Who says you can't laugh at horror? We've all heard of being scared silly, so obviously there's room between slashings, hauntings, and summonings for a good knee-slapper. And that is exactly were this book of dark-minded but lighthearted short fiction comes in.

If you've ever giggled at guts, chuckled at cannibals, or laughed at severed limbs, then this collection of

I devoured this in less than 24 hours!

A problem I have with anthologies is that a lot of them have a few good stories and then you want to skip through everything else. NOT in this one!

This was made for those of us who laugh during horror movies and it's not full of cheesy (gooflumps) stories. Questionable pistachio salesman, how to care for a demon baby, a typical vegan, there's even aliens!

I'm following all of these authors and waiting for more.

I really dig this cover, though I've no idea why it's not showing up at Goodreads. Check it out via Amazon:

Horror + comedy! Two great tastes that taste great together! I had a lot of fun with this anthology and discovered a few new writers.

I was sent a copy of this book for review. And I will write a proper review soon! Just know that this anthology is worth seeking out - especially if you’re partial to your horror with a side of funny!

Laughing at Shadows edited by Brett Reistroffer is such a great collection of tales that mix horror and dark humor perfectly. From the silly to the downright horrific, this book has quite the range!

This book comes out on March 3, 2020. It’s one you will definitely want to keep an eye out for!

Full disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book by the editor in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my rating in any way.

If you’ve been following me for a bit, you probably already know
