HorrorZines Book of Ghost Stories: Review

I got a shout out in a Review!

I’m excited to share some good news with you! I got mentioned in another review!

I tend to favor deep-questioning and very unsettling horror, I found a few unexpected stand-outs (for me). Katie Robinson’s “Scratching”, which focused on the seemingly endless insomnia that can come with a haunting, really moved me at the unexpected resolution.
