And it happened just that way, again and again, each time I set my daily work aside and returned to the pages of ‘Night Terrors III’. Highlights? Well, there wasn’t a clinker in the lot, but a few that resonated particularly for me were the aforementioned ‘The Run’, ‘Homeless Bags’ by Dean H. Wild, ‘Tyger’ by Steve Rasnic Tem (already a huge fan of his work, I just started his latest novel, ‘Blood Kin’ –so far I’m enthralled), ‘You’re a Winner’ by Matt Moore, ‘Whispers of the Earth’ by Eric J. Guigard, ‘Kill-Box Road Trip’ by Patty Templeton, and ‘Fed’ by Jessica Lilien. But, like I said, each tale in this collection is a gem. You can’t go wrong. I’ll be visiting these pages again. Do yourself a favor. This one satisfies. This one scratches that itch.

Night Terrors III, which I received via publisher outreach after reviewing Prince of Nightmares , was one of the best anthologies I’ve read. The great definitely outweighed the mediocre, and there were only a couple stinkers in the bunch. The only thing that kept this from receiving a top rating from me was that the last few stories were unfortunately not that great, so the book felt like it ended with some of its weakest work instead of ending on a strong point. Like I’ve done with anthologies in the past, I’ve left my notes so you can see specifically what I rated/thought of each story. The Run by Aric Sundquist – 4/5 – Twisted, interesting, but not memoriable. Homeless Bags by Dean H Wild – 5/5 – with a healthy heap of “Welp, I’m never looking at my luggage the same way again, and oh please God let me never get stuck in an airport during the storm. This was a downright creepy read! Listen by Jack Ketchum – 3/5 – It definitely wasn’t what you expected, and there were two unique twists in it, but I just wasn’t fond of that particular writing style and didn’t care overmuch for the story. Man Holding Razer Blade by John McNee – 5/5 – Definitely see McNee’s style. A twisted read that wraps up fantastically. Sailor’s Rest by Jay Caselberg – 3/5- This wasn’t a bad story, persay, but it seems almost out of place with the tone and depth of the other stories. The Dead Boy by Paul Tremblay – no rating – did not read. Skipped as soon as it became apparent that it was going to in depth about a dead child. Didn’t need those triggers hit. Home Care by Kevin David Anderson – 2/5- cliche and uninteresting. Tyger by Steve Rasnic Tem – 4/5 – An angry, darker version of Calvin and Hobbes Pandoras Children by Simon McCaffrey – 5/5 – Oooh, this is interesting, and I want to read an expanded version of it! All demons and aliens and scientific racing and…boom. You’re a Winner! by Matt Moore -3/5 – I just couldn’t bring myself to care about this tale of someone going crazy(er). The Deer Chaser by Rachel Nussbaum – 5/5 – This was an excellent entry into the rumored monsters category. Truly a delight to read. The Stones of Bavdongarde by Peter Charron- 5/5 – Great classic monster fic! The Love of A Troll on a Mid-Winter’s Night by Jennifer Brozek – 4/5 – This was interesting and a bit off-beat. The ending made me pause for a minute, and then go “Ooooh. Gotcha!” Stomach “Bug”. Hahaha! Show and Tell by Taylor Grant – 4/5 – Kooky, but fun. One of the “Tales from the Crypt” style tales that falls just a tad bit short of the mark. Whispers of the Earth by Eric. J. Guignard – 4/5 – Decent story, good premise, but could have had a stronger ending. The Next in Line by Richard Farren Barber – 4/5 – For the type of story its meant to be, its pretty good. Peer tales are powerful things to an impressionable mind. White Moon Rising by Dennis Etchison – 2/5 – Not a fan. Beyond random spacing issues, it was too disjointed and just not that interesting. Of the Color Turmeric, Climbing on Fingertips by Gerry Huntman – 4/5 – Good creep, good gore. Utterly implausible, but still interesting! Kill-Box Road Trip by Patty Templeton – 5/5 Great read. Reminded me of a snarkier, darker BtVS with a twist of originality. Loved the Pandora’s Box reference. Falco Wreck by Raymon Little – 3/5 – Good story, but something about it just seemed unoriginal enough that I couldn’t be interested in it. Dreams in a Pink Light District by Kyle S. Johnson – 2/5 ….what? Maybe I entirely missed something vital, but this just seemed confusing and not-interesting. Fed by Jessica Lilien – 3/5 – Seemingly a possible tale about PPD. Not enough to this for it to be good. Felt like it was ended where it was just for the sake of ending it instead of it being a natural conclusion to the story. Overall, the editor did a good job putting this collection together, and I can honestly say I’d willingly pick up the other books in this series. I never thought I’d say that about an anthology!

    I received a free copy from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Blood Bound Books! I always start my reviews of short story collections with the disclaimer that most tend to be uneven, especially when they include many different authors. Night Terrors III does include a few tales that I didn't understand (and therefore, did not enjoy), but the big majority of the book is five-star material.

If you sent a troll to threaten me to choose my favorite or else he'd open Pandora's box, I guess I’d bring all the ills back into the world, as I just can’t do it. Of The Color Turmeric, Climbing on Fingertips was a favorite. Written by Gerry Huntman, an Australian author of speculative fiction, it will give me nightmares. Fed, by Jessica Lilien, should not be read by any woman who is planning to become a mother. Ever. The Stone of Bavdongarde by Peter Charron is set in the Second World War and accomplishes the impressive task of making the Nazis be the lesser of two evils. Even Richard Farren Barber's The Next in Line, with all the simplicity of the most basic childhood terrors, made my skin crawl. But really, I would have to list all the stories if I wanted to talk about my favorites. For horror aficionados, this is a wonderful, scary, addictive book.

    All I can say is wow! Writing short stories is not easy to do but each one of these wonderful stories are original and well thought out. I do have some favorites and one or two that I was not keen on but that is normal and due to personal preference.

The best part is that some of the authors are new to me and there is a wonderful introduction for each of them. The stories range from pure horror to supernatural to just plain weird. It is a great read for lovers of Horror Fiction.

    Not the Best, But... It's a bit more difficult to review an anthology than a novel; I always have to guard against rating it based on the last story read! This collection was fairly good. Fewer stories made me grimace than made me smile, and fewer still made me want to put the book down. There were one or two that I was quite tempted to skip, but I made it through them all. All in all, it turned out to be better than I expected, a book I could read anytime, not just read to kill time in the bathroo Not the Best, But...

    A couple good stories can't save the collection. I gave this collection two stars only because I found a couple stories mildly interesting. Most however were just not to my taste with writers who equate foul language with good writing. White Moon Rising was one I just didn't get. I read then re-read the ending numerous times and still have no idea what happened. In my opinion, this was a collection of second rate stories that were not very well thought through.

    These are pretty good original stories, smart and well written for the most part. Read these over a period of time so I can’t say which was my favorite but there were several that were really good. One of the better short story anthologies I have found.

    Some stories were awesome but there were quite a few I just didnt get. Some I wanted to know more and others I just wanted to be done with them.

    Freaky and fun. A joy to read for the horror fan, had a couple of nights watching the room waiting for something to happen as I drifted off to sleep. Nice job to all who contributed! Thank you.

    I got this as a freeby; Mister Tem is an excellent editor who is able to put together a balanced and entertaining blend of authors. I enjoyed this very much, and will no doubt recommend it to my library.
