From the earliest depictions of winged goddesses to the delicate, paperwinged fairies of the Victorians, from valiant Valkyries to cliff-dwelling harpies, from record-setting pilots to fearless astronauts, women have long since claimed their place in the skies, among the clouds and beyond.

4.5 stars!!
I want to thank Ross over at Word Horde for being so incredibly kind to me over the years and sending me books to read and review. Definitely one of my favorite indie publishers out there.
Fright Into Flight is one of my favorite anthologies now and I'll forever recommend it for several reasons.
Reason #1. I think Amber Fallon did an amazing job curating this collection. If someone asked me, I could probably point to the stories that I think inspired this theme--most likely the Damien A

So often I hear readers complain about a lack of female authors writing in the horror genre. However, those assumptions are simply not true. This anthology goes to show that the horror genre is alive and well with so many fantastic female voices!

I absolutely love the backstory behind the creation of this collection. Last year, when Stephen King edited an all-male horror anthology, Amber Fallen responded by curating this anthology featuring a diverse lineup of all-female authors.

Fright Into Flight was such a great collection. These are all stories specifically by women related to flight in some way. I was introduced to quite a few authors I hadn't read before, and I can't wait to check out more of their work.

With the exception of one, I absolutely loved every story in here. The one story I didn't care for definitely wasn't bad; I just didn't love it. So many of them were 5⭐, though. My top favorites were The Floating Girls: A Documentary by Damien Angelica Walters, I D

My huge thanks to WordHorde for sending me a copy of this one to read and review.

This is an important collection, and a hugely successful one in my opinion. I have already been sharing my love for it and will definitely be recommending it to people who want a good horror anthology, are interested in trying out some new authors they might not have heard of, or just can't get enough of the ladies of horror fiction!

One of the main reasons I was itching to get my hands on this book is because of the

”Maybe, somewhere deep down in our reptilian brains, we know that the sky doesn’t belong to us humans. We might borrow it sometimes, poke our shiny sky scrapers and our pretty parachutes into its blue vastness, but we will never truly own it.”

We didn’t ask, but Fallon definitely delivered. Anthologies for me are rarely a 5 star read because there must be a dud or 2 in there but this is a solid collection of stories that did not disappoint. From girls floating off into space to space witches to

This anthology is a great curation of some of the greatest living writers in the weird fiction/horror genre. Favorites include Nadia Bulkin's "And then She Was Bad," along with stories from Gemma Files, Izzy Lee, and many others.

This collection is OK. I am not a fan of horror, and this collection did not change my mind about that. None of the stories seemed particularly horrifying. However, three of the stories stick in my mind.

"The Floating Girls: A Documentary," by Damien Angelica Walters.
This story is a jewel with surprising depth. The anguish of the narrator is more powerful for being understated. There is almost no plot, but theme and atmosphere carry the story.

"Consent," by Nancy Baker

Interesting collection of short stories from female writers. Many of them were horror or darkly tinted sci-fi/fantasy, each related somehow to the concept of flight. I enjoyed the mix of styles and genres, a little different from the usual themed anthology.

My favourite stories were:

Wilderness by Letitica Trent - loved the creepiness of this one, reminded me of Shirley Jackson or Richard Matheson

The Silk Angel by Christine Morgan - a hopeful fantasy set in World War One, wonderful characters, the

Most short story collections are inconsistent and this one is no exception. But the unique theme, all-female authors, and a couple great stories make this book worthwhile. Especially the supernatural gangster tale by Gemma Files called Every Angel. And Nadia Bulkin is always amazing.
