I cannot believe all the star power that is in The Horror Zine's WHAT FEARS BECOME.

Here we have fiction by Bentley Little, Joe R. Lansdale, Piers Anthony, Ramsey Campbell, Graham Masterton, Elizabeth Massie (who doesn't love her), Melanie Tem, Scott Nicholson, Ron Malfi (who can forget his novel SNOW), Conrad Williams and more, all in one book!

But as good as these best-sellering authors are, I am amazed by the talent of the unknowns, or should I say, the lesser-knowns. Christian A. Larsen's "Bast" is a truly frightening story about an angry cat. "A Bad Stretch of Road" by Dean H. Wild would make me afraid to drive on lonely highways. Jagjiwan Sohal's "Wandering Daniel" is a unique perspective on vampires, not done before, if you can believe that. "Smith Street" by Stephen Dare resembles something from Stephen King. "Methods of Divorce" by Philip Roberts has a fresh take on monsters. "The Product" by Bruce Memblatt and "Adelle's Night" by David K. Ginn are both extremely clever and surprising. And editor Jeani Rector gives us the ghost story titled "The House on Henley Way." All-in-all, there are over 30 stories packed in this meaty book.

There is some poetry in WHAT FEARS BECOME, and did you know that Joe R. Lansdale writes poetry? It's in this book, along with his fiction piece "Fish Night."

And then you have some very nice artwork interspaced throughout the book, all black and white, except for the strikingly scary cover, which is in color.

This is a really good book, packed with best-selling authors, and also packed with very effective scares. I highly recommend WHAT FEARS BECOME to anyone who enjoys horror, mystery, sci-fi and suspense. This book has it all.

Format: Paperback
There may be those horror addicts out there who love reading scary stories at bedtime and if so WHAT FEARS BECOME is just that resource. This generous book is rich in terrifying tales in the form of short stories, poems that haunt you, and an assortment of art that addresses the content or rather the atmosphere of the book. Compiled by the deft skills of editor Jeani Rector this collection of moments of fright includes excerpts from the best of the horror magazines - The Horror Zine - and in addition to previously published works it manages to unveil some frightening stories form famous and soon to be famous authors.

Whatever it is that starts our rather international and multicultural fascination with scary stories the authors of these stories and poems are in touch with that. Some of the stories contain a rather bizarre sick humor while others slog into treacherous climes that make us fear quicksand or death by other means equally as treacherous. How Rector decided to align these tales is anyone's guess, but whatever the evil force that inspired her to paste these moments together - works! Some of the stories are long, some very brief. Some are interspersed with black and white line drawings and illustrations by nine artists (very talented ones at that) and there is also a section of poetry. A little sample by Australian born American poet John Grey:


Its outer limbs
against the shake
of its dead leaves
as if a body had
just been cut down
and it wasn't until
late May that
the reluctant sun
finally burnt off
the thick chunks of ice
that shrouded
its vein-like roots.

I've always enjoyed short stories because they fit my busy lifestyle, enabling me to read an entire story on my lunch hour or in between projects. A quick fix for my ingrained reading habit... That's why I'm a big follower of the internationally popular, critically acclaimed online horror magazine, The Horror Zine, which was founded by editor Jeani Rector, with Dean H. Wild as assistant editor. Since I visit The Horror Zine on a regular basis to read short stories from the best horror writers in the business, you might imagine my delight when I found news of this exciting anthology on the website.

Quickly scanning the article for details of What Fears Become: An Anthology from The Horror Zine, I soon learned that Piers Anthony and Bentley Little, two of my favorite writers, are featured in it. Those horror masters deliver creepy twists and turns that make your eyes bleed...a true test of deep-rooted genius.

Reading on, I learned that another of my favorite authors Cheryl Kaye Tardif--although newer than the others--is also featured in this book. That's when I knew I had to grab a copy!

Thank God, with the Kindle I could start reading right away! And Wow--I was treated to the most weird, creepy, frightening tales imaginable; stories that would make Edgar Allan Poe turn over in his grave. I felt like I was in my own private Twilight Zone (with spooks creeping up on me from every side) as I gripped my e-Reader so hard I thought it might shatter like the bodies of so many of the characters in these dark fantasies.
