    Asylum by Matt Drabble is an excellent collection of short dark fiction The wrapper for the stories reminds me a bit of a Night Gallery episode or something from an old school radio theater show I sometimes struggle with short story collections, because inevitably I am disappointed with a few of the stories not so with Matt s latest There is not one sour grape in the bunch Each one of the 13 stories grabs you from the get go and will keep you turning pages long into the night.So, take a to Asylum by Matt Drabble is an excellent collection of short dark fiction The wrapper for the stories reminds me a bit of a Night Gallery episode or something from an old school radio theater show I sometimes struggle with short story collections, because inevitably I am disappointed with a few of the stories not so with Matt s latest There is not one sour...

    After reading Gated, by the same author, I became an instant fan I love Matt Drabble s writing and find him to be reminiscent of Bentley Little and Richard Laymon His narrative is laid back and flows effortlessly, dragging you into his story and forcing you to feel something for each one of his characters, whether that emotion is positive or nega...

    First, what I liked about the book I really liked the way the stories were weaved into one tale I like a short story in a magazine, but rarely buy a collection because the stories tend to be disjointed from one another These stories were different ish from one to the next, but they were linked together by the sub plot Well played There were two big things I didn t like about this book I had the end pegged at about chapter three Bummer Worse than tha...

    Perhaps closer to 3.5 If you enjoyed the portmanteau films of companies such as Amicus in the 70s then this book will be just your cup of tea In fact the framing narrative is similar to the Robert Bloch scripted film also called Asylum The stories are nicely varied mixing supernatural with just plain sociopathic There are two problems with the book in my opinion first there are some very jarring word choices that break the suspension of disbelief, the book reads like an America...

    Stories I liked okay Picking Up Strangers maybe it was obvious, but I didn t guess the ending at allNo Strings Attached it reminded me of a Twilight Zone episodeStories I disliked the most The VoiceMethod Acting Dish of the Day to be honest I was going to put this in the neutral category but I realized I have way too many questions about the story Also I guessed what the dish was just from the title which actually isn t a negative for me, though I know it would be for some people.To be Stories I liked okay Picking Up Strangers maybe it was obvious, but I didn t guess the ending at allNo Strings Attached it reminded me of a Twilight Zone episodeStories I disliked the most The VoiceMethod Acting Dish of the Day to be honest I was going to put this in the neutral category but I realized I have way too many questions about the story Also I guessed what the dish was just from the title which actually isn t a negative for me, though I know it would be for some people.To be honest, every other story including the main wraparound one I could probably find things I liked and disliked My main issue was that a lot of the stories had the same basic premise person is mean and cruel towards others or worse and then someone a group something punishes them in some way This only works for me if the ...

    Took away a star for poor editingI really enjoyed the stories detailing each mental patient s reason for being in the institution, but I had to take away a star for sentences missing words and inconsistencies in some of the story lines Just one example the characters are in the living room standing in front of a fireplace, when suddenly a glass from the kitchen is flung across the room, since they are in a mansion there is no way those two rooms are actually the same.Overlooking those missteps Took away a star for poor editingI really enjoyed the stories detailing each mental patient s reason for being in the institution, but I had to take away a star for sentences missing words and inconsistencies in some of the story lines Just one example the characters are in the living room standing in front of a firepl...
