From the darkness of the abyss to the subtle shift of shadows dwell creatures that prey on us all.
Be they straight-up monsters or nightmares behind a human mask, they track us and they kill us.
Sometimes, they play with their food, where death would be a kindness. But there is hope.
There are those who search out the monsters, those who hunt the hunters.
These are their s

Admittedly, I'm a bit of a pessimist. I see an anthology series that's in it's fifth incarnation and I fully expect it not to be as good as its predecessors. I'm overjoyed to say that is not the case with the SNAFU series from Cohesion Press. It's hard to believe that a little over eighteen months ago the very first SNAFU anthology saw the light of day.

Here's what I said about the first book...

"My expectations were not that high for this anthology. Although, I love horror, in all it's many forms

I want to get something out of the way here from the get go. I came late to the SNAFU party.

Terrible, I know. Stupid even.

How could I claim to be worth my salt as a reader when I had missed out on what is arguably the premier military horror series in the world today?

But before you incite a mob and march on my house hear me out. I've been catching up... and I'm here now at the party... front and centre. And fuck me... it is some party!

Military-science fiction is never going to die. Why? Because everyone likes risk and there's nothing higher-stakes than combat. It's also inherently fun to imagine conflict against cyborgs, zombies, aliens, demons, and all manner of creatures. There's a juvenile part of every science fiction and fantasy fan which loves to imagine how their favorite action heroes, militaries, or units would do against the creatures from another favorite work. SNAFU, military parlance for a chaotic mess, is an an ...more

The tales in this dark collection take us on a tour of the world. Indeed, the editors’ note in the inside pages tells of their decision to retain the grammar of each author’s home country, in itself a heads-up to the international richness of this collection. There is a story of a Viking rune witch, one in which vampires re-infest modern London, demons are summoned in occupied France, while ghouls, reavers, and other monsters prey on innocents in Vietnam, Russia, Florida, and ancient Rome.

WOW! This is, for me, the best SNAFU to date. It's not often I read an anthology and get something out of every single story. But here, I did. Admittedly, most of the stories tread a very similar path where a group of soldiers go looking for some kind of beast/demon/monster....but that doesn't matter, because each story is unique, exciting, action-packed and incredibly satisfying. I thought things couldn't get and better after the opening two stories. In particular Apex Predator. But, they did. ...more

SNAFU has been one of those independent press horror anthologies that I have really taken a liking to. Some of the premises and lore in the stories are very interesting, the plot lines are racy and the action is kick-ass. The theme in Hunters is around individuals or groups that hunt monsters and the action that develops from this conflict. Here are the stories :

Apex Predator by N.X. Sharps & Tim Marquitz – Genetically modified human beings taking on a rogue creature : Part 1. This was one of

The first half of the book had average stories, and quality improved in the second half.

A mixed bag of fantasy, Sci-Fi and modern / contemporary warfare, some of the ideas were cool and properly executed, some were cool but not properly executed, and some were just bad.

I'll take a break before reading any more SNAFU collections.

A Monstrously Good Time!

This is easily one of the best in the SNAFU series I've ever read and enjoyed. I'd be one of the first in line to watch any of these tales on the big screen, binge watch a series of these episodes on a streaming service, or buy the season episodes on DVD. This series beats anything currently playing on both the big and small screen.

Some good stories. Worth a look for fans of the SNAFU anthologies

This was an overall enjoyable collection of stories and a good addition to the SNAFU anthology series. I look forward to more short stories soon.

Love this series.

Brilliantly covering different time periods and a variety of worlds/genres/situations, etc, this excellent series continues to please. On a personal.note, it was a real treat to see Jonathan Crowley in action in a different time setting!

Good compilation of military horror/sci if

Overall pretty good. No bad or boring stories. Secret War was great and would love a full novelization of that story.

Another brilliant installment of the SNAFU series. Yes I am reading them out of order (This is book 5) but so far each one that is an enjoyable journey into the territory of terrifying, heart-pounding military-themed terrors. Once again, James A. Moore steals the show with his brilliant anti-hero James Crowley but among a collection of really good tales, there is also another author who I was quite impressed with. Patrick Freivald's tale "Bonked," really captured my imagination with its augmente ...more

I'm a huge fan of the SNAFU series...

...which is why this one is such a big disappointment. Many of the stories rate 5 stars in their own, but far too many are complete duds. This is atypical for a series where most of the stories are so good that you find yourself hoping that they will one day appear as fully fleshed out novels.

All that being said, if you can get it on KU, by all managed it as there are a few 5 star gems in there.

Guardedly recommended.

Hello, this is a fine addition to the SNAFU series. Actually, it is one of the best. Great stories. Some you might recognize certain characters or elements. Damn fine stuff. Thanks.

Once again SNAFU delivers. This is one of the few anthologies on here that never lets me down. 5 stars.
