Sam is no ordinary child, and when he's threatened, Sam's secret will come out at last and blood will flow.

    If you like horror, you'll love this. It's a nifty collection and I found it a thoroughly enjoyable read. Great British Horror is a multi-author collection, so expect a diversity of themes, styles, and voices, but each story is a highly engaging read. Obviously, some stories will make their mark more than others, but each is a skillfully crafted, characterful journey into some very chilling places and situations. And it was all done in a good cause too -- to raise funds for the charity Centrepoint If you like horror, you'll love this. It's a nifty collection and I found it a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Who says horror writers don't have their lighter side?

Sam is no ordinary child, and when he's threatened, Sam's secret will come out at last and blood will flow. Overall a great collection! Because it's filled with both stand-alone novels and novellas I thought I would review each separately. The Thing Behind The Door by G.R. Yeates [ 2.5 stars ] While entertaining, I found this novella to be surreal and a little hard to follow. Hard to be sympathetic to the characters. Whisper by Michael Bray [ 4 stars ] While the ghostly happenings in Whisper have a slow start the creepy atmosphere is apparent right away. Throw in a knife wielding, rapey psychopath, and woods that are alive with menace and you've got yourself a spooky little book! Well written work that will have me checking out more of Michael Bray's work in the future Happy Ever After by Matt Shaw [ 4 stars ] This novella, told from both the killers point of view and that of his latest victim, is super scary. Can't wait to get the rest of the set to find out what happens! Insulation by Craig Saunders [ 4 stars ] I love strong female characters! So many women in horror are depicted as feather-brained victims. It was nice to find the heroine of this novella could save herself! Great story!! High Moor by Graeme Reynolds [ 4.5 stars ] Finally! When I got this book I had to do a happy dance. After the onslaught of friendly monsters and werewolf romance the beast got it's teeth back! This was a great book. High Moor grabbed my attention right away and I couldn't put it down, I blew through it in less than a day. Scary, rip your throat out werewolves, Gypsies, hunting the monsters under the full moon, it reminded me why I love this genre. If you want a hair raising good time grab this book! The Copycat Murders by William Meikle [ 3.5 stars ] A locked room mystery with a twist. I may have to watch my mirrors a little more carefully in the future. Duplicity by Ian Woodhead [ 4 stars ] A cross between The Descent and Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, with a twist ending you don’t see coming. Fast paced and fun! I’ll be looking for more work by Ian Woodhead in the future. Sam by Iain Rob Wright [ 4 stars ] As a long time fan I expected Sam to be a well written, fun book. While not as fun as Animal Kingdom this one still deserves a look! Especially from fans of The Exorcist or The Omen. A great collection, 4.5 stars.

    The Great British Horror can be read one book at a time over a time frame, depending on the mood you're in or you can choose to read all the stories back to back, which is what I chose to do because I was just too excited. Before I started reading stories in the horror genre, I thought that horror involved monsters only. Well, it does but I thought these monsters were the ones who chased you in the woods, in the middle of the night. So, pretty much that's why I stay out of woods, in the middle of The Great British Horror can be read one book at a time over a time frame, depending on the mood you're in or you can choose to read all the stories back to back, which is what I chose to do because I was just too excited. Before I started reading stories in the horror genre, I thought that horror involved monsters only. Well, it does but I thought these monsters were the ones who chased you in the woods, in the middle of the night. So, pretty much that's why I stay out of woods, in the middle of the night. While reading the Great British Horror, and some horror stories before, I learned these monsters come in very different forms. From the supernatural, to the religious, the human kind, and who knows what else in between. Sometimes the monsters are separate and sometimes that monster embodies all... super scary. In the Great British Horror, the authors who collaborated together to put this collection forth, did a fantastic job in choosing different stories to show the many faces of horror. There are stories in here that will touch your very soul all the while making you cringe, some that will leave you in disbelief, and some that will make you shudder. The first thing that grabbed my attention was the cover of the collection. It's got a tattered and old look to it. The cover resembles a book that you would find in a box in an old, dusty attic of an abandoned home. One where it would intrigue the person who finds it enough to crack it open and read its content. Only, it won't come with a warning saying that once you start reading, you won't be able to put it down. I can imagine that reader sitting there and starting with the first story in the collection and being afraid to look 'behind the door' in fear that something festering in the old house would reach out, grab him and not let go. Ending with the knowledge that she stumbled upon some incredibly terrifying stories that sent shivers down her spine. That's what the Great British Horror did to me. From the very first story down to the last, images were conjured up at most every turn of the page. Images that I would not have thought of on my own. Images that could very well be nightmare inducing. Not only that but there were feelings stirring inside me. Feelings of despair, sadness and anguish. Feelings of pity and humor, at the same time. How could that be? Oh the stories in the Great British Horror did that to me. It's amazing how when someone thinks of horror they think only of the scare factor. While that is still there, horror is so much more. It's about the human nature and how when someone is pushed past the point of no return, there's no telling what that person is capable of. There's no telling what that person has become vulnerable to and will do for retribution. I believe that evil exists, true and pure evil. The Great British Horror covers evil in different forms such a person falling victim to abuse as a child by the hands of other children and letting that abuse fester in his heart and mind to the point where the only way for vengeance was to allow that hate, anguish and hurt take over him. Evil hidden in what you think is a calm and serene place. Evil in the form of psychotic individuals looking for love, fame and letting their minds become sick with what they feel they deserve. Evil in the form of the unknown and confusion caused by unexplained events. Evil, oh, pure evil in the form innocence. I have to say that I truly enjoyed reading this collection. It was a welcome break from reading all the paranormal romances I was reading. Do I recommend the Great British Horror? You bet I do. If you want a good scare or something to think about, because the Great British Horror does provide food for though, I suggest you pick this up. Just read it on a stormy night, when the wind is howling, the rain is pelting on your roof top and the lights are threatening to go out. It's a nice ambiance to read the story in.

    The Great British Horror is a collection of stories from some of the greats and a few lesser known authors of British horror. Here we have a collection that shows how wide and versatile the genre is. Like all collections there will be some stories that you love, and others that may not be to your liking. But this a collection that grabs your emotions and your fears. It’s an epic read, 1700 pages! Fortunately you only have to read one story at a time (or more if you really want to).
