Mark of Perdition by R.L. Blalock
Reads like a full length novel. You don't feel cheated. You don't feel as if there are holes in the story. It keeps you hanging on wanting to know what is going to happen next. Why is Cas going through all of this? Is it all for real? Is she losing her mind? Is it all a nightmare real or imagined? I feel what Cas feels in the heat of the moment. R.L. makes you feel just what her characters are feeling and you get lost in the moment sort of to speak.
Baba by Tony Urban
Three teenagers Phil, Kenny and Mo take off on a trip in the mountains looking for a woman’s body that Phil witnessed being murder while on a hunting trip with his father.
I really enjoyed reading this little short as it reminded me of Stephen King’s story written as “The Body” but the movie was called “Stand by Me”. I have seen where Tony’s stories have been compared to Stephen King before in his series Life of the Dead. I can’t wait to read more of Tony’s work as I do have all three of the Life of the Dead novels.
Zombie Apocalypse by Max Lockwood
Sergio and Carl are in the military. They were on deployment when the zombie outbreak occurred. Sergio and Carl are staying with Carl’s sister Pip when the zombies show up. Pip is having a home coming party for her brother Carl. A friend of Pip’s Jennifer is at the party and Carl and Pip kind of sort hit it off.
I love the world that the author created for the zombies and all the characters too. I loved following along with Carl, Sergio, Pip and Jennifer as they fought off the zombies.
Lock and Key by Patrick Logan
Three guys Tony, Robbie and Charles break into a house while the couple is at home and in bed. They get more than they bargain for upon entering the home. Monsters under the bed, anyone? Or are the under the bed?
These three guys really cracked me up. They did some pretty dump things if you ask me, that is, if they have plans to leave the people alive. Reminded me of that tv show called Dumbest Criminals or something like that.
I was given this ebook by my fellow vampire enthusiast from instagram @booksinbangkok because her short story The Door appeared in this anthology. So let's jump into Delia's piece first. I was reading it and thinking just how comfortable the story was - an interview with an author in his overflowing library - a perfect setting for a bookworm, right? And then the story started unfolding but nothing really creepy happened. Or so I thought. Because just as I was finished with it, something clicked into place and I had that lightbulb-above-my-head moment. The horror came after finishing the story when my brain worked out all the consequences and did all the math. That was brilliant. She tricked me into thinking this was just a mild scary story but then it dawned on me and I was spooked a lot more. Her style is great and I can't wait to read more of her fiction.
When it comes to the other authors, there were some I didn't like much but the ones I liked were more plentiful. It's just like any other anthology - you can't like everything, that's impossible.
When it comes to the selection of the stories, I appreciated that the classic monsters gave way to more modern embodiments of fear - mostly the horror was more about what's within or around us than what supernatural world has to offer (I'm not saying there weren't any weird creatures because there were some). And sure, some stories were rather dystopian/apocalyptic but that was OK with me. Though I can see why pure horror addicts would complain here.
The most disturbing tale, which will probably haunt me in my sleep, included clowns. I'm not really afraid of clowns but in this case the visuals I was given are more than I asked for.
So if you want to read some new voices of horror fiction and dare to take a step into the darkness, this is what you can grab.
Mark of perdition was little different from you're other writing but still good.
Also like to say blood note by Sylvester barzey and send in the clowns by David J. Schmidt crazy insane and twisted love both of them.
And hand few of other Author's going to check out their work.
