Scared Silly

Scared Silly is a collection of short stories from Frank J. Elder that live up to the name- they're scary, but they're also very silly. Horror comedy is truly a lovely thing.

Old Scrote- Zombies can be a very scary thing, but up the horror a bit by having a zombified clown running around. Meet Old Scrote (or Dildo Baggins, depending on who you ask), your walking dick munching nightmare.

Splat- When you're on a deserted road zipping along, you're liable to hit something (get it? no? then google onomatopoeia). The horror in this case does not involve summoning an insurance agent, but you almost wish it did.

GROSSeries- Imagine the zombie apocalypse starting. Now, substitute the zombies with foodstuffs. It might not sound scary, but have you seen some of the stuff that's come into existence lately that's called food?

Death Gets A Life- Imagine for a second that Death took up residence in Florida and managed to finagle a day off. That's right- How Death Got His Groove Back or How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Watch Out for Cruise Ships.

Wolfberries- No, not Captain Crunch's take on Fruit Brute (bonus points if you get the reference!). More like organic fruit gone wild. Awooo!

This collection of short stories was some great fun to read. The only real question I was left with at the end of the collection was "Did the artist who made the cover see Killer Klowns from Outer Space?"
