Hello Fellow Readers 

It's October, so that means spooky season is upon us. So what would be a better way to kick it off than with some Horror. Horrific Modern Tales is unique in two ways. One, is that each story includes a sort of updated spin in that it uses Modern Technology to introduce its horror, I guess this is where the Modern in the title comes in. I do like this aspect, even if it does feel slightly foreign, but as technology evolves so must our horror stories. 

The second reason this book is so unique is that each story includes artwork. I really loved each piece of art and in my opinion it kind of stole the show. Many would probably find each piece of art a bit weird but I really like weird and spooky. I really enjoyed this book, each story was just long enough to be interesting but short enough that it didn't drag on.
Overall, a great start to October
