{Book Review} Halloween Carnival Volume One edited by Brian James Freeman

This is one helluva way to kick off a new anthology series! This anthology is great!

Strange Candy by Robert McCammon is excellent! A man bites into a ghostly candy hand and he is taken on a journey that will change his Halloween forever. He is tasked with delivering messages from beyond the grave.
5/5 stars!

The Rage of Achilles or When Mockingbirds Sing by Kevin Lucia is great! A man walks into a church to confess on Halloween night. The man’s son was hit by a truck. The man seeks his revenge. The new priest is freaked out and asks about the man. That ending got me!
5/5 stars!

Demon Air by John R. Little is so good! Halle Berry is on a flight from hell. She is flying to Sydney, Australia, but there is something sinister about the flight crew.
5/5 stars!

La Hacienda de los Muertos by Lisa Morton is awesome! A former cowboy star of the silver screen named Trick McGrew doesn’t believe in urban legends or tall tales. All that changes when he visits Mexico, the land of La Llorona. Trick McGrew finds out just how real urban legends can be.
5/5 stars!

#MakeHalloweenScaryAgain by Mark Allan Gunnells is one of the best stories in this anthology! A scarecrow is wreaking havoc on the small town of Greer. Everyone is warned about the consequences of not having your house decorated for Halloween. From start to finish, this story was kick-ass!
5/5 stars!

This anthology is amazing! Each author brought something different to the table, which made it that much stronger. The stories are well balanced and I liked the way they are ordered in the book. I love a good Halloween themed anthology, and this one didn’t disappoint. The cover is cool as well! I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this anthology series!

I highly recommend this anthology to fans of horror and Halloween!

5/5 stars!
