    I really like anthologies and always give them a chance. This one consist of 2 1/2 stories, which bothered me, because nowhere in the blurb or "about" section does it mention that you get 1/2 a story. It's sad to think that an author has to resort to such tactics to get his books read. It's one thing to know I am reading 1 book in a series, it's another to deceive readers about it. Make no mistake, not telling readers is the same as lying about it, readers have expectations. The first 2 stories " I really like anthologies and always give them a chance.

Make no mistake, not telling readers is the same as lying about it, readers have expectations. The first 2 stories "Babysitter" and "Darkside" are pretty decent stories, but they took too long (for short stories) to get to the "BANG" so it is easy to see it coming (in both stories) thus decreasing the "horror" effect. The final 1/2 story is a standard ghost story and not a haunted house story, even at only half a story it is easy to see where it is going, although not how it will end. Unfortunately the story is nothing special and nothing about it urges me to get or read the next book, which by the way is 5 printed books in. If this is any example of the other 4 books, I can only say that there is apparently a market for lackluster writing. My 2 stars go to the the illustrator of the jacket cover, nice work.

    This book was such a fun read!! I am a horror freak and I have not seen this book before. I decided to get it and loved it. Very short stories but very good stories.. I just hate the fact that the last story in this book is my all time favorite and it ends with a cliffhanger and it starts up again in the second book. Ugh!! Hopefully it will be free soon so I can finish off the story.

    Poor attention to detailing, simplistic and loop-holed plots and rushed narration. Also, the ploy to end the last story abruptly to entice readers to buy the next book was kinda annoying.

    3 Stars I want to say thank you to author Tom Coleman for my complimentary copy of "Horrors of the Night: Most Scariest Stories to Puzzle Your Mind". This was the second book I read written by this author and I enjoyed this book even more than the first one I read. It's another short book and quick to read through in one sitting.

This was the second book I read written by this author and I enjoyed this book even more than the first one I read. It's another short book and quick to read through in one sitting. This book was three stories, but technically the third and final story was left uncompleted and on a cliffhanger so in order to find out what happens you will have to read the next book. I would have much preferred for the story to be completed in it's entirety as opposed to it just stopping as it did at the end of the book. This is the only thing I did not like about this book. The first story is "The Babysitter" and it focuses on Rachel who is babysitting a pair of siblings. The babysitting job definitely does not go as planned and she finds herself fighting for her life. This story had all of the elements for a good quick horror read - haunted house, dark atmosphere, and death. The second story is "Darkside" and it focuses on married couple Selene and Damien. Selene is happily married and loves everything about her husband Damien but he is hiding a secret from her and she knows there's a secret. Damien has a secret room and he has forbidden Selene from entering but when she does can she let the secret go and can she salvage her marriage? The third and final story to this anthology is "Hernandez". This story focuses on another married couple - Christina and Carlos Hernandez and the new house they just purchased. After moving in they discover that their new home may be haunted. They see strange silhouettes running about and this is where the story ends; hence the incompletion. I understand that the author wants his readers to read his next book in the anthology, but I really did not enjoy the fact that the story was left unfinished. Overall the book was a fun quick read that had some really great horror components and I would continue forward with reading Tom Coleman's books. Once again thank you Tom Coleman for the opportunity to read another one of your books.

    In the book, Horrors of the Night, Part One, the author, Tom Coleman, presents three short horror stories. The first short story is “Babysitter” and is about Rachel, who is babysitting Jeremy, ten years old, and his sister Maya, who is eight. Rachel only has to babysit for one or two hours, but Mr. and Mrs. Grayson, their parents, are very apprehensive to leave their children alone with her. During that night Rachel will understand exactly why the parents were so concerned and why her own life i In the book, Horrors of the Night, Part One, the author, Tom Coleman, presents three short horror stories.

