Horror Review: Horrors and Occupational Hazards by Sharon L. Higa

We turn the Ruins over to Donald again today, with a newly horrific review.

Sharon L. Higa's debut collection takes the everyday clockwork schedules of maybe an average Joe, on his way to clean out a backyard pool or the hair salon, when suddenly a stuck up bitch comes storming in.

The author then unfolds the horror of such scenarios, spilling some blood to finally silence the annoying. I found Horrors and Occupational Hazards to be interesting. The concept makes it a smooth read, leaving you thinking about what will happen next in each story.

Flushed Away: Mrs Thompson's pipes are backed up, and when the plumbers are called in . . . they find something a little more eerie than something stuck in the pipes.

Knock Knock Housekeeping: Two best friends work side by side cleaning rooms inside a hotel. Every so often something is left behind and becomes a possession of theirs. This time the value of an item is a deathly pick.

Dispatcher 157: A scheduled truck stop for a pick up becomes a delivery of pure terror and blood splatter and nothing but a deadline.

A fine collection for readers enjoying a whimsical horror with a little blood splatter here and there.
