A World of Horror 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
JimmyTamTam More than 1 year ago
This is an anthology with horror or weird short stories written by writers from all around the world (aptly named, WORLD OF HORROR!). What a great idea and a great execution. The book is beautifully designed and there’s an artist with exceptional old school art. The stories are intense, raw. Some of them funny, bizarre, but all well written and thoroughly interesting to read these points of view from all over the world! Good job to editors and writers involved!

This whole book of bringing together authors from around the world was an exceptional idea, and beautifully executed both in terms of story content and in visual appeal (nod to artist Steve Lines!). There’s a great variety of stories and tones, exploring myths and fears and tastes from 22 authors (in 18 countries, with a few countries represented twice). I loved Rhea Daniel in India, and Kaaron Warren in Australia, and David McGroarty in Scotland, and Suyi Davies Okungbowa in Nigeria, and so many more. Great book all around, and very much recommended!
