What One Wouldn't Do for...What?

Power? Safety? Love? Revenge?

Here's to the lengths one might go to for everything.

My Review:

Ok. Fine.  Horror, you win (as if there would ever be any other way).  I think I have now succumbed to the fact that I can read anthologies and short stories and be perfectly satisfied.  And have you SEEN the list of contributors to this collection? *BONKERS*

But, before you start wondering if this is really me, I'm still not sure about poetry, though if I'm going to read it, it will most definitely be horror and some of them in here are starting to make me succumb to them as well.  Damn you, I love you.  I wish I had taken the time to list the stories and make a comment about them so I could give a little taste to y'all for each one but alas, I did not. But I will tell you some of the stand outs for me - but really, they're all creepy fun of WHAT ONE WOULDN'T DO.  And I LOVE the little notes at the end of each story of author info and how they came up with each one.

The Grievous Art of Compulsion really snagged me and I LOVED it.  Baby Girl really got to me as a person who has suffered from miscarriages and infertility.  Cathartic and I thank Gachs for writing something that is usually considered "forbidden topic".  Red Rotary Phone - I remember the case where this idea sprang from so *shiver*. YES. They Don't Eat Teeth - it's like Jena knew exactly what kind of story I needed to read.   I'm just going to assume she wrote it for me. 😉  I could likely mention every single one and something I liked about each, but you'll just have to grab this collection. Oh what I wouldn't do to make you read it. 😏
