Shelves: 2019, horror
Room 733 was really good, the others were ... not. I thought these were supposed to be horror stories? Most of them are just tragic tales of messed up towns or families, or parodies of horror stories. At least I think they must be parodies, because they're so over the top and ridiculous. Not scary or chilling, that's for sure. Not a fan of the tropes, and the writing is just ok. Recommend Room 733, and I think it's available online for free. Leave the rest if you're a fan of classic horror or ...more

C.K. Walker is an absolute horror debut success. I am personally offended that Hollywood makes dribble into movies but overlooks talent like this. If you're a horror fiction fan: I promise you will like C.K. Walker. Horror is largely overdone as a genre, so its refreshing to see a new TAKE on popular themes and tropes. I guarantee theres more than one story in each book that will make you take a step back and say, "Well that was messed up and not at all what I expected."

As this is anthology

This was my favorite of the "cold, thin air" volumes. There were a couple of the stories here that stuck with me a bit and my mind kept coming back to. A very disturbing drive through an Arizona canyon, creepy dolls are always a delight, and I'd never dreamed that the scariest monster ever could be so simple a toddler could draw it. There were a few typos here and there, more like spellcheck errors, but they were minor and didn't distract from the storytelling at all.

I initially bought this book to have a copy of one of my favorite Creepypasta series, Borrasca. However I was surprised when I read some of the other short stories. They were not as long, and with less detail the stories weren’t quite as good, but still fun reads! A great book for people who can only read for short periods at a time.

Pretty good, but not as good as 1.

Still good. I liked the first better. The best stories were borrasca, room 733, and blue ridge. I'd heard two of them on the no sleep podcast already. Most of the rest bordered on the absurd. Still creepy, though!

Was introduced to this author by the NoSleep Podcast. Borrasca is both the saddest and scariest story ever. Love the way the endings screw around with assumptions.

Please see the first volume for my review But the short version is that she's awesome. Her writing is awesome. Read it.

O vol. 2 dessa coletânea apresenta um dos melhores contos da autora, Borrasca. Uma história assustadora e impactante.

Great, but only having the first two parts of Borascca hurts it.

I'm a big fan of C.K. Walker, and I was excited to pick up "cold, thin air: Volume 2." As I've said before, Walker's strengths lie in her ability to create a sufficiently spooky atmosphere for her stories. She does a phenomenal job of capturing desolation and hopelessness.

My favorites:

"Blue Ridge" -- an alternate take on Walker's "Paradise Pine"

"Dollhouse" -- a journalist looking for the paranormal returns to her hometown and finds out just why it's deserted.

"Copper Canyon" -- a truly

Who knew that my new genre of interest would be horror fiction? Ever since I started listening to the NoSleep Podcast, I've been loving these kind of short stories. There's something so creative about being able spook listeners/readers without all the special effects that usually horror movies consist of (especially not a fan of cheap jump scares). Of course, the stories in this book weren't perfect (though, I confess I mostly bought it for Borrasca). There also were a couple of noticeable ...more

This is the volume that contains Borrasca, which is one of the best short stories I have read in a while.

Suspenseful and her stories tend to end in ways I do not expect. Solid writer, looking forward to more.
