Screams from the Dark: 29 Tales of Monsters and the Monstrous

We rated this book:


Monster stories have been told since the beginning of time. The genre only continues to evolve. From vampires to witches to the thing that lives in the sea, monsters are all around us. Even your least favorite uncle could be a monster. With all these creatures around, it’s good that we have Screams from the Dark: 29 Tales of Monsters and the Monstrous, a new release from Tor Nightfire Publishing. Curated and edited by Ellen Datlow (of Omni and Sci Fiction fame), this is an anthology that any true horror aficionado will be dying to read.

This collection of the who’s who of horror and sci-fi writers includes Stephen Graham Jones, Richard Kadrey, Cassandra Khaw, and many more. Their tales range from the humorous to the grotesque. Each story is an original work and every one is immensely imaginative. Many of the monster stories have their origins in folklore that spans the globe from this exceptional group of international writers. The abominations in this book are as diverse as the brains from which they came. That scream you hear in the dark just might be someone reading form this book. It is that monstrously good.
