Tastes of Horror by Matt Shaw

This is a collection of the author's best selling novellas, plus a bonus new short story called The Ward.

I have read all five of these stories before, and I have reviewed them all individually so there isn't much point in me rehashing them here. I will, instead, concentrate on the short, The Ward. This is a story inspired by Matt's recent spell in hospital. It has a very creepy vibe to it, I certainly wouldn't want to stay in this particular hospital. The story leads you down the path that it is all a morphine addled hallucination, but then asks the question 'Or is it?' I do like the way Matt takes every day experiences and puts his horror twist to them. Long may he continue!
