Praise for Dark Tales
Each story was like a book of its own. There was such a wide variety from tale to tale, and the writing styles of the authors involved were very different. The endings of the stories were very surprising. I can honestly say that I didn't know in advance what was coming in a single one of them. It would be difficult to pick between the tales which one I liked the best because I very much enjoyed them all. Each story had its own style, flavor, and appeal. Most were frightening. One was humorous.
I totally enjoyed this book. These writers have created a new horror fan through their Dark Tales."
