Horror Zine founder and editor, Jeani Rector has masterfully put together a collection of spine-chilling and macabre tales in her third installment of anthologies, SHRIEKS AND SHIVERS FROM THE HORROR ZINE. The bite-sized short stories showcase Rector’s flair as not just an editor, but for seeking out the best in known and up and coming talent in the horror fiction genre in her third offering from THE HORROR ZINE. And although a new publisher is on board for this anthology (Post Mortem Press) the novel still follows the same solid format as the two previous compilations.

Bentley Little (THE REVELATION) gives deserved praise for Rector and her series of anthologies in his foreword that additionally conveys his sadness that this may be the last anthology in the series, concluding that SHRIEKS AND SHIVERS could potentially attain collectors item status, featuring stories from the likes of the next Stephen Kings and Clive Barkers.

Nolan, Rena Mason, Elizabeth Massie and Joe McKinney, making this not only diverse in styles, but with the choice of anti-hero stretching from the typical zombie to utterly imaginative and unforeseen takes on the malefactor. Some examples include a ruthless tapeworm, supernatural sideshow freaks…
