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.
If I'm going to read horror, I prefer humorous horror, maybe for the seeming oxymoron behind the term, but also because I think scare-based horror doesn't translate well through the reading process. Reading needs to engage us in a different kind of immediatism, must stimulate us in another way. Writing can creep us out, sure, but the highest immediate emotion writing can still in us is a laugh, and this anthology offers us some good ones while also creeping us the f out. Most notable to me was John Di Donna's "Cannibal Confidential," a peek at a pirate cannibal channel, a Food Network for those with the taste for their neighbors' flesh. But even cannibals have a code... A magnificent story.
