    Thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I've read two other Christmas Collections and I remember writing in my review that some of the stories felt the same. I did not feel like that at all with this collection.

    The Horror Collection: White Edition is a diverse collection of winter holiday horror stories ranging from dark humor to bizarre to poetry to straight-up gruesome. Let’s take a look, shall we? “Twas the Night Before Yuletide” by James Matthews Byers is a dark and shocking yuletide poem to educate you on the difference between Christmas and Yuletide and make you think twice about the holiday season. “Christmas Eve” by Mark Tufo is a devilish tale of choices and consequences. “The Advent of Father Hir The Horror Collection: White Edition is a diverse collection of winter holiday horror stories ranging from dark humor to bizarre to poetry to straight-up gruesome. Let’s take a look, shall we? “Twas the Night Before Yuletide” by James Matthews Byers is a dark and shocking yuletide poem to educate you on the difference between Christmas and Yuletide and make you think twice about the holiday season. “Christmas Eve” by Mark Tufo is a devilish tale of choices and consequences. “The Advent of Father Hirst” by Lex H Jones is a creative dark story about past things coming back to haunt the present, but absolutely not in the vein of a Scrooge story. “Santa’s Claws” by Mark Allan Gunnells is a frightful little Christmas poem that’s sure to give me nightmares. “Santa’s Gift” by Mark Allen Gunnells is straight-up Christmas horror as only Mark can deliver it. “White Oleanders” by Steven Stacy is a suspense horror thriller in the tradition of old school Stephen King, but with Steven’s distinct, impactful flair. “Santa’s Elite” by Mark Cassell wins the FU to the Author Award for this collection. It is a dark and gruesome backstory about Santa’s helpers, unique and disturbing in the Mark Cassell way. Christmas is ruined forever in my head. “A Christmas Ghost Story, 1985” by Amy Cross is actually a Christmas ghost story set in 1895. It is well executed and quite humorous, but not really horror. “The Christmas Miracle” by Chris Miller is a gut-wrenching, horrifying tale of desperation, masterfully told as one expects of this rising master of the genre. “Down the Bizarro Watering Hole” by Kevin J Kennedy is definitive bizarro horror with an old school Christmas theme. No matter how you celebrate the holiday season, there is something here to make it twisted.

    Christmas with a twist, a horror angle that will get your blood coursing through your body. Santa's Elite will help you deal with those "not so nice" relatives. Down the Bizarro Watering Hole will remind you of what might be missing from your holiday. And while you're here, check out the gorgeous cover. It's the Mona Lisa of book covers. Kevin J Kennedy always puts some pizzazz in the holidays.

From paranormal-themed-spooky to real world terror, and from eerily creepy to horrifyingly gruesome, this collection has quite the variety of tales! Each tale in this collection was wonderfully written and perfectly horrific. I just couldn’t get enough! Per usual, here are my quick reactions and rating breakdowns for each story: ‘Twas the Night Before Yuletide by James Matthew Byers – 4/5 What a way to kick off the collection! This poem was a trip with an intense ending! Christmas Eve by Mark Tufo – 5/5 Oh my gosh, I loved this one so much! Poor Devan… What a crazy tale, but so wonderful. I also loved the idea of Karma being an individual! That could certainly be another story itself! The Advent of Father Hirst by Lex H Jones – 4/5 Eek! How scary! This story really came alive! With how well this one was written, I could imagine it all happening very vividly. I actually found myself picturing the church in my hometown that I would go to for bible school. Phew, I haven’t thought of the inside of that place in ages. Santa’s Claws by Mark Allan Gunnells – 5/5 Spooky!! This takes the creep factor up a notch! Santa’s Gift by Mark Allan Gunnells – 5/5 YIKES! What a little terror Susie is. What an ending! White Oleanders by Steven Stacy – 4/5 Oooh! Take a bit of Christine by Stephen King, mix it with a bit of No Exit by Taylor Adams, then add a dash of Final Destination and you’ve got this tale! This was so terrifying and so wonderfully done! Santa’s Elite by Mark Cassell – 4/5 Woah! What an interesting and spooky idea! Using the bits of ribbon to cut down on the population is such a terrifying idea! A Christmas Story, 1985 by Amy Cross – 4/5 What an awesome ghost story!! I loved that it was centered around story telling! I wonder what the mans story would be about next year… The Christmas Miracle by Chris Miller – 5/5 Oofh. The most horrifying tales are the ones that hit you with a gut punch. So heartbreaking but so wonderfully done. Down the Bizarro Watering Hole by Kevin J Kennedy – 5/5 Woah!! This one was nuts! I loved the theme and the overall message. I hope everything worked out!! My Final Thoughts: I’m SO excited that this book was my first holiday themed read of the year. It was so much fun to read. I ended up forcing myself to put it down simply so I could drag it out a bit. I easily could have read straight through… This collection certainly set the bar high for the rest of my holiday reads this year! I cannot recommend this one highly enough to fans of horror, especially fans of holiday themed horror. Enjoy!

