Okay, so the first thing to say about this is that it’s not really an unbiased review because that’s basically impossible. I have a story in this collection, and I’m also friends with a few of the authors. Still, I’ll give it a go.
This book is an anthology that was compiled by Cam Wolfe and which features a bunch of different horror shorts by indie writers and YouTubers which are grouped together around the theme of travel and being away from home.
Some of them were better than others, but you’re always going to have that with an anthology like this. There was also at least one writer, who shall remain nameless, who doesn’t know how to use apostrophes. But there were also some real gems, like Jeremy Fee’s The Ghost of Walt Whitman, so I can’t be too mad.
There’s also a story called Not in Tamworth Anymore by a guy called Dane Cobain that you should probably check out, and it was a pleasure to read some more of Cam’s work, too. He also did a great job with arranging the layout, the cover design and the editing, although there were one or two little niggling formatting issues here and there.
But overall, for a community-based indie horror anthology, it’s a pretty decent read and definitely one that I would have checked out and recommended even if I hadn’t been in it because of the other authors. There’s a lot of talent in our community.
And besides, there’s also the fact that the proceeds from this one go to charity, which is always good. It was an honour to be able to help out in my own little way.
