I am not one to read short stories but after I saw the contest on facebook, I knew I would have to read this collection of stories. There are 17 in all, and all the stories have one common theme. Stalkers. Some of the stories deal with the paranormal, science fiction, or everyday life, or maybe one you would see on a television crime drama.
They are all done from different point of views (victim or stalker), and every author has their own unique style of writing. I enjoyed all of them, Some of them even have you guessing until the very end. My favorites were Powerless by Laurie Treacy, and Freezer Burn by Jon Messenger.
This collection of stories is over 450 pages of creepiness. Anyone got a nightlight I can use tonight?
Notice: This book contains some vulgar language and adult situations.

I recieved a copy for an honest review. I have to say my favorite reads are Paranormal Romance, so this was not what I would normaly read. I have been wanting to read something different and this was an AWESOME Read! I love short stories while waiting for new books in series I have read to come out. If you are looking for some great short stories to get your goosebumps up... these will not disapoint! I have to say I was partial to the Paranormal stories.. but each one was different, told in different ways. I love reading books like this that has a collection form different authors. I will be looking up most of the authors for other books they have written!

I'm not one that usually reads short stories, but these were some amazing ones. It has been awhile since a book(s) have made me jumpy. I was looking over my shoulder every time I was outside at night while reading these. There wasn't 1 bad story in the bunch! All 17 stories were amazing. They range from paranormal stalkers to neighbors stalking neighbors.

This collection of stories has been giving me nightmares since I started reading it, which considering the topic is a good thing. All of the authors put me into their characters shoes so I felt like I was part of the story. My personal favorites were Powerless, Immortal Luck, and Blog Stalker, which really is the perfect final story for this anthology. There is a great mix of blood and gore and happy-ish endings and not so happy endings. Anyone with the slightest inclination towards horror will surely be able to find at least one story in this collection that they absolutely love. The editor did a superb job with this compilation and its arrangement.

Category /Genre: Thriller, Anthology
Received from: Cynthia Shepp (in exchange for an honest review)
Grammar/editing: A – near perfect

You know that icky feeling that makes you itch between your shoulder blades? You know someone is watching you. These seventeen creepy short-stories of stalkers just may have you paranoid. From “OMG that could really happen,” to “OMG it’s a gh-gh-gh-ghost,” to “OMG what is that!” Believe it or not, one even had a HEA!

I love short stories and this anthology of short stories is fantastic. Short stories are perfect for when you want to read, but only have few minutes, like sitting in a waiting room. There wasn’t a bad story in this book. My two favorites were POWERLESS by Laurie Treacy and BLOG STALKER by Phil Taylor.

This was a different kind of read then I usually do. But I loved it. It felt real. I know there are stories about people being stalked. But the details and the characters just made me look over my shoulder a little bit more now then before. Its kind of scary knowing that people has gone through these situations or going through them now. This is the first book that ever gave me goose bumps. Loved the book but not the fear lol. If I were you I would indeed read it. You might learn something that might save you.

Seventeen short stories about stalkers makes for a very interesting read. I enjoyed this collection very much. Each story gives you the victim and the stalkers point of view.

Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of scary stories, scary movies, or anything that makes me want to sleep with all the lights on, however, this collection of stalker based reads are simply amazing. I was asked to give an honest review, and I can, without a doubt, tell you that these authors blew me away. Every single story drew me in, kept me in a trance, and spit me out wanting more! My favorite being Autumn (The season where everything dies) by Elizabeth Collins. Crazy chick who wants her man and will do anything to get him. Gave me major goosebumps! I will be looking up each and every one of these outstanding authors to see what else they have in store. If you like great authors, amazing story lines, and chills up your spin, you will love this book! 5 Stars, two thumbs up, A+!!!

Side effects: May cause paranoia, looking over your shoulder, triple checking windows and doors and not sleeping.

Some of these stories were really spooky as crap. That dead ringer one was really freaky, and the one about the donor. I don't think they all fit the mode of stalker, but somehow ended up all in one volume. I'm not sure how to judge this as regular review format but overall entertainment value was great. A little bit of everything for the price of one. Where can you go wrong with that? I really like edgy reads and although short, these reads were very well written. I hardly ever rate an anthology above three stars!

Where do I start?!

This is not my typical story, I don't usually read this genre but it had me turning (well pressing) for the next page. It had me on the edge of my seat and the lights on. I really enjoyed this collection of stories and am looking forward to reading from all of these authors.

Stalkers: A Collection of Thriller Stories

17 stories all with a completely different twist on stalkers, from ghostly encounters to strangers watching from afar. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every story, and loved the direction some of the authors had taken their stories, as it wasn’t the typical thing that came to mind when I think stalker. It would be impossible to name a favourite, but the collection definitely ended on a hilarious high. A collection that is well worth reading.

I received an e-copy from the authors in exchange for an honest review.

I have always had a problem with reviewing anthologies, mainly because I don’t know exactly what to rate them. This anthology is a prime example of that problem I have. It has 15 stories, by 15 awesome authors, but I only loved 3 of the stories in the book.
The stories that I did love were:
Every Thorn by Rene Folsom
Powerless by Laurie Treacy
Immortal Luck by Magen McMinimy
To me, those stories had something in them that made them stand out from the traditional stalker books. There were enough twists in the stories that they kept me on my toes and left me wanting for more even after the story was over.
There were a few of the stories in the book that were just too predictable for me. Once I had started reading them, I was able to figure out what was going to happen at the end of the story.
Overall to me, this is one of those books that I think everyone will be able to find a story or two in it that they enjoyed.

Stalkers is a compilation of short stories, all based on the topic of, you guessed it, stalkers. Some are rather loosely based on the topic (Freezer Burn and Bernice), while others stick to the definition like glue (Affliction). All of them will leave you wondering if turning out the lights was such a good idea after all. Some have some interesting plot twists, such as Dead Ringer and Donations. My favorites were those that are within the paranormal genre, such as Don’t Kiss the Dead Fred and Izzy’s Assassin. Others, such as Immortal Luck, are the prequels to an entire series and give some important background story. If a touch of thrill, and a bit of scare, is what makes you happy in your reading corner, then this bunch of short stories should be in your TBR pile.

What a collection of stories, every one of these stories made me wonder if someone was watching me. It was quite spooky, being that I read at night on my kindle fire with the lights off, every little sound had me looking to see what it was. I loved it! I enjoy being scared in books when I know they are fiction but, while I'm reading sometimes I forget they are fiction. LOL Anyhoo back to the stories all were so well written and kept me right there in the moment it was awesome. A definite good read. these stories reminded me of staying up late to watch The Twilight Zone and Tales From the Crypt. I am usually a paranormal romance reader but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this collection.

Rating is 3.5.

There were quite a few of the stories that drew me and never let go. There were a couple that just would lose me, but all stories had moments that were good. This is a book I would suggest to people who tell me they are into thrillers, mystery type of novels. It's great to hear these authors were picked through Facebook entries. There is something about every author, and ways to connect with them to keep up on what they have going on. There is talent throughout and something go throughout. If you have a chance to grab this book, please do. You wouldn't be disappointed.
