Ricky and the elder gods by S.M Williams. A scary tale of secret societies, interdimensional gods and the price that comes from serving them. I like the use of dual point of views of both the servant to the elder gods and the person they are hunting. It had good characters, a statisfying plot and lots of hints at a much bigger story. After reading it I wanted to spend more time with these characters.
Courting the Queen of Sheba by Amanda C Davis. Carnivals and the circus are ripe for tales of the horrible and creepy. At first I thought this story was set in the middleages or an alternate fantasy realm and I think it would have worked just as well if it had been. It concerns people in a circus travelling around the U.S at the beginning of the twentieth century and what they do when they encounter an exhibit that is more than they bargained for.
Over all I really enjoyed reading the Arcane Sampler. Some of the stories weren't to my personal taste but they were all well written examples of horror that gave me some thrills and chills while reading. For the price of this book, how can you go wrong? Highly recommended.

4. "Ricky and the Elder Gods" by S.M. Williams: A dual-POV tale between the hunter (assisted by two otherworldly, indescribable creatures) and the hunted (one very tough chick).
5. "Gingerbread and Ashes" by Jaelithe Ingold: In this well-told sequel, you'll wish you'd never wondered what became of Hansel and Gretel.
6. "Dear Management" by Tom Wortman: Hands-down the funniest tale in this issue, in which a new employee confronts the source of a horrific odor emanating somewhere above his office.
7. "In the Place Where the Tree Falleth" by Michael Lutz: A seminary student selling Bibles happens upon an ancient house where the mysterious owners believe in a new god who is not silent.
