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!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
