Most of these stories hit you hard and fast with the gore, which goes great with the gaming theme. There are a lot of authors here, so you should find something to like. While any collection is usually a “mixed bag,” I found them all to be good, if not great.

Up, Down, Left, Right, A + Start:

This collection has fifteen stories, so we’d be here all day if I talked about them all and in detail but to do a few quick,

Centralia – Creepy location makes the story, and anyone who plays a mobile game isn’t a real gamer and has it coming (kidding!)

Dr. Coagulant’s Splatter Lab – Fun, action-heavy story. Chain-Saw is awesome. If you played Splatterhouse, you know this captures it well.

I’m A Good Person, I Mean Well, and I Deserve Better-Sure you have your gore, character insights, and imaginative video game monsters come to life, but mostly you’ll laugh at the bathroom bits.

Reset – This one gets a mention for some of the most wonderfully described gore/violence I’ve read. A really dark and well-done story.

So, if you’re a gamer or horror fan, this will be an excellent time for you. Lots of variety, exciting scenarios, and a cool cover.

**** Four out of Five Stars (Good)
