Dark Visions: an anthology of 34 horror stories from 27 authors: Volume 2 (The Box Under The Bed) Dan Alatorre and 26 others! #BookReview

A short while ago, I was approached by Robbie Cheadle, a great blogger buddy of mine, with a request.

She is branching out into writing horror fiction – another string to her already impressive bow, wife, mother, children’s author, baker, blogger, financial whizz… and now this too!

Robbie has had two stories chosen to be included in a new collection of spooky short tales, the second volume of Dan Alatorre’s collections, named Dark Visions: an anthology of 34 horror stories from 27 authors: Volume 2 (The Box Under The Bed)

She wondered whether I may have the time to peruse this collection, which includes 34 short horror stories, perfect for this time of year, and possibly leave a review.

And I have to say, I jumped at the chance! I have had the first volume on my TBR pile since it was published, and haven’t been able to read it yet, but I cleared my schedule last weekend and got reading.

I wasn’t disappointed!

Alongside Robbie’s tales are stories from other familiar indie authors, many of whom I have followed, admired and read for a while. You will have heard of them, I am sure!

Dan Alatorre, Jenifer Ruff (Everett), Allison Maruska ,  J. A. Allen, MD Walker, Juliet Nubel,  Dabney Farmer, Sharon E. Cathcart, Heather Kindt, Bonnie Lyons, Sharon Connell, Geoff LePard, Anne Marie Andrus, Christine Valentor, BA Helberg, Ernesto San Giacomo, Alana Turner, Nick Vossen, Robbie Cheadle, Betty Valentine, Frank Parker, Bonnie Lyons, Lori Micken, Chuck Jackson, Ellen Best, Victoria Clapton

It was truly a (spooky) pleasure to read!

My Review:

If you like to be able to dip in and out of a collection of spooky stories at your pleasure, then this is definitely a book for you!
A wonderful anthology filled with various delights ranging from the ghoulish to the gruesome!
I especially enjoyed the tale of a troublesome mother who helped her son’s business in a truly bloody manner, thanks to Geoff LePard, titled Ice Cream.
Robbie Cheadle’s tale The Haunting Of William was another that left me spooked out! For the record, that William deserved to get haunted!
Ellen Best’s entry, The Documentary is a short, sharp shocker too!
If I could, I would review each and every story, but that would defeat the purpose of you reading for yourself, so I urge you to take a chance on this fantastic collection of tales, perfect for the month of October, and Halloween!

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
