Overview

Maximum-strength horror fiction.

Indications:For fast-acting relief from peace of mind. Provides a daily dose of terror guaranteed to induce thrills, chills, and shocks. When taken as an antidote to the ordinary, stories alleviate feelings of security and the belief that what you can't see can't hurt you.

Dosage:Stories deliver powerful jolts to the imagination, stimulate feelings of uneasiness, and suppress the benign appearance of the everyday. To be administered every two to three pages in continuous readings. Most effective at night, when the house is still and the darkness outside encroaches.

Active ingredients:Abominable monstrosities, dark and stormy nights, demons, evil incarnate, fog-shrouded streets, malevolent children, psychopaths, reanimated corpses, and things that go bump in the night.

Warnings: Do not exceed personal threshold levels for fright. Do not take if weak of heart, frail of constitution, or easily disturbed by the unpredictable eruption of the irrational into the normal order. Not recommended for those who identify too closely with characters and their inescapable dooms. Overdose can lead to sleepless nights, paranoia, nightmares, or general feelings of uneasiness.

Stories may prove addictive.

The Barnes & Noble Review
Get Your Daily Dose of Terror

The horror short-short is not an easy form to master, but more than 100 of the genre's critically acclaimed authors and hottest up-and-comers have taken a stab at it in Horrors!: 365 Scary Stories, a mammoth anthology that contains a short horror tale for every day of the year. Reviewing individual tales seems pointless — there's going to be plenty here for everyone's taste. Even if you enjoy only one third of the tales here, you'll have more than 120 gems. How many anthologies can you say that about? Steve Rasnic Tem, William F. Nolan, Tom Piccirilli, Yvonne Navarro, Peter Atkins, Brian Hodge, and 167 others give you short, sharp shocks — but the big question on everybody's mind is, Which author got the most slots? This book has been years in the making, and with a high percentage of the horror community making some appearance in it, everyone's been wondering who would end up with the most stories. The winner is the thrilling Brian McNaughton, whose collection The Throne of Bones was one of this past year's best offerings. His baker's dozen of contributions to Horrors! may be a lot shorter, but they still pack a frightening punch. How did your other favorite authors make out in the Horrors! table of contents?

    Worth reading through

    This book was a bit on the boring side but there were some excellent stories hidden between the pages. Thoses stories were so unique that they were by far intriguing. Some sloppy writing yes, but worth a once over for the slighty brilliant few.

    Does it even deserve one star

    That was the worse book ever, out of all 365 short stories, which I thought would be really cool, only about two of them were good.

    UHhhhh

    I just think that Stephen King would have done better. I mean it was over and over. The same thing was said again and again. I mean I really liked some of the stories, don't get me wrong but, it was too many and over and over the same thing was said. O well. You can't make all of them an absolutely wonderful book. Better luck next time.

    Extremely Repetitive

    I'm actually suprised at all of the five star reviews that this compilation has received. I bought the book a couple of weeks ago and after four or five "fits and starts" I have given up. I've only managed to get about a quarter of the way through. The stories are just way too repetitive. I know that it's hard to write a good story in the page and a half that seems to allotted for each story but I just felt that most of the stories are based on the same four or five themes. You've got your vampire theme, your serial killer theme, your ghost theme, well, you get the idea. I did like a very few of the stories (for example where the character finds the coin and glass vial in his garage) but for the most part they were pretty weak and uninspired.

    LOTSA GREAT QUICK READS HERE HORROR FANS!

    I picked this one up some time ago -- it's perfect for those instances when you have a few minutes to read, but don't care to delve into an entire novel. The stories vary alot, and although I was left scratching my head over a couple of them, all in all it's a great anthology with crisp writing and chills galore!
