    Isaac’s parents have gone out, left him to it, after all, it’s his 16th birthday and he’s invited everyone to his house for a party. Only his close friends have bothered to turn up though and this is fast becoming a disaster. Inexplicably the lemonade bottle is full of vodka and things are looking up, time for some prank phone calls, come on we’ve all been there.   First up a call to the Chinese takeaway to order an Indian meal, ok not very funny but everyone’s laughing, it’s a party.

Only his close friends have bothered to turn up though and this is fast becoming a disaster. Inexplicably the lemonade bottle is full of vodka and things are looking up, time for some prank phone calls, come on we’ve all been there.   First up a call to the Chinese takeaway to order an Indian meal, ok not very funny but everyone’s laughing, it’s a party. Next up Barbara and a call to the local law firm asking for advice about her brothers skid marks, she hasn’t got a brother and this cracks everyone up. Is it just me or is this shit not funny and should you expect to reach a law firm after seven in the evening, I think not. This coupled with some cringe worthy dialogue had me thinking, it’s a good job this is a short story because I’m losing the will.   A dice game follows and Isaac is continually rolling three sixes, interest starts to develop and the story actually gets quite creepy as our host discovers he has some pretty nifty abilities.   Iain Rob Wright is working his way through the alphabet with short tales of terror, B is for Bogeywoman, C is for Clown, you get the general idea and currently up to F is for Feral. A is for Antichrist started off I have to say pretty badly but rescued itself and ended up turning into a menacing short story. 2.5 stars and also posted at http://paulnelson.booklikes.com/post/...

    Truth be told, I did not mind this story of the unknowing Antichrist coming into his own on his 16th birthday. After a slow start, it intensifies into a satisfying - if fairly standard - short story. On that basis alone, I would have happily given it 3 stars and gone on to chase down B, C, D, etc in this alphabetised series.

However, and this is a big one, somehow Wright or his publisher (I suspect they are one and the same) managed to release a version of the story that still had the final round of edits made via "track changes" included within the work. It's hard (for me at least) to overlook something so fundamental that was allowed to pass and then permitted to continue existing months after its release. It screams of a significant lack of care factor. So ... 2 "It's My Party and I'll Have Your Eye Out if I Want To"s for A is for Antichrist.

    Ok, this was my first read of this authors work. I have heard his name mentioned by quite a few people and he is part of a group of authors I follow. I noticed this short story was a few places above my own story in the horror charts so I thought I would give it a go. This was a fun short story. It was pretty cool, reminded me a lot of "Horns" I think. I enjoyed the writing itself, this new breed of horror writers seem to write in such a way that it just makes it easy to read.

    I am not sure what to think of this one. It started out well but then it became an evil game. I understood the action but I really wanted to get inside the mind of the boy. Little background of the boy would also be of help.

By the end of the party, Isaac will not just change from a boy into a man, but into something else entirely. GROWING PAINS CAN BE HELL… I downloaded this story for free from Amazon. My copy had editor corrections in it. I think Mr Wright uploaded the wrong ebook file. This story starts with a sort of slow burn, with subtle hints as to what's going on. And at first I was having a lot of fun with it. I was smiling, I was amused, I was having a good time. But then, the crap hits the fan and any sense of creepiness is dropped for a quick, violent ending. We didn't get into Issac's head enough, for one. There was too much telling, not showing. In one moment a character is on fire and in the next, they're burned to a crisp and dead. No flailing, no trying to douse the fire, no smell of burning flesh and hair, no drama. Just "On fire" and then "Dead". While it was fun for the first 3/4ths of the story, the characters were flat and interchangeable. I kept forgetting which character was which until I was given a description. It seems the author forgot about at least two of them through most of the story. I know I did. When I started this review, I rated it three stars, but now that I've laid out all my problems with it, it's a 2 star. This is the first of a series of shorts from A-Z. I don't think I'll be continuing this series.

    Issac is 16 and ready to become a man, with the party of a life time especially with his parents out of the house! At first the party is a bust but as soon as some prohibited alcohol surfaces it starts to go a bit crazy, only odd things start to occur around Issac.

As the teenagers slowly get more drunk, Issacs every wish, desire and comment appear to be coming true, a bit worrying in some cases, smirk worthy in some but slowly building scary tension overall. The finale has some very gory mental images but the ending was flat and rushed IMO. There was no conclusion, after thought or reasoning. If this is the start of a series of shorts then I hope they get more involved and hopefully they will be inter-linked, as IRW is so clever at that in his longer novels. I liked the reference to the horror movie, that was clever.

