Content wise, the standouts are "Sporemind" by Wesley Gray, "The Man" by Matt Kurtz, "Milsbourne, Michigan" by OJ Connell, and "Creepers" by Tammy Salyer.
Overall worth it for $2.99 but honestly until they fix the grammar and font issues I wouldn't pay much more.
I always get excited when reading short story collections because if I find one previously unknown to me writer whose story I love I feel like I've hit the jackpot. The Big Book of New Short Horror was a great read and will be a book I return to over the years ahead. I highly enjoyed 60%, loved 38% and skipped 2% of the stories. The only con is that all the authors' seem to be emerging so when I really liked a story there wasn't a bunch of other offerings for me to track down and read by that author--bummer.
Very good! I'll purchase volume two when it's available!
This would warrant two more stars if the formatting didn't render it nearly unreadable.
As for content, the majority of them didn't take a lot of critical thinking (so you can breeze right through it), had good plots, and were well written. There were a few that even had me laughing out loud or exclaiming at 'the horror'. Of course there were a couple at the other end of the spectrum, but I'd have to say they were so outweighed by the good that I don't even remember which ones they were!
This is a really good collection of short stories, of all different types of the horror genre. Anyone who enjoys a good horror show will love this book.
I love short stories, and I love horror fiction, but I had to force myself to finish this collection. (I really wanted to like it, if only because I was offered such a good deal in terms of money for number of stories.) It's serviceable if you need something to pass the time in an airport or waiting room, but for me it was the short-horror equivalent of the ninth through sixteenth games of Solitaire during a slow afternoon at work.

Perfectly over the top at times, and appropriately inappropriate when I need it to be. That's the tell of good short horror anthologies.Published 21 months ago by Keith Mitchell

Terrible editing job. Halfway through the book all of the words were underlined. What the hell is up with that. Made reading very difficult.Published on January 3, 2013 by steve
Some of the stories were good, many had "loose end" endings. By that I mean they read like the first chapter of a novel so they leave you hanging wondering what? That's it, what? Read morePublished on October 3, 2012 by RoyBlaze
