Scary Shorts: Halloween Flash Fiction by Barbara Venkataraman / #Review @BarbaraVenkat

Halloween Flash Fiction, what could be more fun? Capture a mood, a phobia, a scary experience, using exactly 100 words. Stories like A Drive in the Country, Halloween Stew, Skeleton Crew, Something About Her Shadow, and Candy Corn will give you the creeps, keep you up at night as you stare at the ceiling. Other stories like Careful What You Wish For and Paying the Piper will make you think twice about your bad decisions.




This is my second flash fiction book. I have to admit I did not know what it was before, but I can honestly say that I  like the genre. 

After having read the sweet and cute Valentine stories, it was time get immersed in the Halloween spirit. Not my favorite time of the year, because horror is not my cup of tea, but I do like a good mystery so I was looking forward to it.

I was not disappointed. Some stories were really creepy, others had a great punch line and some even made me smile. 

Got you interested? You know what to do. 🙂

I enjoyed reading it a lot. I hope you will too. 5 stars

Thank you, Barbara Venkataraman
