Hark! the Herald Angels Scream by Various Authors


An anthology of 18 short stories set around Christmas time.

My favorites were:

Fresh as the new-fallen snow — Sean McGuire

Love Me — Thomas E. Sniegoski

Good Deeds — Jeff Strand

Yankee Swap — John McIlveen

Home — Tim Lebbon

Hiking Through — Michael Koryta

The Hangman’s Bride — Sarah Pinborough

I felt that many of the stories in this book weren’t

Horror at all, not even a bit creepy in some instances, and that was a big letdown as soon as I read a few and realized most of the book was that way. That being said, there were a few really good ones to make up for the not-so-good and I would still recommend because of those.

Here's the blurb:

That there is darkness at the heart of the Yuletide season should not surprise. Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is filled with scenes that are unsettling. Marley untying the bandage that holds his jaws together. The hideous children--Want and Ignorance--beneath the robe of the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. The heavy ledgers Marley drags by his chains. In the finest versions of this story, the best parts are the terrifying parts.

Bestselling author and editor Christopher Golden shares his love for Christmas horror stories with this anthology of all-new short fiction from some of the most talented and original writers of horror today.
