I must admit, I bought this book at a thrift store for a dime. After struggling to read the very long intro by dean koontz, I put it down for a week or two after having thought the entire book would suck. I could not find anything else to read one day, so I thought, "heck, why not give it another try." I was wrong entirely about this book.
Once I started reading the three stories by F. Paul Wilson I was deeply engaged in this book. I loved all of his stories, some deeply disturbing but not gorie, others just the opposite. When I got to the second author I struggled a little. Her story seemed very boring and too many details. The sentences in the paragraphs did not relate and confused the heck out of me. Finally after reading about gardening procedures and scientific names of plants the story got better. It was a very dark story in the end. I liked it and by the time I finished it I must admit, other than the mass amount of details and choppy paragraphs it was a good story. The last author was awesome. The story was very good, and from the very first word he had my attention. The ending was not a happy one, but the story was incredible.
Overall I love this book. I love most horror anthologies because if you dont like one story, you can skip to the next. I hope to some day obtain the entire set of this series of anthologies.
