This book is great if you like horror stories. My favorite story is called 'Jikininki', it's about a man whose japanese wife moves in with him, and this old lady creature visits every night and makes weird sounds. Most of the stories in this book have great twists to them and will hold the attention.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

John Pelan is known for enjoying the bloodier side of horror, not only with the Darkside series of anthologies but also his Splatterpunk books. A Walk on the Darkside fits right in with this gorey tradition. Over 21 stories written by some of the industries best, we see all the dark, twisted sides of humanity. Like so many anthologies, many of the stories are average, with about five of them being spectacular, and about four that were really poorly done. Even the worst story still isn¿t that bad, though, and the rest keep the pages turning quickly. ¿ Something in the Air¿ by Michael Laimo is my far and away favorite, and well worth checking out. Eerie and haunting, this story stuck with me well after I was done reading it. ¿ Fairy Fort¿ by Peadar O¿ Guilin is a dark and disturbing look at the wee folk and being careful for what you wish for. It¿s also well worth reading. Over all, this is a good solid anthology and a worthy addition to any horror and/or anthology collection. Recommended.Was this review helpful?
