Horror-Web just posted a review of the collection today.    :skull

****= 4 Stars
“In the introduction to *Skull Full Of Kisses*, Gary Braunbeck says, “Michael West loves being a horror writer, is in fact proud to call himself one.”  Braunbeck is right, and when you love what you’re doing, it shows.  As I turned the pages of this nifty collection, I couldn’t help thinking about how much fun West must have had writing these stories.  Because I was having a blast reading them.

It took me back to my teenage years, those Golden Days of horror, back when you could use the word “tales” and nobody laughed.  Classic tales (don’t you dare) of monsters and ghosts – nothing deconstructed, no post modern meanderings – just good old scary stories.  The kind you remember when you’re walking down a dark street or driving over an old covered bridge.  The kind that make you look over your shoulder, even though you know it’s idiotic.  Nothing’s there, right?  Right…. ”
