Joe Chianakas’s Nightmares Under the Moonlight

I received this book for the purpose of a fair and honest review.

Overview: We’re coming close to Hallowe’en. It’s time for the spooks and creepy-crawlies to come out to play. Let’s see what this collection of stories and poems has to offer.

Story Telling: We get an anthology from a single author with the only link being horror.

Likes: These stories aren’t too gory. Nor are most of them too demonic. Mr. Chianakas handled the scares well. Also, some of the stories have good endings associated with them.

Dislikes: There were a few stories and a poem that were too dark for me. I don’t like the bad guys having that much power.

Oh, I have a question for Jaime’s sister in “Whispers and Flames.” How can you hate scary stories, and yet, somehow, be okay with the idea of children killing each other as a form of entertainment?

Favorite Story: I guess it would be “The Destroyer.”

Conclusion: This is one to read on Hallowe’en. The only thing is this author really seems to like Steven King. And that is one author whose style I prefer to avoid.
