Slices: Tales of Bizarro and Absurdist Horror

Are you hungry for something different? Something weird? Horrific? Funny? Uncomfortable? Surreal? Try a slice.

These pages are filled with unique and creepy stories. The stories span the horror genre, which makes this collection stand out. Scott Cole's short form is on point. The collection is arranged well. The author grabs you with the first few sentences and from there you are completely sucked into the story. 

What's so bizarre is the fact that I am just now reading Scott Cole. Remember the name. He has arrived. If you don't believe me, then I suggest 666 Baby Jesuses, Give and Take. It's about a guy who is obsessed with collecting action figures. If you want a great body horror story, then Slices of Me is right for you. We Built the Moon is my favorite story out of the collection, though. For the love of horror, can someone please turn this story into a short film? 

Slices: Tales of Bizarro and Absurdist Horror consists of 33 stories. It's an all you can eat buffet of horror! I very rarely revisit books, but I will make an exception for this collection. If you have a weak stomach, then you should probably eat light before diving into this book. 

Support Black T-Shirt Books too!
