The characters are so well defined and developed and made each story exciting. It is written in a great format, very easy to read and understand. Each one held me and a few scared the heck out of me. Every tale was like its own adventure and I will be reading it again. They would be great for reading at a Halloween party. - Lilmissreader Reviews .August 2016
I found Tony Thorne more droll than truly gruesome. His concepts are clever, his writing sharp and quickly to the point, and he closes with a quiet flourish... He delves into personal areas, our daily lives and asks you to consider the alternatives that are conceivably possible, if only... Explore our potential future with Tony Thorne. Recognize that some tales are indeed possible right now! Highly recommended for a true exploration of the macabre. - GABixlerReviews, August 2016.
The Macabre Tales by Tony Thorne are a fascinating collection of speculative, short science and fantasy fiction stories. They are well-written in an artistic way while maintaining the technical language and ideas. To dream up these macabre stories with, in some cases, climaxes that you cannot foresee, it is a skill that is not wasted on his avid readers. Themes range from alien life to ancient artifacts with medicine and science in between. Think about playing on a fear in a way that it seamlessly becomes part of your reality. Some characters learn to accept it while others discover too late that it is their fatal mistake. These tales will either make you look over your shoulder more often or look at future change in a different way. - Review (5 stars) by RachelHoron, Indiana, USA, November 2014.
Macabre Tales is a collection of short stories that will amuse and entertain you to no end. These are stories that I would be comfortable sharing with family and friends. Each story is moderately short, so if you don't have a lot of time for reading, this would be a great choice. I found myself on the edge of my seat during one story, then smiling and chortling during the next. This collection is very imaginative and original. If you want a unique entertaining experience, I highly suggest you put this collection of short stories on your list. Posted by, Rebecca Minto, Reviewer, USA. June 2015
