By I. R. Kerr TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 Jan. 2014
Format: Paperback
Volume 10 in this series is another pretty decent collection of tales laced with stories of obsession, dysfunctional families, evil children and a few seasonal offerings thrown in for good measure. It's a mix of lots of the elements that make horror short stories such a good read with plenty dark humour, some often disturbing violence and even an old dark house tale thrown in for good measure.

Stiff (Angela Blake) - a young girl's obsession with sex goes a little too far.
The Easter Bunny (Tom Johnstone) - a man wants to spend Easter with his estranged son to teach him the real meaning of Easter.
The Last Testament of Jacob Tyler (David Surface) - set in 19th century America, a man takes a job as a gun for hire to help clean out a town.
The War Effort (Carl P. Thompson) - nice black comedy, what are you willing to do to help our troops fighting abroad.
The Pre-Raphaelite Painting (David Sutton)- a man is obsessed with the image of a woman in a painting.
Christmas in the Rain (Chris Lawton) - thrown out of her home 16 year old Abbie sleeps rough in Edinburgh whilst a killer stalks the streets
Deeper Than Dark Water (Gary Power) - another black comedy involving a mad scientist
Marshwall (Paul Finch) - Marissa & Duncan visit her old family home with faint echoes of The Woman in Black.
Exploding Raphaelesque Heads (Ian Hunter) - an obsession with taking a photograph as close as possible to a disturbing painting by Dali.
The Best Christmas Ever (John Llewellyn Probert) - you will probably guess what's coming for Christmas but it's a dark journey on route.
The Pygmalion Conjuration (Mike Chinn) - ignored by women Dennis Crawleigh turns to magic to make him more attractive.

The Black book of horror is my favourite series. So much horror nowadays is psychological and "smart". It just bores me. What I want are dark alleys and the monsters who are out for blood. Preferably mine. If find them in the Black books.

Of course, not all stories are good. Some of them are actually pretty bad. But at least they are all trying to scare the reader, and that is all I am asking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Anthology is a Black Book of Horror 9 Jan. 2014
By Monique Snyman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anthologies aren’t necessarily the type of books that readers sit around and wait for. They are short story collections that sometimes feature an author you like and maybe you’ll pick it up just to see what your favourite author’s been up to. Anthologies are sadly at the bottom of the reader’s food-chain (along with novellas and novelettes) and they’re a dime a dozen for most. However, that’s just generally speaking, of course…

Every year, I patiently wait for Charles Black and Mortbury Press to release their next Black Book of Horror. I anticipate its release just like I anticipate the next book release from some of my other favourite authors. The Black Book of Horror goes onto my ‘must-read’ list long before the next book is even announced to the public. Why? Well, it’s simple really… I can honestly say, without a doubt, that The Black Book of Horror is the best bloody anthology out there. I’m not kidding, The Black Books of Horror are proudly on display in my library, in one of the most honourable spots I could manage (on the top right shelf, between Kim Newman and James P. Blaylock’s books).

I love the artwork by Paul Mudie (sir, you have a die-hard fan right here), I love the fact that there are little to no editing errors, and I absolutely adore how meticulous Charles Black is when he selects the stories that will feature in the book. It’s not just another anthology… The Black Books of Horror will never be just another anthology…

No, The Black Books of Horror are the embodiment of proper horror literature, filled with stories that will thrill and chill readers from the beginning to the end. But what makes these books so incredibly special is that although you know you’re going to get quality, you’ll still be pleasantly surprised by the content.

The Tenth Black Book of Horror is no different in that regard. It comprises of 15 tales that will stay with you long after you’ve switched off the lights, and although one of these stories didn’t exactly tickle my fancy in the usual way, I’ll admit that I was still tickled. That being said, there are some remarkable pieces in this book. Now, as always I don’t go out and review each and every story in an anthology, I review the book in a whole. However, I have to take off my hat to David A. Sutton for his story The Pre-Raphaelite Painting, Carl P. Thompson for The War Effort, Thana Niveau for Guinea Pig Girl (I’d love to see that story be made into a movie) and Paul Finch for Marshwall. These are some excellent stories from excellent authors, but even those I didn’t name outright still had a way of scaring me, so that definitely counts.

All in all, if you haven’t gotten your hands on one of these books yet, you’re really missing out on a lot of awesome tales. The Black Books of Horror have a lot to offer readers who love horror, and each one of these anthologies are little gems you wouldn’t be able to put down, so do yourself a favour and get your hands on them. You won’t be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just barely made 3 stars – lots of stories were substandard 9 Sept. 2014
By Melanie Z. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wasn't that impressed with most of the stories in this book – many of them seem to be just depictions of violence without any real plot. There were a few good ones, such as The Last Wagon on the Train, about a mysterious stagecoach in the middle of the desert and the unfortunate criminal who runs into it, which at least built some suspense, and Marshwall, about a haunted rocking horse, which was at least somewhat original – and to a lesser extent Guinea Pig Girl, about a snuff movie star who haunts a young man, these were all somewhat decent – but the rest of the stories were pretty poorly written and I really would rather give this 2 1/2 stars than 3, but I'm feeling generous
5.0 out of 5 stars This is what one expects to find in a book calling itself a horror anthology. 1 Jun. 2015
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an awesome book, and the more you're aware of the trends in horror literature...the more the awesome nature of this book will resonate with you...Everything that a horror anthology should be, no question...
4.0 out of 5 stars Dependable Horror 8 Jun. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As one of the many horror anthology series Mr. Black's stands out for his dependably excellent selections. If you have missed the first 9 books of this series it is worthwhile to track them down.
