Mental Shrillness by Todd Russell

This is a series of 6 short stories. Each story focussing on an emotion – love, betrayal etc. There is a certain macabre darkness running through each story. I liked that each story managed to make the hairs on the back of my neck prickle & stand on end. Particularly the last one which is a good deal longer than the others. All the stories put me in mind of some of Stephen King's early short stories.

All in all I think this is a very good collection of chills. I would like to see more from this author as I feel he has more to give.
