If you’re looking for quick reads to enjoy during a break in your day, Dark Visions offers some eerie, creepy, and unsettling short stories that are perfect for this time of year. Although I can’t review each individually, I’ll mention those I was still thinking about days after finishing.
If you’re a parent, The Storm by J.A. Allen will rip your heart out. Pictures showing people who were absent when the picture was taken is disturbing and haunting – which is why The Stranger by Allison Maruska is a freaky little tale. The Willow Tree by Robbie Cheadle is dark and twisted, but what makes it even more frightening is that it’s not entirely out of the realm of possibility. It’s easy to imagine hearing about something like this in the news.
Dark Visions offers a nice variety of stories that may have you looking over your shoulder and double-checking the locks on your doors.
I received an ARC from one of the authors.
