    I normally tear through these anthologies, but this one requires a little time due to how amazing each and every story is Not only is it full of some of my favorite writers ie Ramsey Campbell, Shane McKenzie, Shaun Meeks, JF Gonzalez and Adam Millard , but it has introduced me to some all new favorites ie Scathe meic Beorh, K Trap Jones, Christine Morgan, Chantal Noordeloos and Anna Taborska William Cook has put together an amazing collection of some of the best writers who have obviously brought some of their best tales to the table Trying to pick favorites in this amazing line up was like taking two cans of Pepsi and asking which one do you like But I did it anyway, although I am sure I will read each of these stories again, and again.My top picks would have to be Shane McKenzie s So Much Pain, So Much Death Shaun Meeks Perfection Through Silence Chantal Noordeloos The Door Anna Taborska s Out of the Light Adam Millard s The Incongruous Mr Marwick RObert Dunbar s High Rise and Scathe meic Beorh s God of the Wind That being said, there is not a single story I would pass on during a second reading of this It really is one of the best anthologies of the year.

    There is no set theme for this anthology, but each story touches on the fears of the modern world In the introduction, a selection from W.J Renham s The Art of Darkness Meditations on the Effect of Horror Fiction, we are reminded that, Horror serves to reconnect us with our primal selves, provides temporary respite from the droning conditions of modern life Some stories examine the experience of being bullied, losing a child, and the terror of becoming a drooling husk devoid of emotion Primal fears of ghosts, demons and ancient evil unleashed upon humanity are also found here Some of these tales are a closer look at the horrors we view on the 24 hour news feeds where serial killers, rapes and murders keep us both frightened and entertained Some authors examine the quiet horrors of isolation, insanity, and the the complacency of those who look at evil but do nothing to stop it.Be warned none of the authors shy away from vivid imagery, gore, violence or misogyny The one story that haunts me the most, Camps by Jack Dann, was a glimpse into the history of World War II The images conjured in his words are as haunting as the photographs that survive the Nazi concentration camps Another favorite was Welcomeland by Ramsey Campbell His portrait of a dilapidated town and the equally ramshackle amusement park gave me chills The lyrical, Darkness Dancing in Your Eyes by WH Pugmire was a glimpse of eternal loyalty, beauty, and pain.I highly recommend Fresh Fear for lovers of gut wrenching horror.Scathe meic Beorh God of the Wind An academic research trip to Mora, New Mexico brings a man face to face with the gods of the desert and teaches him than he wants to know.Ramsey Campbell Welcomeland A man travels home to visit the amusement park he he helped finance Meant to revitalize the economy, he finds the park failed and the town in shambles You can t go home again, but if you do, can you ever leave Lily Childs Strange Tastes She s the perfect caretaker Loyal, neat, clean, and a fantastic gourmet cook When her employers are arrested for tax fraud, she discovers they share her tastes in than kitchen appliances.Lincoln Crisler Nouri and the Beetles In a time of war, the young men leave to fight What does a girl have to do to get a husband Jack Dann Camps People often speak of those suffering a terminal disease as being fighters Stephen fights his war for survival on two fronts The first is a war of pain and drugs The second is a battle of memories long past and never forgotten.Robert Dunbar High Rise Brandon, his brother Tyrone, and their mother move to a better room in an ill kept high rise When Tyrone meets one of the ghostly former tenants, Brandon must save his life before he wastes away.Thomas Erb Spencer Weaver Gets Rebooted A teen has only the internet, and his mother to help him get through his last year of High School, and get revenge on the bully who tormented him.Brandon Ford Scare Me As a reviewer, I can honestly say that this was my favorite story in the whole anthology It was fantastic I swear it Really Not joking Looks nervous.Carole Gill Raised A boy s despair over his mother s madness leads him to a career in medicine While dissecting corpses for his classes, he discovers he has a passion for studying the deceased Will his mother s curse follow him, or is there something else in the past that haunts him Lindsey Beth Goddard The Tooth Collector When her daughter is killed in traffic, Jenny knows it wasn t an accident She seeks out the man responsible and demands her daughter be returned to her.JF Gonzalez

facility, desperate to escape The Rooks shoot him full of drugs to steal his soul The takers shuffle him from place to place and whisper the words that strike terror in his heart, It s Wednesday, and

observes Christine Morgan Nails of The Dead Plenty of people are preparing for the end of the world Some intend to merely survive it, others work to build the vehicles that will usher it in.Billie Sue
