    Playful and Serious

    Playful and Serious. This has been one of my favorite of the series. I love Bentley Little and his story here is true to his character. This was a good read for me with stories I feel I could read again and again. If you have read any of the other volumes then this is must read also. If you have not read any of the Dark Screams yet then this will be a good treat for you also.

    Some Good, Some Great

    A couple of great stories, but some not so great. The stories show good imagination, but one is written so pretentiously it is hard to figure out what it is about. The first and last stories were the best of the bunch.

    Some good tales but inconsistent

    Dark Screams: Volume Five I’ve read the initial volumes and of them all, this one was a little disappointing. I like the format: a handful of tales by authors you may or may not know, and all of them raising the hairs on the back of your neck. Usually. I like Mick Garris’ work but Everything You’ve Always Wanted ran on too long for me. I got the set up quick and the long wait for the denouement was more a chore than I expected. I didn’t even like the payoff. A rare miss. Kealan Burke’s The Land of Sunshine was all atmosphere, a moody story of love gone wrong and a man’s search for the path home, where home in this case, is the way things used to be. Liked the atmosphere but wanted a stronger close. Mechanical Gratitude by Del James was the one story that I loved, even though I’ve been on that roller coaster many times before. I didn’t know every dip and turn, but I enjoyed the ride and would hop on again in a heartbeat. I don’t know the author but I’ll be searching for other work. The One and Only by J. Kenner was an almost stock tale with a familiar feel. I’ve been to New Orleans a bunch of times so that helped me enjoy the walk, but there was no real surprise here, despite the well drawn scenes. Bentley Little is always fun, and The Playhouse did not disappoint. I’ve read many tales of haunted things and places but this was definitely unique. I didn’t buy the whole premise (her husband’s response), but it was creepy enough in places to raise gooseflesh. Which is all I ever ask. Don’t know if there will be a sixth volume, but I’ll be looking for it.

    Dark Screams 5

    I was given an advance copy of this book to give a honest review. That said, I love this series and have enjoyed all 5 volumes, this one is up to the same high standard as the other four. Every story is worth reading more than once and then again and again. Do yourself a favour and read these books!
