Insanity, horror and dark fiction are my catharsis. Brutally honest reviews are on the house.

Dark Screams: Volume Seven

Dark Screams: Volume Seven - Brian Hodge, Bill Schweigart, Richard Chizmar, Brian James Freeman, Robert R. McCammon

Dark Screams: Volume Seven is obviously the 7th edition of the Dark Screams anthology. Containing six stories, the first and the last story made the collection for me.

LIZARDMAN by Robert McCammon
The hunter or the hunted? Tonight is the night-- he can feel it -- and it ends one way or another. My second favorite story in this collection.

 

A MONSTER COMES TO ASHDOWN FOREST (IN WHICH CHRISTOPHER ROBIN SAYS GOODBYE) by James Renner

Fascinating premise. I think this one could have been a lot better, it gets a little bogged down and then just bizarre at the end.

 

FURTHEREST by Kaaron Warren

A beach trip on acid, this one will have you rethinking just how far is too far.

 

WEST OF MATAMOROS, NORTH OF HELL by Brian Hodge

This was an odd story that was well written. I wanted to like it more than I did.

 

THE EXPEDITION by Bill Schweigart

I DNF this one.

 

SNOW SHADOWS by Mick Garris
My absolute favorite story in this collection. Beautiful and tragic, this story will haunt you--it did me.

 

This collection is totally worth the $3.99 on Amazon to buy it. I received mine as an e-ARC from Random House and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
