If you can’t handle a full serving of the extreme horror dished out by Matt Shaw, he’s prepared an appetizer just for you. Seven BITE SIZE stories are included in this collection from horror’s darkest imagination.
“They say [money] can’t buy you happiness but I disagree. I mean it doesn’t buy happiness directly off the shelf but it buys things that bring happiness. Like whores. And drugs.” ~ The Guy – ‘FUN AND GAMES’

Valerie sits and thinks about her life. Even the little things seem important now, everything matters. Let this SS serve as a reminder – appreciate it all while you can.

Matt gets really excited when he’s waiting for the new game systems to come out.
LAUGHTER IN THE NIGHT:
Beth had a long day at work. A cat had to be put down after an accident, and it’s owner did not appreciate the work done to try to save it before the inevitable happened. Beth took the brunt of his anger, and can’t get his words out of her mind.
It’s scary when your pets get loose, and you’re not sure if you’ll get them back. It can be scarier if your neighbor’s pets get loose – if your neighbor keeps creepy pets that haunt your nightmares.
FUN AND GAMES:

Sounds simple enough, right?
