Shelves: horror, short-fiction
The best reason for buying Bleed, the emotionally moving anthology of horror fiction edited by Lori Michelle, is that the proceeds from the sale of the book goes to the National Children’s Cancer Society. The second best reason for buying it is that it is one of the best horror anthology I have read in a long time.

Bleed is a collection of 47 short works by known and lesser known authors in the horror genre. Most of the works are short fiction but there are about a half dozen essays and a few poe

Reading Bleed left me terrified and moved more than I should admit. The book is a collection of short stories and poems collected to fight children's cancer. It is a book of horror. And hope.

The tome begins with True Horror an essay by Lori Michelle describing what she went through when her son was diagnosed with cancer. It is a moving essay and if it were all there were in the book, I'd have thought my money well spent. But Bleed is filled with words by some the best new and rising stars in hor

BLEED is one of the best anthologies of collected works I've read this year and maybe ever. The bonus being that it is for such a good cause. The introduction is very heartfelt and hopeful. There are so many great pieces it's very difficult to pick and choose favorites, but the first story, "With Paper Armour and Wooden Sword" is very well done, and was a bit of tear jerker for me. "Sludge" is another favorite, "Ears," "Dance of the Blue Lady," "King Rat," "All the Sludge," "Never Enough" (which ...more

From the very start of this anthology, we are introduced to a form of horror that is personal, a real horror that threatens the lives of innocent children. These horror stories require the courageous; not only must we be brave to read them, but we must also witness the bravery that people must discover within themselves to overcome a horror that may not go away. We have stories that act as extended metaphors, and stories that remind us why we bought this book in the first place. Since this is a ...more

How do you feel about cancer? Have you ever really thought about it? Have you, God forbid, had to experience it? If someone asked you to illustrate it or describe it--if someone asked you to put a face on it--what would cancer look like?
Pick up a copy of Bleed; a scary-as-hell charity anthology benefiting kids with cancer, and you'll get a vivid picture of just how terrifying it can be.
The contributing authors paint a sobering picture of the horror of the disease--perhaps not in the realism of t

It’s hard to deny the disease for which this anthology was conceived, as well as the star power they’ve acquired work from; names like Bentley Little, Mort Castle, Gene O’Neil, Jason V. Brock and Tim Waggoner to name a handful. But don’t think they are the only ones bringing anything to the table. They are joined by a host of up and coming authors whose stories, essays, and poetry are offered to benefit children with cancer. The mood is set early by editor, Lori Michelle, as she details her own ...more
