Book Excerpt: 
. . .There is somewhat too much electricity, for my taste, in these worlds to come. One is reminded of those pictorial enamel-paint advertisements that one sees about so often now, in which all the members of an extensive household are represented as gathered together in one room, spreading enamel-paint over everything they can lay their hands upon. The old man is on a step-ladder, daubing the walls and ceiling with "cuckoo's-egg green," while the parlor-maid and the cook are on their knees, painting the floor with "sealing-wax red." The old lady is doing the picture frames in "terra cotta." The eldest daughter and her young man are making sly love in a corner over a pot of "high art yellow," with which, so soon as they have finished wasting their time, they will, it is manifest, proceed to elevate the piano. Younger brothers and sisters are busy freshening up the chairs and tables with "strawberry-jam pink" and "jubilee magenta." Every blessed thing in that room is being coat. . . Read More

I wasn't expecting the amount of what I would consider science fiction in this book, but that makes me glad. I'm not the biggest fan of horror, and while I didn't find all of the stories great, it was a solid collection.

I didn’t find this as strong as the first dark Dreams anthology, but there’s a number of stories here still worth your time. “Upstairs” by Tananarive Due is a tense and powerful closer to the anthology. Probably my favorite of the whole set.

“The Share” by Terence Taylor was an interesting bit of...more

Most of the stories were great. There were a couple i couldn't get with...it's as though the stories weren't finished. But overall worth my time

Good collection. A few of these are exceptional.


As expected with compilations, the writing was inconsistent. I loved a couple of the stories - picked up a couple of new authors I want to investigate. There were several I abandoned even though they were short stories! Yes, they really were that bad.
