Kill Creek ★★★★☆
Kill Creek - Scott Thomas,Bernard Setaro Clark

How many ghost stories have I read where a group of people are invited to spend the night in a supposedly haunted house? Well, I don’t know, but it seems like about a gazillion. This one, though, was just different enough to thoroughly enjoy the modern twist where the guests are all horror authors – although each of very different and distinct styles – and the host is a celebrity producer of viral internet marketing schemes. While each character is a Type, they are not caricatures, and even the most dislikeable ones are still sympathetic in some way. The story is a bit of a slow burn, where there are merely hints of the unexplainable through the first half, but there will be plenty of graphic blood and gore by the end, with a final twist that took me by surprise.

 

I read this for the 2018 Halloween Bingo square Modern Masters of Horror: horror published in or after 2000. Kill Creek was published in 2017.

Audiobook, via Audible. I really enjoyed the narration by  Bernard Setaro Clark.

Lullaby ★★★★☆
Lullaby - Scott Brick,Jonathan Maberry

Entirely predictable haunted house story, but still very enjoyable. The author does a fine job of creating the spooky atmosphere and mood and imagery, even if the plot and characters were a little thin. I think Scott Brick's excellent narration elevates it. 

 

Audiobook short story, free for download as part of their new 2 freebies/month Audible Originals perks for members.
