Beneath the tree, the presents lie -- a knife that vanishes, a cr che that lives, a house in London luring lonely tourists -- each one wrapped with care, each one dripping venom. Every tale is unexpected and unsettling, leaving you enveloped in a shroud of Christmas dread. --Grady Hendrix, Paperbacks from Hell Hark! The Herald Angels Scream is made of horror stories set at Christmas. The best of them have a wide range of tones: Joe R. Lansdale's elegiac The Second Floor of the Christmas Hotel concerns aging and a long-unsolved mystery; Josh Malerman's Tenets finds a disgraced cult leader awkwardly attending a holiday gathering; and Sarah Pinborough's The Hangman's Bride delves into history for a tale of a grieving husband, an orphaned child forced into a life of crime and a restless spirit roaming around a desolate home. -- Polygon I would definitely recommend this if you're looking for a creepy, chilly read for the holidays. -- Sci Fi and Scary (.com) Hark! is a fun book filled with lots of interesting ideas and weird tales. -- Dread Central (.com) I guarantee this particular Christmas stocking has some real gems lurking amongst the holly and mistletoe....Hark! The Herald Angels Scream is full of delicious and off-colour presents which are well worth unwrapping, or gifting to a horror loving friend. -- Ginger Nuts of Horror (.com) Hark! The Herald Angels Scream is a horror anthology perfectly curated by Golden to rip the wholesome holiday open and spill its blood on the freshly fallen snow. -- iHorror (.com) The best part of the Halloween to Christmas time is that we get to take this time of ghoulishness to jolly celebration and make them all into something sinister if we want....Ultimately I will say that this was one of my favorite short story collections to read. -- Where the Reader Grows (.com)
