Fantastic Tales of Terror: History’s Darkest Secrets is having a hell of a release day!
It’s currently at #4 in it’s new release genre slot and #18 and #19 in the main genres, but who cares about numbers, right? That’s just boring math.
What warms me are the 10 amazing reviews that have already been posted!
Here are just a few:
“Fantastic Tales of Terror: History’s Darkest Secrets, edited by Eugene Johnson is an anthology of horror stories that will keep you entertained for hours. You won’t forget the ride this collection of artists will have you on. “The possibilities to the whys of history found in horror realities will have you wondering truth? or fiction?
This is an uniquely written work of art that deserves a standing ovation. Get your blanket, wine and popcorn; prepare yourself to have a very unique and adventurous experience. Don’t forget to exhale!”-Linda Diane Wattley
“I must say I’ve never read an anthology that out such a twist on historical figures. It gave it all such a different view of things. This book is a keeper to be reread time after time. Highly recommended.”-Debra Smith
“A chilling anthology of alternate histories, some horror, some fantasy, all of them intriguing. Standout stories include Lisa Morton’s “The Secret Engravings,” which explores the relationship between Death and Hans Holbein; “The Tell-Tale Mind” by Kevin J. Anderson, in which Edgar Allan Poe supernaturally “knows” things (and uses that gift/curse to unmask a killer); Tim Waggoner’s “The Deep Delight of Blood,” which presents a very different view of Bela Lugosi; Christopher Golden’s Houdini story, “On a Train Bound for Home” – and my favorite story in the collection, “The Great Stone Face vs. the Gargoyles,” Jeff Strand’s account of Buster Keaton battling gargoyles that have come to life. Most of the stories are new to this anthology, but it also includes a reprint of Joe Lansdale’s classic story “Bubba Ho-Tep” (which has an opening paragraph that is not for the squeamish!).”-Darrell Grizzel
