"I love horror anthologies, and I can honestly say I have never read one where I enjoyed every single story. There always tends to be one or two duds, right? With "Fresh Fear", this just wasn't the case!...

...a few stories that stuck with me for days after reading, especially "So Much Pain, So Much Death", "The Door", and "Strange Tastes".

"I normally tear through these anthologies, but this one requires a little more time due to how amazing each and every story is...

,,,there is not a single story I would pass on during a second reading of this. It really is one of the best anthologies of the year."
