Book Review

I received an ARC from Dan Alatorre in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

This is a fantastic compilation of horror and ghost stories and I would definitely recommend picking up a copy to get you in the mood for Halloween.

I enjoyed all the stories very much but my personal favourites were:

The Corner Shop by Dan Alatorre (The ending is just so foul.. but in a good way!)

The Right Time To Move On by Jennifer Ruff. (Oh my!)

Devils’s Hollow by Adele Marie Park. Horror absolute, fantastic story.

The Bloody Dogwood Tree by Dabney Farmer – Loved the black humour in this.

The Haunting of William by Robbie Cheadle. Oh!! What a tale!

What If by Geoff Le Pard. If you’re a writer you will relate and love this so much!

Ice Cream by Geoff Le Pard. This author should be locked up. What an macabre imagination.

Ghosts of Tupedo by Sharon E. Cathcart. This is a bit different, (think Elvis Presley) and that’s why I enjoyed it so much.

The poetry prologue and epilogue were a lovely touch and both excellent.

My rating 5 stars – highly recommended.
