Editorial Reviews


★★★★★ "I love this collection, each story, each tale within is a gem! Some of the seasoned writers come forward with these chilling, thrilling stories that keep you on the edge of your seat. A great read!"—Shefali

★★★★★ "
A creative collection of alternative histories that reimagine the Battle of Little Big Horn, the Apollo 11 moon landing, and the making of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, among others, complete with vampires, mummies, sirens, and space werewolves. Some of the stories are haunting, some humorous, and some heartbreaking, but all of them are entertaining. Fantastic tales, indeed."—S.G. Browne, author of Breathers and Less Than Hero

★★★★★ "
More than fantastic, more than terror. These are tales of wonder and heart, stories of untapped mystery and unbridled imagination, fables of fiction with no bounds. Dream free with these amazing masters of the macabre and marvelous! Because these are truly Fantastic Tales of Terror!"—John Everson, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The House by The Cemetery

★★★★★ "Fantastic Tales of Terror
 is a fantastically fun anthology, and I enjoyed every minute of it. The stories take historical figures and situation and infuse them with supernatural beings and happenings. It is incredibly effective, taking the familiar and putting an almost Twilight Zone twist on it."—Mark Allan Gunnells

★★★★★ "
In the tradition of excellence readers expect from Crystal Lake Publishing, these incredible stories will expand imaginations (and instill terror at times). A stellar line-up of favourite authors are included in this Anthology, very well chosen and curated by Editor Eugene Johnson."—Eldritch Reading Reindeer
