Reviewed by Martina Bexte
HP Industries/Black Death Books offers this compilation of twenty four horror tales that should add a few frights, chills and creepiness to whatever Halloween festivities you have planned this year.
he majority of the stories in this anthology are nicely written, standard horror fare that range from the quietly chilling to the graphic. I got the feeling that most authors were paying homage to their favorite writers, such as H. P. Lovecraft, Poe, or Stephen King - or everybody's favorite television fright mare favourite,
Tales From the Crypt
The Blackest Death
include: Karen Kohler's
Bad Hand Man
, a sinister tale of the old west;
The Return of the Ba
by Angeline Hawkes-Craig, a spooky story about an Egyptian curse; and
Where Secrets Fester
by T.M Gray, in which the town garbage man is more than he appears to be. So pull up a chair, light a few candles and enjoy.
