Every storywas well-chosen; every author represented by solid, engaging storytelling,and every conclusion (even to those stories that are part ofcontinuing narratives) inevitable and, at the same time, wonderfullysurprising.”—Dr Michael R.

Continuing to make my way through the SNAFU brand of military scifi, I believe that this installment really packs a punch, not just for thrills but for originality and creativity. I'm not saying that the others aren't brilliant, but this one has several unique tales that stick to the palette. One of the most profound is "They Own the Night," a truly terrifying wartime yarn by B. Michael Radburn who stirs the imagination with creatures that almost puts zombies to shame...and they hop! Jack Hanson's story from his Cry Havoc universe is awesome. I read about the universe before in another Ripper and Brokehorn short in the SNAFU series, but my memory fails as to if the stories were the same. Still, how can a futuristic tale about prehistoric monster outfitted with war tech and fighting against aliens not be hella cool?! "After the Red Rain Fell," is a short but hard-hitting treat regarding soldiers going against a mutating, organism from which there is little escape. Over all, this page turning anthology is worth the ride, guaranteed to get the blood pumping as it moves throughout time, involving warriors of all natures and bringing the pain!

I have read three of the five Snafu books: Snafu: Heroes: An Anthology of Military Horror; Snafu: An Anthology of Military Horror, and Snafu: Survival of the Fittest. I just bought Snafu: Wolves at the Door. I really enjoyed the Snafu series and this book was not an exception. The majority of the stories in this book were top notch I especially liked “They owned the Night” and of “Storms and Flame”, I wish these two stories and several others were extended with additional background information and in some cases additional in story information. I strongly disliked the story “Slog”, may be additional background information would have helped the story. In any case I like the supernatural aspects of war and intend to read all of the Snafu stories when they come out. I highly recommend this series.

This book came up on my amazon alert, not sure why because I have never bought anything similar to it in the past. I am new to Kindle and thought "what the heck, it's only a couple of dollars". Some fun stories in here, a couple l really couldn't get into. All in all ig was worth the money, and l found myself some new authors to read.

The anthology has a wide variety of genre pieces. Some stories hit better than others but over all they were well written and interesting. In Vaulted Halls Entombed by Alan Baxter was best of breed, in my opinion.
