The Night Terrors anthology is a collection of 17 short stories, of which three are classics by Mark Twain, Guy de Maupassant and Edgar Allan Poe. The classic stories highlight the way horror stories have changes in the past couple hundred years and yet don't feel out of place amongst this varied collection of modern tales. The newer stories have a good mixture of themes including vampires, ghosts, zombies, aliens and giant insects - all of which are well written and helps turn this into a real page turner.
I enjoyed many of the stories here and don't recall finishing a bad one which is something I find rare with such a mixture of authors and themes. I found the collection really easy to keep reading with my personal favourite being Share The Love - a tale featuring both aliens and zombies.
In all I found this collection really enjoyable and can happily recommend it to any horror reader as I am sure you will find most stories here enjoyable. A real treat this was.
Night Terrors Anthology is a collection of 17 horror short stories. The stories cover many different terrors such as vampires, zombies, aliens, ghosts and the human mind. In addition to new stories it also contains three classic short stories by Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe and Guy de Maupassant.
What I enjoyed about reading this anthology were the constant surprises, no story was like the other, some of my favorites were Hunting Shadows (about a Vampire hunter), Depths (about a magical cave) and Share the Love (about an alien invasion).
I can recommend this book to any horror fan, because no matter what subject you favor, there is bound to be at least one story for you in here.
My favorite short story in this anthology was "Failed Sacrifice" which had me drawn in from the beginning, Cecily thought Annie was her friend until she was thrown in the ocean as a living sacrifice; her bloodline made an agreement with the sun gods to continue to prosper, blood from their line was dropped in the ocean and then threw in a living sacrifice but this one failed. I am waiting to see what will take place and why Cecily was released from the depths of the sea.
"Like Father Like Daughter" another enjoyable read in Night Terrors, Gale discovering that her husband was a vampire after having a daughter with him, Greta, who also appeared as a pale, sickly child who was participating in a blood-sucking feast with her father. Gale came home from work watching them feast on a woman, and cut Randolph in pieces and buried his body. Will he rise back from his grave as Greta kept protesting that Daddy will come home?
There were a few minor typographical errors in the reading; in addition, in comparison to English language in America versus in European country, Australia, there are some terms that may appear misspelled but are perfectly fine in their writing style for most literature.
