    The folks over at Crooked Cat Publishing put together one heck of an anthology. FEAR Volume One was packed tightly with thrillers, chillers and originality. Loved it!

    I’m accustomed to the average anthology running from 14 to 20 short stories, unless they are flash fiction tales, so I was pleased that this anthology offered a double dose of scary goodness. While not all the stories matched my typical horror tastes, I still found each and every one of them entertaining in some way. With such a broad assortment of horror, thrillers and dark fantasy gathered in one book, It would take me several separate reviews to touch on every one.

With such a broad assortment of horror, thrillers and dark fantasy gathered in one book, It would take me several separate reviews to touch on every one. Instead, I’m going to focus on a few that struck me in particular and mention why they stood out for me. “Dead Ding Donger” (Wayne Via) and “Old Mabel’s Stray Cat” (Cameron Trost)both had a hefty dose of dark humour to them, something I look for and especially enjoy in horror anthologies. While Dead Ding Donger was a little predictable, it was still very funny, and “Old Mabel’s Stray Cat” caught me by surprise with its twist ending and Mabel’s somewhat demented way of seeing things. I liked “Breaker One Nine” (Connor Rice) for the originality of its setting and its peculiar (but frightening) monster. You could say this one was a chiller *grin*. While not inspiring much in the way of fear in me, I absolutely loved Lyn McConchie’s “The Book”. It had more of a dark fantasy mixed with science fiction feel to it, with an epic spin, and it was a very moving story. I was so caught up in it, I almost missed my bus stop. E.E. King’s “Synthesia” was cleverly woven, scary mixed in an odd way with whimsical and vivid imagery. “A Cloud Over the Sun” by A.A. Garrison was priceless thanks to its fabulously jarring format – it made the story into something extraordinary. “Seamless” (Shirley Golden) was solid science-fiction horror with an extremely disturbing ending. There were many other very good stories, but these were the ones that appealed to my tastes the most. Be it zombies and gore you seek or suspenseful tales with a lovecraftian flavour, this book has it all. If you are looking for excellent Halloween fare, or just a good scare, I’d suggest this anthology as a worthwhile read – and the proceeds go to two great causes.

    I am not one to normally sit down and read a gigantic horror book, because I simply do not like the crazy images I conjure for myself in my head. However, give me a giant book of mini horror stories and I’m good to go. I find anthologies like this one to be lots of fun and I am really glad I was given the opportunity to participate in this blog tour.

This anthology is a two volume set and each and every story is worth your time. They are all chilling and creepy and many have a crazy twist of fate to them. This anthology is great because you can sit down and enjoy a bunch of scary stories back to back or you can pick the book up, read one story, and then come back later to read some more. So there is no way I can write about each and every story, so I picked out some of my favorites that I wanted to share with you guys. First we have What Goes Around by Carmen Jenner (she is awesome, by the way and one of my favorite blogger buddies.) This was the first story I read in the anthology, and even after all of the other stories, I could not forget it. Probably because it had zombies, and we all know that I am weirdly obsessed with zombies. Her zombies were vividly described and those descriptions made me cringe because they were so perfectly gross. I also loved the title and if you read the story you will see that it is an apt title for the twist that occurs. Next I want to mention Of Events At Lowkirk Cemetery by Michael Cail. I loved the time period this story was set in; gaslight automatically makes anything creepier. This story is like a story within a story. We come into it after the events have occurred and watch the main character describe the events to the police. I thought this was a very interesting way to get the story across. I also enjoyed the mention of strigoi, because Vampire Academy freak that I am, it excited me. Another favorite of mine was Little Darlings by Ginger Nielsen. This one truly creeped me out and I absolutely loved the twist at the end. There were lots of dolls in this one, and dolls freak me out, so this was a great scary story for me. The story did not go the way I expected at all, and I loved it for that. I love when a story surprises me. I also love that the little girl is not so innocent. I also really enjoyed The Lost Souls by Laura Huntley. This one was incredibly sad, but still had a creepy feel. This one really made my heart hurt. Despite its short length, I really felt for the character and made a connection with her. This is one of those stories that is not happy, but it is good. Last but not least, I want to mention Life and Death In A Cemetery by Denise Moncrief. I loved that this story jumped right into the action. It picks up after a woman has been kidnapped and she is digging her own grave. This leaves the reader to imagine how she got there and exactly what happened. I loved that the woman had fight in her and refused to back down. The ending to this one is an awesome twist and I was very happy with the turn of events. I was lucky enough to have the chance to interview Denise, so be sure to check that out after the review. I wish I could mention all of the stories, but then we would be here for days. These stories may have been the ones to stand out to me, but there may be others that stand out to you. Every single story is truly great and worth the read. Horror fans, this one is for you. *I received a copy of this book as part of the blog tour in exchange for a fair and honest review

    As a charity anthology, for only a handful of pennies, it would be churlish (and uncharitable!) to pick at the loose threads in this e-book, which could perhaps have benefited by a little more editing. That aside, 30 stories means even if you don't like them all, there's something for everyone! Here's my favourite three : A cloud Over the Sun, A.A. Garrison One of the best stories I've read for switching POV. Masterly done! Would have loved a soupcon of more threat from the final phone call...

Garrison One of the best stories I've read for switching POV. Masterly done! Would have loved a soupcon of more threat from the final phone call... An earlier suggestion of a barrier crossed, before bringing it home with the darkness that is to come! Harvest Home : Linton Robinson I'm a sucker for a clever ending, and this delivers. It's stronger in the second half than the first, I think it tries to be a little coy about the threat faced, whereas of course that's not the surprise! Synesthesia : E.E. King A novel idea - and I love the ending. Wonder if telling it from a male perspective was the best approach though? Something about the sensory overload, seems to resonate more from a female perspective... Liam

    There are some very spooky stories in this compilation and I've definitely discovered writers I'd like to read more of. A few of the tales are a bit more miss than hit, but the standard is generally quite high. It could also do with another run through by an editor for some small typos and spelling errors. But hey, it's for charity!

    "Fear....." is a selection box of spookiness. Whether you are a fan of zombies, vampires or good old-fashioned ghosts, there's something for you here. They may not be the most spine-chilling tales, but they are worth reading.

    this collection is pretty OK for the price. However it lacks... i dunno.. memorability maybe. Some are quite weird (in a bad way) that i wondered what the hell is actually happening. Some are dull. One or two i like.. such as 'Alarming' and 'Octavia'. Worth a try, anyway. tq

    Pretty decent horror anthology. Enjoyed most of the stories; maybe one or two weren't as good, but none were awful. Well written, well edited. Enjoyed this one!

    Really good collection of short stories, many by writers I had not heard of before. most stories in this anthology were really compelling, though I liked some more than others. Definitely worth a read.

    Meh. With 70% of the stories taking place during Halloween or describing yet another Zombie breakout, this collection has little to offer to me. The short stories in it fail to scare as much as they disgust or make you sense despair. Every single story is paranormal and nothing really grasps you is something realistic.

    A few very good stories. Most stories were ok. A few that were just bad.

    Well of course I think this book is great, I happen to have a story in it! But at the risk of sounding bias, it's horror at its best!
