All Naughty, No Nice. By Michael A Arnzen
A zombie tale like no other, with Santa’s Magic keeping him trapped in a cold dead world.
The Christmas Spirit. By Lisa Morton
A Ghost story within a Ghost story – amazing execution of writing here – a true haunting old-fashioned Ghost story reminiscent of Joe Hills “Heart Shaped Box.”
Psychopath Remix. By J.C. Michael
A new twist on an old Song – all I can say is horrifyingly fun!
The Present. By Israel Finn.
He captures the horror of everyday life for a beaten woman with true emotion. But of course, it’s Christmas so she finds her husband the perfect gift – a truly terrifying gift.
Christmas Carole. By Lisa Vasquez.
This story had a folklore ring too it, terrifying and bloody that becomes a yearly horror for one little girl. A new Carole is born.
The Last Christmas Dinner. By Christina Bergling.
A feast to end all feasts….all I have to say is I don’t want to be invited to this dinner.
I love this collection!
That sounds a bit harsh, but it's true. So, why the 4 stars? Because for an indie book it is a pretty solid collection of decent stories. Some were better than others, obviously, but I am glad I read all of them. I found a few creepy and a few that were gory, but all were decent; the main ones coming to my mind being from Willow Rose and Amy Cross. No offense to the other authors; I just can't recall their names off the top of my head.
There are editing errors. Not as many as in most indie books but enough to annoy me. Doesn't ANYONE (except the author of the last story) know what the hell a comma is? I got so sick and tired of sentences like, "No you don't." "Well come here," and so many others that scream for a comma. It almost drove me nuts. Where the heck have all the editors gone? Not only is there a horrible lack of commas but there are missing words, too.
*sigh* But other than those issues that are all too common with indie books, I did rather enjoy this one. It was so nice to read some decent horror stories to give me a break from the usual sentimental Christmas ones that are so plentiful out there.
If you grab this book I think you will enjoy it. Just don't expect great literature and good editing. All that said, you'll probably enjoy it, but don't expect to remember most of the stories later. So, for what it is, I rate it at 4 stars. I think knocking it down to three would be too harsh as the overall quality of the stories is pretty decent.
