    Pretty good anthology for Halloween, and several stories gave me the willies I started with mini reviews for each of the stories, but then got lazy Aside from the ones below, I liked Palisado , Ghost Writer in My Eye , I Found a Little Hole , and Mole A couple of stories got a little squicky, but I suppose that is to be expected in the horror genre.Rating each story varies in the type and intensity of the content, throughout the book there is a range from PG to R, for strong language f words , violence, gore, some sexuality strong in one or two stories.Serial 4 5 Super creepy little story about two sketchy folks who happen to encounter each other and trouble ensues view spoiler He s a serial killer who picks up hitchhikers, and she s a serial killer who is a hitchhiker He tortures his victims, she drugs hers and drags them naked behind their car He picks her up, they altercate, both end up being chained to the car as it rolls down the steep grade and die miserable deaths hide spoiler

    This anthology I thought was well done Without being too spoiley, some of the stories were very out of the box, which is what I enjoy One story, for me , stood out Trouble Follows, by David B Silva was one of those masterpieces that is SO rare these days Stephen King also had, for the first time in print, The Crate, which was made into a short for the movie Creepshow in the 80s If you like top notch writing and don t mind reading 410 pages, since some are novella stories you WILL enjoy this book Happy reading

    On the whole, I enjoyed this anthology Although not all the stories were to my taste I mostly prefer supernatural horror non supernatural stories need to be especially atmospheric to hold my attention , there is a fine piece by Peter Straub, and a Stephen King story that is rarely anthologized Also worth noting is Palisado, a neat atmospheric piece by one of the major figures in the 80s quiet horror movement One piece that disappointed me was The Old Ways From the name, I was expecting some rad Wicker Man style folk horror, but it turned out to be about the generation gap I will also mention Serial although it was not really my type of horror I think serial killers are overdone , I thought that the premise was rather amusing Still worth reading, even if just for the King story.

    Richard Chizmar is the editor of Cemetery Dance, both a quarterly magazine and a publishing house that specializes in horror dark fantasy As is obvious by the title, Shivers VI is the sixth entry in a series of horror dark fantasy anthologies featuring original i.e., not previously published stories from a number of writers, including Brian Keene, Al Sarrantonio, Lisa Tuttle, Melanie Tem, David Silva, Peter Straub and Stephen King, among others As always, some stories struck me forcefully than others The anthology got off to a great start with Serial, a collaboration between authors Blake Crouch and Jack Kilborn in which they ponder what might happen if a serial killer of hitch hikers picked up a serial killer hitch hiker, nicely conflating two strong urban legends and I also enjoyed Stephen King s Crate, about what might be lurking in long untouched university storage rooms Norman Prentiss The Old Ways in which a modern young woman comes across some very old fashioned values in the small town to which she and her husband have moved Like Lick Em Sticks, Like Tina Fey, the cleverly titled vampire story by Glen Hirshberg Al Sarrantonio s Last, which is science fiction than horror and Lisa Tuttle s Bits and Pieces, a delightful dark fantasy about what our lovers leave behind when they leave our lives The volume ends with Peter Straub s novella, A Special Place The Heart of a Dark Matter, which details the childhood and adolescent development of a serial killer I found it well done, if gory, up until the end and then I felt quite disappointed because the story just stopped, and I wanted Which I suppose can be seen as a positive response, when you think about it.Obviously this anthology will not be to everyone s taste, but if you have the stomach for it, the writing is of a very high caliber throughout and you may find a new favourite author or three between its covers recommended for those who can stand it

    On the whole a resolutely mediocre anthology, containing despite the cover surprisingly little supernatural fiction Two crime stories by Peter Straub and Brian Hodge are among its best entries there are also nifty exercises in unclassifiable bizarrarie by Nate Southard, a writer new to me, and the late, very much lamented Alan Ryan, returning all too briefly to a field in which he was once a dominant figure.

    I received this book through GoodReads giveaway and I m so glad I did because it contains a short story by Stephen King called The Crate , which is a previously unpublished story The first story in the collection called Serial This short story is about what might happen when two serial killers meet All the stories were well written and each had its own unique plot line I would definitely recommend this book.

    Extremely varied collection of short fiction, ranging from excellent to really bad stories My favorite was the opener, Blake Crouch and Jack Kilborn s Serial From there, the stories go up and down in quality And Brian Keene s contribution is one page long Okay overall, but I wouldn t spend money on a book like this Glad it was at my local library
