Grave Tales by Craig Jex

Grave Tales by Craig Jex

Grave Tales is a collection of eight short stories by Craig Jex, writer of the exploitative, EC Comic styled Brutal Bombshells. Written over a period of twelve years each short story is drenched in sticky crimson red, bookended with two highly exploitative tales of terror.

Grave Tales may be a short read at only 69 pages, but it is one collection that will grab you by the throat and won’t let go until your eyes burst from their sockets!

“Thank God for a quick funeral…he had never done anything like this before, even with a live member of the opposite sex.”
