5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent horror anthology
By Momma Janky on October 18, 2020
💁🏽‍♀️ I HAD to order this anthology when i found out mother horror (aka sadie hartmann) had a story in there, but a couple of other things impressed me right off the bat. First of all, of the 12 stories, more than half are written by women! It’s exciting to have so much ladies of horror fiction representation in an anthology. As a matter of fact, it was also edited by a woman (sarah scutt). Secondly, there is a good variety of horror subgenres. There are stories about demons....aliens...magic...CLOWNS. Yes, folks there is a clown story and it was excellent. I liked every story in this book. Now for the emoji review!
🔥”to burn the black church”- sisters of slaughter. Mansplaining about how they didn’t burn down the church correctly has dire consequences.
🧟‍♂️”high tide”- a c fraser. There are things even more frightening than a literal tsunami.
🤡”clown craze”- mark allan gunnells. A man trying to restore the honest reputation of clowns everywhere runs into a bit of a problem.
🌲”dancer in the pines”- c w blackwell. Proof positive that kids are dumb and will pick up ANYTHING, no matter how creepy, weird or out of place!
🌝”the hag stone”- michelle renee lane. If you give a beth a hag stone, she will see through your bullshit sooner or later.
🚪”the cellar”- ethan pollard. Is the cellar haunted or is the man insane? Either way, creepy as hell!
🔑”hunger”- jill girardi. Let’s just say if you get a cheap room in a creepy hotel with residents who keep disappearing, then you get what you pay for....
👩‍👧‍👦”matriphagy”- sadie hartmann. Nothing tastes quite like momma’s..... innards.
👻”immortelle”- catherine mccarthy. Just desserts are best paired with red wine.
☠️”the house on dandy lane”- christy aldridge. Maybe i should take down my ‘no soliciting’ sign.
🐶”sometimes they linger”- justin montgomery. Unique grief horror/creature feature mash-up!
✨”fireflies”- sylvia elven. I wonder if a huge can of off would have helped them...
💁🏽‍♀️there you have it! Come for the clowns and stay for the creepy ginger kids💕
