The story of "George" written by DK Cassidy, quickly draws the reader in. Written from a child's perspective, you soon realize that something is amiss in this child's life. The short story leaves the reader drawing many conclusions! I look forward to the next installment for sure!

When I picked up Shades of Fear, I wasn't sure what to expect. *Warning* Don't read this before bedtime. I started this book before I went to bed. My intention was to pace myself and read a few stories a night. But once I started, I couldn't stop. I had to keep reading, story after story.
Each story is so unique, yet they all deliver on the different "shades" of what we fear. The description and detail of the stories had me holding my breath with each turn of the page. It was like I was sixteen again and reading Stephen King under the covers.
I felt like I was right there with the characters, trying to survive their fears.
Highly recommend!

A great collection of individual stories, well written and presented, covering subjects from north to south in breadth and depth.
It was a very refreshing book and a relaxing way to spend a day, as I glided from one story to the next, some scarier than others and some more disturbing and graphic than others. I particularly enjoyed the story of young George, who touched my heart because of the underlying reasons for his actions. I could mention all the stories, as there was not one I didn't enjoy.

I must say that I would really like to see this being followed up because of the sheer enjoyment and pace of the material inside this scary cover...I am just glad I didn't read it at night by candlelight. A highly recommended book.

“Shades of Fear” is an anthology of stories about fear in its many forms. When reading a collection, I never know what to expect. It can very easily go wrong very quickly. One story might be wonderful while the next is so-so. I did not experience this with “Shades of Fear.” Each of the stories was well-written and enticing from beginning to end. They all dealt with different ideas of what fear is, and I think that’s what made it such an interesting anthology. More importantly, as a set, it felt cohesive, which is very difficult to pull off. One of my favorite stories was “George” as it had a nice twist at the end that I never saw coming. Overall a really well-done set of stories that any fan of fear can enjoy!

Lovecraft once wrote the oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. And now we know why.

From twenty-two very disturbed minds, come tales of madness and terror that should not be read before bedtime.
The highlights are DK Cassidy's "George" and "T209" by Shannon McLoud, both of which are exemplary tales that demonstrate that fear is in the mind as much as it in the monsters.

If you enjoyed "The Mammoth Book of Horrors..." series, or the works of ST Joshi, then you will love these short stories.

I absolutely loved it. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. Each of the stories definitely have that make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck feel to them in some way or another. I would highly recommend it to others.

Simply amazing. I've always liked horror stories, movies, video games, the like, but this is so out of the norm most of the time, it was phenomenal. This anthology shows how different fear can be for different people. I would and have recommended it to friends and family. It is simply the best compilation I have ever read.

I am a huge fan of horror(Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Robert Rodriquez). You can add D.L. Scott to that list "Shades of Fear" had me saying,"Gosh!!" This tale was gripping and had me looking around the corner. I made sure t not read it without a light on. Shades' plot moved along creepily, and the characters were quite lifelike. It was difficult not to be engrossed in this book. If you are a fan of horror or a good read, "Shades of Fear" is your book.
