Product Description

TALES FROM THE MIST will take you on a journey into the dark world of the paranormal. These twelve stories vary in their degree of horror, yet all reach across the boundaries of their genres into the chilling realms of the macabre. Witches, ghosts, shape-shifters and vampire rats are some of the creatures that reign within these pages. Authors included are: Scott Nicholson, Rhonda Hopkins, Marty Young, Cate Dean, Tamara Ward, Meredith Bond, Catie Rhodes, Greg Carrico, Mitzi Flyte, Natalie G. Owens, *lizzie starr and Stacey Joy Netzel.

From TW Brown, author of Dead: The Ugly Beginning: "To have a collection assembled by such a talented group of authors makes this THE anthology to own if you are a fan of horror."

From Bill Hopkins, Author of Courting Murder: “I've grown up loving to be scared. Thus, when I had a chance to read Tales From The Mist, I jumped at the chance and jumped when I read the stories. All these stories are worth your while…”

Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Mutated: ""Tales From The Mist is one of those rare anthologies that gets it right from the first story to the last. It's a magnificent feast of horror from some of the most assured voices working today. From cold-blooded tales of revenge to Faustian bargains to terrifying journeys into the dark corners of our world, these stories will make the shivers climb your back."

5.0 out of 5 stars PJ Sharon, YA Author 17 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Creepy shorts that don't disappoint!

I'm not usually a fan of short stories, but when I picked this up, I found myself engrossed in each and every tale that I read. From the spine tingling folk lore of Scott Nicholson's Wampus Cat to Catie Rhodes graphic realism with a twist of humor in Haste, I thoroughly enjoyed the uniqueness of each story. Tamara Ward's Jade O'Reilly and The Graveyard Shift had me looking over my shoulder at the creeks from my floorboards and Rhonda Hopkins story The Consuming made me wonder if my own house held secrets I had yet to discover. The King of Rats by Greg Carrico gave me a peek into the creepy world of fantasy with animal characters that came to life on the page, while Mitzi Flyte's ode to Edgar Allen Poe revived the terror I once experienced while reading the work of the master himself. Meredith Bond's chilling account of Lilith's fall from grace in the Garden of Eden story called In A Beginning gave me pause to ask the question, "What if?" Natalie Owens paints a grim picture of the line between reality and the voices in our heads in An Inconvenient Debt, and Lizzie Starr takes on Death and vampires in her frightening Dead Lily Blooms. Not to be forgotten, witches and ghosts are given their due in Stacey Joy Netzels, Beneath Still Waters, a story that will be a campfire favorite for me in the future. The stories were well-written and gave me a taste of each author's unique style which I think is the whole point of anthologies like this. I wouldn't hesitate to buy future full-length novels from any of these talented authors. I made the terrifying mistake of reading these stories while home alone at night in a big old farmhouse out in the woods...I highly recommend you do the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a weak link in the chain! 17 Oct 2012
By TW Brown, Author, Editor, and Reviewer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
In my house, Halloween is a bigger holiday than Christmas. One of the benefits of my life is the occasional request to read an Advance Review Copy (or ARC in the parlance of the biz). Tales from the Mist is a collection of shorts coming out just in time for Halloween. To have a collection assembled by such a talented group of authors makes this THE anthology to own if you are a fan of horror.

The anthology leads off with Wampus Cat by Scott Nicholson. Suitably creepy, this story is a text book example of how to set a tone. This is a story that allows the reader to become engrossed and hear every creak and groan. Just hope it is the house settling...

The Consuming by Rhonda Hopkins is the literary version of what films like Paranormal Activity tried to be. This has the bumps in the night flying off the page. I realize that some people like a solid closure, but I am a fan of stories that keep the wheels in your mind turning long after you have read the last word.

Addiction by Marty Young is a story that I think I just missed the point on. I am a firm believer in an author doing more showing and less telling, but this one just did not break through. The prose was wonderful, but I just did not see the idea as I am sure was intended.

The Messenger by Cate Dean is one part Ghost and one part gothic thriller. This is one of those stories that is so beautiful and well written that it feels like so much more than a short.

Jade O'Reilly and the Graveyard Shift by Tamara Ward was a slurry of Tales from the Crypt fun that should be read around a campfire. A nice tension build with some humor was a perfect inclusion. I took it as a warning for what was to come.
In A Beginning by Meredith Bond is a very interesting twist on the Lilith idea. It has a particularly nasty vibe to it that will chill the easily disturbed.

Haste by Catie Rhodes could be a Crime-TV documentary recreation, but then it takes a bit of a turn. A scorned woman becomes haunted by a cheating husband and his floozy. My only critique is that "The Lord's Prayer" is Matthew 6:9, not the twenty-third Psalm. But that is a quibble over a fun read that Haley Joel Osmet would approve highly.

