Read full description of the books:
When I first saw this collection of short stories, I thought it could be really fun. I am a fan of b-grade (or worse) movies, so I figured stories written like them would be something I would enjoy as well. But I started having doubts as I was reading the introduction. In it, the editor says the book came about because of the popularity of Fifty Shades of Gray, a book that I have gladly avoided. He called it cryptoerotica. He warned that there would be sex, violence, and language. I said okay and proceeded with caution.
Some of the stories did live up to the b-grade movies. They reminded me of some of the cheesy movies made by SYFY. One even reminded me of an early Doctor Who episode (if it had been written by Monty Python, or at least a cousin to them). Another read like a Sam Spade novel written by H.P. Lovecraft. Those parts were the good stuff.
The problem was that there was a lot of bad stuff to offset the good. Several stories had problems with details. For example, one character goes down steps when entering a building and then down steps again to leave the same building. Some stories could have used more explanations of why stuff was happening or at least a clearer way of presenting it.
I know I was warned about the language and all but I still feel the need to address it. Oftentimes, the language and general crudeness seemed to be added solely to be crude. It read like little kids swearing just to prove how grownup they were.
Most of the stories ended up sounding more like fan fiction stories than stories written by professional writers. I know they were going for a b-grade movie feel, but they still could have made it sound professional.
There are good points to this collection, just not as many as the bad points though. I got the collection as a free download and that is what it is worth. You can give it a try, but don't pay anything for it or expect a lot from it.
