This was such a fun anthology with awesome horror and more! I absolutely loved Theresa Braun’s story so much, and I’ve loved everything she’s written so far! Her story was a true page turner! Never a disappointment! Calvin Demmer has another hit on his hands and I was sucked into his story right away! This anthology had intriguing writing and full of awesomeness!
The Double Barrel series features two stories by each author, and these collected volumes put them all together in one handy paperback. Volume 3 features 6 authors, most of whom I've read before.

From Christine Morgan, (whose novel WHITE DEATH I've previously read and enjoyed), we have EYE SEE YOU, and it knocked my socks off. What a great way to kick off a collection!

From Robert Essig, (an author I have not had the pleasure of reading prior to this), we have FROM UNCLEAN SPELLS. I always have e

An All-Star lineup of Horror Oddities.

The Double Barrel series has a really cool premise in the fact that you get 2 stories from 6 different authors. I think that is important. I think it is extremely nice to get 2 different stories, especially if these authors are new to you. That way if one of the stories doesn't hit you right, there is a 2nd one coming right up. I just think it's a nice concept for an anthology and one I hadn't really experienced before. The stories are short in this

Six talented purveyors of terror have teamed up to give even the bravest heart a little stutter or two. Prepare to shiver, feel fingers crawling up your spine and sometimes, grateful not to have just eaten. Christine Morgan, Mark Matthews, Theresa Braun, Calvin Demmer, Glenn Rolfe, and Robert Essig each hand out a double portion of what they do best, create the unimaginable and bring it life in twelve short stories that need no added fluff to fatten their tales.

It’s no secret that many of these

Pint Bottle Press returns with the third installment of their gruesome double feature collection and for this one, they’ve collected some outstanding authors. Featuring Christine Morgan, Robert Essig. Mark Matthews, Theresa Braun, Calvin Demmer and Glenn Rolfe this is one guaranteed to have an author with a story you must read.

DOUBLE BARREL HORROR VOL 3 is all about, um, horror! This anthology features two horror shorts per author, which I liked. Why? It showcases the talented writers' ability to write two separate, unrelated, disjointed, have-nothing-to-do-with-each-other stories. And it works! A great concept with awesome stories and excellent I-didn't-see-it-coming endings.

Kudos to all the authors who collaborated in DOUBLE BARREL HORROR VOL 3!

Volume three serves as my introduction to the unique way this series runs. How many times have you passed judgment on an author based on a story you read in an anthology? If you could see me, you might note that I’m typing with one hand because the other is raised. Selecting six authors and presenting two stories from each works nicely on a few levels. First, the obvious. If you read a story by an author that doesn’t resonate, you get to try something else to see whether it was that author’s voi ...more

(review request submitted by Theresa Braun, contributing author, for an honest critique)

There are twelve stories in this gory anthology. I am going to share my favorite story from each author.

I had no idea so many phrases had the word “eye” in it. Christine Morgan’s Eye See You discussed mentioned several.

*keeping an eye on you
*look with your eyes, not your hands
*eye spy with my little eye
*eyes in the back of your head
*eat with your eyes first

Just wow, talk about a powerhouse line up of horror writers here! To be honest, I picked this book of stories up solely based on my readership to Theresa Braun. I’ve been following her short stories ever since I read Dead Over Heels as a part of its release tour back in 2018. Ever since then I’ve been completely hooked on her stuff. I was really excited to see her paired up with so many other writers, as it's been a while since I picked up a really scary read, and even longer since I found new a ...more

I love the concept behind the double barrel horror series—six authors contribute two stories each. A cool book cover illustration accompanies each duet. I was impressed by the author line up and the way every set nicely showcases the storytelling talents of each contributor.

I enjoyed each story, but wanted to focus my review on my favorite story in each pair.

“Eye See You” by Christine Morgan features a young girl who internalizes the trauma she experienced on a theme park ride. The narrator’s

The cover art and images throughout Double Barrel anthology are just as brilliant and well placed as each story. They have a nostalgic B-movie vibe and are matched with each pair of stories.

Each of the contributory authors, has two stories to offer. Double the stab in the brain and the punch in the gut.

‘Eye See You’ and ‘Sharp Obsidian’ by Christine Morgan

The first is a quirky and gory psychological tale of an all seeing evil eye. The second is a blood-soaked tribal tale of a village battling an

I’m currently reading this book and after reading the first two stories and how much I wrote about it. I feel like I should share each authors section separately. This will all be combined for goodreads but with Instagram you don’t get enough room to talk about all of this. So here we are. 😆

This includes 2 stories from 6 writers that offer creepy, horrible, nerve racking entertainment. With Christine Morgan, Robert Essig, Mark Matthews, Theresa Braun, Calvin Demmer and Glenn Rolfe you can’t go wrong!

Goodwin by Mark Matthews tore me apart! Calvin Demmer’s Highway Hunger brings us tentacles and his Motel Madness takes you to a special place in Hell! Theresa Braun’s Stillborn gives us an alien life form, and with Homecoming you get the sense of a long held tradition of returning to a

The aim of the authors is true, and they hit their targets with great impact. I was jolted by these stories. They have twists and turns. Each of these writers have credits that stand out on their own. Together, this anthology provides a great highlight of their talents. They touch on horror themes that are well known, but with their own spark of insight.

This was a first for me; an anthology where each writer contributes two stories. What a great idea! I’ve read many anthologies where perhaps one story didn’t really do it for me, or another was properly wow-mazing, and that was all I had to judge an author on.

But here, they all have two chances to impress. And on the whole, they didn’t need to try twice, although I’m glad to have had double the entertainment from them all.

Christine Morgan kicks things off with Eye See You, in which paranoia is t

While I haven’t read any of the previous two volumes of Double Barrel Horror anthologies, Volume 3 is structured by its authors and their two stories each. For each of the author, it shows off their writing style and sometimes, even a little correlation in detail from one story to the next. Each of these stories are different in their premise and also have their own uniqueness and creativity. Its fairly imaginative and each one has their own twist.

Looking for a short spooky adventure? Then look no further, this anthology is packed full of original and strange tales to delight all you horror fans out there.

First thing though, I loved the cover of this book. Brian Burks did an awesome job creating that B movie horror flick feel.

I don't want to go into every story, so I will highlight a few that stood out to me.

Eye See You by Christine Morgan, was one story that grabbed me above all the rest. Morgan sparked my psyche as a reader and I fell u

A great collection of stories from authors to really watch. In particular 'Wicked Smart Carnie' by Mark Matthews had my stomach turning and is still stuck in my mind. As well as 'Fuel for the King of Death' by Robert Essig, which is stomach churning for a much different reason.

In this collection you'll get violence and gore, bitter endings, unimaginable monsters, and from every writer, some damn good writing.

Exactly 2/3 of the authors in this collection brought at least something to the table. The other two added nothing. Worth it if you find it used, not really worth the cover price
