Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was an anthology that I can't recommend enough. This is a very well put together set of 27 stories, one for each letter of the alphabet and a bonus story, and each having to do with a particular phobia. It was great to read an anthology where every story was well thought out, and very good. It is also fun to see the different approaches that each writer brings to his or her story. While all of them were excellent, three stories stood out to me in particular. In Pteronophobia, G.R. Yeates uses his signature style to envelop the reader in a story with prose that is as beautifully written as it is nightmarish. With Dementophobia, Emile-Louis Tomas Jouvet uses his elegant sense of storytelling to give the reader an idea of what insanity may be like. And in Hagiophobia, Tracie McBride draws the reader in with a realistic portrayal of brutality that causes mental scars that never heal. I am looking forward to anything else that the editor of this collection, Dean M. Drinkel produces. Very highly recommended.

Hellraiser asked the Question "What's your pleasure?", well that would be telling. Phobophobia an anthology of 27 short stories asks the questions "what's your fear?" If you have been paying attention then you will all know what my main fears are. Thankfully it doesn't look as though any nuns have made there way into this anthology. However what you do get is an A-Z of fears, plus a bonus story from Steven Savile & Steve Lockley.

Edited by Dean M. Drinkel, Phobophobia certainly look like another first class production from the good folks over at Dark Continents Publishing.

A is for Aquaphobia : Aqua Mortis by Adrian Chamberlin

It's down to an old Ginger Nuts favourite, Adrian Chamberlin, to get the ball rolling. His Story Aqua Mortis a grimy tale set in the golden age of witch finders, has a village and the Witchfinder in the grip of a witch's curse. Adrian has done a sterling jog capturing the feel of such classic movies as Captain Kronos. A well written tale with a good pay off, this story sets the bar high for the rest of the anthology.

B is For Bibliophobia : Words To The Wise by Paul Kane

This is an odd tale. Samuel Kellerman, is afraid of the written word, so afraid in fact he is convinced that books are out to kill him. This could easily have turned to be a silly mess of a story, however what you get here is a rather funny, yet twisted tale of fear. I really enjoyed this story, imagine if the Phantom Tollbooth, was written for adults, yes that's how good this story was.

C is for Coulrophobia : The Clown Cemetery by Sean Sweeney

This story takes the thread of humour started by Paul Kane's previous story and ranks it up to max.

This anthology gives readers a dark ride into the life of a person living with everyday and not so everyday phobias. I would love to choose a favorite story but they are ALL my favorite. I will let you choose. They are all brilliantly written and in each story you feel as though you are suffering from the subject phobia. Also in every story, you find yourself sympathizing for the key character in the story and in some cases, hoping that bad things happen.

Definitely check this out!!! I'll be reading this one again.
