Michael Laimo's "Rare Cuts" is filled with 24 engaging short stories, including every type of Horror/Fantasy/SciFi tale imaginable. Due to the graphic nature of several of the stories, it's not for kids or those easlily offended. That alone should make you want to grab this one. Michael is one sick pup. The collection starts with a twisted tale of a suicide hotline worker in "1-800 S-U-I-C-I-D-E" and includes a story of a mob boss getting into the worst kind of pornography imaginable in "Snuff's Enough" . Some of the stories have the feel of watching an old Twilight Zone episode, while others...Oh, I forgot...Zombies in "Run Of the Dead" which blends Zombies and and Gladiators in a very strange future. I picked this up as my January, Amazon Prime Lending Library, selection. This was the best FREE e-book I've read to date. If you don't have Prime, you can get it for a very reasonable $2.99. Well worth a few bucks.
