Jake's monthly anthologies are great fun and good reading. His selections in stories are awesome. For a 16-year-old editor, he really knows what he's doing. I'd recommend any of his anthologies and especially the Bizarro anthology.
  • Jake's Monthly- Punk Anthology on March 16, 2012

    Great stories. I tried Jake's Punk Anthology just to see what kind of editor he was so I could determine whether or not to send him stories for another anthology. His story selections are awesome. Because he satisfied me with this anthology, I went ahead and submitted stories to his Bizarro anthology and purchased it as well. I'm on my way now to buy another anthology. Jake's got class.
  • Sexy Briefs: Knickers in a Twist on April 06, 2012

    I really liked this book. I liked it better than the other Sexy Briefs book: Tasty Little Tails. The stories are all vivid and creative. Some of them are a little bizarre, but I like bizarre. If you are more a plain vanilla kind of sexaholic, then these may not be for you (although I'd say you'll likely find at least one story you'll like no matter your tastes). If you like erotica, these stories can't be beat for free.
  • Sexy Briefs: Tasty Little Tails on April 06, 2012

    I almost didn't read Sexy Briefs: Knickers In A Twist because I found Tasty Little Tails to be somewhat mediocre. There are a couple of good stories here, but one or two I found were poorly written. Still, for free, it's a nice read and a good introduction to each of the authors.
