It Came From the Trailer Park: Volume 1 Kindle Edition
Do you love sparkly vampires? Well too bad, because you won’t find a single one of those fancy-dancy bloodsuckers anywhere in this collection!
It Came From The Trailer Park began as a fun idea to revisit the Classic Horror and Old-School Creature Feature genres with a hefty helping of B-rate tropes thrown in for good measure. Who doesn’t love a good Bruce Campbell or classic Vincent Price flick on a dark and dreary night?
Emmy award winner Bill Oberst Jr. opens the collection and sets the stage for the stories to come. From aliens to demons to werewolves and so many more, you’re sure to fall in love with these tales of the Macabre.
So come on in. Take a load off. And get yourself ready for nineteen unforgettable tales, straight from the Trailer Park.
Stories written by: Sara Brooke, Mel Todd, Charity Ayres, Amie Gibbons, William Alan Webb, Philip K. Booker, J.F. Posthumus, JL Curtis, John Drake, Michael K. Falciani, Michael Gants, Rob Howell, R.J. Ladon, LawDog, Benjamin Tyler Smith, Kevin Steverson, Christopher Woods, Jenny Wren, and William Joseph Roberts.
From Trailer-trash to armageddon survivalists, this book ROCKS!

From someone who has actually lived in a trailer park out in the country it’s hilariously accurate. With a touch of paranormal, this collection of stories feels like the outer limits meets trailer trash. Some stories you will find funny, some not so much, and some are just plain weird.
If you don’t know what a double wide or a redneck is, keep on moving, but to me this is better than the silly horror shows about how technology will ruin us (seriously how many more shows of that do we need? Wouldn’t be scary if they had an apple employee in the show “did you turn it off then turn it back on?” 😂)
I learned of this volume when Arlan Andrews announced the acceptance of one of his stories for Vol. 2. I saw this one had a Lawdog story, and that told me this book was worth the price of admission. I'm looking forward to the release of Vol. 2 now, and I hope we'll see an increase of general quality over this one.
As with many independently published books, there were a few grammatical errors, but not enough to be distracting. However, I had to deduct one star for a combination of two reasons.
First was a pair of errors that any editor or beta reader with a drop of redneck blood in their veins would've caught. It's Busch beer, not Bush, and when someone is shooting a shotgun, the shells don't go downrange towards the target.
Second was a SJW author who had to include a "woman of color" in an interracial relationship (with a homosexual son, but said homosexuality was important to the story so no foul there) who doesn't know the difference between a clip and a magazine. Petty gripes perhaps, but hey it's my review and four stars is a solid rating.
Halfway through the anthology, but need to review before I die laughing from great stories and situations.
A good blend of authors took a common trope and let their imaginations run wild. The results are very good to hilarious. From mixed cowboy romance and supernatural thriller to magical suspense, and then to absolutely tounge-over-fang comedy, it's a set of tales to lighten the heart as the dark of the year rolls around.
Unfortunately for the dark, those cries are of joy to be able to use the advanced optics and exotic weapon loads that certain protagonists have kept ready for just this emergency. And to be able to fill that space or jar on the mantle just waiting for an exotic trophy.
Read, enjoy, and laugh.
