I'll be concentrating on reviewing Halloween themed book thru the month of October for the second year running so feel free to "see all my reviews" most recently if you're of a like mind and am looking for some spooky stuff this time of year.
"Darkly Dreaming in Black Waters" by Jason Andrew was one of my favorite stories in this anthology. Definitely modern Lovecraftian but the setting (captured WWII German submarine) left me in the mind of Rod Serling's old Twilight Zone series. I'm sure I'll be coming back to this story again and again.
"A Mother's Love" by John Peters just blew me away. Such vivid imagery. Mother pulling her child out of the pumpkin. A metaphor for giving birth? The ending took my breath away.
"Somebody's Daughter" by Angela Bodine was another stand-out. People do some pretty crazy things to their bodies in the name of fashion / for the sake of publicity. For example, the man who recently set the Guinness Book of World Records for getting 1,200 piercings done all at once. "Somebody's Daughter" is a story of bizarre body modification that really sets the gears turning. How far will people go? One mother is about to find out... Can't wait to read more from Angela.
I will keep this anthology in my Kindle collection, as I plan to read this again and again. I would recommend this book to my friends, especially friends that are fans of Death Metal music and Horror film. The monsters and madmen contained in this volume are satisfactory inspiration for the insane imagination.
Honourable mentions include:
'Worms in the walls of my mind' by G.K Hayes - a stomach turning and thought provoking flash fiction.
'Until I come again' by Justin Gustainis - a beautifully written little guilty pleasure for fans of Bram Stoker.
'Origin Story' by Christopher Hawkins - a nice dark take on superhero lore with some twisted humour.
'Untouchable' by Amanda C. Davis - a chilling flash piece that shows a different angle on some well worn horror territory.
'Hi Ted' by David Bischoff - dark humour at its finest.
'All Cry' by Patricia Russo - the actions of the characters in this atmospheric piece really make you wonder what you would do in a similar situation.
'A mother's love' by John Peters - I don't normally like stories written in present tense, but this dark tale is well written and carries a satisfying punch.
My favourite story of the anthology goes to 'Revivified' by Maria Alexander. I made the mistake of reading this story late at night before going to bed and I found it very hard to make it upstairs after reading it! Even now, several days after finishing the anthology, this story is still haunting me. I too would like to see this tale expanded into something longer, as another reviewer mentioned.
I highly recommend Night Terrors II. With so many excellent stories you are bound to be entertained. I got the kindle version and it was great to read a story or two on my phone when I could grab five minutes. The only problem was, the stories are so good, I had to tear myself away.
