    Christmas! I really can't stand it, but this anthology appealed to me for the following reasons. 1. The killer cover! (For which I got to host the exclusive cover reveal on my blog, Char's Horror Corner, and it was very exciting!) 2. It was edited by Christopher Golden and I've had goo...

    Content warnings include suicide, family violence, murder, sexual harassment and kidnapping. I?ll be completely upfront with you; I only wanted this book for the Seanan McGuire story. Well, that and the cover image that reminded me of one of the guys from Mars Attacks! playing dr...

    How can you resist the title? Or the wonderful cover? It's an excellent collection of Christmas horror stories, just in time to get you in the mood for the season. Actually, the Christmas connection is a little tenuous in some of the tales, but that's okay. I particularly enjoyed the G...

    When I see the name Christopher Golden, it is almost like the angels screaming! I've loved this author for a very, very long time. In this whole anthology, I seriously disliked 3 stories, thought 2 were crap, and the rest? Duh, they were Golden. "Cheesy, stupid grin." Anything that has...

    As many who follow me know, I LOVE horror. What you may not know is that I also LOVE Christmas. Yes, I?m the one playing Christmas music right after Halloween (although, you should check out Midnight Syndicate?s CD ?Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering? for a nice mix of both). Sadly...

    A host of authors contribute to a book full of Christmas-themed horror (some tales submerge themselves within the holiday more than others). As one would expect, there's a spectrum of styles presented, ranging from tongue-in-cheek to full-stop thrillers, and all have no qualms about th...

    Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this anthology! My rating on this is 3.5 stars. The story selection was hit or miss with me, and most of them lacking real holiday horrors. I was hoping for scary Santas, demonic toys, rude reindeer, and twisted trees. Don't get me wrong, most we...

    I love reading horror. Slightly more than that I LOVE Christmas season! I was excited from the moment I heard about this anthology and over the moon when a library hold came in soon after it's release. I was not disappointed. What an all-star collection! Many of these authors I hadn't ...

    "If my selfless act could touch my heart, maybe it could touch the hearts of millions! Santa Claus is comin to town could bite my ass. I was going to write this song tonight!" Horror anthologies are usually hit and miss with a great story being far and few between but this was actua...

    I love reading horror. Slightly more than that I LOVE Christmas season! I was excited from the moment I heard about this anthology and over the moon when a library hold came in soon after it's release. I was not disappointed. What an all-star collection! Many of these authors I hadn't ...

    I received this as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. 'Tis the season! This was a fun, festive collection of short horror stories that centered around Christmas and the holiday season. This is a lot of fun for any horror lover who is just missing Halloween but a...

    Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this anthology! My rating on this is 3.5 stars. The story selection was hit or miss with me, and most of them lacking real holiday horrors. I was hoping for scary Santas, demonic toys, rude reindeer, and twisted trees. Don't get me wrong, most we...

    The rest of this anthology was 1-3, but the story "Christmas in Barcelona" made me gasp out loud. I wish this had been better. Seanan McGuire! Joshua Malerman! But unfortunately, 3 feels like a generous rating. ...

    Release Date: October 23, 2018 Genre: Horror Anthology with a Christmas Theme Actual Rating: 3.5 stars Okay. For the most part, this is a good book. It's a horror anthology centered around Christmas and features 18 short stories. Many of the stories are great. They are well ...

    As many who follow me know, I LOVE horror. What you may not know is that I also LOVE Christmas. Yes, I?m the one playing Christmas music right after Halloween (although, you should check out Midnight Syndicate?s CD ?Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering? for a nice mix of both). Sadly...

    Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this anthology! My rating on this is 3.5 stars. The story selection was hit or miss with me, and most of them lacking real holiday horrors. I was hoping for scary Santas, demonic toys, rude reindeer, and twisted trees. Don't get me wrong, most we...

    When I see the name Christopher Golden, it is almost like the angels screaming! I've loved this author for a very, very long time. In this whole anthology, I seriously disliked 3 stories, thought 2 were crap, and the rest? Duh, they were Golden. "Cheesy, stupid grin." Anything that has...

    3.0 Stars This is a fun collection of horror short stories all set around the holiday season. I was fairly happy with the variety of the stories in the collection with each author taking a unique angle on the season with stories about everything from vacations to office parties. ...

