    The Summer Slasher Horror Anthology is riveting from start to finish. Each and every story delves into its own world of horror. Without a doubt, this collection of short stories is worth checking out!

    You'd be forgiven for thinking that Summer Slasher Horror Anthology Vol. 1 is a collection of slasher stories, given the title. It's not; only one of these stories conceivably falls under that category. That doesn't mean it's not worth a read though. The editors have gathered an incredibly solid collection of horror stories here, especially so given that these authors are all fairly little known. Aside from the fact they're not slashers, these stories have little in common with each other, apart You'd be forgiven for thinking that Summer Slasher Horror Anthology Vol. 1 is a collection of slasher stories, given the title. It's not; only one of these stories conceivably falls under that category. That doesn't mean it's not worth a read though. The editors have gathered an incredibly solid collection of horror stories here, especially so given that these authors are all fairly little known. Aside from the fact they're not slashers, these stories have little in common with each other, apart from a generally high quality. Mark Braught's "Best Friends Forever" is a bittersweet Halloween tale, while "Intermission: Death at Weddings" by Bonnie Medford is dark poetry. The haunting "Death Comes in Threes" by Greg Bhatia takes place during the London Blitz, while Austin C. Nichols's "Beneath the Boat" is a creature feature set on the open ocean. The two best stories are the longer entries, "Cold Canaries" by Kristen Reid and "Walking With Strangers" by Dawn Major. In Reid's chilling tale, a group of miners find themselves trapped underground and being picked off one by one. In Major's, the tension is ratcheted up as a little girl faces one obstacle after another trying to get home from school on her own. Terrors both fanciful and deadly real make this one truly harrowing. Ultimately, Summer Slasher may not scratch your itch for a literary Friday the 13th, but it will introduce you to a collection of talented up and coming writers you might otherwise miss out on.

    Great series of shorts. Cabin 28 is truly disturbing!!! It’s about 2 pages long, but enough to completely creep me out! Loved Death Don’t Kiss! Also, Walking with Strangers. There was only one in the lot that wasn’t mediocre. I know this was printed as a summer series, but it would be good as a Autumn series too.

    It's such a rare thing for me to read a short story anthology all the way through, but I zipped through this one with gusto. Lots of wonderful creepy stories. Not every one as good as the other, but all entertaining in their own way. I definitely recommend this!

    A nice little horror anthology! I'm a tad biased, but I loved "Better Boy" by Juliet Rose the best...I'll never look at tomato sammiches the same way again! A nice little horror anthology!
