An anthology edited by Olivia F. Monteleone and Thomas F. Monteleone which definitely delivers on its promises of no zombies, no serial killers, no vampires, and no ghosts. Aims for the disturbingly original.
Ten years in the making, but highly recommended despite the delay between #5 and #6.
Not a single cheerful or uplifting story in the bunch (unless it was one of the three I didn’t understand), so I’ll call this a horror anthology. Includes tales by David Morrell, Steve Rasnic Tem, and Jack Ketchum. Twenty-two in all.
I won’t give away any of the plots, but there are some seriously good stories here.
Buy this book.
And on another topic:
I wasted a sales opportunity this Sunday.
Never gave real-time events the world was going through a thought, just went right into sale mode and didn’t get a single taker.
Half-price. Can’t get much better than that.
But there were lots and lots of football games on TV. People were still caught up in the Hurricane Matthew mess. And then there was the Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton debate.
No one had the time or inclination to buy a little science fiction e-book from someone they’d never heard of.
I’m not whining. Not really. Just trying to fix this in my memory so that next time I check what’s going on in the world before trying to sell books.
