I love horror anthologies! Short stories can pack such a creepy scary punch.

All these stories have a Book Of Revelations theme and it was interesting to see all the different imaginings of the apocalypse by various authors.
Some are really creative, some are more concentrated on shock value and some are straight up funny.

My review of And Hell Followed: An Anthology can be found at High Fever Books.

If you believe the statistics, The Bible is allegedly the most widely read book in the world. Having sold millions upon millions and millions of copies and placed in thousands upon thousands of hotel room nightstands, it is easily one of the most popular, most published, and most purchased works of epic horror fantasy ever written. Even people who claim they don’t read horror presumably claim to have at least read The

Apocalypse Variety

This anthology contains a wide variety of how the world will end & what it will be like afterwards. Most were good. Behind blue eyes was the scariest and Apocalypse Meh was probably my favorite. But each story was original and creative. However, this will probably be the last time I read a collection about the end of the world. I think too much to have that on my mind!

I really wanted to love this anthology. It's biblical apocalyptic stories so the theme is the same across the board. However, there was just too much of the same kind of things throughout each story - which is fine amongst themselves but when reading back to back to back, it got to be a little bit oversaturated. Seems when hell comes to earth, it's gruesome, a lot of cussing, a lot of strange sex and private parts grabbing and heavy metal. I'm not opposed to ANY of this - usually the stranger, g ...more

Anthologies can be mixed bags. You sometimes get the good, the bad, and the dreadful. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of most of this book. Stories stayed on theme and were a delight to read. I REALLY enjoyed this book.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on an advance copy of what will be imo the most talked about Anthology of 2019. 15 of the 16 stories in this book would normally be the best story in most Anthologies only one what I consider to be an average story. If this is the Future of Death’s Head Press they will be the go Too publisher in the Horror genre.
From what would be the normal the stories in this volume......, to the last word of Jeff Strand’s Outpouring this book grabs you by the balls and does

Award Winner, this one is

So, I picked this up on a lark when it was first released and tossed (who am I kidding, gently placed) on my TBR pile forever. My bad. Loved all the stories and the different ways they approached the subject matter. Highly recommend.

AND HELL FOLLOWED is the first book from the new publisher Death's Head Press. They have pulled together an amazing group of authors who have all written short stories based on events from the Book of Revelations. Stories range from the first horn blast and the Horsemen to the final day and everything in-between. It can be read as a sort of primer as what and what not to do to survive during the Apocalypse.

Let's take a look at what's inside.....

Interesting collection

An interesting read for doomsday apocalypse fans. The stories were all different, ranging from the macabre to unexpectedly funny. I intend to read more books from these publishers.

Decent anthology about reimagined biblical apocalypse stories. Half of the stories were good. The rest were kind of bland for me. Highlights include stories by Sam West, Patrick Harrison, John Wayne Communale, Jeff Strand, and my personal favorite was Godless World by The Sisters of Slaughter. If biblical apocalyptic stories are your thing I recommend giving this one a shot.

Wow, this was an interesting, fantastic anthology of stories. The type to be read over and over again.
From the first page, I was drawn in, and didn't stop until the end. Well worth the time, and five stars.

I read this book with some other members of the Splatterclub on Facebook. This is some thoughts I posted on the stories as I read them.

Sam West's The Whore of Babylon was a nice start to the anthology.

Behind Blue Eyes by Chris Miller was a pretty good story, lots of nice imagery. That was the first thing I've read by him, I would read some more.

Censered by Christine Morgan was more like my jam. A foul mouthed angel, kinda made me think of something Ed Lee would do!

First thought? Woah, this is going to be a gruesome collection!

Then I stopped thinking because I was completely enthralled by the end of the first story! When I discovered that each tale was connected in that it was another perspective of the same event, or the aftermath, I was overjoyed! You see, I don’t particularly like anthologies. I don’t mind novellas, but short stories generally leave me wanting. This was NOT the case for And Hell Followed. Because each story seemed to tie in together, I

Overall okay. Some of it was just plain ridiculous and seemed an excuse to write a bunch of mayhem but there were a couple of good ones. A lot of the same stuff...

