    5 great stories, 5 great authors!

    Brian James Freeman and Richard Chizmar of Cemetery Dance Publications have teamed up to edit Dark Screams for Hydra (sold through Random House). In this case, 5 authors’ stories were selected by Freeman & Chizmar, and then edited into a wonderful compilation. I love to read…anything! But my favorite genre is “horror”, “supernatural”, “occult”, sci-fy…whatever word you wish to use…to me, they all run together. I was pleased with the beginning story, “Weeds”, a VERY early short story by Stephen King. I read it many, many years ago and it was fun to re-visit Jordy Verrill, a lunkhead who has the usually good luck of having a meteorite land on his property. Of course, this is Stephen King, and Jordy is an idiot. Bad things happen to most idiots in King stories! While the story is actually kind of funny…I still shiver when reading the very gruesome things Jordy experiences. The remaining 4 stories, all written by highly published authors, are new stories and many people interested in this collection will have likely as not, read Weeds (or seen the screen adaptation in the original Creepshow movie in which Stephen King himself, played the part of Jordy Verrill…and a perfect casting it was!) but may not be as familiar with some of these authors but they are good at their craft. “The Price You Pay” by Kelly Armstrong is a great twisting story of how to get away from an old “friend” who is nothing but trouble. Some plans don’t work out the way they are intended. “Magic Eyes” by Bill Pronzini is an awesomely written story that will forever be the benchmark I use to determine if I’ve gone completely nuts! “Murder in Chains” by Simon Clark is something of an even more brutal version of the Hunger Games. Being a short story, he gets right to the brutality and you will flip your virtual pages and be finished before you know what hit you (did HE hit you?). “The Watched” by Ramsey Campbell is the last story and it’s placed there for good reason…Freeman and Chizmar wanted to start you off with a potentially familiar but disturbing story and they wanted you to lay you e-reader down before bed and have trouble sleeping. This, in my opinion, is one of the scariest short stories I’ve ever read. Jimmy, a young boy deals with a (person, ghost, ghoul, all 3?) who seems to live or at least “hang out a great deal” in a bird hide along a canal across from his home. Of course, Jimmy has to walk past this hide quite often and being a kid, is extremely curious. The protagonist gets Jimmy involved in way more than the poor kid bargained for and what he deals with is truly frightening in a relatively nonviolent way which made my skin crawl and my feet come off the floor. Terrific writing by Campbell. For the price of this e-book, you can’t go wrong. It’s an easy evening read (make sure you finish it just before you turn off the lights for a good (or not so good?) night’s sleep)! BTW, I never leave 5 star reviews because so many people don’t read them. I myself typically read only 2, 3 or 4 star reviews but this is easily a 4+!!

    A wonderful eclectic collection

    I throughly enjoyed each and every one of the stories in this collection. They were all very different and each one kept my attention. After reading these stories, I will be sure to read other stories by all these authors.

    Good but not great

    I really had a hard time understanding a couple of the stories. One just sorta ended without a resolution.