    Not bad. The poems were scattered throughout this short collection, and although some were clever, I wasn’t quite pining for them. I enjoyed quite a few of the short stories, though. Here were some of my favorites. CHRISTMAS EVE-A delivery driver who is forced to work on (you guessed it) Christmas Eve becomes emasculated, and in the process, has to choose between good and evil. SANTA’S GIFT-Short and sweet, but a bit contentious. Hint: Involves a shopping center, a little girl, and a gun. THE CHRI Not bad.

THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE-A man is up against the clock save his bedridden son, and has to find a matching donor to do so. Overall, another solid holiday horror collection that Mr. Kennedy has produced for readers that need some Christmas cheers and Yuletide fears!

    This year’s Christmas Review is a collection of dark but festive tales to be remembered, featuring names such as Lex H Jones, Mark Cassell and Amy Cross plus some new ones I hadn’t previously heard of, I tucked in with appetite, and oh what a feast it was. This collection tells of vengeance, rage, desperation and tradition and I loved every story. Generally speaking in an anthology I’ll like one story for each one that I don’t, but these all entertained and amused me so much that I was at the end This year’s Christmas Review is a collection of dark but festive tales to be remembered, featuring names such as Lex H Jones, Mark Cassell and Amy Cross plus some new ones I hadn’t previously heard of, I tucked in with appetite, and oh what a feast it was. This collection tells of vengeance, rage, desperation and tradition and I loved every story. Generally speaking in an anthology I’ll like one story for each one that I don’t, but these all entertained and amused me so much that I was at the end of the book before I knew it. The book starts out with a grisly poem by James Matthew Byers, which sets the tone for the journey we are about to embark on. Next in line is Christmas Eve by Mark Tufo, a fateful tale of love, betrayal and consequence. I very much enjoyed this story, it’s written beautifully and the imagery flows as the story unfolds. The character is easily relatable and the feelings and emotions he is feeling take center stage. Something I like about this is it talks about men in a situation we generally don’t talk about and I feel strongly that such things should have more of a voice. This is a great way to raise awareness whilst not being a public service announcement. Second comes The Advent Of Father Hirst by Lex H Jones, a favourite I must admit, this story is in diary format and speaks of Tradition. As the story is told we notice the Father become uneasy and more desperate in his quest to honour a promise, however, what consequence awaits if such a promise is broken? Beautifully crafted, this story is not one to be missed. The character development is on point and the imagery exemplary. Breaking us out of the flow, we have a second poem this time by Mark Allan Gunnells, a short and sour ditty sure to keep us in the festive chill. Directly after this we have Santa’s Gift by the same author, a tale of vengeance if ever there was one, this story focusses on a Mall Santa trying to make an extra buck to buy a nice gift, but not everyone is pleased to see Santa this year.. White Oleanders by Steven Stacy is up next, starting out this is your average moralistic slasher story about obnoxious young adults being themselves, but with the holiday theme and the writing style Mr Stacy employs he had me hooked. He managed to weave just enough into his characters to keep his cliché but make me want to stick around and see what was in store. You’ll never look at the Coca Cola truck in the same way again after this ride. Turning up the heat after our frosty adventure is Santa’s Elite by Mark Cassell, a more casual style to this story than what came before it I wasn’t sure exactly what I was expecting from this but in true Cassell style he brought it in. Reference to some fairly close to home stuff for many, this story manages to be respectful in it’s endeavour to entertain it’s audience. If you want a gritty festive tale of mutiny you’ve got it. Amy Cross is up next with A Christmas Ghost Story 1985, a first person narration of another Tradition, this time a social gathering which might send a chill down your spine, easily relatable as someone who would personally employ such a tradition it’s a great story to unwind with after some ghastly happenings in the previous stories. The Christmas Miracle by Chris Miller brings emotion to the forefront with a desperate father in an impossible situation. A sick child, a parent’s love and a misguided attempt to help. Once again imagery takes a spotlight in this story as we are plunged into a fly on the wall situation. And finally bringing up the rear is Down the Bizarro Watering Hole by Kevin J Kennedy, a lift in tone to end the book but Bizarro is definitely the name for the events our character is placed into. The reaction entirely human and relatable. This is a fantastic Christmas read for anybody and I’m glad I chose this for review this year. A comfortable pace on an otherwise uncomfortable subject matter, you can sit down and binge read this or you can grab a coffee and have a story each day. Every writer in this collection is talented and each deserves recognition. Usually I don’t write about every story, I would chose a few favourites but whilst I do have some that I favour more than others, this time around I couldn’t choose which ones to tell you about. Get the book and put your feet up, you won’t be sorry!

    Good reading Good short stories that are interesting and keep your attention. Had it read in no time, and I'm a slow reader. Or rather don't have much time to read.
