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.
4.5/5 The Deep is my first dive (I'll see myself out) into microfiction and I didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did. Some of these authors really pack a haunting and chilling tale into just 100 words and it's very impressive. A lot more hits than misses in this collection and I'm excited to read the other three collections.
This anthology has a great concept at its core. I only wish the stories were more equal in quality. A handful were totally awesome but the great majority were monotonous and not super original. I mean, after reading for the fiftieth time about a hand or a tentacle grabbing someone's ankle, it started to feel a bit silly...
An exceptional collection of short horror fiction. Who knew hundred-word horror was a concept that I needed in my life? Each story packs such a punch in just a hundred words. Some are eerie, others amp up the creep factor, but most are downright terrifying. This is perfect for any horror fan looking for small stories to read in small bites. Enjoy!
These microbites of marine horror feature everything from sirens to krakens to waterlogged corpses. The poetry outshone most of the stories for me, my fave being by Renata Pavrey. A few of the more original/standout microfic pieces were those by Nico Bell, Patrick Barb, and Thomas E. Staples. 3 out of 5 tentacles from me!
