The Trees Have Eyes: Horror Stories From The Forest
Stepping into the forest, you're surrounded by the natural grandeur of a world which has no need of you. The silence is so heavy that you can hear your blood thundering through your veins. The stir of dry leaves in the darkness could be your friend finding his way back, but it...more
An eclectic mix of short stories of the weird, eerie and, at times, horrifying persuasion, all with a theme of forests/nature. As is common with such a collection it was a little uneven in quality and, even as a connoisseur of short stories, I found the book too long and wieldy. It could quite easily be divided into two volumes making it a far easier readable anthology.
There were SO many stories but my favourite's were:
World's Oldest Tree
Crosses In The Field
Like with all anthologies there will always be stronger stories and weak stories. I found myself really kind of wondering when I was going to get to the end of the book at one point because a lot of the stories just seemed to drag on even though they were fairly short. The overall theme of the book was stories dealing with the woods or the unknown. The forest, like the ocean, has always held a fascination wi ...more

If someone screams in the forest and no one is around, will they regret ever making a sound?

My one real complaint is how poor the editing is. Typos and formatting errors abound, and at points random words are used that make no sense. (My guess is the original work was written on a phone and autocorrect changed words, but these sorts of things should have been caught as the co ...more
Unfortunately, I read this entire book hoping for a really good juicy horror story that would keep me awake at night, hiding under the covers, afraid to turn off the light, afraid to let any of my append-
ages hang off the bed for fear of some unknown monster grabbing them, and hoping for the story that would stick with me and I might want to retell later. Sadly, I found none of these., just mediocre stories mostly about people camping or getting scared or attacked. ...more
A generous collection of horror stories. Some stories could pass for psychological thrillers. The storylines were unique and enjoyable. Incorporating mythology, the supernatural and plain old insanity. I recommend this book to horror fans looking for something different with a little twist to it. Available on kindle unlimited, I hope they have more books like this one.
None of these stories are too complicated or cruel and it was great fun reading for an hour or two (or maybe a little more) before sleeping.
Absolutely enjoyable stories starting with camp stories similar to ones I remember frightening my younger brothers with. Don't miss this fun collection! ...more
Some of the stories: Scarecrow; Don't Stop on Route 33; The Wall in Grandpa's Backyard; Camp Credence; The Last Bus; The Devil's Cauldron; Seeker and Lucie & Snaggletooth, this reader found especially disturbing. Happy reading. Annemarie ...more
Most of these pieces were little vignettes, like stories told over a campfire, rather than complete stories. That means they were good for dipping into whenever you needed to read something undemanding. Most of the horror is on the level of "and she got out and there was a HOOK handing from her door handle!!!!!!11!!1!" variety. But that's not necessarily bad. Some are genuinely creepy.
