Halloween Carnival: Vol. 3

Edited by Brian James Freeman

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This is an anthology of five stories, all centred around Halloween: The Way Lost, by Kelley Armstrong; La Calavera, by Kate Maruyama; The Devil’s Due, by Michael McBride; A Thousand Rooms of Darkness, by Taylor Grant; and, The Last Night of October, by Greg Chapman. I’ve already read and loved many books by Armstrong and McBride, while the other three authors are new to me.

The stories are solid enough, although none stood out as exceptional. The McBride and Armstrong contributions are, as far as I can tell, brand new for this collection, and both are well-written and enjoyable. The scope is fairly limited, given that the anthology is Halloween-themed, but each story is distinct. On the whole, it was an enjoyable way to while away a couple of evenings.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
