Title: Zombies and Other Unpleasant Things
Author: William Bebb
Publisher: E-Book, 2013
Synopsis: This is a collection of short, and some not so short, stories that involve the undead as well as a wide variety of very unpleasant things.
Some of the unpleasant things include mentally deranged psychotic clowns, someone being pushed from a very tall building, a giant six foot tall fluffy pink talking bunny that a man discovers in his kitchen at 2:47 in the morning, an elderly deranged man who believes he's a ninja, a vacation near Albuquerque that ends very tragically, and many other things.
Review: I picked up this digital book for two reasons: first, it had the story Southwestern Road Trip which is a sequel to Valley of Death, Zombie Trailer Park by this same author (which I read and enjoyed) and second, I do like scary stories.
Unfortunately, this book was not everything I expected. The stories were okay. The sequel kept my interest (mostly). This author has no editing staff and it's obvious when you're reading sentences that make no sense whatsoever.
Still, it was free on Amazon, it was scary (and gross), and the story The Fall of Bayonne was actually quite good although, as the author says, it's more of a novella than a short story. I think, perhaps, this author should stick to longer works. His short stories just aren't really all that good.
