About the Author

Anthony J. Rapino resides in Northeastern Pennsylvania, somewhere between the concrete of the city and the trees of the forest.  On occasion, you'll find him moderating the feverish battles between the creatures of these two arenas.  Whose side he's on is anyone's guess.

I read this book in 24 hours, not because it lacked material, but because I couldn't put it down.

Each story deals with a different horror, and yet they seem connected, whether by the mysterious town of Moon Hill, or by the dark, shadowy mind of the author.

One thing that impressed me about this collection was the atmosphere, like Halloween as you imagine it from childhood. It is a mix of all the colour and earthy goodness of October, mixed with the dark and twisted things lurking just out of sight. When we are finally faced with those things, the result is wickedly satisfying.

This collection covers a range of emotions, moods, tones, and styles - but all of them are clearly the product of a unique and engaging mind. Terror doesn't take long to take hold, but once it does - it won't let you go, and you won't let this book go until you're done.

It's like being blasted with a firehose spraying imagination at high-pressure instead of water. The sweet moments are as moving as the frightening moments are bleak - and the range of characters you will meet as you make your way through Moon Hill and the surrounding landscape is as mind-boggling as the wonders that befall them.

Very good collection with a deliciously eerie edge to them that makes you want to keep reading page after page to find out what else could be conjured up. The author has a novel being released soon and after reading his collections so far, I am eagerly awaiting that date!

An intriguing collection of short fiction based in the mythic town of Moon Hill. The alluring stories that comprise the collection are unique as the town itself: dark, suspenseful, and most of all, enticing. The author gives us well-written, tightly-woven stories that touch upon myriads of emotions. Stand outs are:

"From Your Body They Rise", is a surreal and haunting tale of curiosity and the wonderment of discovery. Alan discovers a peculiar "plant" that would make him a legend in science, and re-define physics. As the journey grows, so do the stakes. With a suspense that is palpable, the author weaves the reader into the tale white-knuckled, with effortless grace and ease.

"Hair of The Dog", Poor, John. Some guys just can't get a break. He gets the courage up to ask the girl at the local coffee shop out, and she rejects him. A bit worse, actually. She simply states that he is "dark and depressing." He walks out and goes in search of another java-joint. However, his options may be limited. This one is short, sweet and best of all, hilarious.

"And The Drums Went Thump Thump Thump", is a somber, heart-felt tale of the struggles single parents face. John is trying his best with his teenage, death-metal loving daughter, Ashley. John decides to open a door into her world, her life. Perhaps with some renewed insight, he can understand her gruff exterior. A pair of street thugs would like to do the same as well. Can John put the bottle down and finally stand up?

"Struck By Golden Lightning", Ewan has the mind of a child. Despite some of his neighbors understanding this, others are more reluctant to have their children play with him. This touching, fantastical tale explores family, friends--tolerance vs. intolerance--and the belief that anything is possible.

I always find it interesting when an author releases a short story collection that carries a share theme or setting. In the case of Welcome to Moon Hill, Anthony Rapino takes readers on a walking tour of sorts around the small town of Moon Hill, nestled in some forgotten patch of Pennsylvania. Despite its leanness, Anthony offers nineteen stories all situated in Moon Hill, shining a light on its residents. A good number of these stories are short, short stories, clocking in at merely a page sometimes. For me, it was the heftier stories that offered the real entertainment.

The first stand-out was a story called "Stanley," about a man and his dog. In this case, a man and his remarkably stupid dog. Stanley is one of those lost causes in the mutt world, and in his case he has an appetite for rocks. And it's on Halloween night, when the dog and his owner go out for a walk that the dog leads the man to the end of the road. Literally. And the strange, reclusive man living there. For me, as a dog lover, this was an easy charmer to get me into this collection, and the whole ordeal of putting up with a dog that's more trouble than it's worth is something I can relate to. The tension didn't build up quite like I'd hoped, but still darned good and with a very nice payoff at the end.

Another one, this one a gruesomely fun bit of horror and botany mixed, was "From Your Body They Rise." There's a very small piece called "Surreal Botany" that precedes it and gives a good idea of what to expect from the story, but it still doesn't prepare you for the creepy factor. A scientists discovers a new form of plant-life that feeds on carrion--ewww--then finds that it feeds on human flesh as well, and it's not exactly fussy if the person is alive or dead.

This collection of delightfully creepy tales grabs hold of you by the short hairs and doesn't let you go until you've finished them all. Believe me. I know.