King of Rats by Greg Carrico...what can I say? Greg has a knack for subtle humor and a thrilling story. To pick a favorite in an anthology is something I am hesitant to admit when it is full of writers that I enjoy, but this story rung every bell on my entertainment meter.

To E.A. Poe by Mitzi Flyte is able to convey a great deal of emotion in such a short amount of space. This story may not end with a surprise, which is okay, but it is so poignant that it will stick with you for a while.

An Inconvenient Debt by Natalie G.Owens is one of those stories that hits you with short bursts. It doesn't rely on gimmicks, it is simply a well-woven tale.

Dead Lily Blooms by Lizzie Starr is the kind of story that reels you in and reminds you why you love to read. There is an exotic feel to this story that is more than just a few creative actually transports you.

Beneath Still Waters by Stacey Joy Netzel sends you on your way with an appropriate chill. The dialog is a treat, and reading this out loud to a friend or significant other at bed time is highly recommended if you want an extra cuddle tonight.

Very seldom have I read an anthology that has no weak links or throw away stories. Anthologies by nature are an editor's subjective choices, and he or she hopes that most of the stories will have the same effect on a massive audience as they did on the editor during selection.

Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic collection of stories 16 Oct 2012
By Kelsey Tanner - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The TALES FROM THE MIST anthology is the perfect Halloween read, each story well-written and offering a slightly different flavor of the macabre.

"The Consuming" by Rhonda Hopkins had a chilling Hitchcock feel, and Greg Carrico's "King of Rats" was like a Boardwalk Empire of the sewers.

"Wampus Cat" by bestselling horror author Scott Nicholson gives us a creepy campfire "folklore-gets-real" tale. Stacey Joy Netzel's "Beneath Still Waters" is another take on campfire folklore with a paranormal romance edge that appeals to romance readers like me.

I was impressed by the strong character development in "Haste" by Catie Rhodes and in "An Inconvenient Debt" by Natalie G. Owens. Both deal with brutal murder, Rhodes giving a stunning tale of regret, Owens showing a poignant bond between mother and son.

I am already a fan of Tamara Ward's mysteries, so I wasn't surprised that her haunted house story, "Jade O'Reilly and the Graveyard Shift," had a generous dose of raucous fun. Marty Young's "Addiction" is a dark, psychological story of a youth willing to take a desperate risk in hopes of changing his painful life.

In "To E.A. Poe" Mitzi Flyte offers a unique and intriguing spin-off from the grand master, and lizzie starr's "Dead Lily Blooms" is a clever twist on a vampyre tale.

Like any reader, I had my personal favorites of the collection. Cate Dean's quasi-Twilight Zone-style graveyard story beguiled me and hit the mark with a poignant finish. Meredith Bond's "In A Beginning" turns cartwheels with the Biblical Lilith story. It is funny, engaging and nothing short of brilliant.

Overall, this is an exciting story collection of little gems by very talented authors, giving a taste of each that whet my appetite for reading more. I was given an advance reader copy of Tales from the Mist Highly in exchange for an honest review. Happily, I can highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Anthology of Excellent Quality 3 Oct 2012
By Mallory Anne-Marie Forbes Haws - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
What a happy occasion it is when a reviewer can say about an anthology that the quality is consistently excellent, and that every story included (plus the Foreword) rates a 5. Such is the case with "Tales from the Mist," a collection of twelve stories written by notable authors, each one designed to scintillate, inspire, and chill readers. Author Aiden James, who penned the Foreword, suggests reading with the lights on. This reviewer agrees, but adds, I was still chilled! I don't wish to single out any particular entry-although of course, like any reader I have my personal favourites-but I will say that I am still looking over my shoulder, watching the ground, studying the sky and trees-and holding my breath each time I enter a room. "Tales from the Mist" is that happy medium which can be read at one sitting, or sipped one story at a time, or reread again and again. Much praise to the authors and editors involved-and readers, don't wait, snatch this one up! Whether you save it to savour as Halloween fare, or dip into it right away, don't miss out.

I reviewed an e-book copy in exchange for my fair and impartial review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it 28 April 2013
By Debs - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tales From The Mist is definitely worth buying. I love just being able to get a quick story in every now and then, and most of the stories in the book delivered. Some are chilling, some are sad, and there's a few twists in there as well. I feel safe to say that there's a little bit of something in here for everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spooky Stories 4 Mar 2013
By Skeeter - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
A lot of interesting stories by various authors. Loved them all except one, the reason being it was about rats. The story itself was good, but would have been better with another animal. As you can tell, I don't like rats! Also loved the variety of stories offered. Each one different and thats what kept you going. Fast stories to read, too. Would recommend to anyone over the age of 18.
