Every single one of therm had punctuation, spelling and grammatical errors.
"The Brutality of Faith" many spelling and editing errors
Story jumped all over the place - difficult to stay focused
"Peril on the Sea" ended abruptly and made little sense.
In a couple of those stories it was extremely difficult to determine who was speaking and to whom.
Whoever edited this collection needs to go back to basic English class and pay attention!
Left me with no desire to read these "authors" further as I prefer clean, concise text that is clearly written and makes logical sense.
As the synopsis states, the stories are incredibly varied: horrific original tales, dark retellings of classic themes, thoughtful prose and vivid action narratives illustrating the ugly truths of humanity and belief systems and the things we worship as gods. And the demons we create.
Kitty Kane spins a tale like an elder telling stories to children of the dark things no one else will speak of.
Mark Lumby weaves a gruesome narrative, rich with fear and greed and ugly symbolism.
C.L. Raven offers up dark obsession.
And there is so much more.
Vampires, Werewolves, Demons, Gods, Ancient Powers, Modern Evils… it’s all here.
Wonderfully, thoughtfully crafted characters and stories await you within the pages.

All in all there wasn't a dud to be found though I did enjoy some more than others, but that is to be expected within any anthology. Highly recommended.
It's hard to single out particular stories but the two contributed by Mathew Cash (who also edited the collection) are solid pieces of mainstream horror and, if you read anthologies on a dip-in basis, try these first. The other must-read for those with strong stomachs is the characteristically and relentlessly bleak contribution from Christopher Law. A tale of an unnamed malevolence that destroys blameless lives because it can. I found it a disturbing metaphor for present day Britain.
