  • Yep, that is the danger of a collection by a disparate group. It’s always been why I’ve preferred anthologies to be by the same author. At least that way I know what I’m getting into 🙂

    As for the horror aspect, it really CAN get under your skin, can’t it? I’m currently working through a Cthulhu anthology and maaaaaan, some of the stories are downright creepy! So I know what you mean when you’re talking about it here.

    • Yep. At least my expectations were super duper low with this one, considering that I recognized absolutely none of the writers or artists!

      Oh man, that sounds like a lot of fun. I look forward to trying something purely Cthulhu-related in the future. When done right, it can really be quite horrifyingly fascinating!

  • That’s the thing about a collection of stories penned by a number of individuals – you don’t know what to expect and chances are that there will be quite a bit of content you won’t enjoy all that much. It feels weird to read such a collection (a waste of money and time), and even weirder to be featured in such a collection and not be happy with the other stories in the same book.

    • That’s an interesting point, from the perspective of a writer who’s part of the collection. I do wonder what they all feel about being featured in this and if they don’t mind the differences in quality. The risks, however, are indeed so high for readers with this kind of collection. Probably best to try these from a library or something.

      • I remember reading the anthology my story was featured in and thinking: “What if people just throw this away before they get to my story?!” But then, I read reviews of those stories and reminded myself that people have different tastes and the stories I didn’t like all that much were actually really enjoyed by others (and maybe it was mine that wasn’t the strongest?!).

        Yea, that’s why I don’t normally buy such collections. Too much of a gamble.

  • It’s an interesting idea, kinda of a sampler pack. Let’s creators try their hands at something new and lets readers try something perhaps a little different. Sorry to hear it didn’t quite come together as a cohesive finished product. I don’t know if I’ve heard of TKO Studios before (could just be forgetting). Do they put out a lot of horror titles?

    • Exactly. I could only indulge it as a sampler pack too. It would be wrong to judge them based solely on these but it does give me more reasons to try some of their other work if they catch my attention here. TKO Studios is pretty new but they have released some big titles from big names in the past (for example, I read and reviewed Sarah and Sentient last year). They have indeed been delivering a lot of horror stories lately but I think some of their stuff isn’t necessarily from that genre though.
