    This little novel is a collection of short stories that try to answer a “what if” question for the reader. Each short story has its own question for the reader to try and decide an answer to. Fiction novels like this are very nice to read as it give the reader a chance to live out each story on their own by giving them a chance to say “what if” I did this or that. In one collection “After the Party”, a reader is giving the question of whether or not they could give birth to and raise a demon child This little novel is a collection of short stories that try to answer a “what if” question for the reader. Each short story has its own question for the reader to try and decide an answer to. Fiction novels like this are very nice to read as it give the reader a chance to live out each story on their own by giving them a chance to say “what if” I did this or that. In one collection “After the Party”, a reader is giving the question of whether or not they could give birth to and raise a demon child on their own. Now things like this are not necessarily out of the question, but the reader is thrown into the novel as if they are giving birth to the demon child and wanting to get rid of it but eventually deciding to raise it as their own. In another “Dance of Death” the reader is taken back to the French wartime and the question is raised about whether or not corpses can be raised from the dead thereby refusing to die from the use of mustard gas. The reader has to think about this question, can corpses be brought back to life? En las Sombras, A third question that gets answered is what if I was abducted by Aliens, not out of the norm again… If you think about it the government has been trying to cover this up for some time, but the author uses words that visually makes the reader think they are being abducted and used for experiments. After escaping they are able to hide from the aliens and return to a normal life. In another short story called Witchery Afoot you have to wonder if what If there were people who can do witchcraft. There are many people who believe in this stuff and many have been burned at the stake for this. This story involves a lady who is giving relief to pregnant women by making potions and stuff, but everyone thinks that is witchcraft and has been run out of town for this. Novum Vicinos, has the reader questioning what if I bought a house by a cemetery. After Seeing all kinds of paranormal activities happening to the homeowner, Having a glowing orb floating in air and disappearing over a fence, this activity can be fed from the mind as you realize that you are home alone and in a new house with a cemetery behind it. Your mind plays all kinds of tricks on you and you can’t figure out what is real and what is not. Liturgy, what if you had a certain object that had a special power? This novel leads the reader down a path of a demon being inside a crystal. The crystal is able to take over people and make them do things they normally would not do. After doing its bidding the crystal will lie dormant for years until finding the next person to perform its acts. What if this could happen, imagine all the things you could make people do, reminds me of “Carrie” but it would be neat if this could happen. Rating: 6.0/10.0 Review: I would give this book a 6, in my opinion the use of what if questions is a good way to get the reader to think about what they are reading and then asking themselves if this happened to me what would I do. I especially liked the story Liturgy, using a special orb or something to take over another person and make them do different things has always caught my attention, there are many movies about this and they always have kept me enthralled and watching.

    Horror Bent is several stories in one. These stories include demons, possession, zombies, ghosts and magic. It has stories from the best of all sorts of horror categories. The stories are short and easy to get into and finish quickly. Personally, my favorite was the war time zombie story and the last story which was about possession and was the longest short story in the book. I enjoyed how quick and easy this book was.

Personally, my favorite was the war time zombie story and the last story which was about possession and was the longest short story in the book. I enjoyed how quick and easy this book was. Horror Bend was well written and it isn't too scary that it would give me nightmares. I usually hate zombies and they scare me half to death, but I really liked how Brian wrote the story. He never stated them as being zombies, just the living dead. In this short story it is a battle between two countries and it describes life in the trenches and it really gives you the feel of how awful the soldiers had it. I really enjoyed how descriptive it was and how I could feel the cold damp feeling of the trenches as if I was there myself. Not wanting to go into a lot of details and spoil all the reading fun, I won't say what all happens. Each story is very unique and almost seems to have a different writing style in each one, which is refreshing and keeps you reading. Horror Bent is a nice read right before bed or while sitting in the dark curled under the blankets. I think it's a good horror story for younger readers as well because there isn't a lot of swearing, nudity or violence. Well, expect for the zombie story, that might have been a little violent with the killing of the undead and whatnot. The only thing I would say is that I do wish the stories were longer and more detailed. I wouldn't mind reading a full length book about some of the short stories, they are just that interesting! Thank you very much Brian Bigelow for sending me this book to review! I really enjoyed reading the several short stories included in Horror Bent. I look to reading and reviewing your other works as well! 3/5 ~Layna

    "Horror Bent" by Brian Bigelow was a surprise find for me. I am not hot on short stories to be honest and find myself drifting off after reading a few. I read the book however in one sitting and found it strangely compulsive. The stories are moving through the horror genre, witchcraft, monsters, demons - you name it and they will probably make a small appearance in there somewhere. The author however has given the stories a lot of thought and he explains at the end of the book where his ideas ha "Horror Bent" by Brian Bigelow was a surprise find for me.

The author however has given the stories a lot of thought and he explains at the end of the book where his ideas have come from. The stories are very well written, the fact that each story is of different length shows how good a story teller Bigelow is, as he seems to instinctively know when to stop and how far to exploit a theme. I previously read his "Confessions of a Porn Store Assistant" and found his factual prose there very engaging. The transformation from one bok to the next however into fictional prose is admirable and adapted very appropriately. Very enjoyable!

    I'm going to get my husband to read this one. It's a quick read, and worth every minute. War stories, haunting, witches, supernatural forces coming to a hero's "assistance" - it's all in there. One of my favorite stories even has zombies, and who doesn't just love zombies, right? The plot moves along like lightning and the characters are well-developed. If you're looking for a quick, engaging short horror book (I read it on an airplane flight), check Horror Bent out. You will love it. I recommend I'm going to get my husband to read this one.

    I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review. This is a great book filled with a collection of short stories. What's better than a book filled with Zombies, Witches, Aliens and Ghosts? Of course my favorite was the zombies. Who doesn't love zombies?

    From demons to aliens, witches to zombies–this short anthology is up to its ears in them. Six stories, every one of them different, and every one of them well worth the read. In “After the Party”, we find out what happens when Sydney has one too many at a party, and lives to regret the results. But not right away–she has to raise it first… “Dance of Death” takes us to the French countryside of World War I. If ever there was an incident to bind enemies together, it would be what happened on that da From demons to aliens, witches to zombies–this short anthology is up to its ears in them. Six stories, every one of them different, and every one of them well worth the read. In “After the Party”, we find out what happens when Sydney has one too many at a party, and lives to regret the results. But not right away–she has to raise it first… “Dance of Death” takes us to the French countryside of World War I. If ever there was an incident to bind enemies together, it would be what happened on that day. “En Las Sambras”–translates to “in the shades”. Jay is witness to an out-of-this-world event when he heads up to take shelter and refuge in the mountains of Colorado. He’s lucky to escape with his life. “Witchery Afoot” – my personal favorite. In 1672, Margaret, a healer and supposed witch (considerd as such because her help does more good than the doctors’ visits of the time), has been banished from her village. It wouldn’t take much for the men of the town to rise up and capture her, for they want to burn her to cinders. She’s been able to hide from them for some time, but then she makes one mistake… “Novum Vicinos”–yes, you always should find out who your neighbors are before you sign the lease. And, finally, “Liturgy”. Angel has a visitor, in the form of a glowing green crystal. What it has planned for her, and for whoever it wishes to inhabit, is a question that might keep you up at night. Or, at least, keep you away from glowing green crystals in your lawn. Mr. Bigelow has a good handle on the creepy. Fans of shows like “Twilight Zone” and “Night Gallery” would really like this book. Good job, sir–I hope there’s more to come.
