Publisher's Summary

Disturbing real-life horror collection

Do you love a good horror story?

Well, welcome to the dark world where death and fear are lurking around every corner, waiting to strike when you least expect it. Oh, and please keep the lights on because these stories are all true!

Here’s a harrowing array of spine-chilling stories that will make your heart race nonstop. This book is full of twists and turns, dark corners, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and devilish plots that get your blood pumping.

Horror Anthology contains 19 short stories of terrifying real tales of horror. With exceptional articulation and clarity, author Ann Gaiman spins dark but real tales that will make you sit on the edge of your seat.

Excerpt from the book:

Not only was it all done by a single person, this person also happened to be a highly educated historian. Many other academics knew of him, who mostly studied the folklore and history of the Celts along with linguistics and languages. His personal library contained numerous academic documents and a large and intriguing doll collection.

The investigators of the case found 26 corpses of young females between the ages of 10 and 25. The man was also accused of desecrating over 150 graves.

The corpses looked like real dolls and were mummified. Not only did he dress and put wigs on them, he also applied wax and makeup to their dead faces. He would then throw parties for the corpses that he referred to as his “girls.” An even more macabre touch was that he would put music boxes inside the rib cages of some of the more beloved dolls.

Don’t delay. Get your copy this Horror Anthology right away. You’ll be so happy you did!

Warning some content may be graphic and disturbing!

Good Collection of Horrific Real Life Tales

I love all things horror which includes true crime when it is bizarre and not just your basic murder mystery style TV show. Lots of weird things happening in these stories. As typical with collections like these some are well known and others are not. Each story is told quite well and sent me off to read some more about some of the more interesting cases. There definitely are some stories in here that you will want to learn more about. I could read a whole book on the Dyatlov Pass Incident. These definitely have some horrific stories that I winced a bit while listening to. I am always amazed at how deranged some people can be. I have to say I really enjoyed listening to these stories. Noticed that one of the stories is the same as I heard in another collection. I assume and hope Ann Gaiman is a pen name for a different author who I have listened to before and really enjoyed. Either way, if this is your cup of tea I would recommend Hannah J. Tidy books. Scott Dabs did a great job with the narration. As this book is more matter of fact versus actually story telling he did a great job. His narration and voice were perfect. As soon as this was over I was thinking, I need more. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher

The stories of this book will haunt you

The true stories that are told here will haunt your dreams and break your heart. The tales are twisted with depravity of human nature. You will truly not believe some of this stories but they are true. If you can handle the truth about human nature this book I highly recommend you listen on read this book. I received this audio book upon my request and it scared the hell out of me. I am leaving an honest review of my own volition.

A nice collection

At my request, I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my voluntary honest review. I particularly enjoyed this book because unlike most other horror collection writers, this author included a few cases of missing people that disappeared without a trace, also under very mysterious circumstances...The sort that would be included in a Missing 411 book. There were a few stories included that are pretty widely reported on, at least for someone who lives and breathes true crime and horror, but for the most part the stories were new to me. The author gave just the right amount of detail. Not too much, not too little. If you find yourself here, reading this, go ahead and spend the credit to get this book. I’m Im positive you’ll enjoy this collection. 👍🏼👍🏼

dark true crimes

This book is filled woth dark true crimes. I have actually heard all of the stories before, so there was nothing new. But I did enjoy the book. There were no ghost stories. Ann Bauman has done a good job of retelling these stories and Scott Dabbd does a great job narrating. I was given this copy at my request and chose to leave this review.

eh

I don't know if the stories are better than what i rated this title, because the narration was so bad. It was like he was trying to just get through it as fast as possible. Like if siri was reading to you, you know? No emphasis on any part of it, just one long, droning thing. I could barely keep track of when one story ended and another began because of it. I think in this case, just buy the book on kindle or in a bookstore or something. It's not long and you'll have a better experience.

it's alright. spookier at the end

everything felt like it was just shy of an actual scary story. near the end it's kind of spooky, but only cause it's real. it's not a drama or a reenactment, so dont expect much variety in the narrator's voice.

A good listen

I liked the writer's different approach on ghost stories. This was more of the author retelling people's first hand chilling encounters. The best way to explain it was like she went on Reddit and pulled from people's first hand experiences. Regardless it was a great book to listen too, a couple stories gave me the creeps.

True Crime and Folklore Fun

Pretty good and entertaining collection of stories selected from true crime, urban legends, and folklore definitely aiming for the creepy side of them. It's cool to have a good survey of some disparate things sharing an overall tone and the narrative does a good job of keeping the non fiction narrative and entertaining.

A semi spooky short story collection

**I recieved this audiobook for free in exchange for my own honest review** This whole short collection was alright. Some of the stories were pretty interesting, some not and for me personally, I found the last chapter to be kinda silly. Sure its absolutely terrifying what humanity is capable of on the internet, but that goes without saying. Scott Dabbs did an okay everyman narration. However I found his lack of projection or any inflection pretty easy to zone out of and miss a few sentences here and there. I would recommend this audiobook, but it's short structure and playtime works in its favor with its flaws.

Short Collection

A rather short collection of real-life horror/supernatural stories. As with most compilations, some stories were more compelling than others but this was a fun little listen. From a narrating POV, Dabbs could pause for breath a bit more. He really jumps from one story to another so quickly that sometimes it's not obvious the story has even changed and I have had to rewind.
