Inhaltsangabe zu „Dark Screams“ von J. Kenner

Mick Garris, J. Kenner, Kealan Patrick Burke, Del James, and Bentley Little pry open a sarcophagus of horror and dread in Dark Screams: Volume Five, from Brian James Freeman and Richard Chizmar of the esteemed Cemetery Dance Publications.   EVERYTHING YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED by Mick Garris It was supposed to be the night of his life: a celebration of his one hit slasher flick. But the price of admission is higher than this has-been filmmaker ever could have imagined.   THE ONE AND ONLY by J. Kenner When he was seven, Will Underwood’s nanny told him she had the Sight. Years later, a broken heart sends him to New Orleans . . . but it’s fate that leads him to Madame Darkling’s Voodoo Emporium.    THE LAND OF SUNSHINE by Kealan Patrick Burke Although she was mute long before the affair that nearly wrecked their marriage, her silence has tortured her husband ever since. Now he will seek out what he has lost—or be driven mad by remorse.   MECHANICAL GRATITUDE by Del James Arnold loves his ’68 Camaro almost as much as he loves his wife, and he’s willing to do anything to protect them both—especially after hearing strange noises coming from his garage.   THE PLAYHOUSE by Bentley Little A real-estate agent is drawn into a children’s playhouse behind an abandoned property she’s trying to sell—and finds herself strangely reluctant to leave. Praise for the Dark Screams series   “A wicked treat [featuring] some of the genre’s best . . . Dark Screams: Volume One is a strong start to what looks to be an outstanding series.”—Hellnotes   “The editors have set themselves a high bar to meet in future volumes. . . . It’s going to be a solid series.”—Adventures Fantastic   “Dark Screams: Volume Two [is] a worthwhile read and a great entry to this series. If this upward trend in quality continues, we are sure to see amazing things in the volumes to come.”—LitReactor   “Five fun-to-read stories by top-notch horror scribes. How can you lose? The answer: you can’t.”—Atomic Fangirl

    Everything You’ve Always Wanted (Mick Garris) The first half was very entertaining, but then it started getting downhill. At the end it was neither fish nor flesh - too absurd to be either earnest or humorous. Definitely not my cup of tea. 2 stars. The Land of Sunshine (Kealan Patrick Burke) Dark and very dense - not just each sentence, but each word carried a world full of meaning. The shortest story of the collection in physical length, but like a fan it unfolds to reveal a large canvas full of images and impressions. 3 stars. Mechanical Gratitude (Del James) Simple and straight - perfect short story with a nice twist at the end. 4 stars. The One and Only (J. Kenner) From the beginning, this one oozed gothic ghost story atmosphere. Well done. 3 stars. The Playhouse (Bentley Little) This story tells how something strange and otherworldly can hide between the facade of something completely innocent looking. Expertly and seemingly effortlessly written - my favorite story in this collection, and I'm glad it was last in row. 5 stars. Not as a good as the last DS collection, but still a worthwhile collection. (I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
