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.Read more ›
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.
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.
