review at the end of it, I m going to flash review story by story and drop a final rating at the end As always, I will leave my story out of the review process, reviewing everyone else only.The reason Each and every person in this anthology has worked their backside off to be involved I ve had the pleasure of working with several of them, in close proximity, for the past several months I m proud to call them fellow authors, TOC sharers, JEA alumni and, most importantly, friends and literary family To coup them together in one review, with their ruthless dedication and hard work, just isn t fair.Part One can be read on my blog now It includes stories and poems by Essel Pratt, Alex S Johnson, Mathias Jansson, Jeremy Maddux, Lance Carbuncle, Toneye Eyenot, Lisa Dabrowski, Mark Woods, and Amanda Lyons.Read Part One here Two is below I had to do this for space constraints I only have 20,000 characters on Goodreads.All Manner Of Sin Toneye EyenotAnother short poem, the second from Eyenot in this anthology Whilst I preferred the first effort, this poem was a lot darker and the meaningmacabre Basically, a man walks into a church and starts sinning in a variety of waysFleeting and horrific, with a deep vein of humour, this poem definitely has a dark heart to it There s no doubt the actions would send you to hell the poem was originally submitted to a Hell anthology and this poem is well written and creative I could totally picture the character doing everything in front of the priests Verdict A short, amusing and, in the right frame of mind, a deeply psychotic poem I laughed, but the dark undertones bring us a unique and terrifying piece of work Great stuff.Grailith Susan SimoneFrom a deeply, dark tale to one simplistic and horrifying, RFC goes from strength to strength Many fears have been mentioned and poked at, and Grailith provides yet another Many people, including myself, see our beds as sanctuary, forbidden ground Basically, being attacked in them is a nightmare come true for many humans I know, for a fact, if I woke up and noticed someone in the room, looking at me, that would be me shuffling off the mortal coil It s such a petrifying premiseAn unnamed woman wakes up to find a black creature, Grailith, sitting on top of her Confused and afraid she gets into a short conversation with the demon, one she describes as black fire The conversation becomes obsessive andwell, I don t want to ruin the ending for you.This is a short story, only four paragraphs or so, but it packs a solid punch The fear of being attacked in your bed is paramount, but soon takes a back seat to the fear of being crushed As Grailith explains his presence, the woman starts to realise some horrific truths This is a short story, but it drips with menace and evil Sometimes, horror doesn t need many words to get its point across, and Grailith is one of those Just one piece of advice, make sure you read everything in the story, it has a hell of a punchline Verdict Taut, tense, frightening, and somewhat poignant, this is a superb short story, an excellent example of flash fiction Would be at home in any horror anthology with smarts Rendezvous Stuart KeaneMy story, so exempt from review here Here s a brief outline for you thoughPaige is a woman scorned Discovering her husband is cheating on her, she takes him out to Lake Whisper, in the middle of nowhere, to exact her revenge When she gets there, she discovers that they aren t alone Someone else is at Lake Whisper, and doesn t take lightly to their presenceOut of Darkness Comes Life Michael FisherA Rejected compilation wouldn t complete without a serial killer story and we get one right here This is the first time I ve read Michael Fisher and his command of the English language is superb, creating tension and scares from simple and routine situations, the sign of a great writer Throw into the mix a resurrection story and a sly twist on the stalker motif, and you have a great fantasy action story.Thomas Butcher, aka The Ripper, is dead Gunned down, his corpse is thrown in the morgue and left to rot However, a higher being has different ideas The Ripper is resurrected, his mask fused to his skin, and he grows in height and strength On his exit from the morgue, he recruits a reluctantly willing fan Gutter as he seeks to complete unfinished business.This story is wonderful As I was reading this, I could imagine it unravelling on a screen in front of me Darkly humorous and satirical the fans forming a protest outside the morgue is one of many sly nods this takes the serial killer tale and twists it on its head The Ripper is so evil and demonic and his visage is described in such a way it keeps you captivated Gutter is a character in the story, but he s our avatar, we re drawn into the story and taken along for the ride in his place It s a clever technique from the author, one that immerses you in the story, which elevates a simple, yet smart serial killer story from normal to unique Verdict Wonderfully inventive and darkly funny, this is a casually unique take on the serial killer story, one with a subtle Clive Barker influence The Ripper is an exceptional creature a blend between Jack the Ripper and Freddy Krueger and like many in RFC, could very well have his own series of novels This is certainly one of thefun stories in the anthology, swapping out mood and darkness for humour and sly social winks, which creates a clever and unique action horror story You could say it s killer There Goes The Neighbourhood Jim GoforthSince Plebs, I ve been eager to read something else from this author TGTN is textbook Goforth sweary, sexual, violent, perverse in several different ways, and darkly funny Oh, and relevant, despite being a horror story It also addresses certain protocols within schools in a way that, well, could stop bullying I vote we use this story as an anti bullying campaign right now.Lucina is the new girl in school, a Goth with an unusual cheery