AC CENT [n. ak-sent] – a mark indicating stress
What would you do if you saw a hitchhiker on the side of the road on a rainy night?
What if you saw headlights coming at you over a hill, but they then disappeared into nowhere?
What if the Grim Reaper showed up at your door while you were sitting down to dinner with your family?
What if you were an out of work actor and the man who stole your job sat down beside you in a diner?
All of these questions will be answered by the characters in Accents of Horror: Four Flavors of Death, by horror writer Chris Snider.
BONUS: also included is a short story by #1 Bestselling Thriller Writer Ellen C. Maze (Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider, The Judging)
The author reached out to me on Goodreads a couple months ago and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing his book and I said yes. So thanks to the author for providing me with an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I normally don’t read short stories because I tend to not enjoy them all that much. To me there’s never enough to be able to draw me into the story completely and sadly that’s the case with this book.
This book consists of 4 short stories my favorite of which is Headlights. I feel like all of the stories were well thought out but they didn’t pack much of a punch for me and I definitely wouldn’t classify this as horror.
I was also able to guess what the “twist” was for each of the stories. Overall I thought it was a quick read that didn’t pack much of a punch for me.
