Thank you so much to Flame Tree Press and Random Things Tours for sending me a copy of After Sundown, and for having me on the blog tour! Here is my review…
This new anthology contains 20 original horror stories,16 of which have been commissioned from some of the top names in the genre, and 4 of which have been selected from the 100s of stories sent to Flame Tree during a 2-week open submissions window. It is the first of what will hopefully become an annual, non-themed horror anthology of entirely original stories, showcasing the very best short fiction that the genre has to offer.
FLAME TREE PRESS is the new fiction imprint of Flame Tree Publishing. Launched in 2018 the list brings together brilliant new authors and the more established; the award winners, and exciting, original voices.

This book is perfect for this time of year! There are so many wonderful spooky stories in this anthology, and they each bring something completely different and unique. I particularly enjoyed the short stories by C.J. Tudor and Laura Purcell, as I love these authors anyway! I would highly recommend After Sundown, particularly at for the Halloween season, as some of the stories are truly dark and chilling, and it’s so easy to read and come back to. Really recommended!
