A Slice of Fear is a collection of fifteen short stories by Andrew Allen Smith. In 'Writer's Block', a writer discovers a far bigger problem than writer's block when every word he writes becomes literal. 'Safe' follows an eight-year-old girl who finds comfort and safety with her doll Shelly in more ways than one. 'Broke Down' is the story of a young woman who finds herself stranded in a desolate place after her car breaks down. Will she find her perfect car? 'Alone and Afraid' follows a young girl whose penchant for horror movies and dependence on technology doesn't bode well when she is left alone at home by her mother. 'The Edge' follows a young woman who buys a mysterious wooden box from a second-hand store, only for her life to turn upside down.
Steeped in suspense and horror, A Slice of Fear is a captivating collection of stories that will have you biting your nails throughout the pages. Author Andrew Allen Smith weaves an enthralling collection, with each tale having a different flavor and twist, but all of them provide a plethora of thrills to satiate your appetite for suspense and horror. Smith doesn't waste a single word, and as a reader, you find yourself instantly immersed from the get-go while having the rug constantly pulled out from under your feet at the climax. Although I enjoyed every single story, 'Down the Drain' and 'The Edge' were my personal favorites of the bunch. Recommended to short story lovers.
