I agree with another review on here Usually when I pick up an anthology I know if I m lucky I m going to REALLY enjoy a few of the stories like some of them and want to skip some as well This is true for single author collections too It s not a criticism of those stories I liked least We all have different tastes However I must say Shadowy Natures is the first anthology where I genuinely enjoyed every single one of the stories even though the subjects narrator voices and author styles were very different All are psychological horror Don t expect any monsters or splatterporn but DO be prepared for some serious CREEP and I say that in a good way Mandibular Fixation Taking Out the Garbage and Ring Rock all have gradually building tension the kind where if they were movies you d hold off going for popcorn because you just know something big is going to happen any moment Seven Days of Dog Walking Uncle In a Mother s Eyes The Wolf Gang Cuckoo and Like Abigail Winchell all made me start to uestion my spidey sense In each there is something very rotten in Denmark and it s not until at least halfway through each story that the dark truth is revealed A few of the other stories Drifter His Death Brings No Respite Itch and Lemonade truly surprised me in their uniue approaches to the genre incorporating the Old West as a setting a storyline involving a revenge plot on a man in hospice a common skin condition gone berserk and an underground collectors item of books bound in human skin respectively There are also everyday situations that uickly escalate into terror traps like in Maternal Bond just had a baby expecting one soon you ll freak out or Christmas Shopper are you a Black Friday regular you won t be after this story or Walking on Knives looking for something to spice up your marriage DON T And of course there are stories about everyday humans who simply enjoy killing andor hurting others In Control Accessory My Father s Home Heart Skull Heart and Roger just to remind us that yep my next door neighbor may in fact have bodies in his basement I cannot recommend this anthology enough and I dare any fan of psychological horror to read it and try to be disappointed It can t be done I received this book as an ARC from the publisher but frankly I would pay for it I think it s only 15 on and I ll probably buy a copy for my niece who also enjoys horror

Anthologies are like beer flights You get a little taste here a little taste there and before you know it you ve found a new author to love and you go buy all of their books Often wildly different in style and voice short stories grouped together like this are perfect for the reader who only has small snippets of time And it s hard to have each story reflect an overall theme while being uniue In this Shadowy Natures is the perfect anthology with 21 dark tales that will get in your head suirming and pulsing until you have to look away Some of these were truly disgusting body horrors I m looking at you Itch by Louis Stephenson I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit with every paragraph I read Great job making me feel the disgust of the main character at her brother s skin condition and now I have to go scratch my arm There was some fantastic writing with gorgeous imagery in Mandibular Fixation by Lee Rozelle It was pitch black and I found myself stumbling in yoga pants through an abandoned building that had this reek of burnt oil and rotten onions The stark odor of human grease unwashed clothes and thick black flies spiraled Mandibular Fixation upward in a confusion of staircases as I ran in the direction of Ally s screams Drifter by CW Blackwell was one of my favorites Even though I had an idea where the story was going I still enjoyed the trip Great characterization and scenic descriptions just enough to place you and have you feel for the character but not so much that it takes you out of the story It s hard to pack historical fiction into a short format but Blackwell knocked it out of the parkLove the characters and vivid descriptions in Taking Out the Garbage by Thomas VaughnJust flat out fantastic writing in Seven Days of Dog Walking by Scotty Milder Maternal Bond by KC Grifant struck a chord with me reminding me of my own days dealing with sleep deprivation a screaming newborn and post partum depression Grifant portrayed those feelings in such a realistic way I definitely thought it would go in a darker direction and I was glued to the page in anticipation of the ending Fantastic tension throughoutI loved the style and format of Heart Skull Heart by Bryan Miller An in depth look at the turmoil of parents on the other end of shocking headlines it examines the heart of parents dealing with one of the worse thing they could face Having to live with the fact that their child did such a heinous thing and still loving them through it would be near impossible for anyone Fantastic ending Walking on Knives Matthew R Davis Another one of my favorites this took a turn I was not expecting from the opening paragraphs and I loved it The differing perspectives are done really well especially when you read the husband s and your gut starts twisting as you think you know then you do know what s happeningMy absolute favorite of the bunch was Uncle by Elin Olausson The writingvoiceatmospherecharacters all of it was top notch It s hard to write a child s perspective in such an engaging way but Olausson killed it Uncle says that it was for the best that Mother died I didn t agree at first but I agree now She was slow and clumsy like a slug or cow or some other animal you don t have to be nice to Then that last line And then it will be just me and him on the porch and our mouths will taste like peaches This is a beautifully written storyThere is something in here for every fan of horror andor dark fiction and I enjoyed the stories immensely even the ones I didn t highlight here
