What a great anthology! I really enjoyed it. Some of the stories were phenomenal and there was only one I really disliked. Overall, I’m very impressed with how original and strange some of these were. I feel like the authors really dared to do something different here. Although none of these stories scared me, I still found them to be creepy and eerie. If you’re in the mood for something fitting for Halloween, definitely pick this one up.
