If you like my work, buy me a virtual cup of coffee at Ko-Fi.
You may recall that I have a short story in the anthology Shoot the Devil called “Wolf in the Wind”, which by the way, seems to be doing pretty well. It’s got 91% four and five star ratings on Amazon.
There is a sequel coming out soon which I can’t really talk about yet, but it’s the same basic theme set against a completely different background. My story was a lot of fun to write.
However where a number of other stories in the first book were more strictly in the realm of spirituality and the supernatural, mine also included elements of steampunk, if you imagine that, and set in the 1880s in Idaho City, Idaho (which is a real place that exists today).
I’m writing this because ahead of the sequel’s publication, the publisher and we ten authors, are asking for more reviews of the first book.
So far, reviews have gone from:
There is certainly a place for these kinds of stories, but I feel that place is not in a horror anthology. If if had read the Foreword first, it would not have been a surprise, seeing as it gets into far right conspiracy mongering. I guess the surprise is given that, the book is largely enjoyable.
Every story in this anthology is either 4 or 5 stars, mostly 5s. I enjoyed the stories that would fit best in the “pulp” style, such as LaPoint’s Phantom Ridge. John C Wright can always be relied on to craft a small story that has a feeling of depth and scope far beyond the single-room setting. L. Jagi Lamplighter and James Pyles are authors I’ve read in other anthologies and they do well in this one. Declan Finn, of the Saint Tommy series does exactly as well as you’d expect, since fights against demonic forces are basically his wheelhouse. Overall, I’d give this anthology 4.9 out of 5.
I don’t think you could go wrong giving this one a whirl. You can purchase the Kindle version for $2.99 or a paperback for $10.99.
We indie authors love reviews and please make them honest.
