Quick review for a quick read. To be honest, I was a bit underwhelmed by this compilation of writing advice in the horror genre, because while it has many great contributors and aspects of writing to consider, it’s still very limited and for a limited audience who can get the fruit of its overarching points. Probably designed more in mind for the beginning writer who is not only looking for genre definition, but also writing definitions.

I will say that the information from all the articles given within this set is well organized, concise, and to the point for a quick pick me up. I only wish it’d been a little more detailed in some sections. Maybe the it would be more of a deep POV to take for writers beyond the beginning. It’s inspiring to be certain, and one that I found worth reading despite its flaws.

Overall score 3/5 stars
