Dead Ends: Stories from the Gothic South - J.T. Ellison

three stories left.


the two I just read - ‘In Home Visit’, and ‘The Perfect House’ - were strong Horror entries; the book has decided to be a Horror parade towards the end, but I am hoping for one more Crime & Mystery tale that rocks. we’ll see. this book is running about a 3.5 rating with me, overall...which is up from the 3 stars I was planning to award based on earlier reactions. the collection has been more fun - scary fun - lately, even if it has never been brilliant (so far).
