“One thing I love about Barry Hoffman: he has enough faith in his work to self-publish, and could seemingly care less what anyone else has to say about it. More writers should have his passion (and, of course, his talent!). Barry…keep these shorts coming.”

— The Horror Fiction Review

“These stories embrace the terrifying realities of the human condition and, written in Hoffman’s lean prose style, the scares come fast and hard. Here is another fine collection from an author who consistently delivers the heartpounding thrills readers have come to associate with his name.”

— Tomb of Dark Delights

Love Hurts is a collection of short stories that truly tears at your consciousness…(The stories) all prove that Hoffman is at the top of his game.”

Horrorreview

“I thoroughly enjoyed Love Hurts. The stories…are quite disturbing. Take a bow (Barry).”

— Richard Christian Matheson

From the Introduction by Barry Hoffman:

“Most of the stories I pen are written because I love writing. If I’m not working on a novel…I still want to be writing something. It’s in my blood. The stories in Love Hurts are among my favorites. I imagine if I wanted to I could get them published in magazines or anthologies. For those who enjoy my writing, though, I think these stories appearing as a mini-collection will be more enjoyable”.

Praise for Hoffman’s Blindsided, the 4th title in the “Eyes” series

“Combining sensationalistic terror with poignant examinations of character, Blindsided – is exciting and emotionally involving, as capable of evoking philosophical inquiry as white-knuckle suspense. This novel is at once both an unapologetic thriller and a thoughtfully lyric expose of the hidden byways of the human mind and heart in conflict.”

— William P. Simmons

“These stories embrace the terrifying realities of the human condition and, written in Hoffman’s lean prose style, the scares come fast and hard. Here is another fine collection from an author who consistently delivers the heartpounding thrills readers have come to associate with his name.”

— Tomb of Dark Delights
