A FEAST OF FRIGHTS is “full of some super talented writers”

Barnes & Noble reviewer “dog-earred_reader” reflects on A FEAST OF FRIGHTS, which features my short story, “Clawed Sod”:

I loved this book. The editor, Jeani Rector, has really managed to pack this book full of some super talented writers that are known and unknown. In fact, I think some of the more little known writers here steal the show a bit.

There are some great stories in here by Joe R. Lansdale, Graham Masterton, Tom Piccirilli, Simon Clark, Joe McKinney and Scott Nicholson. People more new to me like Susie Moloney, Jeff Strand and Matt Leyshon also give some great stories.

The two writers though that stand out from all the others, and that I had never heard of before this are Christian A. Larsen and Shaun Meeks. Christian’s story is one of those ones that moves so naturally, that moves with a well paced speed, you are quickly drawn in and it is so worth it in the end. Shaun’s story to me, was by far the creepiest, goriest story of them all. It brought me back to the old EC Comic days if they were written by Ambrose Bierce.

The only flaw to me was the poetry. Not that it wasn’t good, I just am not a fan of it and skipped all of it (sorry to all the poets and poetry lovers). Still, I am glad I bought it and look forward to what Jeani puts out next.
