About Craig McGray

I live on the east coast of Florida with my wife and two beautiful daughters.

My stories range from dark horror to paranormal. I'm currently co-authoring a horror novel as well writing another horror novella, more details to come soon.

In addition to spending time with my family, I enjoy triathlon and endurance training. Many of my thoughts and story ideas come to me during those quiet times while running, biking, or swimming.

Eleven pages; a perfect nightmare

A short story that will haunt you for much longer than you’d desire. This is not the genre I read, but when I saw it was only eleven pages, I thought, why not? I wish I had put more thought into that hasty and regrettable decision.

This Little Piggy is a disturbing, disgusting story, to say the least. But as it was my choice to read it, I will review it on its literary merits.

It had a certain middle school age quality to it. With that in mind, it was well written.

The ending was unpredictable, which I always appreciate in any story or book.

This is a popular genre, but I have learned my lesson, eleven pages or not.

I have not read horror since high school when I was required to read Edgar Allan Poe. I read This Little Piggy after becoming acquainted with Craig from his interview site. I admire Craig's ambition and decided to take a look at his writing. I read this story as one might watch a horrific accident. The description of events was wickedly vivid. I could see the blood and smell the stench. I had to read the story a second time, because I could not believe I wanted to recommend it. It is too brutal and beyond edgy. There are elements of style which I found distracting from time to time. Otherwise, I would give it 5 stars. I do give it 4 stars because Craig succeeded wonderfully as an author. He manipulated my sympathies like the smooth operator in a shell game. He could have written GOTCHA! instead of THE END. There is more to this story than the superficial gore. It is horror in the tradition of Edgar Allan Poe. As readers, we must confront our own perceptions of victims and villains.

A fresh and horrifying tale with more than a pinch of Richard Laymon and a touch of Stephen King thrown in for good measure. McGray leads us through the dark back alleys of a disturbed mind. I won't give anything away, but for a first timer I'm very very impressed. I for one can't wait to see what the author comes up with next! Rating: 4.5 stars.
