Tricks, Mischief And Mayhem, by Daniel I. Russell, is one super collection of short stories! Daniel knows how to put them together. And, through the end of the month, this 485 page collection is only $1.99. That is a super deal. So mosey over to Amazon and get a copy to put on your Kindle. You won't be disappointed.

This is my review below:

Tricks, Mischief and Mayhem, by Daniel I. Russell, blew my socks off from story number one, Living Haunts, in this one author collection of superb tales. And they stayed off. This is one amazingly diverse collection of short stories, written by an incredibly talented young author. He has a huge career ahead of him. My favorites in this collection were Living Haunts, The Blood Pit, By The Banks Of The Nabarra, and God May Pity All Weak Hearts, the last story in this collection. What gets me about the last story is how the author managed to catch the time period so well, adding a surreal touch to a truly imaginative tale. Having just started writing a few Gothic tales myself, I understand all too well the work it takes to pull off a tale such as this. Bravo, Mr. Russell! This is writing at its best.

Daniel I. Russell has written a grand collection of tales for every horror reader to enjoy. There is absolutely no way anyone will not love this anthology.

Tricks, Mischief and Mayhem by Daniel I Russell

Another excellent collection from one of the rising stars of Oz horror. Russell's first collection is an eclectic mix of dark humour and visceral carnage. Ranging from the Australian bush to gritty northern England, there is something here for most fans of the genre. Mythology, noir, history, sexual perversion, zombies, clowns, dolls and killer plants are all woven masturfully into the ouvre of Mr Russell.

Though the stories are not listed in chronological order, anyone familiar with Russell's work can see the progress he has made over the past decade in his mastery of the horror craft. A tribute to the effort he has put in and his love of the genre.
