After reading countless horror anthologies for the course of my entire life it's refreshing to see a sole woman's name under the title. The stories themselves were extremely mixed even though they share many common threads. I enjoyed aspects of almost every one of them but often found myself wishing for more in one way or another. Thirsty Creatures was a great opener but The One Who Answers The Door feels like a familiar beginning to unfinished story. For a moment I thought she might give us an all female version of The Halloween Tree but all we got was The Halloween Knock. Lady of the Flies for example had a completely amazing set up but the ending left me feeling abandoned. The same thing could be said for a few of these tales which I found often puttered out after a loud start. This in itself isn't necessarily a bad thing as I literally want more from this author than she's giving us. Give us more, Christa! Red Room & This Our Angry Train were my favorites of the bunch. 3 1/2 stars if I could.
