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 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 of Accents of Horror: Four flavors of death, by horror writer Chris Snider

 
Accents of Horror: Four Flavors of Death by Chris Snider

Accents of Horror: Four flavors of deathWhat goes on in the mind of an author? Can one sentence turn into an entire tale? Chris Snider asks and answers his own questions in his short story collection of horror and darkness, Accents of Horror: Four Flavors of Death sounds like a trip to an ice cream shop, if that shop sold horrific flavors.

A man running from his nightmares picks up a lone hitchhiker on a dark and stormy night…will he learn that no good deed goes unpunished or will he find forgiveness from a stranger?

Do spirits linger in a plane of existence until they take care of earthly business? Do they rely on chosen humans to reveal themselves in hopes of being understood? What if that special person never came along?

When the Grim Reaper shows up at the home of a hard working family and refuses to speak, one frustrated and frightened man invites him to dinner as he waits to see who will be the Reaper’s next victim. Who knew the Grim Reaper even ate? Would this act of desperate kindness save his family?

In the plastic world of acting, fame is fleeting, on top one day and tossed aside for the great thing, one actor is offered a chance to share the limelight with his nemesis. Will he create an action film that puts him back into the limelight?

Four short stories, all revolving around the unusual, the eerie and death, quick chunks of horrific tales that beg to be read, in full daylight. Chris Snider know how to weave a tale that feels like watching the Twilight Zone in well-chosen words! And yes, the book is better!

I received this copy from Chris Snider in exchange for my honest review.

    1. Chris Snider can truly creep you out - not a vampire in sight, though!

    2. True, I'm more of a Ghost and Goblin writer as opposed to ancient creatures. It's a spooky job, but somebody has to do it!
