In my opinion the volumes have gotten better every year, with this current one being the best yet. This is not slasher horror, or gory and gruesome for no apparent reason, but are instead well-crafted “dark poetry”, mystery, murder, poisonings, etc., poetry that has deeper meaning other than just gratuitous violence.
Of course not every poem in this anthology is a winner (“Hey look it’s 100 floors of frights they not all going to be winners!”), but if you like horror and poetry you are bound to find at least a few that really stand out and make the purchase worthwhile. Personally I highly enjoyed the majority of poems in this anthology, seven really stood out to me, and a few I thought were downright brilliant.
This came out in October so it was perfect Halloween reading for me. I look forward to the next one.
I will also third that not 100% of the poems are the best I've ever come across, but from an overall anthology perspective, I thought they played really well together. Clay F. Johnson always finds a way to evoke such deep emotion, and just leaves me wanting more. I'm looking forward the the fifth, sixth, and many more anthologies. Keep up the great work.
