Overall, I loved the anthology and found it unique- some really terrifying and well written stories shine through in the anthology, including Gloom by Rick Restucci which is about shadows coming to life and killing anyone who steps into a shadow, and Garbage Day by Dane Hatchell which is a dystopian future novel with an old sci-fi feel that could've starred Charlton Heston in a haunting story about the near future lack of care we have for people. I also loved Terror in the Deep by Matthew Hollis Damon, which gave us the zombie apocalypse from the perspective of a group of scientists trapped at sea on an oil rig overrun with zombies, and Facing Death by Marie Lanza which was a very tight entry into zombie lore on land with a solid and terrifying take on a family escaping the endless horde. Rookie Burwick also delivered with a very creepy and haunting tale that defies description, and I loved several other stories in this book which I can't name offhand because the table of contents doesn't show the authors names! That poor production value in the ebook I'm referencing now is NOT a factor in the hardcopy, but remains a glaring eyesore!
The only story that really stood out as amateurish schlock was The Beggar by Titan Frey-- I couldn't even comprehend how such a story made it into this book. But 18 tales of gruesome horror, and one bad story, leaves this anthology pretty high on my list of very well done horror anthologies. I would've given it five stars if not for a bit of slipshot production values which left me scratching my head and wondering why the editor hadn't gone the full distance. There were at least five more stories I loved here, and several more which were passable and had potential. Road Closed and The Ways in Which We Love were both very well written stories that had so much potential and disappointed in the very end-- but I still enjoyed the ride. Thankfully I read this anthology out of order or else I would question the reason the book opened on those two.
Final analysis as a big fan of horror is that I would recommend this anthology to everyone who wants to be taken on a dark and creepy trip into many dark places in the minds of many different authors! Not perfect, but definitely a noble shot into the abyss of humanity!
All of the stories in this book were really good, though, I kind of didn't like the one story (well, turned into two) of the character that was described as "the tall dark man with the scar". The stories were good, but I was kind of thrown off by having to read the description of him almost every time he was talked about, as opposed to their just giving him a name. I get what they were going for,a moving man of mystery, but, the reading of the description more than once is just offputting.
That one little thing aside though,co.plate aces across the board for this book! I greatly recommend it!
