This is a savory sampling of what is inside “D for Demons,” the latest serving in the ambitious series, “A to Z of Horror,” by Red Cape Publishing. The book serves up a mix of the subtle and the explicit, and readers will flip the last page knowing that, beyond any doubt, our deranged world is populated by devils of every mast.
As with any story collection, there is a variety in qualitative terms. A couple contain poorly constructed dialogue, and the image of demons bearing mouths full of sharp teeth becomes blasé. However, the writers’ underlying concepts of how and where demons reside in contemporary society are as powerful as they captivating.
Ultimately, “D for Demons” contains two gems that are worth the price of admission: “Sp cial Scree ing 1 Nite Only” and “Rabid Rhino Blood.” In the former, a B-film crew from Europe tours small towns in the American Midwest. They stop at rundown motels, where they mingle with horror film-buffs and gullible locals. The dialogue is crisp, the descriptive writing pitch-perfect, and the demonic evil absolutely delicious. It is everything a short story should be.
“Rabid Rhino Blood” is such a wild ride that you will find yourself setting the book aside for a moment after completing it. Nothing can top it. If our criteria are pure evil and unrestrained gore, this is the prize-winner. What, after all, can be more entertaining than a vision of Hell where Jeffrey Dahmer-inspired sociopaths engage in ultra-violent death matches with Satan’s spawn? If you want to know the fate of humankind's worst specimens, try plunging into this story.
In sum, “D for Demons” is an excellent example of why God created horror story collections. Aficionados are strongly advised to grab a copy.

This is an outstanding anthology on that point alone. The diversity of stories and their ebb and flow throughout the book is on point.
Then there are the stories themselves. I savoured and enjoyed every one. Gothic pranks, Dahmer fans and gladiator battles in hell. What is not to love about that?
