Top Customer Reviews

By Ginger Nuts TOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 July 2016
Format: Paperback
My first introduction to the work of The Sinister Horror Company came through reading the eclectic and electric Black Room Manuscripts Volume 1. Edited by Daniel Marc Chant, this was a fantastic anthology showcasing the diversity of voices writing in horror fiction today. So when it was announced that a second volume was forthcoming under the editorial steer of another of the Company’s triumvirate, Justin Park, I was all ears. Would it be a case of lightening striking twice? Well, the answer would be an emphatic “yes.”

The Black Room Manuscripts Volume 2 is a blistering anthology chock full of nuggets of writing gold just waiting to be unearthed for your reading pleasure. Kudos must go to Justin Park for assembling another great line up of authors, some were known to me but there are many writers here whose work I hadn’t encountered before and, after reading their contributions, will be on the look out for more. I think that’s one of the things that I really like about this anthology, the fact that it isn’t all name authors. Another thing that I really enjoyed about this particular volume is the fact that it elicited a lot of strong memories and reminiscing about various aspects of horror and dark fiction. At points I felt like was back in my teenage bedroom furtively reading lurid horror novels late at night. At others it reminded me of that quote from either Bloch or King, “I have the heart of a little boy, I keep it in a jar on my desk” whilst simultaneously thinking of Roald Dahl and those wonderfully black humoured EC comics of the 1950s, all unexpected twists and gruesome fates. There’s been a lot of that type of thinking whilst reading this book and the fact that it evokes such powerful thoughts from me must indicate that we are onto a winner.

There are some cracking stories in here.

Unfortunately the rather naff ones started to show their ugly faces part way through the book and there were 5 that I thought were just childish attempts to shock or predictable simplistic writing.

However the good stories were uniformly better than good so I think there's a lot in here for horror aficionados to really appreciate.

I have always liked anthologies as a way to introduce myself to new authors. It helps more when two of my favorites are also in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ranges widely in theme and quality, but worth your time. 22 July 2016
By David Dubrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The problem with reviewing a charity anthology is that if you give it anything less than a positive rating, you run the risk of shorting the charity in some way. So how to tackle The Black Room Manuscripts Volume 2, the profits of which are set to be donated to Alzheimer’s Research UK? With honesty, of course. Every piece of writing must be judged on its outcome, not its intentions.

Lacking an organizing theme, the anthology encompasses a broad variety of horror motifs, from zombie apocalypse to dead man’s perspectives to Cthulhuesque beasts beneath the earth. Quality also ranges far and wide: some tales were merely banal descriptions of brutality placed under the endlessly-redefined rubric of horror, while others brought scares, revulsion, and pathos in brief, self-contained narratives: the essence of a good horror short. The highlights of the anthology include:

Spores by Jack Rollins. It goes where you expect, but has great power in its graphic description of fungoid horrors.

Graham Masterton’s What the Dark Does packs a lot of story into a small package. Fans of Masterton will find much to like about this tale.

Familial love and parental responsibility get a wrenching workout in Nathan Robinson’s The Glen.

Not quite a horror story, but a sad, sweet tale of loneliness, death, and what lies beyond, The Vile Glib of Gideon Wicke by Lily Childs is arguably the best story in the collection.

Stuart Park’s Oranges are Orange is a terribly creepy, tragic tale, one that puts you deeper than you’d ever want to go into the mind of someone profoundly damaged.

Unforgettable in concept, Dr. Lynne Campbell’s Backbone Isn’t Always Enough ekes out a spot among the top stories despite the weakness in narrative.

Jasper Bark’s And the Light Is His Garment takes a well-known story to its bitterest conclusion, making it a cautionary tale for truth-tellers in a time of beloved illusion.

While it lacks surprises, Laura Mauro’s Terry in the Bed by the Window is a good, old-fashioned horror tale, made credible by her obvious knowledge of the subject matter.

In a collection of 21 short stories written by a virtual who’s who of the UK’s indie horror scene, you’re more than likely going to find that your entertainment money was well-spent on The Black Room Manuscripts Volume 2, with the added bonus of the profit going to a worthy cause.

I do not want to give this any stars because I could not find a story. Only manuscripts.
