Book Summary: If you love quirky and macabre short stories but have become discouraged over the lack of originality these days then this book will renew your faith! Here are 18 bizarre tales that Rod Serling himself would feel right at home with. "Weirder Than Weird" is assured to keep the reader captivated on those cold winter nights when all you want to do is to curl up with a good book and let your mind run wild.

Imagine, if you will, the worst case scenario for a woman who holds the deepest and darkest of secrets. She tries to keep this ignominious shame from her psychologist but he knows her secret all too well and she ends up paying the ultimate price for her indiscretions. Or... consider poor Keith Tuttle, a young man who unwittingly becomes part of a horrifying tale that damns him for all eternity but strangely enough, someone close to him unexpectedly profits from his doom. Another story called "Arrival Time" will allow you to peer into the life of a solitary man traveling through space and what he has come to rely on in order to keep his sanity. Will he lose it? Stand by...

"Weirder Than Weird" is chock full of the most unusual tales that you will ever read. Can you hear the whistle blowing? The train is about to leave the station. Next stop: Macabre-Ville, Humor Heights and Whacky Wherever. The only question now is... Will you be on board?
Book Review: I am not sure where to begin with these. Some of these stories were scare worthy and the others did nothing to scare me at all. There were some tales I enjoyed but I felt most of them were more suited to be told around a campfire with a group of scouts or with friends in hopes of scaring some of them right out of their seats. If you want something that is quick and light for reading, then these tales would definitely be for you but try not to read them in the dark.
