Críticas

Al final de El día de los trífidos, el protagonista, Bill Masen, se une a la colonia recién fundada en la isla de Wight. Esta pequeña comunidad, de momento a salvo de las terribles plantas mutantes, se emplea a fondo no sólo en erradicarlas, sino también en sentar las bases de una nueva civilización.
Veinticinco años después, una mañana de verano, la tierra se ve repentinamente sumida en la oscuridad: no ha salido el sol. A los trífidos les ha faltado tiempo para invadir la isla, de modo que el hijo de Masen, David, emprende un arriesgado viaje para averiguar a qué se debe la negrura y para acabar definitivamente con las plantas. La aventura lo conducirá hasta un Manhattan aparentemente utópico y a una dolorosa verdad: la peor amenaza para el ser humano reside en la crueldad de la que es capaz.… (mais)

There are 18 stories weaved into the pages of this anthology and I am always happy when I see a new release by KJK Publishing as I know there are going to be some more horror authors to explore along with revisiting ones I have read from the past. Though I liked all the stories I have to say I pulled some favorites out of this collection and they are listed below.

Favorite stories from this collection are as follows with a tiny cryptic note:

It Walks About the Woods by Tom Deady: "Folklore legend could be real."

A Broken Man by Steve Stred: "Be careful what you trade away as there could be consequences."

Old Soul by R.J. Roles: "Experiencing death one too many times."

When Call the Deep by Mike Duke: "What really resides in the deep blue sea?"

The Old Man at the Gatehouse by Simon Clark: "Becoming a ghost is not what it is cracked up to be."

Soul Prism by Ruthann Jagge: "Glasses invention goes south."

Run Rabbit Run by Andrew Lennon: "If someone is dead make sure they are dead."

I Am the Storm by Michael Bray: "Desperate to see loved ones becomes a painful mind trip."

Taste for Adventure by Matthew A. Clarke: "Getting lost in the back country turns dire."

Beast by Kyle M. Scott: "Even furry beasts get to have some fun."

The Graveyard by Lee Mountford: "Becoming a ghost wouldn't be too bad or would it?"

Thoughts:

Another great collection filled with all kind of twisted nightmares from KJK Publishing! I probably say this every time I do a review for these books that KJK Publishing puts out and I will say it again - these books are great as I am able to get a taste of the authors that are gathered in each book and it makes me want to pursue their other work.

I have read many anthologies in my life, but interesting enough I almost own all of the collections put out by KJK Publishing as I really like and love all the authors that are intertwined in these books.

If you have not stepped into these anthologies then you need to go check them out as there are quite a few books now in the horror collection series - 12 to be exact. Giving this book four "Twisted Frightening" stars!

Jack Crofton a poet employed as a script writer during Word War II is suddenly faced with people wanting to kill him. Finally escaping into a public house he meets Holmes and Watson who offer to help.
Though I finished the story I unfortunately really didn't take to it.

I can tell you what I liked best in this book......the Necropolis itself. The Gothic imagery of the abandoned cemetery and the lavish Victorian era monuments is very haunting in and of itself. I picture it looking much like the old section of London's Highgate.

The plot was purely incidental; I would have been happy with an epistolary description of a series of walks through the Necropolis with all sorts of unexplained phenomena.
