    2.5/5 There's not much to say about this slim volume. I initially thought this was a collection of stories by Stephen King. Once I found out the premise of this being stories that were selected by King in conjunction with a contest run by his British publisher, I was intrigued. The problem with this book is that the majority of stories were not scary. The standouts were The Unpicking by Michael Button and The Bear Trap by Neil Hudson. Both gave me shivers and I have to admit and ending of The Un [...]

    This book contains six very short, more or less creepy and weird stories, selected by Stephen King in a competition. My personal favorites were EAU-DE-ERIC by Manuela Saragosa which would have gotten 5 stars and THE UNPICKING by Michael Button, which scared the hell out of me.

    Well, this is a truly odd collection of “scary stories” selected by the king of horror, Stephen King! Apparently, King thought these stories were so good, they just had to be published…I love, love, love Stephen King. He was my introduction to horror fiction and the man could do no wrong (until now). Hell, even his average books are better than a lot of the stuff out there! Sadly, King dropped a bollock with this one. Really, this book should be renamed, “One okay story and five shit one [...]

    3.5Collection of 6 short stories selected through a writing competition and edited by Stephen King. Some are more enjoyable than others. My favourite is the first story.

    Well two stories out of six is not real good odds. These stories are a result of a contest that Stephen King's British publisher did in line with "The Bazaar of Bad Dreams" publication. We have the winning story and then five other stories that were part of the final six finalists. I really only liked two stories, "Wild Swimming" and "The Unpicking". I did think that two stories had promise, "Eau-de-Eric" and "La Mort De L'amant" and the last two stories I did not get or care for that much "Spot [...]

    This book was fun and super short. I read it quickly in a single sitting, and while none of the stories blew me away, I did enjoy it, with the standout for me being The Unpicking. None of theses stories are going to keep you awake at night, but I still had a good time reading them. And that cover art is gorgeous.

    Six Scary Stories was a great book, definitely full of suspense and weirdness, although some of the stories were more plain bizarre than scary. There's some really good ones in this anthology that horror fans will definitely enjoy.

    Oh my, Stephen, I am right mad at you about nowI was looking forward to this book, and had preordered it when I first heard of it. If these were the best of 20 that he read, then the other 14 must have been truly awful. These are the worst I have read in some time, the only one that was halfway ok was the 2nd one, "Eau de Eric" I am truly disappointed in this endeavor. A no star rating would have been better

    This book contains six pretty short stories. Some I loved and some were just "meh." They're so short they are actually rather hard to review so here's a breakdown of my thoughts and ratings on each.WILD SWIMMING: (3/5)This one is represented by the cover art and sort of gave me a "creature from the black lagoon" vibe.EAU-DE-ERIC: (4/5)A maniacal dead husband returns in the form of a stuffed teddy bear - or does he?THE SPOTS: (2/5) Counting spots on a leopard - my least favoriteE UNPICKING: (4/5) [...]

    I received a copy of this short story collection from Cemetery Dance in exchange for an honest review. I have been reading Cemetery Dance publications for years and they are a great publisher of many special editions and one of a kind books. I met some of my favorite writers through them.Stephen King introduces this horror collection. He was called upon to judge a short story contest and choose his favorite, which he did. He chose Wild Swimming and he explains why. My personal favorite is a diff [...]

    Six fun stories! A couple of them weren't creepy but they were entertaining. A few were genuinely creepy. I particularly loved "Wild Swimming" and "The Unpicking." Enjoyed this fast read!

    I may have mentioned it once or twice, but in case you missed it – I would by a limited edition bound copy of Stephen King’s grocery list if he ever decided to do something like that. Yes, that’s how much I love the man’s writing. On top of that, it’s published by Cemetery Dance Publications (which I may have also mentioned more than once). With those two things going for it, I knew it just had to be a win… until I discovered that the stories weren’t actually BY King, but chosen by [...]

