it was amazing

Tales From The Lake Vol 5 doesn’t disappoint!

Tales From The Lake Vol 5 delivers one riveting story after another. What scares me most? People. Perhaps tricked by devils, influenced by drugs or cursed objects, even driven mad by climate change, in the end we are the monsters. Sure, demons both real and imagined are pulling the strings but it is wives who kill husbands, fathers slaughtering their own children, and sisters murdering their siblings that makes this anthology unique.
The editor wastes no time cranking up the tension with Lucy Taylor’s “Umbilicus”, a subtle poke at every parent’s worst nightmare.
In Allison Pang’s “A Dream Most Ancient and Alone”, a young girl forms a precarious relationship with a mud maid.
“The Flutter of Silent Wings” by Gene O’Neil, delivers heartache and horror, terrifying in its truth.
“Hollow Skulls” by Samuel Marzioli is a disgusting story, so disturbing it punches you in the gut. I loved it.
A man checks into a hotel and sees someone fall from the sky in “Farewell Valencia”, a delightful story by Graig Wallwork that I must include in my list of favorites.
In all there are twenty-five wonderful stories, carefully selected to blend and compliment each other.
The most terrifying thing in the world is not a vampire or zombie, it is mankind and what we are capable of doing to each other. This collection from editor Kenneth W. Cain will eat at you for a long time. Horrifying, haunting, and unforgettable!
