I loved this short story collection of dark fiction. In all there are 8 stories by some wonderful authors: Kealan Patrick Burke, Simon Wood, and Joe McKinney among others.
My favorite was "Outside" by Kealan Patrick Burke. This was a tale worthy of the X Files or Twilight Zone. Freaky and creepy-just my thing.
My other favorites were: "The Sunseeker" by Simon Wood "Though Thy Lips Be Pale" by Maria Alexander. There is also an introduction by Scott Nicholson regarding the state of horror today. T...more

I'm surrently reading a number of horror anthologies and collections. The cover of this one caught my eye and I recognized a couple names, Scott's among them. Nicholson claims in the beginning that he's the last of a dying breed. Right there I should've guessed there might be something amiss. I don't decry the claim, but I do the sentiment. I've read a ton of horror writers lately, most newly hatched, and I've read a lot of writing that claims to be horror and isn't. So...more
In the introduction, Scott Nicholson writes that, at least for a dark moment the Horror genre was dead. But he finishes his intro that it it alive and well, thanks in part to the indie writers. I think the Kindle and it's brethren, along with the availability of self publishing with Amazon (and others) helps keep these stories coming. I am happy!

This anthology of Horror shorts is very well done. Vampires, zombies and ghouls creep through the pages. Well written. I enjoyed all of them. The one a...more
I'm not a huge fan of short stories, but I found this an enjoyable read (there was one particular entry, however, that still has me going 'huh'?). Looking forward to checking out Nicholson's other collaborative short story collections.
Each short story in this anthology was literally "just ok". Wasn't bad for 99 cents though.

Not every story in this collection is awesome, but it's still a great collection to read.
