Dreams of a Ragged Doll by Cate Gardner stood out as an absolute gem. It is no secret that she is one of my favorite writers, and stories like this one are why. Her story is wonderfully original and quite disturbing
Give It a Name by Gary McMahon is the second reason why I decided to read this anthology. His story is dark, haunting, and bleak, in other words, quintessential McMahon. Fans of his will not be disappointed, and if you have never read anything by him, now is the time to start.
The Doll Tree by Amelia Mangan was another favorite of mine. This is the first story I have read by her, but I plan on reading some others based on this. Even though dolls terrify me, I couldn't help being captivated by the amazing and disturbing imagery in this story.
Overall this was a good disturbing read, and I recommend grabbing a copy.
My favorite stories were:
Jeff Strand's "Inside the Boxes". The ten in one box of fun!
Emily Skaftun's "Down in the Woods Today". Watch out for those teddy bears.
Kate Jonez-"Poor Me and Ted". Man aboard a train with bad thoughts.
Joe McKinney's "A Little Crimson Stain". Totally freaky!
Cate Gardner's "Dreams of a Ragged Doll". I love creepy doll stories.
Lisa Morton's "When Harry Killed Sally". This story ROCKED!
Jeremy Shipp's "Googly". Watch out for the horns.
Dorian Dawes' "A Brightly-Colored Box Filled with Stars". This was a poignant tale and it was quite different from the other stories in this collection. LOVED it.
All in all, I thought this was a very good collection!
As I said, this series just did nothing for me, but all were well-written, properly formatted, and there were no glaring typos. An entertaining way to pass the afternoon, but I won't be rereading this one.
I did all three on several occasions while reading "Attic Toys". You won't be disappointed.
