The theme of this anthology is, in my mind, utterly brilliant: stories told through the POV of the monster or villain. You’ve now secured my undivided attention! I’m a huge fan of anti-heroes and stories with villains who — if the tables were turned—are as justified in their actions as the protagonist. Those are the best “villains” to me; human ones who grapple with their decisions. And this collection delivers, even if our monsters aren’t, well, human. Best story, you ask? Definitely Chelsea Cain’s “Less of a Girl” for creeping the daylights out of me (I don’t like reading about things under my bed or that move about when I’m sleeping…) and grossing me the feck out while doing so. Why are stories about children always so much scarier?!? lol. This terrifically horrific collection gets a 4/5.