    Honestly I wasn't all that impressed with this collection. There were a few I thought were quite good. One in particular was excellent. The others well it's pretty uneven as far as quality. I'm not going to see which ones I liked here and which I didn't, but if you read this go into it expecting to like some and not the others. Or maybe you'll like them all and I have bad taste. :)

    A disappointmentI purchased this book thinking I was getting a book written by Stephen King. He wrote a few words,but what I got was something written by six other authors. Nothing against anyone of them, but to pass this off as work by Stephen King was total bull$hlt. Would never have purchased this book had I known he wasn't the author. I want my money back.

    This was an okay collection of stories. I wouldn't necessarily classify them as scary per se. My favorites were The Unpicking which involves stuffed animals and The Bear Trap, both were really great.

    I love the thrill that horror stories bring. These days, its hard to find well-written horror stories. When I saw this book, I immediately picked it up. But then I saw that the short stories weren't actually written by King so I felt hesitant to continue. Well, I was pleasantly surprised by how good the shorts were. I hope these up and coming authors create more amazing stories.

  • Melissa said:
    Jun 23, 2018 - 21:34 PM

    I am totally not going to make a joke about how life these days is just one scary story after another . . . I'm usually skeptical of collections like this. I don't know if I'm picky or what, but I usually don't find the claim of ". . . in each and every one there was that icy frisson of fear . . ." to be accurate as far as my tastes go, but color me pleasantly surprised because five out of six of these are really solid and creepy and well worth the read, and two of them are so good I've continue [...]

    Stephen King's British publisher wanted to have a short story competition to accompany the publication of hisThe Bazaar of Bad Dreams and he agreed, because, hey, he likes short stories. These were the six best, including the winner of the competition and the first story in the anthology "Wild Swimming" by Elodie Harper.I did not find these to be good stories. Maybe scary short stories are incredibly hard. I've read a number of anthologies of them for NetGalley and I'm nearly always horribly dis [...]

    Good horror stories rely on ratcheting up the tension, unfortunately these stories were all too brief to build much pressure. The first story is the best of the lot, but is still far too short to work up to a good scare. It has the bones of a good yarn, but it needed to be at least twice as long. Save your money and pass on this book.

  • Khristina Chess said:
    Jun 23, 2018 - 21:34 PM

    This book falsely claimed to be by Steven King. In fact he wrote the Introduction and judged the contest that these stories were part of. I liked as couple of the stories but felt misled in the overall transaction.

    The Unpicking was the creepiest story. And my favorite.

    Not at all what I expected. The stories were alright, a few better than the others. Not much more to say except I give it three stars.

    This anthology of short stories was quite enjoyable to read. It’s my opinion that any horror lover will want to read this book. The authors found in the book are:Elodie HarperManuela SaragosaPaul Bassett DaviesMichael ButtonStuart Johnstone&Neil HudsonThe book is filled with excellent writing and stories of spirits, hauntings, creepy toys, a leopard and a hungry bear. All are unique and frightfully compelling. However, I will admit, the one I am most partial too is The Unpicking by Michael [...]

    As with his own writing, Stephen King strikes a chord here by prefacing the stories with his experience reading them. Whenever I read a book, especially if I plan on writing a review, I read everything… the Introduction, Preface, Acknowledgements, Afterwards, and sometimes even the copyright information. Why? Because I find that these extras provide incite or a connection to the writer or editor. Stephen King, in particular, with his acknowledgement to his Constant Reader, creates a personal c [...]

    Jun 23, 2018 - 21:34 PM

    the stories are pretty good, although one of them i think is super racist?but the funny thing about this book, is that stephen king was supposed to have chosen them from a giant slush pilewhen in fact, one group of editors narrowed it down to a hundred or soand the second group of editors narrowed it down to sixand steve was like, "well this one is the best but let's publish them all, they're all good"so basically his role here is beyonce's in formationi might get your song played on the radio s [...]

    Never buying these short stories againThis. was too short and not very good. If it is not by King , I am not being let to believe these authors are any good, because King's name is on the cover.
