~~My Review~~

This is one of the shortest reviews I’ve written in a while, as Tales of The Mysterious and Macabre is a collection of short stories, it’s a lot harder to discuss the characters and plots without giving too much away. So, without giving anything away it has made my review much shorter.

This is the first of Simon’s work that I’ve read, and I was hooked and captivated throughout every story.

These tales are exactly as the title suggests; mysterious, dark, macabre and downright creepy. Simon clearly has a talent for this type of story, and a collection of 13 stories is the perfect way to showcase that talent.

Each story is unique and individual. What I found with these stories is that they are complete, I’ve read some short stories in the past that have felt that they simply stopped as opposed to ending, this is NOT the case with these 13 stories.

The characters are very realistic and are well developed considering the stories are short. The stories are well developed and planned, the scenes are set and fit each story amazingly well.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Tales of The Mysterious and Macabre, I am also looking forward to seeing what Simon has to offer up next.

Overall this is a great collection of short stories that should give you the creeps and make your spine tingle more than once!
