Hey I’m back with another great read! To shake things up I decided to check out short stories for some quick entertainment. I chose Blood Drops by WB Welch because I had heard good things about it and decided to buy it. I was not disappointed. There are several short stories to awaken your imagination and send it into overdrive. As I mentioned on the show, it’s like all the weird little thoughts that get caught in the drain of your subconscious get scooped up and re-purposed into a brief delicious bite of bloody fear. I love a good horror story that will let my mind wonder on all of the possibilities. These short stories are just enough to get that jump start, and in some of them, leaves you to come to your own conclusions. While I liked them all, I especially liked one about a serial killer who learned how to kill and dismember from none other than Jeffrey Dahmer. It describes how Dahmer had attempted to kill him and the narrator admitted he had wanted to kill him as well. They started living together while Dahmer taught him his art of killing and disposing of the bodies. The main character continued his killing spree after narrowly avoiding arrest with Dahmer only to be caught later by an undercover police sting. The second story I enjoyed was about a woman on house arrest that goes out to check her mail and steps into the grass, only to have chunks taken from her flesh. She tries to figure out what is in the grass that is snacking on her, only to fall and have numerous bite marks covering her legs. She gets back inside and then decides to head to her neighbor’s house to see if they know what is going on. She is knocking on the door and is blindsided by a tree branch, grabbed and devoured by the nearby tree. I enjoyed the short stories and letting my imagination off of its leash for a little while. I hope you decide to give this book a try, and let me know what you think!!
