Review: Tres Puercos and Other Dark Tales

Tres Puercos: And Other Dark Tales - Christopher J. Valin

Tres Puercos and Other Dark Tales is a collection of three short stories. The first and longest is "Tres Puercos," a twist on the story of the Three Little Pigs. But when the story is set in the middle of a modern gang, is the wolf really the bad one here?


"Tom Petty Sucks" is the second story, and is a fun little tale about a vampire...who just happens to be afraid of heights. Ending the collection is a story about a man who battles the nightmares of others. While "Wake" is probably the shortest story of the bunch, it's actually the darkest one.


While I expected a little more horror from the title of the book, the first two tales bring more humor into the darkness. This isn't a bad thing, however, and I found that I enjoyed all three of these stories.


Tres Puercos and Other Dark Tales is currently available for pre-order for $0.99 with a release date of December 15th, and can be purchased at
