Review

"There is no doubt that she soars above the endless parade of independent horror authors to shine as a true star in the darkness. With the brilliant anthology House of Horrors she proves why she is a perennial favorite. To put it simply, this is a great assembly of tales anyone would be proud to have in their collection"
~Joshua Skye
DARK MEDIA

From the Author

 I love writing and I particularly enjoy writing horror fiction. I see the world as a dark and dangerous place sometimes. Not all monsters look like monsters. My first marriage is why I write horror. Monster Inside is in this collection. I wrote it on Valentine's Day 2009. It made my day and gave me a definite direction to go in.

I just finished House of Horrors and LOVED it. Being a horror movie fan since I was a kid, I thought all of these short stories were spooky as heck. Carole Gill knows how to weave a story and some included a bit of creepy history! I truly whined out loud in fright a couple of times!! I'm not one to go into great detail, but if you are a fan of horror, you won't want to miss this one!! High marks to Ms. Gill.

Format: Paperback
“I fear we too are dying, for we live with madness.” The nightmarishly beautiful prose is but one reason to venture into the unnerving catacombs of House of Horrors, an anthology of short genre excursions by the indomitable Carole Gill. From a storm-shrouded lighthouse to the foggy realms of haunted forests and even a jaunt through Whitechapel, Carole Gill lulls you into her gothic web, masterfully weaving for you a series of nightmarish tales to unease your dreary nights. She is the contemporary incarnation of the storyteller at the fire, and we gather in the light of the flickering flame wide-eyed and eager to listen.

Included here is Dreams of a Vampire, a prequel to Gill’s The House on Blackstone Moor. It aims to fulfill a few curiosities, and it does not disappoint. Longtime fans will be excited and rewarded, not just by the inclusion of this expansion of her seminal saga, but by each and every other story collected here. Zombies rejoice with their own brand of holiday cheer in one of my favorite tales, Seasonal Undead. It is no surprise that Gill’s specialty is vampires, and she continues to satiate the enthusiast by ending her anthology with a curious celebration of the classic tale Carmilla, with none other than Bram Stoker himself making an appearance.

Carole Gill’s talent is a wonder to experience. She has the uncanny ability to craft horrors imbued in fairy tale finesse. The dreamy landscape of her imagination flows across the page with thoughtful, thought-provoking sophistication. There is no doubt that she soars above the endless parade of independent horror authors to shine as a true star in the darkness. With the brilliant anthology House of Horrors she proves why she is a perennial favorite. To put it simply, this is a great assembly of tales anyone would be proud to have in their collection.

"That was why vampires always went for the blood-engorged organs first, drinking and savoring the precious nectar."

Gill, Carole (2014-06-07). House Of Horrors (Kindle Location 4181). Creativia. Kindle Edition.

For those who like their horror in short, sharp (no pun intended) doses, I can do no more than recommend Carole Gill's 'House of Horrors' to you. Here is a collection of sixteen short stories that take readers not so much on a walk on the wild side, as a journey through the dark side. Ms. Gill's imagination and inspiration takes on various guises in this collection of stories that ranges from the prequel to her Blackstone Moor vampires series, to my personal favourite, 'Better to Die', a rabid take on the heroic Grace Darling story. This was not one for the faint-hearted and opens the collection in spectacular fashion. The book takes readers on a wonderful roller coaster ride with many different variations on the vampire theme being featured, and I am not going to spoil reader's enjoyment by going into details here, other than to simply say, try it, you won't be disappointed.

I have just completed Carole's anthology of horror and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I grew up with horror legends such as King, Koontz, Poe, Shelley, Stoker and I added Gill to that list. If you love sparkly vampires you better look elsewhere because all you will see here is blood-thirsty demonic soul suckers. From remote lighthouses to the streets of 1800's London you will find stories about death, destruction, mayhem and misery.

Tread lightly.

This was a great and very entertaining anthology. Carole Gill does an excellent job with each story and creature of finding just the right nerve to set the tingles all over the back of your neck. This is a horror anthology just as the cover says. If you do not like to read horror then you will not care for this book, but... if you are a horror fan then you NEED this anthology! The stories flow and the plot of each story is wonderfully written. There are so many different monsters in this book the no matter what your biggest fear is or your favorite one to read about you are gonna find it without fail.

Very much enjoyed and highly recommended.

First off, I received a complimentary copy in exchange for a review.

If you are looking for a book that you can read a few pages here and few pages there (especially on short commutes) this is not the book for you. Gill has put together a book with enough horror to fill you quota for the year. In these pages you will find vampires, werewolves, DaVinci, a touch of SF, zombies, and more.

If you are a fan of Gill's Blackstone Vampire Series, you will love the prequel (although it is far too short and should be expanded into a novella, at least) and there is the return of Eco.

All the short stories in this collection are fresh and enjoyable. Some more than others and many have unexpected endings, for example Beacon. You'll love it and it opens the anthology.

As a reviewer I was thinking of reviewing each story and judging each on its own merit, but this collection is too large with too much to enjoy. If I were to pick my favourite story, it would be: First. This tale kicks the rear of all the other tales in my opinion.

As with opinion, each has their own and with all these tantalising tales to devour, I'm sure you'll find several you'll like and a few you'll love.
