When the ONE horror author you are willing to read says, “hey, want to read something I did with these other two horror authors?” Of course I said yes. I love the idea of being able to read some new authors and find some possible new books to read. It’s like that sampler box of chocolates. Some you love – some you try to pawn off on your husband.
With this collection – I was stretched to the limit of extremes. First off everything is wrapped around 3 and the first 1/3 of the book is 3 stories dealing with Cabin Fever – really guys? Have you not been in the world recently? After being lulled into the first story and then being blasted, I am totally rethinking having anyone here for Thanksgiving.
The 2nd third all deal with letters and Chris Miller showed a side I hadn’t seen before in his, well done. And then the last 1/3 – Chaos – OMG – In our world gone mad, the scariest thing was how possible the stories all are!
This might just be a little too much for some, but then again if you don’t consider extremes, how will you ever be able to deal with them – because they are here.
All in all I would recommend this – just with the usual caveat I give – read in the daylight. Make sure someone else is home and keep the dog close!
