Editorial Reviews

Review

"...heavy atmosphere and an almost palpable air of terror hanging over every page... This book is full of scary and disturbing stuff... Priory is a well-conceived setting and the five writers do a very good job of fleshing it out." - Examiner.com
 
"Think Jonestown with a side dish of Cthulhu." - Tentacle Books
 
"...creepily claustrophobic as we descend into the tunnels beneath the Priory." - British Fantasy Society
 
"Each author so perfectly captures the atmosphere the others set out to achieve, that it's difficult to remember this was written by more than one person." - Zero Signal Magazine
 
"... a thoroughly enjoyable read... The Outsiders is a mystery that knows how to flirt heavily with science fiction. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys either genre" - Long and Short Reviews
 
"Within the pages of "The Outsiders" you will find yourself coming closer to this deity than perhaps you'd wish. Outwardly, the gated community of Priory appears to be the residence to aspire to - safe, quiet and filled with friendly people. Inwardly, it's a commune more horrific than that led by Charles Manson!" - Linear Reflections

All separate--all interconnected--all born from Priory...

I'm not a huge fan of Lovecraftian-style fiction but I was curious about how a handful of different authors would handle writing a short story stemming from a single theme. Each story was unique and well written, and could be enjoyed as a single unit as well as a part of the whole. My two favorites were: "Precious Things" by V.H. Leslie, and "Stolen from the Sea" by Stephen Bacon--each one chilling enough to send shivers up my spine.

I would definitely consider re-reading this book in the future!

Review: THE OUTSIDERS

An extraordinary, seamless, collection with a shared-theme, shared-world--a wonderfully Lovecraftian world, a theme unafraid to reveal the very dark underside of the Lovecraftian Mythos. Five great authors--Gary Fry, James Everington, Stephen Bacon, V.H. Leslie, Rosanne Rabinowitz--collude to provide an incredible story set about one rural English gated community, Priory, a community unlike any other, a community with one focus and one purpose. THE OUTSIDERS is Lovecraftian, yes; but the stories also manage to tell a lot about human nature and interaction, about human fear of the unknown and the perceived "different," about self-loathing turned inside out and projected against "the other." This book deserves a wide and encompassing readership.

The thing I enjoyed most about this book was the cohesion between the authors. The writing was very good,though the story was rather fantastical. The characters were,for the most part,kind of creepy. Even the more "normal" among them seemed off to me. I couldn't give this five stars because the premise was just a bit too unbelievable. Although it is a good question: what do we really know about that realm and those creatures that live in it?
All in all,a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Interesting anthology about a cult of squid worshipers. Each story is written by a different author, giving different twists on the subject. All the stories fit nicely together.

All are well written. I liked this one.

Creepy and scary, but I knew where it was going most of the time. The Outsiders features a truly scary cult/religious community in the middle of a typical suburban world. The other-worldly hover and slinks beneath the surface. At one point I had to race ahead because it was so fraught I could not take it. Yes! I really raced ahead!

It’s no easy task to be able to twine stories together to create a cohesive tale. Told by 5 very different authors, you’ll find yourself being mesmerized as each story winds through the streets of Priory like tentacles reaching out attached to a common core. Each is its own entity, but together they make a whole. As the title states this is a story of outsiders, those who don’t fit in for one reason or another. Come in; take a peek of the going-ons in this tight-knit little community. Start your visit with Kevin Lucia’s forward; here he will introduce you to the community.

Gary Fry opens with The Subprime, here we meet Lee a young up and coming lad in the mortgage business. Lee has a problem though, he has a conscience. Feeling he no longer fits in with the company’s policies he is ready to call it quits. But, Mr. Philips, his boss has other plans. He invites Lee to dinner at his home in Priory, where Lee finds out the terrible truth of what happens to those who resist conformity.

In Impossible Colours by James Everington we read of Michala, a woman of mixed ethnicity. Working as a community officer in the town of Exham it’s hard fitting in when surrounded by a sea of white faces, but she manages. Shortly after a confrontation with the town racist, he is found dead in Priory; suicide they say. Michala isn’t buying it; there is something unsettling about Priory and the people within.

Ryan and his wife are active members in the community of Priory. Ryan solicits donations and recruits new members for the compound. His wife works for the church and closely with Erich the founder of their church. All was fine until the day their son died. Stephen Bacon’s Stolen from the Sea is a story of loss.