Here per story:

The Whore of Babylon by Sam West
3 star. Interesting enough. Very short so not much to it. Makes ya cringe if ya think about it too much...

Behind Blue Eyes by Chris Miller
2 star. There really wasn't much to this. Just a bunch of chaos, destruction, gore and guilt. Really did not like the reason for Jack's guilt. I get it

The was a really good set of Revelations based apocalyptic shorts. I enjoyed the fact that the stories were all based around the same concept, with drastically different takes on it. As with most anthologies, there were a few stories in here that i couldn't get into and a few I found downright corny. However, there were some incredibly good stories here as well. The first two stories right off are two of my favorites, The Whore of Babylon by Sam West and Chris Miller's Behind Blue Eyes were both ...more

Pretty unremarkable compilation of stories. I'd skip all but Strand's.

But a note on the introduction which says Revelation is a book of fantasy. Anyone who has studied the Bible seriously, as well as the historical context at this time, can clearly see that Revelation was a book written to 1st Century churches to remind them that no matter how big and powerful the Roman Empire seemed it would wither and fade. But God's Kingdom is eternal. The author, most likely John Eliazar (Jesus' friend Laza

Pretty strong collection

I'm usually a little leery of anthologies I find on Kindle Unlimited because they're mostly scraped from Reddit or just terrible. That does not seem to be the case here, however, as both the selection and the intro from the editor explaining why he collected these were very strong. Anyone scarred by a religious upbringing that threatened hellfire when you were bad or the imminent apocalypse if you were good will find this enjoyable. There is one story that's pretentious t

I read incredibly slow, but once I finally finished this collection, I was awestruck at the true audacity of it all. Too many standout stories to name, but there are plenty in this anthology that take the end of the world theme and run with it in unique and often grotesquely humorous ways. This book couldn't be for everyone, but they certainly aren't trying to be, filling its niche well with fun tales that would be perfect to reread upon Halloween or at the next camp fire. Highly recommend for t ...more

What can I say truthfully, but Meh, as one of the titles says. Don’t get me wrong, there were a few stories that I really enjoyed, but others, I didnt care for because the sacred was no longer held as sacred. I was totally excited for this since it was dealing with the Biblical foretelling of the apocalypse. As a believer, I always love to read anything in the horror realm dealing in my beliefs. However, the majority of the anthology missed the mark for me.

NAIL BITING GREAT ANTHOLOGY

What a gathering of Horror Authors! The Apocalyptic Tales, shoot, they're all good on each authors. All the stories captivated me, I was glued and read this book in one sitting! I was elated to spend time on a refreshing book. I recommend it to all, its nail biting good! One-click now, you'll be glad you did.

We need more Biblical-themed horror collections like this

Overall, an entertaining read. Even the couple of stories whose writing was less strong had good enough premises to see them through. I'm glad I took a chance on this; not only for some good storytelling, but to find new writers to explore.

Super fun creepy apocalyptic horror

Great variety of types of stories about how the apocalypse might go down. Some funny, some crude and disgusting, some realistic and creepy. All a good read

I wanted to like this anthology but I got about 17% of the way in and stopped. The first three stories did not grab me at all so I put it aside.

Maybe I'll pick it up again and check out the rest of them later.

This anthology, published by Death's Head Press, features stories inspired by the Apocalypse described in the Book of Revelation. Like the typical horror collection, a couple of the stories were great, some were good, and several were so-so. The collection also contains one of the worse short stories that I've ever read. One standout was "Horse" by splatterpunk luminary Wrath James White, about a drug called horse that immediately enrages users and escalates their worst prejudices. "Outpouring" ...more

Not so good.

Some of the stories were ok and entertaining, but for the most part were weak. I hope a #2 book will be more engaging.
