About the Author: Pete Kahle

I have been an avid reader of a wide variety of genre fiction since first reading 'SALEM'S LOT when I was years old After talking about writing my own novels for over three decades I finally kicked myself in the ass and began putting down the stories that have been living in my headMy first novel THE SPECIMEN was released through CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing in April I am.

    Updated 14NOV2016I'll probably be working my way through this behemoth for years to come and will leave reviews of individual stories as I go not necessarily in orderAs I'm a contributor to this anthology I'm not going to rate stories but rather comment on themDeath to Trees Jeff Strand Not so much a story as an amusing trifle and a fitting way to kick off the anthologyConversations Kill Tim Waggoner Very well written short story with an interesting premise that kept me engaged and guessing The final reveal wasn't all I had hoped for but overall a satisfying storyMolting Robert Essig A nice slice of body horror delivered with finesseBaptism Kit Powers A small but potent dose of weirdnessA Church in the Middle of Nowhere Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason A rather unusual tale simultaneously familiar and strange This reads like a fever dream and that's a compliment I wish it had been longer but it works uite fine as is

    The best word I can use to describe this anthology of dark fiction would be unexpected There are surprises at every turn These stories aren't all meant to induce full blown terror; some of them will creep up on you uietly Those types of stories tend to be my favoritesAll the stories were good but these were the ones that stood out to me the mostEvergreenGorgeous descriptive language depicting nature's beauty with a twistHearts in ReverseHumans and monsters live side by side in a semi post apocalyptic world not completely unlike our own An interesting take on the 'monster' genre depicting the many depths of human emotion discrimination fear unconditional loveShe Called Him SkyThis story reads like a twisted fairy tale unexpectedly poignant poeticOur Lady of Sloth and Scarlet IvoryThis story had me intrigued as the background of the story was slowly revealed It explores the psychological physical effects of a woman's prolonged captivity Harrowing and resonantDead GodsThis caught my attention and had me intrigued throughout Magical realism with a slow descent into darkness and then out of it The story kept turning and twisting into something completely unexpected and I really enjoyed itArborEATumA sinister story steeped in religious symbolism fanaticism Could not stop turning the pagesOverall this was a highly enjoyable anthology that I highly recommend

    What can I say about this beautiful bodacious beast of a book?I haven't been this impressed with an anthology since Kirby McCauley's DARK FORCES800 pages47 storiesSomething for every taste and not a single sour apple in the basketTales gathered together from the best in the genre from the old guard to the young gunsThis is the anthology by which all others will be measured one that will please every horror fan and have you filling your shelves with the works of the authors you discovered or rediscovered within it's pagesAnd then you'll fill a shelf with the works of James Newmanbecause anyone who could inspire such an incredible response is obviously someone you'll want to get to knowHighest possible recommendation

    I'm really glad I was reading the electronic version of this book; the print version would crush a reader's legs Story after story 47 in all and most were good to very good There are a few that are outstanding and a few that left me feeling meh but overall a good anthology to read for the season Additionally the proceeds of the sales of this book benefit a well liked author of this genre That alone was enough for me to buy the book

  5. Rebecca McNutt Rebecca McNutt says:

    Widowmakers is a great Halloween read even though it's almost Christmas Dark horror mixes with comedy in this book and creates some really impressive stories

  6. Nev Murray Nev Murray says:

    Normally I like to give a little bit of depth to my reviews telling a little about the story and what it is like To attempt to do that with this anthology would mean a review that would be longer than some novels I've read recentlyPutting it uite simply you will not see another book like this for a very long time if ever It's a benefit anthology for James Newman He had a fight with a tree earlier this year and lost uite dramatically Given the fact that he is known as one of the nicest horror authors you could ever meet some of his buddies got together and submitted stories and poems to fill this book with the proceeds going to James to help with medical expensesAnd fill it they did Over 800 pages with 47 stories all by different authors make this one brick of a book and one that will stay with you for a very long time We are talking about the best in the business in horror and dark fiction all in one place giving you the reading experience of your lifeIt would be unfair of me to try and single out specific stories as being better than others because there aren't any Every word written in this book will thrill you and scare you till your heart's content If you like horror and dark fiction then this is a must buy for your shelf Or at least put it on a table cause it might cause your shelf to sag a bitCongratulations also must go to Pete Kahle for pulling this together and editing it in such a fantastic wayThis book is a masterpiece 15 stars

    I have enjoyed all the stories in this collection and there are a few standouts I particularly enjoyed Dead Gods by James Moore and AborEATum by Evans LightA great collection that I highly recommend to all horror lovers out there

  8. Leah Polcar Leah Polcar says:

    I do not really understand all the glowing reviews this anthology has received I really wanted to like it given that some of the proceeds go to helping an author whose name I currently blank on recover from injuries sustained from a falling tree branch Which sounds sort of like I am making this up a I review but I am not and the guy seems sweet enough and it was like a tree sized branch so it was no joke Unfortunately I thought it was basically terrible I am a huge fan of short stories and read anthologies like there is no tomorrow so I expect to have to take some bad to read some good but here the bad far outweighs the occasional average There are one or two decent tales here so I will bump this up a star but overall finishing this became an ordeal Sorry author dude I wish you well I think your friends are sweet to put this together but I'll pass

  9. Brandy Brandy says:

    The stories in this collection range from a couple of pages to many pages I think I skipped 2 stories at the most That left a lot to read If you love horror stories are looking from some short reading material I'd recommend this book highly For the most part the shorter bits were the best Have written down every author whose story I liked that was not already on my 'to read' list

  10. Nancy A Nancy A says:

    Really creepy This one was good because there were so many I definitely got my money's worth I have to say this was the second anthology one of the stories I had read first as a stand alone then in another audio collection before I found it here There's a good reason it's been published so much ArborEATumby Evans Light is so uniueto epitomize the hypocrisy and realistic attitude of the self righteous The christian readers might find it in their nightmares Remember this is my personal review keep an open mind don't let me dissuade you from purchasing all comes out well in the end The others were uite well written and several had new themes with surprise endings I'd highly recommend it for mature readers especially
