Dark Discoveries reviews WHAT FEARS BECOME and A FEAST OF FRIGHTS

Cyrus Wraith Walker reviews two Horror Zine anthologies featuring my short fiction for Dark Discoveries Magazine. WHAT FEARS BECOME includes “Bast,” and A FEAST OF FRIGHTS offers “Clawed Sod.”

Cyrus Wraith Walker: A Feast of Frights is “an eclectic compilation of dark writings from some of the most talented authors the genre has to offer.”

What Fears Become: An Anthology from The Horror Zine was the first book in editor Jeani Rector’s new series and what Bentley Little called in his blurb, “the future of horror”. I agree. A lot of people I think are familiar with The Horror Zine, the publication that serves dark fiction online. When she released the first physical book anthology as a springboard from the site (loaded with celebrated and newer authors, poetry, and art in 2011), it was obvious THZ had evolved. And now this looks as if it may become a delightfully dark habit for Jeani, because now she is releasing a new anthology. A Feast of Frights from The Horror Zine is just out, officially the first publication under The Horror Zine imprint.

I am taken with these anthologies. The stories do not lack in quality. They have meat to serve, and I am a meat lover. What Fears Become whets our appetite with a forward by Simon Clark (“The Night of the Triffids”) – who reminds us of “the gift” of story. This is followed by Christian A. Larsen’s “Bast,” which will start you waiting for death and then wishing it would happen…
