Book Review – Halloween Carnival Volume 1 – Spooky Shorts

Halloween Carnival Volume 1

Why I read:  Horror short stories

Book blurb: ” Robert McCammon, Kevin Lucia, John R. Little, Lisa Morton, and Mark Allan Gunnells put the horror back in Halloween with a quintet of devilishly delightful tales, curated by acclaimed author and editor Brian James Freeman.

My review

Halloween Carnival volume 1 is short collection of Halloween spooky tales.  At only 165 pages its a nice length to sample a few new authors.   All well written entertaining stories themed around Halloween with an urban legend vibe to them.   They were original and fun peeks at the darker side of life. However I found them spooky rather than scary.     I especially enjoyed the modern feel of #MAKEHALLOWEENSCARYAGAIN with its references to social media.   These stories would be perfect to curl up in front of the fire on a stormy winter night.

I’d recommend to anyone who enjoys short spooky horror stories.
