The Horror Collection: Pink Edition is a diverse collection of impactful horror stories, much like other installments of The Horror Collection series. Why would it be called “Pink Edition?” Hmm. Irony? Subterfuge? Representative of the color of diluted blood? Read it and see what you think.
“That Song I Sing” by Kyle M. Scott is a tale of extreme psychological horror with a macabre and twisted ending. This story is reminiscent of the works of Edgar Allen Poe, with a modern flair, of course.
“And the Dead Shall Perish” by Mike Duke is the horrifying tale of a teen boy caught in a vampire apocalypse. Duke’s gift for characterization and terror shines through in this story.
“Are You the Girl with Ribbons in Her Hair?” by Douglas Hackle is the stuff of nightmares and gave me nightmares. This extreme horror story defies reason and sanity.
“Soft White Underbelly” by Tim Curran reads like Stephen King dipped in Edward Lee, with all the best attributes of both. In what way? King’s way of men bringing about the horrors they find themselves in, and the horrors are something Lee would inflict upon them.
“Steerage Rats” by Natasha Sinclair is dark prose turned gruesome terror. It is a complex story of deceit on many levels with a sprinkle of sci-fi horror and garnish of bloody creature horror.
“Blood for Blood” by Zoey Xolton is a story in two parts. The first part is really stand alone in its depth and presentation, a story of historic horrors of humanity. The second part takes the story to another level of completion, a dark imagining of what follows such beliefs and action.
“Book Magic” by Kevin J. Kennedy is a bibliophilic horror told in the first person. This one, of course, hit home with me and sent my mind racing.
The Pink Edition is an excellent installment in The Horror Collection series.
Once again Kevin J. Kennedy has put together another creative collection of freakish, ghoulish, and deliciously disgusting short stories from some of the top independent authors in the horror genre and subgenres. Whatever your taste in this genre, you will most assuredly find something within these pages to meet your requirements and whet your horror appetite. So sit back, turn the lights down low and let these seven talented wordsmiths take you on seven different ghoulish journeys into the unknown.

Good reading as a person with m.s I do not feel it was right that I was forced to do a written review of this book before I was allowed to continue to another book I gave it a 5 star rating and said it was a good book what more did you want...I want to thank my granddaughter for interrupting her day to write this for me
The Horror Collection: Pink Edition is another awesome collection of horror shorts organized by Kevin J. Kennedy. From a haunting phone call to vicious rats the size of small dogs, this one has tales that are spooky, haunting, horrific, gory, and so much more!
This one has two of my all time favorite tales from this series; Blood for Blood by Zoey Xolton and Book Magic by Kenin J. Kennedy.
Phew, what a collection! This is another awesome series of short stories that you can easily breeze right through in a couple hours, or take your time by only reading one tale every now and then.
If you’re a fan of books and horror, you have to check out the last tale in this collection, Book Magic, ASAP!
