Sunday Reviews: Horror Short Stories

Sundays are for book reviews Horror Short Stories (Edited by Joanna Blythe) ☆☆☆☆ of ☆☆☆☆☆

I was excited when I purchased this hardcover book as I love horror shorts and longs. On one hand I was excited about the possibilities, on the other hand after I read the book I found that I had read virtually all the stories and had almost all of them in other books and collections I already owned. This was a little disappointing and hence the 4 of 5 starts. With that in mind though each of the stories is fun and enticing, and I feel that the selection done by the authors is appropriate for many audiences.

My favorite of the authors, Guy DE Maupassant did not disappoint and of course Poe, Lovecraft, and many others were great as always. A super collection, but still a reprint for the most part.
