The Pit Bull and Other Tales Tom Hamilton

The Pit Bull and Other Tales contains five short stories. Tom Hamilton’s writing is very detailed. He sometimes seems more of a poet in that his stories contain more than just an average sentence, and for it occur in the horror genre was fun to read.

The first story, The Pit Bull, is a tale of love lost–or more accurately love stolen by someone so close it should have been forbidden. How that person who is lost can become so internally torn up and what fate has in store for him.

Red Widow caused chills going up my spine. Mike is one messed-up guy whose take on reality is totally skewed. This story made me rethink my stance on spiders, for sure.

Little Creature was horrifying to contemplate–every parent’s nightmare where their child wanders too close to a swamp in the Everglades.

I have to admit Used Cakes just made me smile a little. Johnny and Jane’s commentary was amusing, and I could picture the rundown areas they drove through and the store they ended up at to buy a cake.

The Adversary was a chilling tale. Men should just realize that sometimes a woman will pick another over them, and they should just get on with life. There will not always be a creature like The Adversary to help them get their supposed revenge.

Overall, I enjoyed The Pit Bull and Other Tales. It contained good short stories, and they were definitely unique, as was Tom Hamilton’s writing style.

About Jkrowyn

My name is Joani and I’m 42 years old. I have a job that lets me listen to audiobooks all day long. On my breaks I turn off the iPod and get out my kindle or paperback, then turn the MP3 player back on when I have to go back to work. I can’t believe I get paid for that!! I started reading a lot in high school, just regular stuff and found I really liked science fiction. But after a while I got lost in all that tech and found the fabulous world of fantasy and paranormal. I don’t think I could ever give it up now. I am blessed to have 4 of the best dogs on the planet. Well, actually they’re not dogs, they’re pugs which make them so much more than dogs. I also have a border collie and 8 cats. All of my animals are rescues and they are all older dogs. I’ve been with my husband for 25 years and we have 1 son. Thankfully they both love to read too. I’ve tried my hand at writing but with so many good books to read I’ve put that on the backburner. I plan to spend my retirement reading. I’m so looking forward to that!
