LEASH And Other Short Horror Stories is a
horror anthology of thirteen short creepy, scary and sometimes
gruesome monster stories. These hair-raising stories will make your
mind tingle and your paranoia kick into over-drive.

This chilling set of frighteningly strange and weird stories are tales of
the unexpected, of deceit and of unspeakable beings that hide in the
recesses of the mind and the shadows of dark forests.

A tale of a gas station attendant and the creature that stalks him in
a storm like he had never witnessed before. The newly found journal
entry of Robert Tolliver's nightmarish dreams that ravage his life
after a horrific accident in the swamps of Louisiana. A butcher's
child was created of steel and blades used to cut meat. A story about
a new embalming fluid with a terrible side effect. The tale of a man
and his friends on a camping trip, A leather collar and a vile beast
that reigns over a pile of corpses. Plus many more.

Leash and Other Short Horror Stories is a collection of short horror stories that all seem to be intertwined. There's a man named Mr. Arnold who gets mentioned in the story It Came with the Storm, and he pops up throughout various stories. He ties them all together. I thought that was a nice touch with this collection.
It Came with the Storm made me think of The Mist by Stephen King, but also had a Lovecraftian feel. I think this story was probably my favorite. 
The story Room 1317 gave me a Vacancy vibe (that's a movie with Luke Wilson and Jessica Biel). I liked that one too. Definitely didn't expect it to go the way it did. 
There's a Ten Foot Man in my Basement Eating Children was weird, but also kind of amusing.
R.D. Balm is a fun little zombie story.
And Something is Not Right About Those Flowers was another story I liked. Never trust people, and never go with them to a cabin in the woods. 
I did notice some issues with editing/proofreading. The book could definitely use a set of fresh eyes to go over it and fix some of the errors. They were a little bit distracting while reading.
Overall, though, Leash is a mixed bag of stories, and fans of horror will find something within the pages that will thrill them.
3.5 stars from me.

★★★★★ "S79 has a super fun plot. You’ve got swamps, abandoned military base,
science experiment gone wrong, conspiracy theories, urban legends,
pitch dark atmosphere, snakes, gators, rednecks, revenge, and a
pretty epic creature." - Aimee M. - Goodreads