demeanour Bullied and reviled by the popular kids, but admired and lusted after by the horny boys in equal measure, she throws a party at her home to welcome everyone into her world When they arrive at the creepy house she resides in, not everything is as it seems Think a cross between Scream but actually scary and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, with a dribbling of Rob Zombie and the moral code of Battle Royale, and you re half way there TGTN is a phenomenal story, one that offers warning against bullying kids in school Looking different or being different doesn t make anybody less a person than you and social outcasting based on appearance Judging a book, or person, by their cover is never good, and this story tackles it in a unique, gory, and perverse way After this, you might just smile at the Goth chick walking down the street or resist abusing someone for their weight.Verdict Violent, gory, grotesque lube will never feel the same again , and twisted, it s like Rob Zombie crawled into our brain and mind raped us Then laughed, spat on us, and tossed the results into this book Or, in this case, Mr Goforth produced another sublime, phenomenal horror tale Plebs The Teenage Years, possibly Drift Todd MisuraAt first, I didn t know what to think of this story The chapter layout was a unique way of sectioning the events of the story, but it kind of threw me out of the loop for a bit Once I delved into the story though, it was quite a ride Of all the stories in RFC, this one was probably the most oppressive, but then again, the underlying message is too Consumerism it seems, in any form, is going to be our downfall.The narrator of the tale is a vigilante for hire, seeking out the scum of society After a late night job, he returns to his boat house and finds a black blob on the carpet, which injures him After much deliberation, he feeds the black blobbut it s hunger never stops It s not long until it s out of control and becomes a threat to humanity.The Blob Those two words were screaming at me for the duration of the story About halfway through, your brain clicks into place This is either a homage to said movie possibly, horror authors respect their muse or a clever riff on consumerism I might be reading it wrong, but as the blob grows like a huge, insatiable mass of swirling oil, so does its greed No spoilers here, but its actions are consumerism at work everyone is affected and suffers As it s greed grows, so does it s fulfilment level Or, this is just a great, original horror story with an unstoppable foe If so, Misura has created an evil entity that literally will destroy you to get by This bleakness in the story is the reason for its rejection, but I think it works Sometimes, a bad ending is suitable happy endings aren t always possible and horror is about scaring people, making them fear for their sanity The tale on show here nails that, creating a dark and brooding story with several realistic messages Verdict Depressingly bleak to the right degree, this story will tax your brain as the prose flies along The chapters break it up, however, the story is the right side of mysterious and macabre to satiate any horror fan Consumerism, homage, or otherwise, this is one of theoriginal entries in the book Misura has a unique writing style that brings alive the first person narrative and it s welcome to see this used to such an accomplished degree Teratoma Lance CarbuncleThe second entry from Lance Carbuncle, and just as disturbing, if notso Another lean story that had a dark message at its core, but one that always works in horror lore It also touches on the dark side of religion, or using it as an excuse People hide behind it too often and in this story, it shatters that social norm, confirming that religion doesn t always get it right.Simone is a disfigured baby Doctors declare is an abomination, the church declare it a miracle The parents are doting However, when a baby tries to bite you, you know something ain t rightIn two short stories, Carbuncle has made me a fan In this story, which is a mere four pages long, he pokes fun at corporate denial, FDA approvals, toxic contamination, and dodgy medical drugs All possible reasons for Simone s deformities Or, its a miracle and God made her that way Whatever the reason, it s not looking good for whoever is to blame, Simone being a monstrosity who likes to snack on the family pets and bite anyone near her Its a gruesome and dark story of devoted parenting should they keep her alive and is it fair to the kid A touchy topic, maybe too taboo for those who rejected it However, the topic is relevant, creating a quagmire of should they, shouldn t they which can cause a whole load of ethical dilemmas.Verdict Disturbing, witty, satirical, and simple Carbuncle delivers another exceptional flash fiction piece, one that will give you nightmares Thinking about kids Read this at your own risk Dr Sadistic Lisa DabrowskiThe second story from Lisa Dabrowski, which is asordid and erotic tale, one of unspoken sadomasochism and lust Reeling it in for a simple, two piece story, Lisa exposes her Mistress Rosie persona on this one, providing a story of fetishism gone horribly wrong.Dr Samuels meets a woman, one who likes to dominate Taking him back to his house, she satisfies his most extreme fantasies But just how extreme is he willing to goIn short, this is every guy s nightmare Finding a sexy woman, taking her home and having her fulfil your desires I ll stop there due to spoilers However, this short, taut tale delivers a solid, erotic piece of fiction that will have you reassessing the one night stand process Fantasies are sometimes best left as that Fantasies.Verdict Short, concise and kinky, this story has a little bit for the horror fans, erotica fans, and the flash fiction fans Once again, as all the RFC stories seem to have, it has an underlying message Stay at home with a coffee if this story scares you Vengeful