    Release Date: October 23, 2018 Genre: Horror Anthology with a Christmas Theme Actual Rating: 3.5 stars Okay. For the most part, this is a good book. It's a horror anthology centered around Christmas and features 18 short stories. Many of the stories are great. They are well ...

    ?Snow is falling and Agnes is sure she can hear it whisper through the air and land with the softest of sighs on tree branches, cars, outdoor furniture, and on the layer of flakes already deposited on the ground. She loves how it looks, loves that there is a season that can be relied...

    As many who follow me know, I LOVE horror. What you may not know is that I also LOVE Christmas. Yes, I?m the one playing Christmas music right after Halloween (although, you should check out Midnight Syndicate?s CD ?Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering? for a nice mix of both). Sadly...

    A host of authors contribute to a book full of Christmas-themed horror (some tales submerge themselves within the holiday more than others). As one would expect, there's a spectrum of styles presented, ranging from tongue-in-cheek to full-stop thrillers, and all have no qualms about th...

    Christopher Golden did an excellent job editing this collection of Christmas horror short stories. This is exactly what I was craving and it filled me with festive holiday cheer. There was only one story that I felt was mediocre, and it was still readable to the end. The rest were a...

    Review Copy 4.5 stars HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SCREAMS was not your run of the mill Xmas anthology. Rather than a mixed bag of short stories by authors most of us love, what this anthology brought was an incredible treasure trove of enjoyment that I'll be reading again and again....

    There were a few gems, most of the stories were lackluster and average. My review can be read here ---> https://wp.me/p5t5Tf-1Hd ...

    Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this anthology! My rating on this is 3.5 stars. The story selection was hit or miss with me, and most of them lacking real holiday horrors. I was hoping for scary Santas, demonic toys, rude reindeer, and twisted trees. Don't get me wrong, most we...

    The rest of this anthology was 1-3, but the story "Christmas in Barcelona" made me gasp out loud. I wish this had been better. Seanan McGuire! Joshua Malerman! But unfortunately, 3 feels like a generous rating. ...

    As with all anthologies there is a mix of meh to loved . My favorite was The Hangman's Bride followed by Good Deeds and Christmas In Barcelona . Overall a good easy read . ...

    Christmas horror in time for Halloween? Yes please! count me in! What a great way to kick off the holiday season. Not only do the herald angels scream, they bring you tidings of discomfort and fear. I love short horror stories in any season, but I savor them even more this time of year...

    "If my selfless act could touch my heart, maybe it could touch the hearts of millions! Santa Claus is comin to town could bite my ass. I was going to write this song tonight!" Horror anthologies are usually hit and miss with a great story being far and few between but this was actua...

    I love reading horror. Slightly more than that I LOVE Christmas season! I was excited from the moment I heard about this anthology and over the moon when a library hold came in soon after it's release. I was not disappointed. What an all-star collection! Many of these authors I hadn't ...

    I received this as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. 'Tis the season! This was a fun, festive collection of short horror stories that centered around Christmas and the holiday season. This is a lot of fun for any horror lover who is just missing Halloween but a...

    First off, I?d like to mention I got this ebook for free through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. And an HONEST review I will give. Probably won?t ever get books from them again, but here goes. I am not a professional reviewer and I do not have a major in English studies...

    Thanks to NetGalley ad Knopf Doubleday Publishing for an advanced copy of this book in return for an honest review. I was first attracted to the book by the colourful, gruesome cover illustration, reminiscent of the art for the 10 cent horror comics of the late 1940?s until they were...

    It is never too early to start reading Christmas books, and this Christmas/horror book of short stories is GREAT. There are the traditional short scary stories (ghosts, vengeful spirits) set on Christmas Eve but the real treat are the stories of horrible Christmas things - have you hea...

    Hark! the Herald Angels Scream was an interesting collection of holiday themed stories. There were a handful of tales that I really enjoyed, but others weren't such a hit for me. But that cover design... How awesome is the old school horror feel?! I'm obsessed with this cover. Ma...

    How can you resist the title? Or the wonderful cover? It's an excellent collection of Christmas horror stories, just in time to get you in the mood for the season. Actually, the Christmas connection is a little tenuous in some of the tales, but that's okay. I particularly enjoyed the G...
