A zombie walks into a bar during the apocalypse
I'm going to say that I listened to this, and then I went to do my review, and I saw a few people complaining about Druin's narration. I'm going to start off by saying I think the man did a fine job, he wasn't slow and never slurred, so I don't know where that came from, but he did have a pace and a cadence that he used to tell his tales. A good narrator has a distinctive voice, and you can pick them out in seconds if they are really good. I personally believe the man to have a solid voice that conveys a heck of a lot, so don't believe what they said. Listen to the sample. The man's got a great accent, and can sell what he says with a verbal wink and nod.
As for the stories, there are six. They each have a quality premise, and end with a slick surprise or twist. That is the kind of fine writing that I can appreciate. Nothing straightforward, nothing you see coming. A quick jab, a flsh of light, and you find yourself sitting on your rear end wondering where that came from. So, yeah, they were enjoyable. For a set of shorts it is a great deal to get for a short car ride or walk. While these didn't scare me, few stories ever have, they were enjoyable and that is all I can ask. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Nice group of short stories
I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
This is a collection of six horror short stories. They are pretty interesting and not very gory, which was a nice change. I don't want to give away too much about each one, so I'll keep this review a bit vague.
Each story is interesting and even though they're mostly short, they kept my interest enough to get through them. There were really fun twists in some of them and they were different enough that I didn't feel as if the author was repeating themselves. While this is a very short audiobook, it was a good length for a long car ride and I was able to hear most of the stories in one shot.
The narrator does a very good job too, keeping my interest engaged which could be hard considering just how short some of the stories are. Mr. Druin doesn't necessarily differentiate the voices much but it's enough that I wasn't lost on who was talking at least.
If you're looking for a quick listen to fill a small amount of time, this is a good choice. Scary enough to be fun without being gory and if you're really short on time, you can listen to just one or two stories and not worry that you're going to forget what happened by the time you get a chance to listen more.