Games of Forced Consumption Jason HughesFor me, this was the most disturbing story in the entire anthology In theory, it s realistic horror, a tale of neglect and irresponsibility This sort of thing is rife in the UK probably not to the extent of this story though and is a serious social issue It touched a nerve for me, but I couldn t tear my eyes away This, for me, is what pushed it into horror territory It was awful, but relevant in a society which takes such responsibility for granted.Two immature, junkie parents get pregnant Refusing to acknowledge their twin children at risk of losing their livelihood and freedom, they shove the kids in the wardrobe in the second bedroom What unravels is a twenty one year ordeal of venomous abuse, starvation, parental neglect, isolation, and pure hatred After twenty one years, the deformed, mutilated kids are set freeThis is a stark, harrowing tale Such is the construction of the words, it drags you into the parents murky, drug laden, abusive relationship As they bully the kids, it effortless flits from their POV to the kids, and with each you re in the wardrobe with the kids and on the outside with the parents, frequently considering which one is best True, the kids are locked in the wardrobe without sustenance and love, but would they really benefit on the outside, with parents who see them as nothingthan an irritation I m not a parent, but I can imagine this story shocking any decent parent, who wouldn t dare put their kid in this situation It makes for a horrific tale and, when the inevitable conclusion comes around, you can t help but smile a little The journey is torturous though, not for the faint of heart, and definitely a test of any horror fan s mental stabilityVerdict This story is what Rejected is all about True, each and every story thus far has earned it s place, but some stories push the boundaries to the utter limit Kids are always a touchy topic and Hughes nails this story, creating a house of utter helplessness, one you wouldn t step in for a thousand dollars but, in true form, is probably only five feet from your doorstep Parent s, beware If you re reading, you might find it difficult Dark, dreary, traumatic, and horrific, you might need a shower after reading this Better To Have Loved Dona FoxThe final poem in the anthology, provided by Dona Fox As an author and a reader, I enjoy apocalyptic novels Seeing humanity collapse under extreme duress makes for entertaining fiction In true form though, it s best saved for longer works Imagine my surprise when Dona Fox not only encapsulates a virus outbreak, and it s devastation, into a poem, but does so in only one page I was shocked And it worked extremely well.From blood contagion to international devastation within a matter of sentences, Dona captures the mysteriousness and classified themes and utilises them to stark, foreboding effect Do we know what s going on No, and it s a perfect representation of an apocalyptic event No one owns up and the world perishes People suffer, the virus spreads, some survive in this case, the narrator does , and technology fails us For such a short poem, Dona filters this into the words perfectly and delivers a huge punch to the ribs.Verdict An excellent poem that somehow captures the panic and chaos of a virus outbreak, yet delivers a subtle and clever survivors tale, all in the space it takes to put together a shopping list Never before has an event the size of the globe been shrunk down into a single page Excellent A Message of Flesh Kevin J MacleodAnd finally, the Editors Choice award for Rejected for Content And what a way to end the collection Some stories have been subtle, some wide in scope, and some outright brutal This one A Hollywood blockbuster of a story, encompassing a variety of creatures, occult themes and outright erotica It s Spartacus crossed with Prince of Persia and Caligula with a little Divine Comedy thrown in for good measure It s one of the smartest, most offensive stories you ll read all year and, in it s own right and a little extension, could be an excellent novel.Ahmed is sailing to Sodom to set free his Queen, Lilan What takes place is pure film fanfare, a story of perverse perfection, religion baiting offensiveness and undeniable, unfathomable lust This story is hard to explainyou have to read it yourself To tell you anything that happens in this story is to ruin one of the most unique, outright insane, twisting and turning, crazy stories I ve ever peeled my eyes over So much happens in this story, from mass orgies, sacrifices, dark magic, resurrections, devil worshippingit has a bit of everything The scope on this story is so grand, I m surprised MacLeod condensed it into the story itself, which is still fairly long The themes are dark and strict, but the story is played for fun, creating a wonderful fantasy story with graphic, religious undertones and imagery that will have your eyes out on stalks Which is never a bad thingVerdict Bonkers, absolute bonkers But controlled, imaginative, absolute bonkers This story is a fitting finale to a grand anthology of horror Kevin MacLeod shows that with a little bit of wit, bravado and research, you can create amazing, grand, original horror that will put perverts to shame and priests to the ground begging Not many authors can do thatbravo sir Overall Verdict Five stars, absolutely Stories aside, being a part of this anthology was a grand experience Never have I seen so many hard working, dedicated authors come together and create one hell of an extreme anthology My story was phenomenal to write and it took me to a dark place , and I m proud to be included amongst such talent The stories Wonderful, bizarre, terrifying, hilarious, twisted, violent, bonkers And varied Everything a horror book should be If you buy one anthology this year, make it Rejected for Content Besides, you need to read thisthe sequel is only a few moons away Formidable reading

