    The story, The Peeling, it the first story in this collection. It is a story centered around an unimaginable outbreak. However, and more importantly, it is a story also about what and who people are or become when chaos goes into overdrive and death is at every corner. Enjoy an emotional, crazy, and inspirational story that takes its readers through the events of the onset of the nastiest outbreak one can imagine. Iain Rob Wright will guide you through the good, noble, wicked, and vilest quantit The story, The Peeling, it the first story in this collection.

Enjoy an emotional, crazy, and inspirational story that takes its readers through the events of the onset of the nastiest outbreak one can imagine. Iain Rob Wright will guide you through the good, noble, wicked, and vilest quantities that structure humanity. While readings ask yourself, what would you do if the world became infected with a flesh-eating virus? Would you be a person who panicked or one who would give your life to same those you could? I cannot honestly say what kind of person I would be in a time of such a horrific crisis, but I hope I will be like the main character, Devey.

    I must admit I did not read the "Other Terrifying Tales." I just wanted to read about the Peeling. The science is horky, and there are multiple typos and broken spots in the narrative. And the evil scientist in the lab made me roll my eyes. (He was way too "BWWWWAAAAHHHHAAAAHHHHAAA" and hands-rubbing-together for me. ) I wanted to read it to dip my toes into some Iain Rob Wright. He says in the intro that the Peeling stories were written when he was less mature as a writer. It shows. But the weir I must admit I did not read the "Other Terrifying Tales."

    Iain Rob Wright's earlier works might suffer a bit from lack of narrative and the occasional plotholes, but certainly make up for it in enthusiasm and originality. The Peeling was originally one of Iain's earlier works and consisted of five seperate short stories that were all set in the same time period. A period where the world is in the grip of a devastating and terrifying pandemic called 'The Peeling' Iain himself claimed to be unhappy with these early stories, but I was quite impressed with Iain Rob Wright's earlier works might suffer a bit from lack of narrative and the occasional plotholes, but certainly make up for it in enthusiasm and originality.

A period where the world is in the grip of a devastating and terrifying pandemic called 'The Peeling' Iain himself claimed to be unhappy with these early stories, but I was quite impressed with both the storylines and the different characters. The first part of this book adds a new chapter to these stories and I hope it won't be the last.... Then, for desert, we are treated to some of the stories that the author wrote for his band of supporters on Patreon. Yes, my name is in the front of this book - super cool fanboy stuff - and this author deserves more fans! Head over to Patreon and pledge if you dare...! All in all a fabulous little book and very much worthy of your hard earned cash.

    I usually really like Iain Rob Wright, and I wanted to love this book...but.... Right off the bat, the editing was just awful. A couple examples I spotted in the first 12 pages of the book included: "Me and her will be a team." "I doubt your squeamish, being a nurse, but it was a nightmare." (Note the use of your instead of you're.) Unfortunately, the editing, or lack thereof, continued throughout the entire novel. Then, oddly, I felt like I was reading two completely different Peeling stories. I usually really like Iain Rob Wright, and I wanted to love this book...but....

Then, oddly, I felt like I was reading two completely different Peeling stories. The symptoms, the modes of transportation, the length of incubation....nothing was the same from one story to the next. Even worse, it really wasn't a very interesting plague. As for the short stories after The Peeling, apparently, a mother can lose a finger and just go about her day...no medical attention required. Oh, and a character can go from being a man named Jay to a woman named Jayne in just a few pages...no explanation given. Can't lie though, I found myself laughing out loud at the description of the plane and the pilot in the story Chicken Boy, but all the references about vaccines not causing autism, I really could have done without. Overall, a pretty goofy, boring novel. 1.5 stars

    Fantastic collection of stories, 90% horror, 10% hilarity. It is somewhat rare to find a short story collection where you like every single story, but this was one for me.

    This collection from Iain Rob Wright features several stories about 'The Peeling', as is obvious from the title, but there are other stories included too. Firstly, there are a lot of different takes on the story of 'The Peeling', a life ending infection that literally peels the skin from anyone infected, and how it effects people from different walks of life. I enjoyed the different perspectives which made all the stories, and the world they're set in, feel much more alive to me.

Secondly, and somewhat surprisingly are the inclusion of some literally laugh out loud moments of some of the other stories such as 'Chicken Boy'. I had to stop reading one night for fear of waking my sleeping wife with my laughter! As a fan of Iain Rob Wrights horror stories it was nice to see this side to his writing. Is there no end to his writing talent? Don't worry though because there are horror elements to these funnier tales too. I have one small criticism of the book overall though and that's the spelling mistakes that crop up far more frequently than you'd expect from such an accomplished author. That said, don't miss out on this wonderful collection though as the positives far, far out weigh the negative.

    A great collection of horror and some humour in places. The Peeling, in my opinion, highlights the question as to whether the human race deserves to be saved because of the despicable acts individuals perform in the name of survival. The extra short stories were a curious mix of nasty and humour. I laughed out loud at Chicken Boy - a clever spoof of the author's 'life'. I don't like to spoil stories for others so I will just say that each of these shorts is definitely worth reading, each thought A great collection of horror and some humour in places.

    I liked the first story enough but as they continued on the same theme, I found it difficult to stay interested. The writing was good. I was thrilled to have only stumbled across one grammatical error. (Most e-books I read seem to have a dozens.) I really just couldn't get invested in the characters much after Devey.

    I have read many of Iain Rob Wright’s books. I usually enjoy them quite a lot. This book must not have gone through an editor before being published. Misspelled words, singular/plural mistakes, letters left out of words, and a little blip in the story line. It was almost obnoxious reading it with all the mistakes. I would recommend almost ANY of his other books, but NOT this one.

    ENJOYABLE! I enjoyed these 'peeling' stories. I loved reading about how the peeling affected different groups of people at different times of the deadly outbreak. Author, Iain Rob Wright, is something special. ENJOYABLE! I enjoyed these 'peeling' stories.

    A very entertaining collection! The stories set in the world of the peeling were especially horrific as I could vividly picture it. The humor in the final short stories was a refreshing change of pace. I really look forward to reading more by this author!

    Not a bad one This wasn't a bad little read considering I'm not a huge fan of short stories/novellas. It was interesting to see the very real difference between the experienced, evolved writer and the beginner. Had to lose a star for the slightly iffy proof reading.

    Loved the peeling The stories about The Peeling are great!! I really think this author should write a whole book based on that alone. The other stories are ok but don’t hold a candle to the first few. It’s worth getting this book for that alone.

    Fun story, but it goes too far off the rails for me. There are also some strange continuity errors. Still recommend though!

    I liked the first few stories, and found it hard to put down. His stories are so detailed that it makes you feel like you're there. I liked the first few stories, and found it hard to put down. His stories are so detailed that it makes you feel like you're there.

    the first story is fine, its strange and obviously the author doesn't quite know how to end it, but we've all been there many times - and I am actually quite okay with it as long as the rest of the story is engaging, which it is. The other tales however, is a different thing - This concept cannot carry a book, it could only carry a short story. For those reading this, I will say that the other stories are in the same "universe" as the peeling.
