Some words are born in shadows.
Some tales told only in whispers.
Under the paper thin veneer of our sanity is a world that exists. Hidden just beyond, in plain sight, waiting to consume you should you dare stray from the street-lit paths that sedate our fears.
For centuries the Black Room has stored stories of these encounters, suppressing the knowledge of the rarely seen

The problem with reviewing a charity anthology is that if you give it anything less than a positive rating, you run the risk of shorting the charity in some way. So how to tackle The Black Room Manuscripts Volume 2, the profits of which are set to be donated to Alzheimer’s Research UK? With honesty, of course. Every piece of writing must be judged on its outcome, not its intentions.

Lacking an organizing theme, the anthology encompasses a broad variety of horror motifs, from zombie apocalypse to

Great collection of short stories from all different areas of the horror genre. I bought this having only read previous work by one author, so it was a great introduction to the other contributors. One story fell a bit flat, and one I just plain didn't like - but all the rest are little gems waiting to be discovered. There's even one that made me genuinely sleep with the light on for the first time since I was a kid!

An interesting collection

An interesting collection of short stories, excellent quality of writing, great story ideas and excellent characters throughout
Will defiantly looking more closely at some of the authors from this book who I hadn’t read anything from before
There was one story I skipped as I just couldn’t get into it, it was to far fetched for me and bored me but I’m sure others out there will enjoy the very story I skipped!

So-so

Can't say this is the best or most exciting anthology I've read, despite some big names attaches to the project. Give me stories that make me shudder, that make me laugh or give me goosebumps. Not stories that feel like a chore to get through. Still, it passed the time and its for a good cause.

Some really fun stuff here

I have always liked anthologies as a way to introduce myself to new authors. It helps more when two of my favorites are also in it.

J. R. Park is a writer of Horror Fiction based in Bristol, UK.

Regularly citing Guy N Smith as an influence and inspiration, it was an interview with the said author in Darkside Magazine that was the catalyst for Park to begin his career in literature.

He writes his books as if they were video nasties beamed straight from the golden era of exploitation cinema.
