Shelves: short-story, horror
I've always been a fan of horror-based short stories. When I was a kid I tore through all the Stephen King collections, like Night Shift and many others. Over the years though I've moved on to focus quite a bit of my reading time on longer, novel-sized fare. Buried Tales of Pinebox, Texas marks my return to reading short stories, and after reading this collection, I remember why I am much more a fan of horror as a short-story form than in a novel.

The stories in the collection come from a varied

This is an anthology of horror stories set in present day rural East Texas. For a concept, the authors have been given a setting (which has been fleshed out as part of a table top role playing game) and a collection of story hooks (newspaper clippings that were created as part of the game setting).

The goal of horror is not to scare you out of your wits through the story. The goal of the writing is to draw you in so that you can build in your imagination something that is worthy of fear and shock

Buried Tales of Pinebox, Texas is a collection of 12 horror tales loosely connected by their setting: the fictional East Texas town of Pinebox. From Skinwalkers to Ghosts and from Aliens to Werewolves, Pinebox seems to have it all, as well as one of the worst cases of denial in recorded history. Produced by 12 to Midnight, Tales of Pinebox is inspired by the modern, pen and paper RPG horror setting of the same name, also produced by 12 to Midnight.

First we have The Jennifer Ridge Transcripts, th

This is a very unique collection of short horror fiction and I can see why it was nominated for an ENnie award to be given out at Gen Con 2010. I loved the newspaper articles that go along with the horror stories, which are all very well written. Each one is unique, but all are of course set in the fictional town of Pinebox, Texas. I especially enjoyed: The Hanging Tree by Filamena Young, Pie by Monica Valentinelli, and Last Exit to Pinebox by J.D. Wiker.

Pinebox is a creepy as hell town that sor

Buried Tales of Pinebox Texas- edited by Matt M. McElroy

This was an extremely well written book of short stories by twelve talented authors, comprised of stories that could be compared to the “Twilight Zone,” meets “Alfred Hitchcock,” and of course, meets “Edgar Allen Poe” in the 21st century. There are stories to appeal to everyone's “horror” taste. Even if you are not a fan of certain types of horror genre, the dark humor and the fact that all of the stories are so unique made all of the stori
