Bad Apples 3 by various authors

Bad Apples 3: Seven Slices of Halloween Horror - Edward Lorn, Adam   Light, Gregor Xane, Jason  Parent, Evans Light, John McNee, Craig  Saunders, Mark Matthews

Bad Apples 3 is the third installment of this series, headed up by the Light brothers, Adam and Evans! Each year they seem to up their game with this Halloween entry and this year was no different.

 

The standouts to me in this volume were:

 

Belle Souffrance by the Light Brothers. A nasty little Halloween tale. Beautiful Suffering is what it means and suffering, beautiful or not, is what's going to happen.

 

Chocolate Covered Eyeballs by John McNee. What else is there to say? This was my second favorite story in this collection.

 

Body of Christ by Mark Matthews. This story was so freaking awesome, I don't even know what to say. It was disturbing and imaginative, while also poignant and sad. Bravo!!

 

Pulp by Jason Parent. Pulp was just plain HORROR fun! Over the top in every way and then BAM! Punch in the face for the ending. Those types of short fiction are often my favorites and this one is right up there. 

 

Bad Apples 3 ROCKED! What else is there to say? It's almost October! What are you waiting for?

 

Highly recommended to fans of short, highly imaginative, horror fiction!

 

*I received a free e-ARC from Mark Matthews in exchange for my honest review. This is it. Also, I know most of these authors online, and consider them my friends. My review was not affected by our friendships. *