    Ain't no party like an Antichrist party. I've been a fan of this Author many years now but A for Antichrist is one of the books I've put off reading for one reason or another. After finally sitting down and reading I can say without a doubt that Iain is one of the best Horror writers around. While the story is a quick read the characters were fleshed out nicely for the amount of time they had on page. Also this story was incredibly fast paced and kept me glued to the story from start to finish. L Ain't no party like an Antichrist party.

I know I would love to read more. In the end I give this one 4 Stars.

    Wow! This short story certainly packs a creepy punch. A coming of age story with a remarkable difference, that ends with one of the best understated comments ever. A good giggle to balance out the demonic and visceral happenings of a 16yo antichrist and his birthday party. You wouldn't want to be a guest! Looking forward to reading more of this author's work.

    This is a short story, which starts off quite normal and progresses into somewhat horrific! Some people take power to the extreme. Really enjoyed this and loved the very end too. I'm already looking forward to reading more in this A-Z horror series.

    Fantastic story! Not too crazy about the length of it. It seemed to end just as I was getting into it, but I love the idea of 25 more of these bite sized portions of IRW's writing.

    I wanted to check out a new horror author and that is how I stumbled on Ian R. W. and this story (that came free and its better then getting a sample of something). I didn't know what to expect. The story starts with a nice pace and setting, group of friends celebrating 16th birthday and waiting for people to join the party. Basically we are briefly acquainted with their relationship and their social standing. Other people jump in and later some older girls even.

Basically we are briefly acquainted with their relationship and their social standing. Other people jump in and later some older girls even. However the party gets a turn when the birthday boy gets powers. I know it sounds interesting, but the main character, Ian, hasn't been enough portrait. With his powers comes a change in character, which hasn't been done very well. There is only a paragraph where we see his internal struggle, figuring out that his more aggressive than usual. So at the end his change of character to extreme evil wasn't justify. Although a fair part of the events could've been predicted and the action goes at a straight line, I would give this author another change, since writing short story and doing twists and plots in few thousand words is very difficult.

    I randomly downloaded a bunch of free horror stories to my kindle because we're getting close to the month of spoops. A is for Antichrist is a short story about a sixteen year old boy who discovers on his birthday he's actually the antichrist. It makes for an interesting premise, but maybe my love of horror and having sat through several movies and games, both good and bad, made this one not as good as it could have been. Honestly, a lot of the horror seemed cheesy. Like if you're visualizing it, I randomly downloaded a bunch of free horror stories to my kindle because we're getting close to the month of spoops.

Honestly, a lot of the horror seemed cheesy. Like if you're visualizing it, it's just some over the top stuff that would be in a cheaply made B-movie. Isaac also goes from 0 to 60 super fast, and I feel maybe it would have benefited from being at least a little bit longer so the shift could have left like a good sudden and not a bad sudden. Overall, it's not great but it definitely could have been worse.

    A Splendid Short Read This is the first work of Iain Rob Wright that I've read and I was very impressed. The story revolves around Isaac at his 16th birthday party and how he slowly transforms into someone of pure evil. The author gradually builds up the horror and tension as Isaac discovers the things he can make his party guests do. A perfect short and satisfying read for that bus ride or train trip.

    Quick, dark read Anyone who’s interested in the horror genre should definitely read this! At only 32 pages, it’s an incredibly short read, but totally worth it. The ending leaves you hanging and wondering what comes next, giving you all the more reason to continue with the rest of the series. Definitely recommend this one!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Well, it is a short story, short and good. The theme is pretty simple - a boy on his 16th birthday party, suddenly found that he possessed some strange powers and controls over everyone and everything. The story unfolds and the boy became the Antichrist. The writing is very very good. I. R. Wright knows how to create moods and settings necessary for a horror story. It's a thumbs up for me.

I went into this book thinking that it had promise, but I found it quite a bore. It’s a quick read, and I sped through it, as per usual, but I was left disappointed. Nothing remotely scary happens within this book, and I’m heavily disappointed in the horror on every page tag line on the front of the cover. The story in this moves very slowly, and there is no discernible plot line. The story errs into suggested rape at one point. The horror doesn’t start until the very last through pages, around 72% of the way through the story. All in all, the ending was alright. I have a lot of qualms with this story but the few pages that the horror was incorporated into were enjoyable, I suppose. It seemed mostly over the top, almost like the author was using shock horror more than trying to write the story with the theme of an antichrist character. I didn’t really enjoy this at all, and I wouldn’t recommend this, even with it being only 22 pages. It’s not worth reading even to bump up your reading challenge. this RTC.