  5. Scott Scott says:

    This anthology ranges from very good to shockingly bad I m guessing that some of these stories were rejected for reasons other than being too extreme These had a lot of grammar and typo issues that made them painful, and in fact I gave up on some of them halfway through I m learning that anthologies aren t for me, as it only takes a few clunkers to make the whole book seem like a chore Extreme horror junkies may want to check it out.


  6. Deborah Gallatin Deborah Gallatin says:

    Rejected Why If u like your stories edgy, graphic, and most definitely memorable, then you ll want to give this book a shot Chock full of gore, blood, sex, cannibalism, abuse, and all types of subject matter that your psychiatrist told u to stop reading Plenty of talented authors throughout, this is a book you ll be reading in one sitting Once started, I found it a very difficult thing to set aside.

    I don t normally post negative reviews, so Ill stick to the factsTo be fair, there are some very well written stories in this book that I would have given a five star rating to, if only I could have rated them individually Especially the one about the cats, and the one titled All that remains But a few good stories, even great ones, do not justify the rest of the stuff in this collection.1 About half of the stories are just erotica with a horror twist, nothing truly original.2 Several o I don t normally post negative reviews, so Ill stick to the factsTo be fair, there are some very well written stories in this book that I would have given a five star rating to, if only I could have rated them individually Especially the one about the cats, and the one titled All that remains But a few good stories, even great ones, do not justify the rest of the stuff in this collection.1 About half of the stories are just erotica with a horror twist, nothing truly original.2 Several of the stories needediting and formatting Without looking at their names, I can tell these authors have potential, and some are probably already career professionals But the rest need to spendtime refining their writing before trying to sell it And whoever formatted the E book needs to bethorough Errors throughout.3 the stories that aren t focused on sex tended to be the most forced I cant explain this one without getting into spoilers Basically, just because the idea is unusual or original doesn t mean it will make a good story Several of these stories obviously got included because of that item alone.4 the poems seemed to be the best part of it, but I didn t pay money for just a few good poems.5 at least two of the stories have inconsistent Point of view issues that were glaringly obvious, and made it difficult to keep reading.6 some of these stories were impossible to visualize because the amount of text was too slim for the amount of activity being mentioned particularly The obelisk of souls These should have been fleshed out into novellas As short stories, they left far too much empty space in my minds eye


  8. Jennifer Crawford Jennifer Crawford says:

    My only complaint is that the editor seemed to get lazier and lazier as the book progresses the editing is VERY sloppy and half assed It s quite noticeable and I m talking huge mistakes words left out, words and phrases repeated, wrong word usage, etc it s annoying and you have to reread some parts Overall though, these latter stories content wise , are definitely worth the read.


  9. Allan Allan says:
