    Not as advertised

    The synopsis of this book describes an entirely different collection. None of the stories described are in this book. The ones that are in the book are mediocre at best.

    A terrific collection of short horror. It’s really difficult to go wrong with any book containing stories by Stephen King, Laird Barron, and Peter Straub. However, my favorite was Final Verse by Chet Williamson, who I was unfamiliar with before reading this. I can’t wait to read more of his stuff. Likewise, both Anna Taborska’s Little Pig and Brian Hodge’s Roots and All were stellar. A first-rate collection for any fan of horror.
