Rigor Morbid: Lest Ye Become #Review

Rigor Morbid is a brilliant collection of 12 horror stories that introduced me to some really fab new writers and I am now dying to get my hands on more of their work. I have already made some purchases on the back of this wonderful little collection and I can’t wait to dive into more weird and wonderful tales!

I read this collection over a month ago and some of these tales have really stuck with me, I can’t get them out of my head!

Some true highlights from the collection for me were:

MRSA Me by Alicia Hilton. Now I read this after travelling from the UK on two planes to Thailand, and knew I had another two planes to look forward to in order to get myself back home again, so that added to the scary a lot. Oh and, if you’re freaking out about coronavirus, maybe don’t give this one a read? Or do…

Ivan’s Emporium of Curses by N Sowers. Sowers is a new writer and blimey I am so excited! Emporium of Curses has some Needful Things by Stephen King vibes, yet approx. 750 pages shorter and punchier!

We All Scream by Hailey Piper. I don’t have much to say really except for, bloody hell.

Trigger Finger by Joanne Rixon is a totally unique take on a zombie tale and oh my word. Putting myself into that situation I honestly cannot even imagine. It’s one of those stories that you read and then you just need to stare into space for a little while.

Above are some highlights from the collection, but I honesty loved them all, most of the stories I would give in this collection is 5 stars, plus a few that were 4. If you haven’t heard of these authors, it is a seriously good and quick way to get an introduction to some new faves!

You can find this book at many retailers via clicking on the appropriate link on GoodReads. Buying direct from retailers is a good way to support indie authors); however, in the spirit of supporting literacy programs, we would like to point out that you may be able to purchase this book through BetterWorldBooks.
