Highly entertaining and varied collection of spooky tales
Reviewed in the United States on September 29, 2019
Wonderful and wonderfully varied collection of haunting tales perfect for late-night reading in the days leading up to Halloween. Without a stinker in the bunch, each story has its own unique style, setting, and mood reflecting the diverse array of writers involved in this anthology. From spooky houses to the far reaches of outer space, from foggy and historic London Town to popular modern phone apps and RPGs, these stories run the gamut from fantasy to scifi to speculative fiction and outright horror. Truly something for anyone's taste here. I enjoyed every story, but a few that stood out for me were "Hannah and Gregory" and "The Teller Tree" because I enjoy folkloric and fairy tale riffs, "Dawson Farms" because it played upon my own fears of claustrophobia and feeling trapped, and "My Own Dark Way" and "From Hell" for their riffs on a dark period of London history. But really, I could list every story here. There wasn't a single one that didn't thrill and entertain. From humor to horror, I can't imagine any reader who won't find something to fall in love with in this amazing collection of expertly written tales. Proceeds also earmarked for charity which I applaud and support as well. Highly recommended.
