I am disappoint.

Yes, I just used an over-used internet (lol cat) meme to (in my opinion) adequately describe my feelings about this book in the spirit of this book.

Four 5-star and two 4-star reviews? Seriously? Who is reading this book? I thought I was getting a crazy-dark fiction book, something a step beyond the horror genre. I get a depressed, Jewish, Big Bad Wolf, 20-somethings who can't grow up, a werewolf vs. The Peppercorn Rent (with the last name of Lupine - really?), and... I can't even go on - I started skimming. I didn't finish. I read a lot (according to my goodreads profile, 266 books in the last three years), and I really try not to judge a book by it's cover. I really should have my an exception in this case. I've read that short stories are the most difficult of writing styles, as authors have to fit into thirty pages what some put into one-thousand. The reader needs to at least be able to form some kind of assumption, draw some conclusion - they need to be able to figure out what's happening - based on what they're reading: these stories just don't do that. Okay, the Peppercorn story does... but even so - it just wasn't good. I guess it boils down to I didn't care - what happened, was was going to happen... there was nothing I liked about any of it and it wasn't exciting or original.

The formatting was REALLY bad, as well. I don't know if this is an Amazon problem, a publisher problem, or a Kindle (which I guess *would* be Amazon) problem, but it was insanely distracting and I would have asked for my money back if I hadn't borrowed it from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library.

An interesting concept but I was turned off by most of the stories before I gave up altogether. Just not for me.

Tim Lieder instantly gained my respect for producing the first anthology I've come across in some time that does not include its editor's own fiction between its pages. It's a practice that has become all-too-common these days, and any editors who do it are instantly suspect in my eyes. Essentially, they're just making sure they get a little extra added to their royalty checks. Thank you, Mr. Lieder and Dybbuk Press, for taking the high road, and for producing one of the more consistent modern anthologies.

The first impression that Teddy Bear Cannibal Massacre made on me was through its cover art (by Amanda Rehagen): an obviously pissed-off poseable stuffed bear brandishing what is either a spatula or some sort of medieval fly swatter. This image is surprisingly good at setting the tone for the anthology: the circumventing of my expectations. Nothing was what I thought it would be, most of all the fact that not a one of these "11 stories of fear, obsession, and killer clowns" has a damn thing to do with a teddy bear cannibal massacre, in any sense of the phrase.

Once I got past that, however, I was ready to take on each in Teddy Bear Cannibal Massacre story on its own merits. The first one, "Formaldehyde" by C.C. Parker, however, did not make much of an impression. It took Paul Haines to really get me ready for some entertainment with his "Doof Doof Doof". Its beginning doesn't show much promise, but it folds wonderfully into the rest of this revisionist fairy tale starring Little Red Riding Hood, the Big Bad Wolf, and the Three Little Pigs.

Roberta Rogaw's "Peppercorn Rent" is a more pedestrian kind of tale, but its inclusion of lupine lady, a singer named Lime Green Jello, and an old land rule from the 15th century raises it above the rabble.

No editorial vison. Skip this one. There is no indication in this book anywhere of what the unifying theme or selection criteria was. Even that might have bumped up the quality some. Some kind of interstitial material to help us see the qualities the editor saw in these stories. And some words somewhere so the editor could editorialize on his own book.

Some of the stories are good, but they are wasted here.
