Weekend Reads: “Dark Visions”

As you all know, this is the anthology that features my award-winning tale, “Ghosts of Tupelo.” I finished reading Dark Visions in its entirety a little bit ago and wanted to share my thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Disclosure up front: my award-winning story, “Ghosts of Tupelo,” is in this book. My review applies to the other tales contained therein.

It’s been my experience that anthologies are uneven. Some of the stories will blow you away in a good way, some will leave you cold, and others will be “just okay.”

Well, Dan Alatorre has curated a collection of tales that will keep you reading “just one more” for hours. The tales range from gory (but not too gory) to around-the-campfire spooky. Settings range from New Orleans to England and just about anyplace you can name in between.

My favorites in the collection were “The Doctor’s Walk” and “Click and Clack: An Eldritch Twins Story.” They were good, spooky fun with some unexpected twists and turns along the way.

If you are looking for a good Halloween read, this book is for you.
