Overview

One Buck Horror presents classically-styled tales of modern horror from some of the most exciting writers working in the genre today! Each volume in this critically-acclaimed anthology series delivers quick, sharp thrills that are perfect for reading at home or on the go.

In this volume...

Children shouldn't walk alone at night, not when Pete's around. But not all is what it seems. Pete has a job to do, and in "Helpers" by David Steffen, some jobs require a little assistance.

In "Home" by Augusto Corvalan, pay a visit to a suburban family that's normal in every way...as long as they keep their masks on and their dark urges at bay.

A new arrival is not so joyous for a father who has reason to believe that the child is not only not his own, but something not quite human, in "Child of Dirt" by John F. D. Taff.

Leisa K. Parker plays "The Catman Blues", in which the owner of a nightclub is visited by a strange musician whose primal tunes leave blood and death in their wake.

Family trips go to dark places when duct tape and shovels come into play, but has this last trip gone too far? Find out in "Vacation" by J. Tanner.

Greg Simpson awakes one morning to find his own head sitting on the night table next to his bed. His struggle for sanity becomes a struggle just to stay alive in "Off With His Head" by Mark Budman.

Be sure to check out the other volumes in this ongoing anthology series, and watch for new volumes coming soon!

    Volume Three Not On Par With Earlier Volumes

    Okay, so I have to admit that this time out I was personally disappointed with the latest volume from One Buck Horror, but it's far from making me give up the faith in them. Again, in my opinion it's the nature of the beast when it comes to collections and anthologies. For the most part you usually get a mix of the good and the bad, and I think it's the One Buck Horror approach of only putting a collection of aroung half a dozen stories together at a time that helps keep them fresh. I very much look forward to their next collection, as well as One Buck Zombies, which is due out very soon!

    Another great collection of creepy tales from One Buck Horror!

    This issue of One Buck Horror is a little different than the past two. Just like the past two issues, Volume Three is smart, old-fashioned, quality horror. It contains a few stories much shorter than those of past volumes. I didn't get the feeling the stories were held together by a common theme (Volume One had children main characters, Volume Two was full of creature stories). My favorite out of the 6 stories is "Child of Dirt" by John F.D. Taff, about a man who'd be smart to ask for a paternity test when his girlfriend tells him she's pregnant. There's a "Rosemary's Baby" feel to Taff's story. It leaves the reader screaming to the main character "It's not yours!" and wishing he'd run for the hills. It left some very creepy, haunting visuals and had excellent character development. "Home" by Augusto Corvalan was another story out of this bunch that really stood out with excellent description of a family trying so hard to be something they're not. I've enjoyed every issue of One Buck Horror, it's worth much more than the .99 it sells for, and I'll definitely be buying future volumes.
