I Held My Breath As Long As I Could

I don't usually read horror stories, but this collection was recommended to me and I thought it was terrific. It's not all horror, in fact, some of the stories were touching. The horror stories were powerful and all were well written. I'd recommend this book to anyone who loves reading short stories.

Twisted dark comedy horror collection. An instant buy.

A twisted ride through the mind of a gifted author. The stories in this collection are varied, from demon dogs, to the bitter sudden end to a marriage. Bitter, dark and in many ways comedic, the characters in these stories are so well developed, the reader gets the impression Kelly has lived with them for a very long time. This is a great thing, because the subject matter is heavy and depressing lots of the time, but the characters and language used make it digestible and really keep the reader interested. Kelly is destined to become one of the greatest horror writers of all time. Don't miss this great collection.
