Journey Home- Up until the last page, this seemed like a pretty standard zombie story; hell, it was a little of the same old same old...until you get to the ending. The ending is pretty solid and left with a great `Oh crap' moment. However, there was a little confusion I had with the ending, and it had to do with some of the previous dialogue in the story, which contradicted the ending in a minor way. I have a feeling the author created this great ending, and neglected to edit out some of the parts in the story, the parts that contradicted the ending. Because he didn't edit out those parts, it left me a little confused, and because of that flaw, I'm going to give the story a 4 instead of a 5.
Journey Home- 4 stars
George- Now this is damn good! This is a great short story about a man named George and his encounter with a creature...I'm not gonna say too much in fear of spoiling anything but this story was excellent. It was well written and had some great and disturbing visuals.
George- 5 stars
Fight Night!- Not a bad story. The characters were good and the overall story wasn't a bad read. The story was well written, although the storyline itself was fun but average.
Fight Night!- 3
Online Apocalypse- Hot damn! Now that was a zombie story I could sink my teeth into. This story has a real kick to it and it is a great, well-written story with an excellent ending. Perfect, flawless little short story here.
Online Apocalypse 5!
Maniac Motorist- This was a great story with a slightly disturbing plot and characters. The ending, for me, was a little predictable but it was a great story nonetheless. Solid read.
Maniac Motorist- 5
The Du Lacy Curse- This was a pretty good story. I liked the plot, it was very well written and I really enjoyed reading the final story in the book. The author's writing seems to improve the deeper you get into the book. Again, the ending was a little predictable for me this time, but it's still a very good story.
The Du Lacy Curse- 5
Overall, this is a pretty damn good collection of short stories and the writing seems to improve the deeper you delve into the book. I really like how unexpected all of these stories were. Usually, I'm pretty good for guessing the ending (and for maybe 1 or 2 of the stories, I was right on the nose) but some of the stories in this anthology really surprised me, showed me something new, and something new and fresh always gets huge points in my book. I also liked how diverse these stories were in their content, yet the collection of stories as a whole seemed to bond well together. My personal favourite was Online Apocalypse, it was probably one of the best zombie short stories I've read in a long time.
I highly recommend this collection of short horror stories to any fans of good horror; this is some pretty damn good stuff.
So, a new collection from a new author. Six short stories in a well put together book of around 60 pages. This is a varied little collection ranging from horror to real-life tales. The stories are all well-written & edited, showcasing a new kid on the block in the genre.
The style is easy & uncomplicated. The stories are well thought out & clear.
The stand outs for me include Journey Home, which is an original take on the zombie genre. And, Fight Night, which is reads like an autobiographical story.
Many of the tales contain a twist & I look forward to seeing what Mr Huggins come up with next. From this collection, he could go in any direction, I suspect real-life stories might be his genre...
