(I freely admit to some bias as my story "The Society of the Monsterhood" is in this anthology) Very cool collection of horror/dark fiction set in cities. Nathan Ballingrud's story "The Maw" kicked my ass, dragged me out into the city square, and then kicked my ass some more. Ow.

Christopher Golden has assembled some A-grade writers for this anthology of speculative tales that sees horrors lurking deep within the city streets. I do like a themed anthology, and when authors such as Tim Lebbon, Jonathan Maberry, Joe R. Lansdale Kealan Patrick Burke and Seanan McGuire are in...

Sometimes I read anthologies from front to back, first to last as they appear. Other times I skip around, picking out the authors I know I like and then going back to pick up the ones that are new to me or that I haven't been overly impressed with previously. Luckily, this time I indulged in the...

This anthology plays with a great theme and has some cracking stories in it. Not all of them worked for me, a couple of real misses, though taste is arbitrary, of course. But the good ones are outstanding and make the cover price worthwhile. Standouts for me included stories by Nathan Ballingrud,...

1.5 stars that I gave 2.5 solely because of Seanan McGuire's offering, which was, undoubtedly, a breath of fresh air in comparison to the rest of the book. The authors, I feel, all chose to go weird esoteric and kind of Pan's Labyrinth-y but not in a way that gave any sort of narrative fulfillment...

This has some absolutely excellent short stories in not all of which are blatantly horror but a rather strong stomach is required to get past the first story which does involve a form of bestiality. The final story by M.R Carey is however brilliant and really the sort of thing to stop you sleepin...

TW: bestiality, rape I have to seriously question the thought process of Christopher Golden in choosing to put The Dogs as the first story in this anthology. I question why it was even included in the anthology, but if it were to be included, it should not have been the first story. Yes, this is a...

https://thebookloversboudoir.wordpres... Dark Cities is a great collection of contemporary horror stories. I love it. I thought every story was great. The stories are not what you traditionally think of as horror stories, but the tales are dark and sinister. I loved every one. The stories are dark...

It's near impossible to give anthologies five stars but this one got close. There are some truely amazing yarns in this one, led by Scott Smith and Nick Cutter. Not every story hit the mark - but it was more of a personal taste thing than a quality factor - but more than often they did. Consisten...
