Horror isn't my usual reading fare, so I can’t say why I chose to read James Hampton's novella "Doll Baby." However, I’m very glad I did. The tale of a lonely male nobody, a man-harvesting monster whose Internet screen name is Doll Baby, and the police officer tracking her is quite entertaining. The finale featuring the three main characters is riveting. Highly recommended.
Thirst: A Collection of Short Fiction

Thirst: A Collection of Short Fiction (2011) by Linda A. Lavid had so much potential. The short book about human desire and a need for connection actually contains several clever selections. However, the formatting, perhaps due to converting a paperback into an ebook, is poorly executed to the point of being distracting. Basic rules of structure, such as starting a new paragraph with a change of speaker, are often not followed. Throw in some pretty horrid phrases (“His eyes ran up the road.” Seriously?) and I can’t recommend this one.
