Format: Paperback
Bad Neighborhood is a short story and poetry horror anthology, themed around the idea of “home.” Interestingly, the book came into being as the result of a Kickstarter campaign started by editor Fox Emm. The premise was to fund an extreme horror anthology inspired by the splatterpunk sub-genre. As a depraved gore hound, I’m definitely a fan of splatterpunk. For those who don’t know, I’d describe splatterpunk as extremely violent and limit pushing in both intensity and gore. Sounds fun, right?

I’ll give some highlights and tell you about the stories I enjoyed the most. These are really short stories that pack a punch so I won’t go into much detail or spoil anything. There were 29 poets and authors who contributed to this anthology, so that’s a lot of stories!

The collection starts off with a bang with Hugh Warren’s Intruder, which is fast paced, violent and ends with a nice twist.

Invitation Only by John McGuiggan: Very enjoyable, lots of visceral gore, and some extremely disturbing scenes which I relished. This was the kind of boundary pushing story I was looking for. The horror is extreme and will definitely make you wince. It was a story I was left begging for more of, and I could see it as a novella at least. An interesting character at the heart of it with some fascinating issues.

Home Defense by Mac Jones. A great spin on a home invasion tale with the tables turned. Lashings of gore.

The Kindest Cut by Lori M. Myers. This story is about a very deserving and graphic comeuppance for an abusive husband.

Makin’ Groceries by Kathryn M. Hearst. I’m a bit biased towards authors writing about Louisiana and the bayous, but this was a really fun tale – a nice mix of myth and perversion with a Cajun twist.

I won't go through it story by story, but as a whole and to put it plainly, It is a blast to read.

I'm a fan of most types of horror (both film and book) and I love watching horror film anthologies (I'm looking at you, "Darknet", "Mirrors", "VHS", "Trick R Treat"), "Bad Neighborhood" fits in the same category. You get a wide swatch of different writing and horror styles but they all share a common cohesion that makes progress through the book a really fun experience.

I won this in a Twitter competition from one of the authors.

It is presented well. Fox Emm does a good job of the editing, there are no noticeable errors worth mentioning, and it's formatted well. I remember liking a couple of the stories. I enjoyed Intruder by Hugh Warren, a standout because of the style.

I just can't recommend the book on the whole, because it doesn't stand out. I read without being grasped. It was something to do, rather than something I wanted to do.

So, not a good review, but not a bad one. I suppose having nothing of merit to say says as much about as I need.

If you are a fan of books that delve into the more gory aspects then I highly recommend this. Some stories may not live up to the expectation but overall the book is a solid choice for sitting down and reading a few stories at a time.

I am not huge on writing reviews, nor will my review be that in depth as some of the others. For the price of what is basically a coffee you can purchase it and find out yourself, who knows you might enjoy it.

I had a great time picking this book up and reading 1-3 stories per sitting in short bursts as I made my way through the whole book. :)
