"A World of Terror" contains many different worlds of terror, it is in fact an amazing cross section of all types of horror: it contains werewolves, haunted school buildings, ghosts, flesh eating monsters and dead trees to name a few.
Bringing together a large ensemble of writers the pieces are naturally written in a broad variety of style which makes this a inspiring reading experience. The stories range from more classic horror settings with wooden chests, dead trees and the devil to modern one

This is a diverse collection of short horror stories sure to have something for every appetite. Many of the stories I enjoyed very much, while others weren't to my taste. But that's the way it is when you a read collection like this.

My favorite was The Clearing by Tony Gilbert. It was creepy, cool, and fantastical, just the way I like my horror to be. I also really enjoyed Millie by Berk Washburn. Don't read it if it's dark and you're home alone. (Or do, if you want to spend the rest of the nig
Here is a brief bit about each one that I read:

Murielle Cyr-Class Reunion
A pupil from June's past arrives to ruin her chance of promotion.
I liked this one. June was a real bitch to her pupils and staff and you want her to get what she deserves. Nicely told and developed (3 star)

Danielle DeVor-Dawn
Something evil is chasing a boy and he is 'saved' by a werewolf.
I liked the tension filled start then it kinda fizzled out a bit. OK I guess (2 star)

Wodke Hawkinson-Death hates his job
The Grim Reaper be

For the most part, I enjoyed this book far better than A World of Possibility, the first book in the series of anthologies by ASMSG Authors.

I found the stories to be generally well-written, the plots were good, and some of them were even quite funny. They were also all quite short, something I really like in a collection of stories. Some of the stories suffered from minor grammatical errors, inconsistent tenses, stuff like that, but not enough to detract from the stories themselves.
