's review

really liked it

I don't usually read anthologies, but I figured I'd be in safe hands with this one, as I thoroughly enjoyed one of Karl Drinkwater's other works, "Lost Solace".

I usually don't read too much horror either, as I find a lot of it derivative, and too reliant on elements like gore, instead of a story with substance. There are no such problems here, while there is a bit of gore, there certainly isn't a reliance on it to entertain, and focuses more on the psychological aspects of horror. These stories are short, but full of atmosphere, creep-factor, and inventive story-telling. Each section has something different to bring to the table, and as such, will keep you on your toes. These are great shorts that you can easily see being told around an eerie campfire.

I appreciate the fact, too, that much of what happens in these stories is left up to your imagination. Not in an unfulfilling, anti-climactic way, but in a way that lets your imagination run a little wild with it.

I definitely recommend this one to all you horror fans!
