    1. It is very rare to find a collection of short stories where every single one is gold! Even rarer is to have this collection from ONE author who delivers 18 tales of well written, original, and the disgusting, bizarre, comedic feel that only Strangehouse can compile. John Bruni's has an amazing ability to tell multiple different stories each with it's own tone and pace where honestly I would have thought each story was written by a different author I never hear the same voice twice in my head whe [...]

    2. Short stories are really growing on me. I liked most the stories in this book. One did confuse me a little though, Corpusplasty, the last few sentences were repeated and it took me a while to figure out that I think it was just a mistake and I wasn't missing some point of it all haha. However, pretty clear writing and some very good ideas. 5 stars.

    3. Fantastic! It is hard to find a collection of shorts that does not contain at least a few duds. I thought that each one of these had their own voice and all were well done.

    4. Strangehouse is my go to publisher for all things bizarro. I support a lot of publishers but these guys have yet to dissapoint me and as I read Tales Of Questionable Taste I was once again reminded of why this is my favorite publisher.Despite the fact that it was a freebie on I have bought just about everything Strangehouse has released and would have paid for this one as well. I loved this anthology a great deal and highly recommend it to everyone. While going into all of the stories would be [...]

    5. I won this book in a giveaway. While it is not something I would typically read it was quite good for what it was. I have some friends who I could definitely see really enjoying this book.

    6. John Bruni's TALES OF QUESTIONABLE TASTE is:Tales of Fantastic TasteTales of Disturbing TasteTales of Bizarro TasteTales of Horrible TasteTales of Engaging TasteTales of Experimental TasteTales of Gripping TasteTales of Hilarious TasteTales of Enormous TasteTales of Whimsical TasteTales of Frightening Taste This collection of seventeen short and shorter and a-little-longer-than-short tales is hard to describe as any one thing. This is a collection of stories from the mind of John Bruni. He isn't [...]

    7. These are definitely tales of questionable taste. A couple of them made me want to not finish them, but I did out of morbid curiosity. I'm glad I finished them. They were entertaining, but very dark. I wouldn't recommend this book for young readers, but it's good for adults with questionable taste in reading material.Note: I received this book for free through the First Reads program.

    8. 18 uniquely interesting stories that kept my interests throughout. Would recommend it to anyone interested in darkly twisted stories. Good read. :-)

    9. I have to say, I loved this book. It was funny, clever, and unique. I like short stories, but they can be hit and miss. These were almost all great

    10. A mixed bag of short stories but there are a few that are worth seeking out:Suicidal Tendencies - My favorite of the bunch. Reminiscent of Fight Club in the aspect of seeking out vulnerable individuals for your own devious purposes at self-help group meetings but still highly entertaining and imaginative.Monster Cock - Illustrated on the cover, this is a hilarious doomsday tale that made me giggle. I especially appreciated the detail of how the rich were able to view it through their superior te [...]

    11. [Full disclosure: John Bruni is a personal friend of mine and I've had the pleasure of running many pieces by him at my own site, Forced Viewing.]The debut short-story anthology from John Bruni. This being a Strangehouse Books release, it's not a surprise that the selection of stories mainly covers the strange, tasteless & disgusting end of John's range (the subgenre ain't called "bizarro" for nothin'), but it does show off his ability to work within diverse modes. Highlights include the Twi [...]

    12. Shocking, disturbing, and all around fun read. If you like to be shocked and appalled then you will enjoy this scurrilous little tome. Just a warning you might find bits to be jaw dropping and gag inducing depending upon your mental framework. You will enjoy the ride.

    13. This is another great collection of SS put out by SHB – all from author John Bruni. I first read Bruni during my HOLIDAY HORROR – Binge & Purge Christmas of 2012. His story FAMILY MAN is in the HACKED UP HOLIDAY MASSACRE anthology, and I really liked it – it’s pulls off a great twist that shorts usually aren’t able to accomplish. Remembering that, I knew that this book was going to be a fun read for me!See the full review & join in on the discussion at BBB! I've posted another [...]
