The Horror Collection: Silver Edition is yet another amazing collection of short stories organized by Kevin J. Kennedy!
This collection was so much fun to read! It had tales that ranged from wicked creepy to totally bizarre; I loved every second of it!
Full Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my rating in any way.
Let’s dive in!
My Thoughts on The Horror Collection: Silver Edition by Kevin J. Kennedy
Per usual, here are my very quick notes on each story:
Won’t You Open the Door? by Steve Stred – 5 Stars
What a creepy tale to begin the collection! This is one of those stories that will make you nervous to hear a knock at the door during the night… I loved the eerie atmosphere and the really dark premise. And an old crone that hovers above the ground?! So spooky.
Hooch and Honey by Kevin J. Kennedy – 5 Stars
I loved this one!! I immediately felt for the main character and worried about what he was getting himself into with these older men. The alcohol aspect was interesting, both as the boy learns how to drink it and sees where it comes from. This is a wonderful love story with a bit of the bizarre!
The Blood-Soaked Branches of the Bullingdon Family Tree by Lex H. Jones – 4 Stars
Yikes! What a horrific tale! Poor Jenna… Right from the start, this one had a creep factor and it just got more and more intense as the tale went on.
Death, She Said by Edward Lee – 3 Stars
Yikes! How terrifying. I’m not a huge fan of tales that center around suicide, but I did enjoy the Christmas Carol aspect with the past, present, and future.
Forbidden Fruit by Calvin Demmer – 4 Stars
Oh, this one was so fun! I was so curious to see where this one was going after finding out that the characters are poachers. The ending was wonderfully satisfying.
My Final Thoughts on The Horror Collection: Silver Edition
This one was a quicker read for me compared to some of the other collections, but it still packed a punch! I absolutely loved it. These are definitely more tales that are going to sick with me!
I would highly recommend this one to fans of lighter horror, or for people that don’t read horror but want to try it out!
