5.0 out of 5 stars Macabre Tales is an amazing thriller anthology with some hard hitting stories !
Reviewed in India on 23 June 2021
Dale Carnegie once said -- "Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy."
I say-- “ Do sit at home and keep fear as close as possible to you, because before you know it by the end of this book , you may just lose it and become fearless!”
