Nine Frights : Stories of Terror and The Supernatural by Jeffrey J. Mariotte

Nine Frights

Janey in Amber: A woman visiting her mother’s house encounters some uncomfortable realities about her own life.

Santos del Infierno: In a tale set in the world of Clive Barker’s “Hellbound Hearts” (Hellraiser), a man loses his family and gains a new friend—one with a dark agenda.

The Strip: At the edge of a city plagued by zombies, a small community gathers to try to watch out for one another’s humanity. But when it goes, it’s gone...

Nine short works of terror by award-winning novelist and comic book writer Jeffrey J. Mariotte (The Slab, The Devil’s Bait, the Dark Vengeance Quartet, Missing White Girl, River Runs Red, Cold Black Hearts, four 30 Days of Night novels, and more). Some of these stories have appeared in Hellbound Hearts, The Stories in Between, and Zombie Cop, while others are published here for the first time. 

My thoughts:
I really liked the format of this book. You were introduced to 3 short stories that were intermittently weaved throughout 9 sections of the book. My favorite short story was Santos del Infierno, although Janey in Amber reminded me of a few people I know... Overall this was a great book. It was an easy shorter read, but definitely kept you on your toes. I recommend this to all who like a good horror read every now and again :)
