When you look at your shelves…what authors do you see? I see a lot of diversity in some of my genres. But not as much within the genre that I read the most…horror. When Eric J. Guignard contacted me to review a book that has horror stories from around the world I jumped at the chance. To say that I am happy that I did would be an understatement. I fell like my horror world opened up after reading A World of Horror.
Synopsis: Horror and dark speculative fiction anthology with stories from around the world.
What I liked: Anthologies can be hard to review. In this case it isn’t. All the stories range from 4.5 to 5 stars for me. I love hearing all the different voices from around the world and seeing the different stories. I had heard of a couple of authors but most were new to me. The stories in the anthology were well chosen and fit together well. I loved the amount of women that were featured in this anthology. I felt like I was able to get a glimpse into the world of horror in each of these different countries and I loved that.
What I didn’t like: There was nothing that I didn’t like about the anthology.
Star Rating: 4.5 Stars
My thoughts: I want to read more stories from around the world. The fact that all these authors where in one place was amazing. I will be diving down the rabbit hole of gathering more of their stories in the new year. I would love if Dark Moon Books would put out another one of these anthologies. I think they are awesome as they list so many new too reader authors. So please Dark Moon and Mr. Guignard please put out another one!!
A BIG THANKS to Eric J. Guignar for sending me a review copy!!
