As can be expected with collections of this nature there are a few stinkers in the bunch, but overall the collection is worth reading. I knocked off a star because the editing is terrible and really distracts from the stories. The entire last half of the book on my Kindle is underlined, for some reason. Many of the stories do not look like they were proofread at all, or else the proofreader relied on "spell check" from Word, as you see a lot of homophones where it was obvious what the word was supposed to be. Quite annoying.

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.

First off, it was great to purchase a Kindle horror collection that is 'real' book length as opposed to magazine length.

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!

I am pretty easy going when it comes to short horror, and it takes something pretty bad to warrant a low review from me. Inadvertantly underlining the last 55% of the book certainly qualifies; how derelict in your editing do you need to be in order to let something like that slip through?

This would warrant two more stars if the formatting didn't render it nearly unreadable.

Perfectly over the top at times, and appropriately inappropriate when I need it to be. That's the tell of good short horror anthologies.

I took a chance and purchased this since I like horror anthologies. I was happy with my purchase. It had enough entertaining, imaginative stories to make the purchase worthwhile. If you enjoy short horror stories, take a chance. I am sure you will find plenty of good stories to keep those pages turning.

Terrible editing job. Halfway through the book all of the words were underlined. What the hell is up with that. Made reading very difficult.
