Review and Giveaway – Dark Screams Volume Four – Brian James Freeman (Editor) and Richard Chizmar (Editor)

The Dark Screams anthologies edited by Richard Chizmar and Brian James Freeman have been pretty solid in terms of great short horror stories, but Dark Screams Volume Four is the first one where I enjoyed every single story in the volume. Horror heavy hitters such as Clive Barker and Heather Graham are featured and aren’t […]

  Hydra has published solid horror titles this year, and after reading and loving Consumption by Heather Herrman, I dug right in to William Todd Rose’s novella, Crossfades.

Becca barely makes it through one class of her graduate school career for a business degree before deciding to call it quits. She doesn’t feel like she belongs there with the young, straight-out-of-undergrad people or that she can really devote two years of her life to this degree right now. Her life has been rather […]
