    " Anyone story where the author can manage to weave a Phillis Wheatley reference into a horror story, as Brandon Massey did in Granddad's Garage, is aces with me! A terrific collection of chilling tales, all of them good, many of them fantastic. I like stories that keep me thinking. "

    " Inconsistent.

    As expected with compilations, the writing was inconsistent. I loved a couple of the stories - picked up a couple of new authors I want to investigate. There were several I abandoned even though they were short stories! Yes, they really were that bad.
