Here Be Monsters - An Anthology of Monster Tales [Kindle Edition]

M.T. Murphy - Blackmail.
S.M. Reine - Something Wrong.
India Drummond - The Reaver.
Anabel Portillo - Lux.
Jeremy C. Shipp - Figs.
Samantha Anderson - Deals and Demons.
Sara Reinke - Periphery People.
M.T. Murphy - Spider Bag.

This collection of short horror tales is a bit of a Curate's Egg, some of the stories are good and some less so.

Four of the anthology stood out for me. I did like the two humourous offerings from M.T.Murphy, and Sara Reinke's Periphery People was well crafted and the type of creepy narrative that give the reader a chill as they recognise a common enough familiarity of feeling. The Reaver by India Drummond was more science-fiction than horror but again is a well written tale very reminiscent of the 1950's pulp sci-fi magazines.

I will certainly look out for other works by some of these writers.

This was free to download. I like a good horror tale, but did not find these to be great.
I liked "The Reaver" the most. I would class this more as fantasy, but it was a good yarn.
"Blackmail" was also not too bed, I could take or leave the rest.
Definitely worth downloading and reading.

There are some good stories in this assortment, some that really hold your attention and others that make you wonder where are they taking you? All in all this book will give you some ideal of the authors style of writing and how good they are at keeping you engrossed!

This is one of the best horror short story collections I have read. The stories were of the highest standard.

Beautifully written and vivid I would highly recommend this to fans of the genre and even those who are not.

Stories are not scary lack substance and are difficult to get any feeling or continuity from maybe they just don't appeal to me
