Halloween Carnival, Volume Two - Brian James Freeman
Halloween Carnival Volume 2 - Glen Hirshberg,Lee Thomas,Holly Newstein,Del James,Brian James Freeman

With Halloween right around the corner, let's get right into this collection.

 

 

Mr. Dark's Carnival - Glen Hirshberg

 

 

A Montana ghost story thats got some nice creepiness. David is a college professor that teaches a class that explores folklore and his favorite part of the course is the folk tale of Mr. Dark's Carnival. For many years, it has been rumored that the mysterious carnival pops up in a rural setting and only a few select people get chosen to attend. David has never met anyone that has personally been to the carnival and doesn't believe it truly exists until he gets his ticket. A great ghost story that has a murky ending.

The Facts in the Case of My Sister - Lee Thomas

 

 

David's estranged sister, Joyce, is in the hospital from an "accident". The prognosis isn't good and David has doubts that her injuries were from an accident. When Joyce and he were kids, David taught himself how to do magic tricks from a book he got. Joyce was always his willing audience and participant. Now, David pulls out a trick from his past to learn what really happened to Joyce.

Mischief Night - Holly Newstein

 

 

Willard had a good life, a loving family and wife, and looked forward to his retirement. He was never a drinker after growing up with a nasty old drunk for a father. In what seemed like a harmless way to celebrate his retirement, the bottle grabs ahold of Willard and doesn't let go. On Mischief Night, Willard meets a troubled teen that stumbles into his basement. Can one man's bad decisions help alter the path the youngster is headed down?

The Ghost Maker - Del James

 

 

Halloween has it's own set of scares when you're a mob hit man. You have to be on your toes, even if you're the grim reaper. Great voice that makes for a fun read.

The Pumpkin Boy - Al Sarrantonio

 

 

Jody is a latchkey kid for half an hour every afternoon until his mom gets home. He knows he's not supposed to be outside and he follows that rule. Until, one day, he sees the Pumpkin Boy walking past his window and he can't believe his eyes. For police detective, Len Schneider, Jody's disappearance is bringing back old, haunted memories that he's been trying to lock away for 18 years. What started out as a promising novella, fell flat for me with the ending.

 

 

3 out of 5 stars

 

 


Overall, a nice little collection with mostly hits than misses. Well worth the time.

Halloween is coming and it times to get in the mood. I love a good scary or creepy story.  This book has 4 of them. They were more on the creepy side then scary but I as happy with the book. This is the 2nd book in a series. I am not real sure how many books are in the series.  I do have have books 2 through 5 so far. Each story in this book is written by a different person. The writers all have their own style of writing and you can that through this book.  I enjoyed all 4 stories. If I had to pick a favorite it would be the one by Lee Thomas. It is named The Facts in the Case of My Sister. My choice is not to say that their was anything wrong with the others I just liked it better. This is a short book and a quick read, but well worth it. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Motherless Child (Motherless Children Trilogy) - Glen Hirshberg

considering it's short and movin' fast, this has been a wild, intricate ride so far. got gory, a bit...I expected that. and the two leads are fun to watch in tragic action. nice to be back inside a good Horror novel!

Motherless Child (Motherless Children Trilogy) - Glen Hirshberg

I'm a little leery of gushing about good starts to novels, as of now; the last bunch of books I've run through have started strong--I've come on and reported the news to you--and back halves have faltered, and, in one case, crashed and burned an entire book. BUT. okay. let's try this again. I realized I was starving for a Horror novel--I guess it was that skull on the Haitian Graves cover (that was a Mystery, by the way)--so I went to Motherless Child with hope, based on the blurbs of praise, and notices that this author competes for awards, all that stuff...and--tentatively this time--I love this book, so far. I mean, I love the START of Motherless Child. very well done. I'm happy. let me stay happy this time...
