To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Troy really did a nice job putting this collection together. There are some great stories, and the sequencing allows the reader to just catch his/her breath in time for the next tidal wave of dark surprises. Truly a great anthology and I think it will live up to, or more likely pass the previous works in the series. When the paperback comes out, I think you will see an even larger demand.
Enjoyed every page. Would definitely recommend to any fan of Stephen King and spooky, creepy, stories. Some stories were also very dark in a non creepy way, just straight up darkness for darkness sake. Something that is great in fiction in my opinion.

The fifth volume of the excellent Robbed of Sleep series is a gem: funny, arresting, and flat-out terrifying. Even in a crowd of 33 stories each entry is somehow a standout, and for the money you will not find a better collection of strange and dark fiction. Deftly chosen, expertly edited, and assembled with a care that is its own peculiar brand of craftsmanship, Robbed of Sleep 5 is an anthology that will do precisely what it says on the tin.
