Review by Stephen Hunt:
Horror by Cathbad is a collection from an author whose work I’ve enjoyed before. Here, you’ll find a trio of novellas, and a bunch of short stories – some of which are super short, not even a page long.
That said, the book doesn’t skimp for length on the whole, with the stand-out stories being the novellas, Killing Dreams and Axe.
Killing Dreams is the pick of the bunch, and it starts out the collection, telling the story of a detective trying to track down the supernatural killer of a series of criminal lowlifes. It’s gruesome, it’s messy, and it’s gleefully fun. The identity of the killer – and the resolution – are nicely done too, with surprises in the outcome from Cathbad.
Axe is more straightforward, a blood-filled chopfest as an axe-wielding killer makes their way through a host of unsavory characters.
This is splatter-worthy fun for a dark night’s read.
