Extreme Horror Anthology," the fast-paced prose is always there and the gore, sex and violence are almost always unrelenting and intense." - Horrorphilia This book took 5th place in Preditors & Editors Poll for best a ...more

Note: Since this is an anthology, I’ve commented on and rated each story individually, and then I rated the book overall.

Cherry Clubbing by Kenneth Yu: A couple of like-minded (twisted) men have a chance meeting in a foreign country where their “appetites” can be satisfied.

Short story anthologies need to have stories that pack a powerful punch for me to enjoy them - I don't enjoy reading just to kill time.

Every short story was awesome. I was intrigued by each one. Most stories were unique but well written. Starting part 2 now.

I'm not just reading this because I'm in here. There are a lot of good stories by other authors in this collection.

Lot of stories here, but only a small percentage of them were really good, the rest were mediocre at best.

Bloody and gruesome stories. Good read for really hardcore horror fans
Oct 16, 2012 Estott rated it it was ok
Some good stuff but more gore than sense in most of them. Nothing memorable.
