All proceeds from the purchase of this ebook will be donated to Speranza Animal Rescue (US) and Carla Lane Animals in Need (UK) charities.
Sequel to the popular VS anthology for animal welfare. Who writes the best extreme horror: the US or the UK? Find out for yourself in VS: US vs UK Extreme Horror, a competition anthology featuring some of the year's best horror, judged by horror enthusiasts and you: the readers.
This book is a special piece. It consists of a competition between US and UK writers, round by round one writer becomes the winner with their short story.
You can find different kinds of subjects, from gore extreme sex to bloody revenge and dark conspiracies. Big names show up in this book, competing against each other.
Most stories focus on fury and revenge, taking the author to the limit. Others are lighter, like a dark thriller.
I enjoyed very much the rounds seven, twelve and thirteen.
The book opens with a quite light round, but if you keep on reading you get to the extreme ones. In my case, what I was looking for (so if you love extreme like I do, do not give up in the first round (great stories, just a bit lighter), it gets much more sweetly disturbing). The idea of a competition is very interesting, although for the reader the important is getting a lot of great gore stories. The book already tells you who wins (through judge's choice), so it takes you a bit away from the point of the "fight" between writers. But you don't care because the material you hold in your hands is great, and if you like extreme horror, you'll love this book. And as a reader, you can vote on their site who's the best too.
Short stories without connection between each other, make very easy the read, and great to combine with a crazy busy life like mine. Lots of terrific authors, a little taste of every depraved mind you can imagine, high and low level of gore, this book is made for a wide audience. Love it or love it. This title is sick awesome. Plus, all proceeds go to a charity cause. What else could you ask for? That said, Congrats to the authors!
