Book Description

Remember when you got your first doll, that loveable companion who saw you through the best and worst of days? Remember when Barbie was the doll version of who you wanted to be when you grew up? Be careful what you wish for…

In the world of Satan’s Toybox, nothing is ever what it seems, and being Barbie might not be all it’s cracked up to be. None of the dolls in these stories are the harmless comforting companions you may remember. From a haunted dollhouse to possessed porcelain dolls; you’ll find mischief, mayhem and bloody murders in these 18 tales.

You’ll find Mexican "Worry Dolls" who will make you worry, a lonely woman's cherished companions, a little girl's vehicle for revenge, a beautiful doll with a strange taste for blood, an adult movie star's look alike doll, the strange world of Barbie, an evil doll maker’s minions, a witch's influential dolls, a dollhouse with revolving occupants, living dolls who punish the criminal, a foreign clown doll intent on possession, a lonely child's one true friend, a demon doll who collects the souls of the innocent, and a doll possessed by none other than Jack the Ripper.


So go ahead, turn out the lights, cuddle up and prepare to be terrified. Just don’t take your eyes off the toybox…

3.0 out of 5 stars A great read for halloween February 24, 2012
By GB76
Format:Kindle Edition
There are a few pervasive fears that run deep inside our collective psyche as society; the fear to dark, to enclosed spaces, to clowns, to dolls. I guess it has to do with our necessity as a group to protect our children, our future. Demonic kids, or dollies, threat to undermine those values we hold most precious. And because of this same reason, even if you don't go to sleep fearing your teddy bear will come at you with the kitchen knife, this anthology will cause you a shiver or two next time you're in the company of a lovely porcelain doll. Even more so if it is antique.

This anthology is so diverse, it is hard to choose a sample that represents it well. So, I settled for reviewing the three stories that I enjoyed the most.

THE RIPPER'S DOLL, by Jason McKinney. This story has a great development and a twist in the middle that will make your jaw hit the floor. After I reached that mid-point, I couldn't stop reading. A total page-turner. The story does go a few paragraphs too long robbing the ending of its strength but even with that; this is a story you will remember for years to come.

THE DEVIL'S WORK, by Carole Gill. This was by far the one I enjoyed the most. It is so well crafted. The characters are likable, yet you fear them. The authorial voice is very clear through the main character, yet it is never intrusive; if anything, it increases the reader's feeling of witnessing events not made for their eyes. This story truly uses the eerie, atmospheric factor as one more tool to enrich the storytelling. A prime example of modern Gothic style.

MONSTERS ARE MADE, by Rob Miller. Among all the creepy, scary stories that form this anthology, MONSTERS ARE MADE is the only one with more than a hint of comedy in it; and I don't mean black humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stephen King-esque anthology of horror October 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The horror genre may not be everyone's cup of tea, but this anthology about evil dolls delivers a solid dose of unique, entertaining terror. Now I know why, as a child, I used to fear my dolls as they stared at me from a shelf in the darknesss. Their eyes seemed to glow with malevolence and I feared they would indeed come to life and devour me. Demonic Dolls brings this fear to life, and with each page, the stories delve into situations where this is the case. This is a fantastic read for those who are prepared to be scared by presumably innocent dolls who become possessed by typically human tendencies to commit murder and mayhem. I raise my glass in a salute to the anthology authors who were brave enough to explore the darkness that resides in the human soul and hand it over to mere toys. Chucky, that most demonic doll of all time, would raise his hand in salute as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dolls Are Just Plain Scary January 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
My wife will punch me if I say, "My name is Talking Tina..." My sister banned gifts of china dolls for my niece. If I go into a toy store and there are dolls on the shelves, my daughters guide me toward stuffed animals and games. Face it, to a lot of us, dolls are creepy and scary. Enter Angelic Knight Press, a fabulous independent publisher of speculative fiction. Their initial anthology in their Satan's Toybox series is called Demonic Dolls, and they are...demonic and dolls.

Some of these stories are super cool. Adeline, by Melissa Farrar, is an interesting treat. Scott Goriscak's Playing with Dolls is a typical Goriscak gem. I really enjoyed Stacey Turner's Soul Collector as well. You'd think nobody could do an "unsuspecting people end up in haunted property and they're the last to know it was haunted" story and still make it worth reading, but Turner does. Blaze McRobb, the knight who is not quite angelic who heads up this indie publisher has a fabulous introductory poem. Here's a taste.

And so the girl, now is sitting, still is sitting, still is sitting, on the shiny floor of horror, deep inside the room of gloom.
And her eyes have all the knowing of the dolls around her showing, and the knowledge still is growing, deep within this eerie room.

Want to take a guess to whom he's offering tribute?

Great anthology at a great price.
