Perfect for the pool
Normally, I'm not crazy about short story anthologies, especially horror short stories. This one is different. The dark humor actually had me grinning, even laughing out loud and the length of the stories was the perfect amount of time to go between dips in the pool or drinks. They were engaging enough to distract me from screaming children, too! I highly recommend adding it to your summer reading list!
