    1. Michael Montoure is one of my favorite authors. This book was my first taste and hooked me right away. I unfortunately never reviewed it because I don't tend to finish collections of short stories. I think it is time to remedy that. At $0.99 for this anthology, one I look back at years after starting it as my favorite collection of horror shorts, this is a steal of a read. Here are some reviews of my two favorite stories in this book.Cold SeasonMichael's voice has such power, perfect for the thi [...]


    2. I won this book through Giveaways. Delivered today. 10-28-11. A signed copy from the author himself, plus a little goody-bag for Halloween. At our house we celebrate with party food and lots of candy. The ghosts and goblins will invade our home when they see the door decoration. Only they know that a door decoration is really a special invitation to come in and be treated. I shall have a special treat for myself--SLICES! THANK YOU!10-30-11 Finished reading. Enjoyed these "spooky" shortstories. T [...]


    3. I don't read a lot of horror books, although I do enjoy watching scary films from time to time. However, the title and description of this particular anthology called to me, and so I entered to win an advance copy. I was lucky enough to receive one, so many thanks to the author and publishers for their considerate gift :)However, I was pleasantly surprised by how varied, and interesting, each of the stories in this anthology truly were. Montoure uses familiar tropes such as vampires and ghosts, [...]


    4. “Some Stories Won’t Let You Go.”That’s what the underwriting says on Michael Montoure’s Slices: 14 stories (and one introduction) from an up and coming author of horror fiction. And maybe you’ll see that and say “meh,” and think it’s nothing you haven’t heard before, and wonder why it’s not being published by a “real” publisher… and so on.But hold on a moment, friend. Take that part of your brain that tells you why not to read something offline for a moment, and liste [...]


    5. Slices of dark unreality. A collection of short stories each with a sinister undercurrent that leaves you wondering about perceptions of reality. My particular favourite is Remake – a sinister tale indeed based on the delusions of one man.It’s hard to review and rate a collection like this. Over all, I enjoyed reading. To go tale by tale, some stood out more than others and some I didn’t quite get. A very subjective thing, of course and what I enjoyed, someone else might not and vice versa [...]


    6. I got this one from early reviewers on library thing and i'm glad i did. "Slices" is an interesting anthology of short stories from the very talented Michael Montoure. The best thing about short stories is that you can read them during your lunch break at work, before bed, or when you have a few extra minutes in the day. The thing about this one is that i wouldn't recommend reading before bed unless of course you can easily shrug off what you have just read. A perfect blend of horror, twisted, a [...]


    7. I always loved the horror short story subgenre (Especially Fantasy Horror). I even still have the Scary Stories collection from my little kid days that was some ridiculous short stories that can scare the crap out of you, until the twist at the end. So it’s always a thrilling excitement when I can come across more short stories that are like that. And I found it with Slices by Michael Montoure, who absolutely writes horror how I would do it. Slices is an anthology of fourteen of his short stor [...]


    8. SlicesMICHAEL MONTOUREAn imagined disease spreads across a city. A fading horror movie star crafts his replacement. Two thieves wait for rescue at the end of the world. Human monsters are put to their final tests. Time stands still in fairy circles, loops in on itself for a runaway child, and can be rewritten in the pages of a book.

    9. Skip the first four and start with "Daddy's Girls", continue from there to the end and then you can go back to the beginning. It is at the fifth story that I forgot I was reading, holding my phone, that I was me. I was absorbed.“The skyscrapers of the city had finished scraping all the sky away, and the clouds overhead were exactly the color of concrete and I was safe and cold in a canyon of glass and steel.”"Daddy's Girls"Creative, compelling, clear voice, consistent, characters not just s [...]


    10. A wonderful dark, twisted, and sinister collection that is disturbing in all the right ways. This book will have you cringing and flipping pages like never before. Michael Montoure has written a great collection of creepy stories that are perfect for Halloween, or any other spooky occasion. All the stories are short enough for anyone to read while waiting at the doctors office, or on your lunch break and I highly recommend that you do!Read more reviews from Stuffed Shelves


    11. Wonderfully disturbing! This collection of short stories is so good that I couldn’t stop once I started! Several had me cringing so much that I did have to stop to breathe…but that only lasted a moment as I couldn’t wait to get to the next one to see what creepy treasure was coming next!! I read some out loud at night to my husband so at least I wouldn’t be the only one scared and having nightmares! Mean I know… but I couldn’t help it! This kind of story telling is best shared, and o [...]


    12. I listen to Michael Montoure's horror podcast Don't Read The Latin, and decided I had to check out his writing, so I bought this.This book contains 14 stories that will grip, scare and chill you each in their own way. They are all pretty different, Montoure has a great and creepy imagination. Sometimes I want the stories to be longer, sometimes he rounds them up in a perfect, frightening manner.I will definitely buy more of his books, and if you're a horror fan, you should check him out!


    13. To start off with I have the kindle version. Ok Slices is a collection of the most bizarre short stories of horror ever. From the first one Cold Season to the last Counterclockwise I would be hardpressed to say which one is my favorite they were all that good. Daddy's Girls is definitely high up on the list. Do yourself a favor and read this wonderful collections - you won't regret it. I won this from LibraryThing.


    14. I LOVED THIS BOOK! Although I am a fan of horror movies, I generally don't read fiction at all. I was eerily enchanted by Montoure's short stories, and finished the book in one evening. It was a psychologically thrilling page turner that I couldn't put down. The plot twists were dark, yet delightful, stabbing at the core of what it means to be human- or in some cases, not so human.


    15. Entertaining collection of creepy, fantastical tales. There were one or two which I didn't love as much as the others but they were still enjoyable to read.Would happily read more books from this author.


    16. This is one of the best short story collections I have read in a while. Most of the stories were fresh ideas told from new viewpoints. All dark, creep and horrific. Some were more subtle than others but they all worked.Recommended for those who enjoy King and Poe.


    17. Another collection of chillingly effective stories by one of my favorite Seattle horror authors. Montoure's voice is strong, and his stories haunt memory and color dreams long after the covers are safely closed and the book installed innocuously on the shelf.


    18. Holy crap. I just read the first story, it's 2:30 am, and I'm now wide awake. I know I shouldn't start the next one, but I know I will.
