5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Anthology
What a treat to have works by all these authors in one book - and at such a bargain price! I have read many of these indie writers before like Peter John (Dead Medium), William O'Brien (Peter, Enchantment and Stardust - The Poems (Peter: A Darkened Fairytale)), Sonya Dodd (Echo of a Siren -- a sequel to Siren Call), Sheryl Seal (Beyond Oria Falls (Dwellers of Ahwahnee)),...

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Anthology, 20 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Tales From Dark Places The Halloween Collection (The Indie Collaboration Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
What a treat to have works by all these authors in one book - and at such a bargain price! I have read many of these indie writers before like Peter John (Dead Medium), William O'Brien (Peter, Enchantment and Stardust - The Poems (Peter: A Darkened Fairytale)), Sonya Dodd (Echo of a Siren -- a sequel to Siren Call), Sheryl Seal (Beyond Oria Falls (Dwellers of Ahwahnee)), Alan Hardy (Gabriella) and D C Rogers (Free Spirit: Heart and Soul). Every one of them is a unique and interesting voice and the short stories presented here are original works commissioned for this anthology. It was great to come across some of these names again, with one or two of them trying on this genre for size for the first time - and with terrific results. I also enjoyed discovering some new names. Really there is so much bang here for your buck. Recommended. The book blurb says this is by 'The Indie Collaboration' - let's hope there are some winners like this in the pipeline!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly Good Tales, 3 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Tales From Dark Places The Halloween Collection (The Indie Collaboration Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
A wonderfully delightful collection of hauntingly good short stories. With each author comes a unique writing style which adds to the mystery of the book, you don't know what to expect in the next. The Halloween collection will no doubt have you checking for monsters under your bed and wondering if those nightmares are real or not. Congratulations to all the authors on an excellent collection. I am looking forward to the the Christmas collaberation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling, blood-curdling collection!, 23 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Tales From Dark Places The Halloween Collection (The Indie Collaboration Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Tales From Dark Places couldn't have been better presented, some great authors having come together to write this chilling, blood-curdling collection! If you haven't read any of these exciting authors, then this book is a must-have, but BEWARE! Because after reading this, life may not remain the same for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of creepy short stories!, 8 Dec. 2013

Sammy K. (Galveston, TX) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Tales From Dark Places The Halloween Collection (The Indie Collaboration Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Tales from Dark Places is a delightfully creepy collection of short stories written by a bunch of authors I was already a fan of. To have them collaborating like this is a lot of fun and also a great way of spreading their names. There's a little bit of everything in this Halloween short story collection, so be prepared for some spine-tingling fun! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars An eclectic mix that allows you to explore the thrill of fear and hear the voices of new authors, 8 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Tales From Dark Places The Halloween Collection (The Indie Collaboration Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I love it when an author takes me to a place I have never visited before, and the wilder the ride—the better! Here, nine authors have joined forces, inviting us to delve into the dark side, where ghosts and goblins are out to get us. What a thrill!

This is an eclectic mix that allows you not only to explore the thrill of fear but also to get to hear new voices in the indie literary field and sample their writing. Pulled together by The Indie Collaboration, this is a collection of nine short stories:

Dinner, Date, and Autopsy by D.C. Rogers
Alone by Sonya S. Dodd
It Started With A Whisper by Peter John
TheVisitor: Melpomene’s Love by Chris Raven
The Goblin Changeling by Sheryl Seal
Bars by Madhu Kalyan Mattararthi
Death’s Track by Alan Hardy
Melinda by Gunjan Vyas
Charlie Featherwick by William O’Brien

For each one of the authors, there is a brief biography at the back of the book, and a list of books for further exploration.

Five stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bunch., 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tales From Dark Places The Halloween Collection (The Indie Collaboration Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Some ok stories, some truly bad ones, no memorable ones. I feel that English might not be a first language for some of the writers.
A suicidal woman has her ghost lover sitting under a canape. The first story was ok, a blatant King rip off, and the last was even worst than the haunted cocktail hour snack.
