“Fright Feast I” by Brian James Lane is an all-new collection of some very juicy horror shorts. The first volume in a series of three “Fright Feast” books is loaded with 13 original tales to make your heart stop and your imagination run wild. Brian is gifted with a mind unlike “normal” humans. Some of the stuff he thinks up should prevent him from ever getting a decent night’s sleep. Frankly, I would NEVER want to go camping with this guy; if he told tales like these around the campfire, I wouldn’t get a decent night’s sleep. Every little sound in the dark, real or imagined, would have my heart pounding loud enough to actually be heard from the next tent over. The tales in this book are some of the best horror shorts I’ve ever read, anywhere, by anybody, of period. Brian is destined to become known as an author who belongs in the same horror circles as King, Koontz, Lovecraft, Hitchcock, Poe, and others of their ilk.

The 13 tales in this book range in focus from a civil war hero’s statue which comes to life seeking vengeance, to a swamp witch who can make people disappear with bogwater, to zombies, an oddly deformed child, a fish story, and a “thing” from time immemorial coming back to life, plus 7 others as varied as these, and just as heart-stopping. Even Brian’s Prologue is frightening; that’s just one more example of how good he is. If you are a fan of horror short stories, and you think you can handle it, you have got to have this collection. You will remember these stories for the rest of your life, even if that may be only a few more moments.
