Nox Pareidolia was edited by Robert S. Wilson and released (fittingly) on Halloween 2019. The first thing I noticed as I started into this for review, was the art. There is the cover to start us off, courtesy of Don Noble, and then all of the interior illustrations by Luke Spooner. The art is as breath-taking and vital as every story in the TOC. Each one gets a piece, and each is a fitting accompaniment.
The product summary describes Nox Pareidolia as ‘a new vision of weird and horrific ambiguity’. That’s unbelievably accurate. Non-themed horror anthologies live and die by their variety, and Nox Pareidolia lives up to its ambiguous promise. Weird fiction appears in all of it’s forms here: surreal (“Hello” by Michael Wehunt), achingly modern (“When the Nightingale Devours the Stars” by Gwendoyln Kiste, “Watch Me Burn with the Light of Ghosts” by Paul Jessup), and the classically strange (“The Many Rooms of Agatha Tate” by Wendy Nikel). There is a lot of content here, and a little something for all fans of weird fiction in 2020.
The only issue I have is that some of the stories don’t have enough room to breathe. Stories like these thrive in the ambiguity, but I often found myself sad when a story would abruptly end in the middle of the story’s apparent climax. This wasn’t a deal breaker, but something I took note of us I worked my way from story to story.
If you want a whirlwind glance into modern weird fiction, Nox Pareidolia is the book for you. Every flavor of strange and eerie can be found within, crafted by some of the best folks in the ‘biz. At a page shy of 600 pages, Nox Pareidolia is worth every penny.
These are the sort of scares that should be savored.
My favorite (no surprise!) was "When the Nightingale Devours the Stars" by Gwendolyn Kiste. She's one of my favorite writers and one of the big reasons I was interested in this collection, so I may be a little biased.
That being said, I really don't think there were any weak links in this title.
Every story here was quality, with several stand out selections. My favorites were the stories from Gwendolyn Kiste, S.P. Miskowski, Annie Neugebauer, and Kristi DeMeester.
If this collection has a theme, it’s “ambiguity.” These are stories that are going to make you think, and several deal with big concepts. A good handful of these stories will stay with me for a very long time. Highly recommend!
