Deadlines: An Anthology of Horror and Dark Fiction edited by Cheryl Mullenax and published by Comet Press, has some of the scariest stories wrapped together in one convenient package. Stories that grab a hold of your breath refusing to give it back until you turn the next page. Authors such as Michael A. Kechula, Shaun Ryan are just two of the twenty that appear with their gruesome, thrilling and amazing stories in this Anthology.
The best part of this Anthology is that not one story is alike. So each story you dive into has a new taste, a new flavor that you can enjoy as each and every word is devoured into a glorious feast. Horror is certainly what this Anthology is about as you are taken through plagues, strange events, gore, gruesome killings and other Horror situations that leave you stunned, scared and often times a question of ‘if this really happened now what?’
I would advise when reading this that you are not the faint of heart. The stories will grab a hold of you, taking you to a place not yet seen by your eyes. Perhaps in an instant, the stories will leave you in that place, forever trapping your mind to the events, characters and thoughts that leave you frighten, yet with an urge to move forward.
Nothing can reach you as much as this collection can and nothing will entice you to be more cautious of what lurks in those corners at night or under the bed when you go to sleep in the dark. Take with you the words of these authors that will hold your attention, give you a place for your fears and hold on to whatever feelings you have left.
Deadlines: An Anthology of Horror and Dark Fiction is being sold at Amazon.com.
I would suggest you pick up a copy and let your soul do the reading for you!
