Any one of these short stories could be a Twilight Zone episode (You notice I said Zone - not referring to glittery vampires). I really should have read this collection closer to Halloween, not Christmas.
This was actually a rather long collection with a variety of tales ranging from novella to very short story length.
I cannot say there was a bad story among the bunch. They were kind of like R.L Stine for grownups.
The thing that I enjoyed the most was the suspenseful nature - as opposed to horror. Also the unexpected twist at the end of one or two of the tales.
Good scary reading, perfect for a night with a bowl of popcorn and a mug of hot chocolate.

Absolutely loved this book! Its got some great, modern-style, novellas in it from some great, established authors. Don't want to give anything away, but there are lots of twist and turns to keep you reading long into the night.

This collection of supernatural noir stories was amazing. There was a huge selection of baaaaaad things our intrepid dicks (giggle) had to go up against. There were ghosts, zombies, demons, shape-shifters, alien parasites, and all manner of disturbing beasties.

Some, yeah, I'll admit, some we more noir than others. The noiricity of the stories varied, but I enjoyed all of them. I don't often partake in short fiction anthologies, but this was just the right book to make me question that decision.

This is a great collection, and a really cool premise. Noir fiction meets ghosts ghouls and zombies. There were some real stand out stories in this anthology, which I'll get to, but overall Grand Mal Press has put out another winner.

Check out the opener, Patrick Flanagan's tale - my personal favourite, too. Erik T. Johnson's story was mind-blowingly good, Wine and Spirits from Gregory L. Norris - excellent. I also really enjoyed the Box of Seven Sons, by Kent Alyn, and Randy Chandler's tale, the title of which is just too damn long to type, but not too long to read.

On titles, biggest win goes to Zoot Campbell - I don't think Amazon would let me publish the title in a review!

Great collection, loved it.

Craig Saunders, Author of Spiggot, Rain, The Outlaw King, Evolution, The Seven Point Star...OK, I'll stop now. ;)

I got this collection of short stories free for my Kindle. Can't anrgue with the price. The concept is the marrying of the noir genre with horror/fantasy fiction. So you have many a hard-boiled detective chasing after ghosts, demons and zombies. Since it is a compilation of different authors the stories vary in quality. Including some truly entertaining. Most are mediocre and one lost me two pages into it(I skipped it).

It was an easy read at the gym though. Especially since the short nature of the stories meant I could easily stop and continue later.
