Abnormal Statistics is a collection of short horror stories written by Max Booth III. Many of the stories are based on things that he experienced in his childhood. The stories involve families placed in awful circumstances – sometimes through their own poor decisions, other times just plain bad luck.
The book opens with a longer story that I would call a novella. It offers a twist that sold me on the writing right away! I knew I was going to enjoy the rest of the book at that point and I wasn’t disappointed. Abnormal Statistics should appeal to anyone with a love for horror. Just be warned – this is horror. You’ll get plenty of gore and depravity between the pages. It’s just so well written. I had to see what happened next.
I give Abnormal Statistics four out of five stars for an excellent collection of short horror. There wasn’t a poorly written story in the bunch! I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
