On the whole it was a terrific book with a wide variety of stories to interest just about anyone. It also had varying degrees of horror/suspense so that not all the stories were in the gross area, though a couple of them were (one of my favorites as a matter of fact). I think it was well worth the cost of the book and now I have some new authors to put on my list and keep an eye out for!
1. Monsoon Devil by Armand Constantine - Starts the anthology off with a bang. Nightmarish quality with doomed characters.
2. The Tennatrick by John Palisano - Decent little ancient monster story.
3. The Guixi Sisters by Jodi Kaplan Lester - Beautifully written.
4. Silver Needle by Richard Grove - Classic dark fairy tale.
5. The Measure of a Man by George Willis - I'm a zombie fan of the highest order. Put those zombies in a more unique setting, and I'll be applauding. Ships of the hungry undead floating from port to port? Oh, yeah! Tell me more and please make it bloody.
6. The Grieving Process by Mike McCarty - Loved this one because I truly didn't know where it was taking me at first.
7. Late Check-In by Vince Churchill - Evil ghosts will always have a special place in my heart. Great story.
8. Inside Out by Lisa Majewski - A he-got-what-he-deserved story worthy of some evil chuckles.
9. Diana and the Goong-Si by Lisa Morton - Victorian vamp story by way of the Orient.
10. Alley Oops by Del Howison - Although this story just didn't grab me, Howison makes good use of eerie imagery of wind and running.
11. The Mysterious Name by Kelly Dunn - One of the few stories in this anthology that didn't hold my attention for long. Not bad, just not my cup of tea.
12. Eddie G. at the Gates of Hell by R. B. Payne - What's not to love about a giant, oozing fly from hell?
13. The Bear Who Swallowed the Sky by Jason M. Light - I loved this one. Simple and almost lyrical. I'll definitely look for more from Light.
14. The Svancara Supper Society by Joey O'Bryan - Dark horror/science fiction. Queasy stomachs should read something else. :)
Overall, this was a great read. It's refreshing to read stories by authors I haven't read before. Who knows? The next "big" thing in horror might be within these pages. I like that each story is uniquely themed. I really enjoy short stories, but single-themed anthologies don't always hit the mark.
Midnight Walk is the first release from Darkhouse Publishing. They're promising to produce quality, affordable books - I like that. Although those special and/or limited editions are nice and look awesome on the shelf, it's wonderful to find good horror novels that I can actually afford and don't mind sharing. This is definitely an anthology I would buy to gift to my horror reading friends.
