Musings From A Demented Mind by Derek Ailes and James Coon is a collection of horror tales that will keep you entertained. A man hears his mother's voice after she has passed; a man in a retirement home discovers that secret experiments are going on; aliens land in a small town as two Russian prostitutes are trying to avoid the police after they killed a guy. Stories of revenge, experiments, hauntings and more similar to the old style Twilight Zone tales. I enjoy tales with a twist to them, especially short stories. I think Games was an interesting take on how the Christians were persecuted, brought up to the present day. A Horror Story was a good read as well.

Derek Ailes' and James Coon's stories are entertaining. There is a good mix of stories here that covers a wide range of horror creatures and scenarios. A couple of names were used more than once, which might be confusing. I don't think they were the same characters from previous stories. However, I think that the plot ideas made up for that though, and I did enjoy reading this. I think anthologies are becoming more popular, particularly in the horror vein, and that this will do quite well on the market. Fans of old shows like the Twilight Zone will be entertained.