Rachel only has to babysit for one or two hours, but Mr. and Mrs. Grayson, their parents, are very apprehensive to leave their children alone with her. During that night Rachel will understand exactly why the parents were so concerned and why her own life is in danger. The second story, “Darkside” is about a couple, Selene Foster and Damien Richards. Damien, an artist, has recently become more and more secretive and insists that Selene is not to enter his private room. He has invited three close friends to spend the weekend and promises her that he will show her his artwork after his friends are through visiting. But when Selene goes into the basement to visit with his friends she finds that not only their lives, but her own, are in deadly peril. The third, and last story is “Hernandez” and tells the story of a married couple, Christina and Carlos Hernandez, as they get ready to move into their first home together. While moving in, they see a dark silhouette of a large man, whispers, footsteps, disembodied faces, and eventually an apparition of a young girl. After the ghost confronts Christina, Christina runs through the house in order to escape her. The story ends there, to be continued… I enjoyed the three short stories, although story one and three do not come to a conclusion. Despite the inconclusive ending, I found them still to be entertaining horror short stories. What I found amazing is that the second story is actually based on a real story!

    A nice little collection of three short stories. Babysitter is a classic story in the style of teenage horror genre. Darkside shows how a nice situation can quickly go bad. Similarly The Curse of Hernandez demonstrates how the perfect getaway can go oh so wrong. The third story is incomplete (finished in Book 2), but I enjoyed it as it is. There is some grammatical errors and typo’s, but this did not really worry me: many self published authors cannot afford a proof reader.

    I received this book as a promotion by the author. It was an enjoyable and quick read. I found some of the mechanics of the writing to need some improvement and some of the story line in each of the three stories to be a little simplistic. I think with some minor adjustments and more showing vs. telling, this could be a really good set of stories. If you can work past the points I listed previous, I would recommend this as a fun read.

    There are two very short stories that somehow manage to drag in the middle of each. There is also a partial third story that is "to be continued" in the next book. From the errors in the stories and the odd phrasing, it almost seems like English is not the original language of the author. The concepts were dealt with in a clunky manner of writing that lost the effects of the original ideas.Maybe that's why I felt disappointed n this book.

    Huh I was very much looking forward to reading this book... however it consists of 3 short stories and the last one was to be continued. Since there were 3 stories I kept hoping one at least would be worth reading. They were not scary at all not even odd or disturbing. For me this book is suited more for younger adults or teens. Maybe they will find it better then me.

    I didn't like that the author left the last story on cliffhanger. The first and second stories are great. I loved that end the end of Baby sitter there was cameras. And in the 2nd one I really liked Craig's character. Though there were loopholes in all the stories but they were fun to read. Not at all horrifying.

    I hoped it would get better as I read...but it didn't The first two stories seemed to be written as a high school writing assignment, so not very in-depth characters or plots. Making the last story as a "too be continued" was ridiculous, mainly because this was the poorest written.

    More Editing Needed I enjoyed the stories but I found several errors. Some regarding detailing who the correct person was speaking; some spelling or word choices. More editing / proofreading is needed. That was my only issue with the stories.

    The first story was really good and I should have rated it at 4 but the second didn’t feel complete and the third obviously leads to a next chapter but subsequent books don’t indicate how many others there are to reach a conclusion

    This book consists of 3 short stories, but they do not manage to give you the chills even though you may be reading it alone in the dead of the night. And the 3rd story is incomplete - what more can I say.

    Strange tales Short stories of horror. Each story is written well but they end abruptly, leaving the reader dissatisfied. You end up being annoyed that there is nothing more.

    Terrifying The author leads you in calmly but throws you into terror and nightmares. Keep writing Tom. You scared the living daylights out of me.

    I received this from a Book Funnel promotion. It was okay. I don't think I'd read any of the other in this author's series, though. I received this from a Book Funnel promotion. It was okay. I don't think I'd read any of the other in this author's series, though.

    Horrors of the Night I feel these two stories are the type of storytelling in which you as the reader will need to continue. In order to gain any perspective into the storyline.
