Review: S.A. Hunt’s Short Stories

Posted December 28, 2015 by Emily in Review / 0 Comments

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I like books. The longer the book, the better. I especially like series. I’ve said that time and again. Logically, you would think that short stories are the opposite of what I want to be reading and normally, that’s true. I don’t seek out short stories to read. However, there is one important exception to this rule.

Horror.

I love scary stories. There is something magical about the way that a horror novelist can create chills up and down your spine in just a few sentences. Don’t believe me? Check out these 2 sentence scary stories from Reddit. These are sure to change your mind.

I would also recommend you read any of the following short stories. each and every one will renew your faith in a horror author’s ability to scare the snot out of you in a minimum of pages. I’ve been a huge fan of S.A. Hunt since I read the first book of his Outlaw King series. Each of these stories shows what a twisted imagination lives in his genius brain.

Robotics researcher Karen finds out that keeping a secret from an experimental robot on the cusp of deactivation is a bad idea.

 

This one starts out completely innocently. I loved the way the story built to the end. This is a perfect example of why horror stories can be perfect even if they are short. I definitely felt sorry for the robot, which might not have been the point.

Bullied middle-schooler Kyle discovers a hole in his jeans pocket that might just be a tear in reality itself.

 

This story was all about a pocket sized wormhole or a tear in the fabric of space. What would you do with one? I know that I would definitely start by throwing stuff in!

A collection of mounting evidence for the existence of a worldwide cult of serial killers, led by the enigmatic figure known only as "Butcherface".

 

The Hidden was my favorite of them all. This story is an expertly crafted and absolutely terrifying. Unfortunately, I read it alone in my empty house and I jumped at every single ambient noise while I was reading it. I went to work with a smile on my face and a chill racing down my spine. This story is a must read.
