Including 'Faux Joe' by M.J. McClymont


"Full of slick storytelling, deft turns of phrase, and thick with atmosphere, this is nice mixture of old-school quiet horror and the modern violent variety. It would make a great episode of “The Twilight Zone”."

- Welcome to the Hellforge (Review of 'A Darker Sound', Heavy Metal Nightmares)

Praise & Reviews

'Creeping with the occultist subject matter and over-the-top nature of the 70's and 80's pulp classics, such as found within much of Guy N Smith's work.  Zach Black's contribution to the anthology throws in buckets of blood, gore, satanic rituals and horror-tastic suspense. There's no sitting around waiting for the plot to be painstakingly laid down here.  Black launches the reader straight into the thick of the satanic mayhem that forms this action packed short. An explosion of horror delights!'

-Review of 'Hell's Horseman' (M is for Monster)

'"Running with the Dead" is a memorable vignette exploring the vitality and freedom death could offer.'

-Review of 'Running with the Dead' (ALT_DEAD)
