    Offering up a healthy mix of surreal creepiness, psychological weirdness, and physical terror, Thing Bailiwick is a collection of well-written horror that deftly demonstrates Fawn Bonning's literary skills. I won't run down all the stories - to do so would be to spoil the thrills and chills - but let me share with you some thoughts on the first few. The collection opens with a story of a sad, lonely, emancipated dog, found dying alongside the road . . . or is it already dead? You'd think it would Offering up a healthy mix of surreal creepiness, psychological weirdness, and physical terror, Thing Bailiwick is a collection of well-written horror that deftly demonstrates Fawn Bonning's literary skills. I won't run down all the stories - to do so would be to spoil the thrills and chills - but let me share with you some thoughts on the first few. The collection opens with a story of a sad, lonely, emancipated dog, found dying alongside the road . . . or is it already dead? You'd think it would be a simple question to answer, but not so much for one young mother, who tragically finds out that no good deed goes unpunished. A bloody, unsettling tale from start to finish. Next, we're introduced to a group of young punks who foolishly choose to torment an old man who wants nothing more than to sit and feed the birds. It's a story comprised largely of dialogue, but there's some character development along the way that makes the supernatural twists at the end all the more powerful. From there we turn to a darkly humorous tale of two young thieves and the sarcastic old woman they make the mistake of robbing. This one is a more traditional a narrative, complete with some skin-crawling descriptions of disembodies eyes, but the banter between the old woman and the thieves is what makes it so entertaining. A group of young men are at the heart of the next story as well, but there's no torture or thieving involved here, just some innocent bullying . . . and, well, a whole lot of fear. As soon as the challenge comes to spend the night in the forest fort, you know it's not going to go well, but they way the claustrophobic terror builds here is very different from the first few stories. I'll leave you to discover the rest for yourself, but suffice to say Thing Bailiwick is a surprisingly strong collection that delivers consistent chills. There's an air of mystery throughout, with certain details left off the page, and many of the conclusions somewhat open-ended, but that's part of what appealed to me. Leaving something to the reader's imagination is key to effective horror, and loose ends are what keep the fear alive.

    A great collection of horror! Who’s in the mood for some disgusting gore, terrifying monsters, and psychological thrills? I know I was, and I was not disappointed with this short story collection. Each story has a different horrifying situation, and perhaps a scary creature or two, such as a demon, vampire, goblin, or... Garth Brooks?!? Haha, kidding about that last one, though Garth did make an appearance and set the mood for one of the stories. I don’t think I’ll ever look at a Garth Brooks so A great collection of horror! Who’s in the mood for some disgusting gore, terrifying monsters, and psychological thrills? I know I was, and I was not disappointed with this short story collection. Each story has a different horrifying situation, and perhaps a scary creature or two, such as a demon, vampire, goblin, or... Garth Brooks?!? Haha, kidding about that last one, though Garth did make an appearance and set the mood for one of the stories. I don’t think I’ll ever look at a Garth Brooks song the same way again. What I loved most about this book was the way that all of the stories, though independent of one another, were all connected in some way. For example, the black dog from the first story (which was personally my favorite, as it was the most gruesome) is mentioned later on in several other stories, and we learn who first owned her and how she died. Other stories have overlapping characters as well, and I think it would be fun to go back and try to find the connection between each of the stories. Anyway, if you’re a horror story fan, I would definitely recommend this book!

    Thing Bailiwick: A Collection of Horror by Fawn Bonning A collection of chilling short stories, guaranteed to keep you up late at night. Each story is original, thrilling, frightening, spooky and intense tales of horror. There is something for everyone, witches, goblins, vampires, ghosts, werewolves, demons and more. The writing is superb a must read for horror fans. I highly recommend Thing Bailiwick: A Collection of Horror to readers 18+ (due to some graphic material).

    Wow! There are many "things" in life and may I never meet any of the ones found in these stories.I was spellbound by some of them.Encorporating people or things from the other stories was clever and made me think back to the other story and what happened.A wonderful book to read before bed and try to sleep peacefully "without" looking around your room first to make sure you were alone.You can be sure that my eyes looked until they were too tired to stay open.
