Review - American Cannibal Anthology

Synopsis -

Those who do not learn from history are doomed to (rep)eat it.

A mother and daughter negotiate the Oregon Trail with grisly results; an elementary teacher watches the carnage of The Challenger explosion spill over into her own classroom. A possible prospector traveling west is drawn to an isolated inn where no one walks away hungry; a 1950s housewife shares the gruesome repertoire of behavior expected of a proper lady. Prohibition and women’s suffrage, the Civil War and the Vietnam War, the JFK assassination conspiracy and the Y2K hysteria: the annals of American history are reimagined with a side order of cannibalism by twenty of the biggest names writing horror fiction today.

Forget what you read in the textbooks.

Everything you were taught about the Land of Liberty is about to be history.

Review -

When you first pick up an anthology, you tend to look at the authors taking part. With American Cannibal, the bar was set high, as the authors contributing to the collection are, in my humble opinion, the best indie horrors in the business.

I am certainly not someone prone to bouts of hyperbole, but I have to say that this is far and away the best horror anthology I have ever read, plain and simple. There is not a weak moment in this book, not one.

I usually like to pick out a couple of favorites, but it's impossible to do with this one. Each of the stories are just that good.

If you have not read this one yet, please do yourself a favor and go grab it HERE.
