adult horror


Horror Library, Vol 6 — edited by Eric J. Guignard

I originally thought I would just give a basic rundown of the entire anthology, maybe while throwing in a star rating for each individual story. By the time I reached somewhere around the halfway mark, I realized that would be incredibly unfair, as I was bored to tears by some stories, while others made me immediately look up more works by that author to add to my TBR. Hence, I'll give a short rundown of each story, as well as a star rating.

Locke & Key, Vol 1 — Joe Hill

After a terrible home invasion ends in the death of their father, the Locke family is forced to relocate to Lovecraft, Massachusetts, to live in the late Mr. Locke's childhood home with his brother. Wracked by grief (and, for some, guilt), the children hope to find solace in the new beginnings of the aptly named Key House, but things are not as they seem. Doors lead to realities seemingly impossible, opening pathways to spirit dimensions. As if things weren't strange enough already, there's a voice in the well house... crying for help.

Wytches, Vol. 1 — Scott Snyder

When Sail and her family move to a small town in New Hampshire, they think they're escaping the horrors in their little world: the accident that has forced Sail's mother into a wheelchair, the nightmare in the woods that leaves Sail waking up in a cold sweat. They have no idea that they aren't escaping at all... in fact, they might be walking right into the fire.
