Close to Midnight – a Horror Anthology

I believe I’ve said before how much I love a good collection of short stories. This collection was superb. It opened strong with a folk horror tale that I hated to see end, it was that captivating. But I was quickly sucked into each story that followed. There was a wide variety of styles and none disappointed. Now I need to go look up the first two book in this series to read what I’ve missed.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys short story anthologies. There aren’t any extreme horror stories in the group, so it might not be for the hard core horror fans. But for those who enjoy more subtle horror adventures, this is definitely for you. Creepy, disturbing, slightly off-putting can all be used to describe these stories. I give it five out of five stars.

This book is due to be published October 18, 2022. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher, Flame Tree Press for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.
