I dont know that I would call these horror stories though all of them deal with death. Most of the stories are well written and read almost like poetry there are few that left me going "that's it" , but all in all these are very readable stories. Not a bad way to spend an hour or so in the sun.

Mini horror tales twists from work, home and life.
Author Suzanne Tyrpak offers little short story horror snippets. Ghost Plane, of which the book is titled, is the most promising of eleven stories. The description and sequencing Ghost Plane draws the reader in but does not fulfill the reader’s yearning to know the story behind each of the characters. While each vignette promises possibilities of much better full-length stories, the author delivers little satisfaction. Each story is like watching a movie trailer; you see the action without knowing what lead up to it and what happens after, just a teaser for what is to come.

To me, the definition of a good horror movie is not one with a lot of blood and guts, but one that scares you more by the things that are not shown like Paranormal Activity or the Blair Witch Project. I thought that the stories in Ghost Plane... were definitely in that realm. I devoured the collection in about an hour and with each story, the images Ms. Tyrpak caused me to conjure up in my head were scarier then anything she could have expressly written. It's definitely worth the read.

Suzanne Tyrpak shows in these tales that horror can not only aspire to literary value, but also explore emotional and psychological terrain.

This book was definitely a pleasure to read. The blurb is definitely spot-on, no bullshit. Of course, you'll naturally like some stories better than others.
I'll not comment on any story in particular so as to not spoil any story, I'll just refer anyone reading this to the first paragraph of the extended description. Thanks for the read, author.
