Rezension zu "Holiday Horrors" von Kealan Burke, Robert Brouhard, Glen Kirsch Ray Garton
Visitation Rights (Kealan Patrick Burke)
Easily the best story in the collection. While I already knew this story from the author's 'Dead of Winter' collection, it was a pleasure to re-read it. 5 stars.
Merry Christmas Asshole (Robert Brouhard)
Simple straight bloody carnage... 3 stars.
Stocking Stuffers: A Christmas Memory (Ray Garton)
Another bloody mess, this one tells the story of a man who hates Christmas and why. My least favorite story in the collection. 2 stars
The Christmas Creep (Glen Krisch)
Creepy as hell, this one reminded me of the Stepford wives. Can you imagine living in a town where it's Christmas all year round? You better watch out, or the Christmas spirit will get you, too - and you definitely don't want that. 4 stars
Overall, a nice collection, but not one you can't live without. I can imagine re-reading the first story each coming Christmas, but then I'd rather do so with the author's own collection, which has some other great stories in it. Total: 3.5 stars rounded to 4 because of the great KPB story.
