Editors Amanda J. Spedding and Geoff Brown have once again gathered some of the best and brightest writers to be a part of their highly successful SNAFU military horror anthology series.

Somewhere along the way I've lost count on the exact number of books in this collection, but it's getting to the point where it could occupy it's own shelf on your bookcase and every one of them has been as good as the first. SNAFU: Black Ops is no exception. Get ready for thirteen tales of military

This was a pleasant surprise and a nice change of pace for me. An anthology of various style of writing and setting by a variety of different authors, there is something for everyone in this book. It starts with a zombie post apocalypse story, not dissimilar to The Walking Dead, titled "Back to Black". Well written, good pacing, decent enough story. The dialogue was a bit choppy but overall a good little short. There is a story about prisoners hooked up to some sort of virtual reality machine, ...more

The SNAFU series from Cohesion Press has been churning out military infused horror fiction for some time now. With SNAFU: Black ops the publishers have enlisted the services of some cool cats like Jonathan Maberry and Nicholas Sansbury Smith, both of whom should be well-known to you if you read a lot of this sort of stuff.

Maberry kicks things off with a long piece featuring his wise-cracking, ass-kicking super stud Joe Ledger in a cool post-apocalyptic tale. Its trademark Maberry and although

Very diverse collection of a** kicking stories

This was quite a varied collection of stories. Timewise they are set in ancient times before Christ to unspecified future dates.

And what a gamut of monsters - supernatural, man-made, mutations, zombies, vampires.

I liked all the stories (which is unusual for me) although there were a couple that, although well-written, weren't my favorites.

My favorites were the military based tales and the zombie stories, especially the last story in the book

What's not to love about this fast-paced selection of military horror/thriller stories? I've discovered some great new writers while enjoying treasures from "old" favorites like Nicholas Sansbury Smith and Jonathan Maberry. TEAM GHOST RULES!!

Hello, this was one of the best SNAFU series that I have read. The first ones were really good, the middle ones good and this one was really good. Only a couple of so-sos in the collection. Good stuff. Thanks.

Great Collection of Stories

A lot of great stories in this book. Something for H P Lovecraft fans, SiFi fans, zombie fans, mythology and apocalyptic fans.
I'm a fan of all the above so no bad stories in there.
Extinction Lost is a stand out along with a couple others, I now have some new authors books to look out for.
Thanks to all the authors and the people that put SNAFU Black Ops together.
