There’s something right behind you… You can feel its rancid breath on your neck, smell the blood dripping from its wicked fangs, sense its anticipation as you walk further from the house, confidently telling yourself you have no reason to fear the dark, that there is nothing there. You fight the urge to turn, fight the impulse to run, fight to keep yourpace steady, but you are losing the battle. The monster is right behind you, and nothing you do can save you now. This is FULL METAL HORROR: A Monstrous Anthology, thirty five horrifying short stories from authors around the world, packed full of deadly monsters. Just remember, don’t turn around…
I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of horror you will not be disappointed
I enjoyed the variety in the author styles and voices. “Serious Moonlight” opens the books with a breathless revamp of Little Red Riding Hood. “The Dyatlov Incident” referred to one of my favorite true unsolved crimes – theories abound and this one’s intriguing. I could feel the heat in “Flames”. The suspense and writing are top notch.
“Ker, My Sweet” brings a literary bent to the monster theme, following the Ker, a monster that feeds on the victims of war, a monster fed by mankind’s bloodlust and deathly fight over resources. Frightening and well-crafted.
“Husk” offers an eerie setting with a glass house on a seashore and strange children with eyes black and bottomless.
“Gotcha” really pulled me in with the boys’ personalities and I was surprised with the turn in their predicament. There’s good humor that doesn’t water down the suspense and characters as diverse and authentic as those you read in King.
I appreciated “Finding Normal” as both a metaphor for anxiety as well as a straightforward monstrous tale. “Savage Island” wrapped up this huge anthology with a nod to pirates and zombies (the publisher is Zombie Pirate Publishing) in a story that was so much more than just a nod and better than some of the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels!
I’ve only mentioned the stories that stuck with me weeks after – there are loads of great ones in here and I highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys horror, monsters, mythology, and folk legends.
