The stories in these two volumes exceeded my expectations. They were so good I had to buy all the other issues available.
There are six stories in volume five. I found the quality top notch and enjoyed them all with my two favourite being In The Fall by Brendan Detzner, which has a very strong lead character and an excellent paranormal premise, and Juliet by Genevieve Taylor, which is a zombie story. And I'm a sucker for zombies.
All in all, this publication is the best value for money on the market too. Buy it!
These tales will frighten and grip you long after you put them down. This is becoming a staple for my Kindle.
The handful of quick scares sell themselves short on the list price. Every one is as professional and prolific as those included in the collections I usually purchase.
Don't underestimate this one.
"Her Words Make It Go Away," is short, with an eerie punch that might not have worked in a longer story, but delivers the shivers just fine as is. Genevieve Taylor's "Juliet" is both poignant and creepy. "Wicker Park Pause" by Richard Thomas reads like a modern day NYC update of a Grimm Brothers story. Michal A. Pignatella's "A Whisper is Just a Quiet Scream" is a ghost tale that builds with more layers than you might expect for a short story, with a satisfyingly macabre payoff.
"In the Fall" by Brendan Detzner features a fascinatingly cold blooded heroine who faces a supernatural threat with all the coolness of the ambitious sociopath. My favorite of this issue is Gra Linnea's "Beneath the Floorboards," a chilly little yarn about a runaway boy who steals his father's precious grandfather clock. I can't say much about the events herein without doing a spoiler, so I'll just note that it's surreal and spooky, with elements that may remind you of Robert Bloch.
Since discovering this magazine, I've bought every issue. Not every story is masterpiece, naturally, but so many of them are so good that the total work compares with the best of what you saw when racks of physical bookstores bulged with publications devoted to the supernatural. Those wonderfully camp covers add to the vintage feel. "One Buck" is so much like classic pulp you can almost smell the pages.
