I devoured this creepy collection in just a couple of sittings. As with any anthology, some stories are stronger than others, but the good outweighs the bad here. There were plenty of excellent stories, and very few that just didn't work.

Highlights include:

Cynthia Pelayo's poetic analysis of the lure of creepy houses, "The Forever Awful House" starts off the collection.

"The Annex" by Lisa Short is one of the creepiest stories, about a haunted school building and a mean teacher.

I can recall some that I liked more than others like The Annex by Lisa Short, Keepers of the Light by Sonora Taylor, A Sleepwalker’s Hands by Corey Farrenkopf, The Lake of Poppets by Jessica Ann York, Blackjack by Kealan ...more

Nice and creepy collection

As with all anthologies some stories were better than others. In this collection there were more really good stories than mediocre ones.

A creepy collection of flash fiction

This anthology is jam-packed with scary short stories, the best of which subvert your expectations with clever twists. Even the stories where you feel you know where they’re going are well-written and ramp up the creep factor. And best of all, there’s lots of them, so there’s something for everyone!
