Demon lights, granted wishes, strange things, and brutal love at the Lucky Lounge Motel. A haunted sister, desperate parents, a little human touch, and the end of the world... These are the stories whispered among dead leaves, the script etched bare for all to see. When the chills sink deep and your heart begins to pound...are you alone? Welcome to Glenn Rolfe's LAND OF BONES 14 tales of the strange and macabre

Apprehension

Land of Bones is a collection of horror stories that stimulate and provoke the imagination to go beyond the scenarios painted. Fourteen short stories combine to create an impressive compendium of treats that are well written and have the ability to capture such moving and scary images as tales of despair and terror unfold. 

You know that when reading a collection of horror stories, bad shit is coming, but what is remarkable about the writing from Glenn Rolfe, is the creativity and excellent delivery of each tale. The horror isn’t just blood and gore, but emotional turmoil, with a wide-ranging mix of stories involving monsters, natural disasters, viruses, animals gone bad, people gone bad and supernatural meddling. All situations have a sense of dread – nothing will ever be the same again, assuming you live.

Some of the stories are very short and there is one relatively long story that consumes over 40% of the book. The dialogue is really absorbing and adds to the rounded and complete telling of each tale and ensures the maximum impact is achieved from each literary mouthful. 

If you enjoy short stories then I would highly recommend this book and I find reading a book like this is a great companion to have when you can only muster shorter reading times during the day. Like, when you should be preparing for a meeting at work. 😉

I would like to thank Glenn Rolfe for providing me with a free copy of his book in return for an honest review.
