A 2.5 star read
After Sundown is the first issue of a planned annual collection of horror stories edited by Mark Morris and published by Flame Tree Press. It contains 20 stories, from some of the top authors in the horror genre.
I have to start out by saying that I usually have no problem with anthologies. I know that the point of them is that all stories are unique and have nothing in common with each other. And I’m usually fine with that, but in this case it just didn’t work for me.
I did like some of the stories and I will point them out in a minute, but I felt myself skimming through a lot of the shorts and just couldn’t stay interested. My favorite story out of them all was Swanskin (Alison Littlewood), closely followed by Butterfly Island (CJ Tudor), and finally The Importance of Oral Hygiene (Robert Shearman). The rest of them just didn’t impress me very much to be honest.
