Book Review: Bentley Little “The Collection”

Bentley Little
“The Collection”

Bentley Little has built a reputation in the past few yrs. as one of the best of the next generation of horror authors. Stephen King calls him “The Master of the Macabre,” and Little IS all he’s cracked up to be. His book “The Collection” is actually a short story collection to rival one by King himself. From the weird but intriguing first story, through the over the top weird and extremely graphic rest of the book, each story goes places most people wouldn’t think of in a million years – which is what makes his books and short stories so good. This book is most definitely not for the faint of heart or those who want everything to make sense. The stories do not have gore or violence just because, there is a reason for every word. Sometimes the message is about as clear as mud, but it’s never dull. If you’ve never read Little before, this is a perfect place to start.
