Another good collection of horror fiction, articles, book and film reviews. I have to admit to just flicking through most of the articles, but did enjoy the reviews and, of course, the fiction...

The Better Part of You by Simon Avery
Very weird ... had a great premise and I was looking forward to seeing where it was going, but felt completely let down by the cop-out of the ending. Why not make her supernatural rather than trying to give an 'is-she/isn't she' element that spoiled it for me.

Back on the Road by Melanie Fazi
I quite liked this - not really very original but a nice little take on the idea of limbo and the afterlife. Liked the touch of all the hedgehogs and cats - very clever. Would be more of a twist if wasn't in a horror anthology though - as it is, you can kind of guess what is coming. Still a good read though.

Special Needs by Peter Tennant
I probably shouldn't admit this, but I really liked this story. Slightly sick, but great to see the guy get tricked by the girl for a change.

En Saga by Nina Allan
Nope - sorry, don't get it. Split into two sections, linked by a single character and yet I had absolutely no idea what was going on or why. I get slightly annoyed when stories like this get published - although I guess there are people who will love it!

All Mouth by Paul Meloy
A hell of a lot of pointless story telling for one brief moment of horror filled climax. I actually was quite looking forward to Bridgeman meeting his comeuppance - at least it stopped is pathetic whining.

Viva Las Vegas by Ray Cluley
Actually my favourite story - a first story by this author. It's simple, doesn't try to be clever, and is full of action. OK, nothing particularly new or original either, but it's well written and so very enjoyable.
