Passion for Weird Tales was an alright read for what it is. What I liked: The first two stories, Spring Heeled Jack and Year of the Man Eater were pretty well written and interesting enough. They had genuine plot development and a surprise twist at the end. I also enjoyed the final story, The Resurrection Spell. It had an emotional level none of the other stories really managed to achieve. What I didn't like: I thought The Hand of God and Shamaggedon! were both terrible stories and had pretty offensive content. The latter was just gross and read like a b-rated horror movie. I definitely found plenty of typos and errors throughout all the stories, so perhaps a little more could have been spent in that area. I also didn't really care for the essays before the stories; they were all kind of the same thing. Overall, Passion for Weird Tales wasn't a bad read for something that only takes an hour or so. I would be interested to check out other books in their Passion series. *Note: I received this book and a cup of coffee for free from Green Gecko.*
