S.M. Reine - Something Wrong.
India Drummond - The Reaver.
Anabel Portillo - Lux.

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.
