    1. What happens when you mix Steven King with Edgar Allan Poe. You get a collection of fantastic horror stories that are just amazing!!!Pocketful of Fear By Joseph Rubas is a fantastic horror read for those of us who enjoy the works of Edgar Allan Poe or Steven King. Joseph has demonstrated his capability and talent for writing horror stories that aren’t about grossing you out with blood and guts but instead they terrify you psychologically. There is something about this collection that reminds o [...]

    2. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started to read this anthology, but I was hooked fast! The first thing that got me was the brevity. These are super short stories - most are only 2-5 pages- but what fascinated me was how much was packed into each one. This anthology is a powerhouse of sleek, inventive, edgy tales. The stories included are incredibly diverse with different points-of-view, varying locations, alternating time-frames, richly divergent characters and situations. There were more th [...]

    3. 'Pocketful of Fear' is a collection of savory story bites that lets loose the dark side of your imagination and fills your gut with delightfully disturbing narratives rich with images that will tickle your terror and leave you breathless and full. Joseph Rubas invites us into his unlimited imagination, then takes us on a tour through the dark recesses of his brilliant mind. The writing is superb and the tales are succinctly captivating. My favorite story is 'The End', a unique and clever twist o [...]

    4. This is many short horror beginnings. The stories needed more. I felt too much like I was left hanging just for ideas about what a horror story beginning is. They all sounded interesting but just not enough to work with or enjoy.

    5. I admit, I was excited to read this book (because Joseph is a fab writer) and when I finished it in three hours, I had the feeling of incompleteness. Each story held potential but it never really got there. You know when you're on a roller coaster and you think you're going to go down this massive drop and then it's nothing really at all? It felt like that.I saw another review that nailed it--he had begun a storybut that was it. For me, it lacked depth and detail and made the words seem flat and [...]

    6. From the moment I first picked this up to read, I was hooked. Joseph's writing style is epic, to say the least. He has a command over the language, that makes you want to dig deep into his work. My favorite story in the collection is a toss up between, 'Lust' and 'The Hanging Tree'. Both,fantastic stories, and both, had me guessing until the end. I can't wait to read more by this author. I know he has a long career ahead. Love the afterword-- You will, too.

    7. This book was interesting--several short stories wrapped into one horrifically fine package. I actually enjoyed it. Lots of great 'one liners' and several times, although it was horror, the book made me laugh. I actually felt bile come up twice. I may have to pick up the paperback as there is an extra story. I love the end where the author describes why he wrote each story. Overall a very interesting book, and I am glad I read it.

    8. Short story anthologies are hard to rate fairly. Love some, hate some. It all averages into a standard bell-curve. There are some spine-tingling stories in this collection. Some good variations on urban legends and traditional ghost stories.
