"Macabre Tales" - If you stop to think about everyday things happening in your life, and then turn a speculative, scientific, but definitely weird glare on that activity, you would begin to understand the type of stories written by Tony Thorne MBE.
For instance, his parting tale, WASHOUT, describes how a man finds his wife frozen in place by fright, holding a knife, standing near their washing machine. I loved the ending of this one! I found Tony Thorne more droll than truly gruesome. His concepts are clever, his writing sharp and quickly to the point and he closes with a quiet flourish. He delves into personal areas, our daily lives and asks you to consider the alternatives that are conceivably possible, if only...
Highly recommended for a true exploration of the macabre.
Macabre Tales is a collection of short stories that will amuse and entertain you to no end. These are stories that I would be comfortable sharing with family and friends. Each story is moderately short, so if you don't have a lot of time for reading, this would be a great choice.
I found myself on the edge of my seat during one story, then smiling and chortling during the next. This collection is very imaginative, and original.
If you want a unique entertaining experience, I highly suggest you put this collection of short stories on your list.
