Well done,wish he would finish with a novella to develop the story.
Anthony T. Polito
As if that wasn't enough reason to enjoy it, there's 100 horror filled stories packed into it with New England as the backdrop.

Lots of spoooky smorgasbord in this creepy collection. Even more fun if you are familiar with the Northeast. Great nighttime reading--- but not if you're alone in the house. Leave the lights on!

Each spooky short tale has it's own memorable traits and this book in it's entirety is well worth purchasing. My daughter (who is 15) and I took turns reading this to each other before bed and had a lot of fun with it!

I've read a few of the offerings from Shroud publishing since they opened up shop and this one does not disappoint.

This book is also the perfect travel reader, I picked this up last week prior to going on a trip, it was perfect for getting in some interesting reading and not needing to worry about investing a lot of time, its easy to pick back up wherever you leave off.

As if that wasn't enough reason to enjoy it, there's 100 horror filled stories packed into it with New England as the backdrop. There's plenty of history and lore from this area of the country and these stories tap into some of that, while others give you a new flavor of something even darker. I could go into some of my favorites but with 100 stories there's too many to mention here.

Reader Beware: Clearly some very talented writers contributed to this book, for those of you who enjoy New England as a vacation spot, let's just say that planning your next camping trip to the white mountains,a B&B along the scenic coastline of Maine, or even a quick stop into Salem, Mass to get a taste of local legend, this may have you thinking twice....

These are only scary stories for a campfire, aren't they?

This is a quite interesting collection of tales spanning everything from witches to demons, serial killers and mutants. I have to say that variety is this collection's strength, you are bound to dislike some of the stories but it's also certain hat you will find at least ten or twenty stories you will fall in love with. They are all very short pieces, which can easily be read in five minutes, just perfect for a brief scare before you go to bed :). Oh and before I forget to mention it, the cover art and the choice of story distribution, fonts and what not, (the little details) make this stand out as a very, very nice anthology.
