5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Contes Macabres 1 April 2013
A great collection from Danse Macabre in this most recent collection, Contes Finale is a rich mixture that delivers on style and content. This collection of 15 short stories covers genres from classic thriller to gothic and horror. With fabulous trio of stories from John M Edwards et al with a lot of established talent with emerging talent merging in this great book of short tales - like stories in these genres they have to hold and these do - certainly a book I will reread. great bedside or beach reading alike. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Contes Macabre 19 Mar 2013
By artworkbykyren - Published on
Within the opening paragraph of Contes Macabre, one knows that they are in for a treat of the best kind - something as delicious as it is dark, as addictive as pure Colombian sans the comedown, and that whispers of the unfathomable depths of the human mind. Chris Crittenden's Came a Spider, is reminiscent of the great horror writing of old, and one can almost see a flickering apparition of Poe standing behind the author as he typed his story late some night.

The fifteen pieces in this anthology from Vegas-based online publication, Danse Macabre, are all penned with with the utmost finesse. This collection is frequented by a plethora of characters as colorful as any dreamed up by Dickens, from the frustrated Emmet in J.C. Frampton's, I Can't Stand This Much Longer, to the fur-covered protagonist's of K.J. Medico's Omen's search of the London streets for their missing brother.

Contes Macabre is a true blessing in these modern times. More and more it seems as if the reading population is becoming polarized between 'the classics' (what we should read if we want to flaunt how sophisticated we really are), and the best-sellers (what is thrown at us to consume without thinking). This is literature. And it is honest and sincere, it shows what good writing really is - knowing when to hold back, and knowing when to unleash. It is not vague and ironic,and it actually makes sense. There is new literature out there we should be reading, and Lazarus Media is carrying the torch and lighting the way through the tempestuous night. Contes Macabre is a true testament of this. We should all breath a sigh of relief. There is hope after all.

Benjamin Blake, author of A Prayer for Late October.
