  • I will be the first to admit that I am not normally a huge fan of the short story form, so this was a jolly good wake-up call to my previous avoidance of them, maybe having read too many bad ones- so thank you contributors! What strikes me most about this collection is the sheer quality of writing on display, and the imaginative mix of ideas on show, to fulfil the remit of crossing genres in such a condensed writing form. I have a personal mission this year to read more ‘crossover’ crime so [...]


  • A beautiful collection of dark and weird and entertaining stories. Stand outs for me were:Across the Border by Hector AcostaA Mark in Blue by Paul D BrazillThe Darkness Cult by Jennifer MartinA Diabolical Liberty by Jason MichelEvil and Life by Asher WismerCharred Kraken with Plum Butter by Christopher L. IrvinTrain Track by W.P. JohnsonIf you like your stories packed with weird, strange, bizarre, colorful, deadly, and horrific characters - and not necessarily in easily defined good/evil roles - [...]


  • Some book covers are layered and highly detailed. This one is very simple but that is the beauty of it. Bold and clear with just a hint of weirdness. It sets up the rest of the book perfectly. The first part of this book is the introduction by the editor. K.A.Laity is a really interesting lady with a wide range of interesting credits. It doesn’t surprise me that she was involved in this project. The first part of the introduction was really interesting and discussed the sub-genre of weird noir [...]


  • This anthology was recommended to me as something I might enjoy and if not for that I may have missed this title altogether. I am more than grateful for the recommendation as it is an extremely well put together book.The introduction by the editor pretty much explains the criteria for the stories to be accepted into the anthology and she does a great job of enticing readers to check out all the stories with her passionate description of the cross-genres of "weird" and "noir".I found myself quite [...]


  • This one is worth the price of admission for Jan Kozlowski's "Corkscrewed" and Christopher L. Irvin's "Charred Kraken with Plum Butter" alone. Other stand outs for me were Hector Acosta's "Across the Border and "Train Tracks" by W.P. Johnson. This is great stuff if you like it dark and weird (and who doesn't?).


  • Chris Irvin is a great up and coming writer! The world of the Underbelly that Irvin creates in his story, “Charred Kraken with Plum Butter”, is incredibly vivid with rich detail and characters. I am secretly hoping for future stories from Irvin that feature the harsh Underbelly lit by moon slugs and fake stars.I also really enjoyed W.P. Johnson's "Train Tracks".


  • I really enjoyed these tales of vampires, werewolves and other strange creatures. Some were spine-tingling, others humorous. The great thing about short-story collections is that you dip into them at any time and read them in any order you choose.


  • Awesome collection of short stories. Great read for any occasion, and best of all-I'm an author in it! Proud to list this book as one I contributed to!


  • An uneven collection, but hard-boiled weirdness abounds. You may have to wade through a silly Godzilla-as-detective story to get to, say, the Wonder Woman and Dracula in a bar story that you do like, but if you persist, the Good Stories, like the Truth, are Out There. Recommended for the idea more than the execution.


  • Bought this book because it's hard to find, and I'm glad it's mine, and wish it was more readily available. Laity pulled the collection together and I'd love to read the Call for Entries. The stories in the book are scifi/fantasy with pulp fiction leanings. I have favorites which I'm not going to list here, because you'll want to find your own. I wrote/drew a collection of noir cards years ago and those writings are still among my favorites. Quirky, funny, dark, highly entertaining.
