Pretty good, I'd like to read/listen to more.
Didn't read the print version.
That's hard to say, but his style is not really gory or fantastical. He likes playing around in the mind, showing how people think inside their heads rather than outer experiences. So, I imagine the title describes his style best, he looks at the dark corners of the human mind and the human experience.
I liked all the stories. I was actually impressed with the first story, which in a roundabout way was about zombies. I don't like zombies, I think they are overdone along with vampires, but the story kept me interested even though I knew where it was heading. A few of the stories were fairly predictable, yet Mr. Bray's writing style is strong enough to keep them going on their own merit anyway. Also, I really liked how he ran different stories together, quite interesting and well done. He sometimes leaves something hanging in one story to answer what happened in a later story. Kind of neat and clever.
To me a 3 star book was ok, but I don't know if I'll check out anything by that author again. A 4 star book was pretty darn good, but not the best and I definitely want to get around to checking the author out again. A 5 star book is one that has blown my socks off and I immediately want to start another work by that author. I gave this book/recording 4 stars. I want to read/listen to more of Mr. Bray, the stories were good enough to want more. A few of the stories even get close to 5 star territory for me. I will definitely be making room on my list for more of his works.

what a great find!!
I had never heard of Michael Bray before. This book was a real treasure find. Every story with the exception of one, was very good. The only story that was a little disappointing was The Box, simply because it felt unfinished. But dont let that keep you from purchasing this great book!
