I enjoyed "The Pond" the most. It is a good horror story, well written and a decent idea. I think that was the best tale in the collection (for me, anyway). A man/ghost comes out of a garden pond and is determined to get into the house he thinks is "his". This story was quite creepy.
I also really liked "It Sticks With You", where an aggressive wasp species migrate to America. They kill their prey with their highly toxic stings then turn their kill into a hive. My description makes it sound a bit like a dodgy B movie, but it is a good story. Well written with a real feeling of poignancy about it. I also absolutely hate wasps, so the idea of being turned into a hive/food source by the little blighters is not a pleasant thought.
I also enjoyed "To Be Heard"- (I think it was called that, not got kindle with me to check and memory like a sieve),it was about a lonely young guy who dies in his flat from carbon monoxide poisoning and his ghost comes back. Unfortunately, everyone is too busy carousing and watching telly to notice. Nicely written and enjoyable.
The rest were ok, enjoyable and readable.
I would also like to mention "Witch", about a woman being hung for witchcraft-not exactly what I would class as a horror story, but an interesting tale.
I also liked a rather predictable tale about two women hiking in the Highlands- (sorry- can't remember the title). They take refuge with a kindly old couple who warn them that a supernatural creature known as "the Slaugh" is on patrol- you can probably guess the outcome. It was a good story, though.
I liked the little bit at the end where you learn a bit about the authors.
Well worth it for 77p.
Having said that there were at least 6 stories in here I really liked..so not a bad deal overall.
The only problem with this collection is the number of spelling errors, typos, and missing words. They can be really annoying.
However, if you like short horror stories, I would definitely recommend this book.
