      A bit disappointed in this. The only other thing I had read by Farris was All Heads Turn When the Hunt Goes By, which I recall being truly horrifying. Not so much this one, which I'd call more suspense.The first one, "Odor of Violets" is a fun read but more of a morality tale than anything else (failing author steals dead man's manuscript, gets what he deserves). The third one (won't even attempt to summarize it) was at the same time too long and too short: too long for the minimal amount of stu [...]

      The first short story in this book is called "The Odor of Violets". It is about a struggling author who steals the final manuscript of a best-selling author who has recently died. He publishes the manuscript under his own name, as his 'newest' book and is subsequently haunted by the muse of the author whose work he stole.The second story, "Horrorshow", is about a small southern town which is being terrorized by a psychotic and sadistic murderer. A psychic is wrongly accused of a teenager's murde [...]

      I just started reading John Farris, wanted to try All Heads Turn When the Hunt Goes By first as I have heard wonderful things about it but this fell into my hands first. I enjoyed some of it immensely and other parts to a degree--I enjoy his style quite a bit, very creative and interesting--my biggest complaint is in the short story "We All Scream For Ice Cream" (a wonderful and creepy story later filmed for Masters of Horror tv show) 2 young African American girls (children) speak in such a way [...]

      I'm giving this a three-star for the three middle stories, all of which I enjoyed. But the first, The Odor of Violets (a very short story) and the last one, The Guardians (the last half of the book), did nothing for me.I'm quickly learning that when Farris is on, he's on. But when he's off, man, is he off.An okay collection and, thankfully, much than the last book I read from him, the very awful Shatter.

      Nice collection of three short stories. Hollywood should take a break from remakes and sequels and have a look at the last story in this collection, The Guardians. This would make a good movie I think. The other two stories are good as well, but maybe too short to be movies.
