First off, Yes, I am one of the authors in this anthology (Beneath Still Waters is my story), however I'm giving it a 5 star rating because I love the other 11 stories in the book. I read them all and enjoyed them even when they creeped me out or gave me the shivers. Each is as unique as its author and just as wonderful. I have absolutely no problem recommending each of their books and believe readers everywhere will also enjoy this entire collection of stories.

I think the very first written anthology hands-down would be that classic, The Bible. Long before the ink hit the papyrus though, we had that awesome story teller, Socrates... who sat upon many a marble step and shared his tales and philosophies with anyone who would listen. (FYI: Plato listened well.) What is an anthology? An anthology is a collection of literary works chosen by the compiler. It may be a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. In genre fiction anthology i...more

Creepy shorts that don’t disappoint!
I’m not usually a fan of short stories, but when I picked this up, I found myself engrossed in each and every tale that I read. From the spine tingling folk lore of Scott Nicholson’s Wampus Cat to Catie Rhodes graphic realism with a twist of humor in Haste, I thoroughly enjoyed the uniqueness of each story. Tamara Ward’s Jade O’Reilly and The Graveyard Shift had me looking over my shoulder at the creeks from my floorboards and Rhonda Hopkins story The Consumin...more

Tales from the Mist
Review by Bill Hopkins, author of Courting Murder

I've grown up loving to be scared. Thus, when I had a chance to read Tales From The Mist, I jumped at the chance and jumped when I read the stories. All these stories are worth your while, but I've got to give kudos to a couple that really sent ice spiders dancing down my spine.

Rhonda Hopkins (no kin … drat!) in "The Consuming" places her character (Serena) in one of my favorite subgenres of horror: The haunted house. Naturally...more

Each story in this collection of creepy tales grabbed me from the first line and didn't let go until the end! They aren't scary in a don't-read-this-before-bed way, but are more creepy in a remember-it-long-after way. "Haste" by Catie Rhodes was a twisted look at a woman's revenge on a cheating husband - and its dire consequences. "The Consuming" by Rhonda Hopkins is the perfect example of gothic horror, when a woman's skepticism of a haunted house is her downfall. "The King of Rats" is a cute s...more

What a happy occasion it is when a reviewer can say about an anthology that the quality is consistently excellent, and that every story included (plus the Foreword) rates a 5. Such is the case with “Tales from the Mist,” a collection of twelve stories written by notable authors, each one designed to scintillate, inspire, and chill readers. Author Aiden James, who penned the Foreword, suggests reading with the lights on. This reviewer agrees, but adds, I was still chilled! I don’t wish to single...more

I had no idea what to expect when I ordered up my copy of Tales from the Mist. I bought it based on my respect for one of the writers, Catie Rhodes, more than on an inherent love of the horror/paranormal genre, but I found something surprising as I read these 12 mostly excellent short stories. I found that I really enjoy many aspects of the genre itself. You see, a well-written horror story allows a writer (and a reader) to explore facets of human nature that she may otherwise not examine. And i...more

I picked up this book because I follow Catie Rhodes’ blog and enjoy her Freaky Friday posts. I adore haunted house and ghost stories, so of course my favourites in this collection were “The Consuming” and “Beneath Still Waters”. Catie’s story “Haste” was a refreshing and humorous change from the typical ghost story, and I found “To E.A. Poe” to be disturbing and chilling. There were a couple of tales I didn’t enjoy very much, but that’s the case with every anthology. A reader is not going to lov...more

I really enjoyed this book. As a Spooky Halloween Anthology it has something for everyone. If you like a good Vampire story, got it. A haunted house, yes. Crazy, vengeful Ghosts, check. Dead bodies in the freezer, Check. Deals with the Devil, yes, its in there. Reincarnation and betrayal, check. Murder, check. Like Edgar Allan Poe stories, check out "To E. A. Poe" by Mitzi Flyte--for a Poe-ish treat. A new twist on ancient folktales, yes, there is a story about Lilith in there, too. There is som...more

The Tales From The Mist anthology is spooky and creepy and filled with thrills and chills. While horror isn’t my normal reading material, I found I couldn’t put this book down. It’s the perfect way to start out the All Hallows Eve season and is filled with paranormal stories to fit any mood. From ghosts to rats to tales retold, and things that go bump in the dark of the night, if you’re looking for a scary read – or just a really engrossing book – check out Tales From The Mist. You’ll have a scr...more

Wow, what can I say?

Witches, vampire rats, ghosts, a haunted house, shape-shifters and many, many more.

It takes a lot to creep me out, but these authors managed it. I'm not going to add to the other reviewers except to say. Wow!
Nancy Hammond
a great collection of shorts; from horror, with a little mystery, suspense, and humor -each uniquely intriguing and entertaining. short stories are my favorite horror read, which is how i became hooked on Steven King. well worth the read.
Sherry
Was quite entertaining. Some stories I hated to see end. I love how vast our imaginations can be.
Anna Erishkigal
Horror delivered just the way I like it ... in small bites.

I will preface this review by stating I am not a fan of horror. While everybody else gushes about authors whose names rhyme with 'ring' or hobknobs about the latest horror flick, I cringe and sing a happy little tune in my own mind. This anthology, however, gifted to me by a friend, was different. Each story has an unusual, non-gory twist that is quite different from the usual slasher-grade fare that passes as horror these days. Each pro...more

Tales From the Mist is a compilation of 12 great short stories. Paranormal fiction by a delicious variety of authors, each with their own distinct style that will send goose bumps right up your spine. Some tales are a tragedy, with a crushing loss at the end. Some feature a narrow escape. Others feature an ending that promises new beginnings, a hint to a happy future. And there are those where the characters can only be resigned to their eternal fate.

I read one tale per night, savoring each befo...more
Terry Parrish
Quite a few interesting stories in this anthology. Really liked them all except one. The story itself was good, but did'nt care that it was rats! Suppose no one really likes them at all. But I also feel this book is worth every penny spent. Especially if you want to read something different.
