5.0 out of 5 stars Imagine a dark night, a lonely road, an overgrown cemetery 29 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am not a writer, but I am a consummate reader of the ghostly genre. When I picked up Cemetery Sonata on a whim for the weekend, little did I realize that I would not stop until the last terror unfolded.This book is so unlike any other on the market today: no erotica, no skulking vampires - actually, no blood at all unless you consider the rise in your blood pressure as you read of the twisted tales in this anthology of 42 original tales of the night. I am so greatful to Ms. Hubbard for having the foresight not only to seek out virgin talent, but to make Cemetery Sonata a good fright instead of a blood bath or orgy. I doubt seriously that, once you read this book, you will think of a graveyard as anything but tranquil. FWI: thought Ms Hubbard does a fine job with this collection, she is also an accomplished writer: Check out Night Voices. A series of short stories from the author's recollections of growing up in southen Appalacia in the 1940's. A true talentof the eery.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderfully chilly tales from the world of the afterlife 4 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Being a horor efficiando for many years, I think this book would be perfect for reading by candlelight on a dark, stormy night. However, for the novice horror fan - maybe not.
The 42 individual stories are vastly different yet along a similar theme of true fright of the old masters of terror. I could think of nothing that would have been more perfect than having Vincent Price read them to me.
To vegin with, there is a corrupt version of Moonlight Sonata coming from old crypt, while in another part of the cemtery, a madman who was mistakenly buried alive, crouches in the darkness of night behind the rusted iron fence of the cemetery. Want still more? Step into an old house and discover the true secret of what happens to the soul after death. If your teeth aren't chattering by now, go check out that man climbing over the top of the cemtery wall after his shovel - could it be that he has plans to bother the eternal sleep of someone andm if so, why? The answer will leave you quite unnerved.
These are but a portion of the frights that away you behind those huge iron gates, locked at night to protect the dead. Or is it to protect those of us still free to hurry as fast as we can down that lonely road - far away from the looming iron fence and crypts, the white headstones shining in the moonlight. Far away from the strains of Moonlight Sonata and insanity.
If you like cemeteries and wonder if the dead rest in peace, you devour Cemetery Sonata in one sitting. After all, after reading this book, who can sleep?
One heck of a good book for us horror freaks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good classic tales of horror 25 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's nice to see a independent publisher coming out with some good, classic stories of horror. Most of the stories are well written, and there is even some well known writers like Tina Jens, and Edo van Belkom that have contribute their stories. But it's some of the newer writers that have really added some gems of great tales that you just have to get the book and see for yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad read 13 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Found it somewhat refreshing, a good scare without the graphic. A bit expensive at first glance but definitely worth every penny in entertainment.Yes, would recommend highly as a good read. Haven't heard of the editor but she seems to be on a good track.Zack

This is a fabulous book of ghost stories, featuring work by such authors as Tom Piccirilli, Robin Lochlann Spriggs, and Robert Devereux. If you want to keep yourself awake with fright, this anthology is just the thing you're looking for.
