I am not going to bother giving a synopsis since the title says it all.
I have been a horror fan since I was six years old and watched Salem’s Lot through my fingers. I don’t scare that easily anymore and I am often left disappointed in books or movies. That’s not the case with these stories though. This collection is a perfect example of less being more. Some of these stories gave me goose pimples by being subtle. It didn’t take 400 pages or overt terror, but instead they were horror stories that were human and thought provoking too. I laughed and even cried reading some (okay I was a blubbering idiot reading Stony’s Boneyard by Glenn Chadbourne & Holly Newstein). I won’t give a list of my favorites from the collection since I just finished reading it. Tomorrow my favorites may be different after I have had some time to digest them. I absolutely recommend this to fellow horror fans and even to those who don’t normally read the genre because it’s a great introduction to horror.
