    One thought on “O Little Town of Deathlehem: An Anthology of Holiday Horrors for Charity”

    1. I'm pleased to relate how happily I was impressed by this anthology. I'll confess that I approached it with trepidation; of the twenty-four stories in the volume, I only recognized the authors of three of them. Normally, the failure to include familiar names is a good indication that the anthology I'm about to read is going to be a grueling testament to my stamina. Most often, the stories are lousy, with the occasional gem if I'm lucky.This is not the case with LITTLE TOWN OF DEATHLEHEM. The wor [...]

    2. This is a wonderfully twisted collection of Christmas stories! In these pages you will find Krampus (as you would expect in such a collection) but also a nightmare future where there are no Christmas trees and people decorate zombies; Santa's encounter with a werewolf; evil Christmas tree ornaments and a whole slew of horrors. Great holiday reading!

    3. Deathlehem, the town that Santa avoids and Krampus brings the Christmas cheer. And knowing that, you have an idea what is in store for you with this collection. Before you read further, know that I don't rate this five stars because I am one of the editors -- I rate it five stars because I think the authors did a damned fine job making one of the happiest holidays one of the scariest.Catherine Grant opens this collection with "One of his Own," and she shows that even Krampus has a softer side.Ra [...]

    4. If you're wondering what to get the horror fan in your family this holiday season, look no further than Grinning Skull Press's O Little Town of Deathlehem, a robust collection of holiday horror stories. Edited by Michael J. Evans and Harrison Graves, this anthology is sure to please the most twisted of souls.Starting off strong, the anthology opens with "One of His Own" by Catherine Grant, a Krampus tale that offers an almost tenderhearted look at the Christmas demon. Almost. It's followed by "C [...]

    5. O Little Town of DeathlehemLast year I read a quick little anthology from Cemetery Dance Publications called Holiday Horrors. It intrigued me; mixing now of the most beloved holidays with my favorite genre - horror.This year I was curious to see if there were any more twisted individuals who wrote those kinds of stories. After reaching out to some people in the Horror Writer’s Association, I was told to check out this anthology. I’m glad I did.I’ve said it many times before, writing a revi [...]

    6. Review: O LITTLE TOWN OF DEATHLEHEM: An Anthology of Holiday Horrors for Charity (Anthology, Grinning Skull Press), edited by Michael J. Evans and Harrison GravesEvery publication I've read from Grinning Skull Press, whether novels, novellas, or anthologies, has been delightful: both satisfying and scary, thought-provoking and memorable."One of His Own" by Catherine Grant: I have to call Krampus, the half-demon, half-elf bugaboo of Christmas, the hero in this special tale. Reading of the horrors [...]

    7. It's always hard to comment a book my own story appears in, because of course it's great! And you need to buy 23 copies! For everyone you know!This is a great collection of Christmas-themed stories, many of which twist the Yuletide into something a little darker, some of which simply use Christmas as their background. Some of my favourites included Christmas Wine by Matt Cowan, Shop Til You Drop by Michael McCarty and Matt McLoghlin, Lots of Love Uncle Billy by Adam Millard, and Christmas in the [...]

    8. There's a high level of quality running through-out the stories in Grinning Skull Press' horror anthology, O Little Town of Deathlehem, a very unusual happenstance in my reading experience. The stories are all well-written, some scary, some darkly amusing, all of them cohering into a perfect fireplace-reading, hair-raising, horrifically holiday experience. Naturally, as in all anthologies, I had favorites. But with the standard of prose so high throughout the book, it'd be unfair of me to play f [...]
