I liked it a lot due to the various stories and every read had you guessing as to what was going to happen. The last story actually creep ed me out and that doesn't happen often. Ha ha. Over all I really enjoyed the various stories!

Wonderful anthology. Every story is very readable and should give you a good case of the willies if read after dark. A great way to spend an hour or two in front of the fire.

Really good short stories

I really liked this collection of stories. Some had a twist and a couple down right creepy scary. Def worth the read. Not so short stories. Long enough to get great detail and a feel for the storyline. 178 pages in all. Searching for more from these authors.

This book has a nice touch of horror and a bit of suspense, which I think is great for a free book. It is also LendMe so you can share this great book with friends.

LOVED IT

I really enjoyed reading these stories and agree that most were quite chilling. I could feel the desperation of the characters and felt almost sad while reading the zombie stories. I personally liked The Distillery the most -maybe because the ending just stuck with me...

Some of the stories truly creeped me out, and this is while reading them in daylight. Cargo and The Distillery were my two favorite stories. In Cargo, the author shows how desolate and bleak the world is, and even has a character blow his brains out over the hopelessness of his situation. In The Distillery the hope of survival is dashed ruthlessly; but even more horrific is how the reader knows an innocent baby will die at the mouths of the ravenous ghouls; along with showing the reader who the true monsters are.

Short stories, just a taste of some creepy tales. My favorite was the last tale about basements and crawlspaces.

Some of them are slow in the beginning and some of them end too abruptly. I did find a few good ones, however.
