Inhaltsangabe zu "Dark Screams: Volume Nine"

Kelley Armstrong, Stewart O’Nan, Taylor Grant, Jonathan Moore, Peter Straub, and Lee Thomas weave six hair-raising yarns proving that appearances can be deceiving—and deadly—in this horror anthology assembled by Brian James Freeman and Richard Chizmar.

INVITATION TO THE GAME by Kelley Armstrong
Vivienne dreams of moving up in the company, and now she’s got her chance. All the company asks in return is that she prove her absolute devotion by playing a simple, silly little game.

SUMMER OF ’77 by Stewart O’Nan
Suntanned and bleached blond, the boys and girls of summer never expect anything to interrupt their carefree days. They never see me coming until it’s too late.

THE DEAD YEARS by Taylor Grant
Emma was the great love of his life, even after she vanished. So when she reappears at a cocktail party fifteen years later, he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her from slipping away again.

THE BLACKOUT by Jonathan Moore
When a body goes missing from the morgue, Detective Nakahara is called in to investigate. Despite the storm, it should be a simple case. After all, a dead body can’t just walk out on its own . . . right?

VARIATIONS ON A THEME FROM SEINFELD by Peter Straub
At six years old, Clyde noticed that his reflection decided not to show up in the mirror. Whenever it happens, he just needs to go through the mirror and fetch him. The trick is making it back.

TORN by Lee Thomas
Luther’s Bend is the kind of place where bad things just aren’t supposed to happen, but even the sleepiest towns have secrets . . . and the full moon can bring retribution for all manners of sins.

Praise for Dark Screams: Volume Nine

    Dark Screams keeps at it

    INVITATION TO THE GAME by Kelley Armstrong
    OK for starters, I enjoyed the different, more sci-fi than horror approach to this one. ***

    SUMMER OF ’77 by Stewart O’Nan
    Very individual writing style, but didn't do much for me. **

    THE DEAD YEARS by Taylor Grant
    This one also had a touch of sci-fi. A fascinating and very frightening glimpse into a possible future. ***

    THE BLACKOUT by Jonathan Moore
    Subtle and very creepy, though not really suspenseful as it was clear from the beginning what was going on here. ****

    VARIATIONS ON A THEME FROM SEINFELD by Peter Straub
    Nice try, but I'd rather watch the Seinfeld episode. **

    TORN by Lee Thomas
    Wow! I love it when an anthology ends with its best story, meaning it was worth reading to the end and also improving my opinion of the book as a whole. *****

    As always, this anthology provided another enjoyable mix of good and great stories.

    (Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
