Pretty much everything I said at the start of my review of Kolchak: The Night Stalker Chronicles applies here - this is fan fiction, essentially, and should aspire at best to be enjoyable episodes of the TV show long after the fact. Also, as I said previously, the short story format is perhaps not the best for attempts to replicate the KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER episode formula in all its plot beats (most writers here give us the usual confrontation with "long suffering editor" Tony Vincenzo, and the expected de ...more

It's going to be hard for me not to give a Kolchak anthology five stars. I like the character so much that unless the stories are just absolutely terrible I'll still enjoy it. Even if SOME of the stories are absolutely terrible I'll enjoy it, but thankfully there was nothing bad in this volume.

It's amazing that such a short lived tv series spawned such a great and long lasting following. Kolchak is truly an amazing character. In this one we see him dealing with the usual unearthly th

The indomitable and incorrigible Carl Kolchak, genre television's first paranormal investigator, returns in seventeen stories of the weird and the bizarre.

When it was first printed, some seven or eight years ago, the anthology Kolchak: The Night Stalker Casebook served two purposes. The first, and most important, of the two purposes was to be an affectionate memorial to the late Darren McGavin, the journeyman actor that created Kolchak's lovably scruffy and comically unvarnished pers

Carl Kolchak fans wanted more of the intrepid reporter and investigator of the paranormal. He is back in a second collection of stories penned by different authors. In truth, there is some uneven efforts here. This was not as good as the first collection but it is an excellent reading for Kolchak fans. My favorite stories were: The Day of Her Return, Digger, And, Brief Encounter and Cancellation.

Anthologies are usually a mixed bag, but this one had more clunkers than usual, and a few stories so badly written I couldn't believe that they made the cut. A couple started off well, but quickly went sour. However, Strange Events at Vishnu Springs was excellent, and The Day of Her Return, Digger, and Call Me Sam were very, very good. The rest...oh, dear.
