If any collection ever deserved a 5 star review it's this one. I came across Anna Taborska on the vaultofevil proboards forum where one of her stories called Fish is free to download and read. It was, and still is my favourite story from this collection and I was pleased to find out that a second volume is in the pipeline too, or so the rumour goes anyway.

With not a single bad or even mediocre story in the entire collection, I heartily recommend this and very much look forward to the next one.

Short story collections by a single author is right there at the bottom of the list of things I usually review, but when Mortbury Press’ name was affiliated with For Those Who Dream Monsters, I put away my silly preferences and jumped at the chance to read Anna Taborska‘s tales.

Anna Taborska, the author of some fantastic short stories that will thrill, chill and give you the heebie-jeebies in more ways than you’d feel comfortable with, made sure to put together a collection of her best horror stories for our enjoyment. Her featured stories from the Black Books of Horror also made the cut, which means you’re in for an absolute treat. You see, horror is an art and it’s a challenging genre when you’ve got a limited word count to work with, especially if you’re trying to creep your readers out, show character growth and have a plausible plot. But Taborska seems to have mastered this craft and For Those Who Dream Monsters shows that she’s able to overcome those challenges with ease. It’s not only a collection of short stories, it’s a testament of what she’s able to do with her talent… and yes, Taborska has a lot of talent.

The writing is fantastic, the editing even better and with Reggie Oliver‘s old-school illustrations which lends a certain je ne sais quoi to the whole atmosphere that was captured between the pages, I can honestly say that it’s been beautifully put together. Like all of Mortbury Press’ books, Those Who Dream Monsters is a book that you can proudly display on your shelf and reread whenever you’re in the mood for something terrifying. It’s got wonderful stories – 18 tales to be exact – and it ranges from the fears you are aware you have to the monsters from the deepest pits of your psyche.

In other words, this is a definite must-have for your library…

If you love horror, get your hands on Anna Taborska’s For Those Who Dream Monsters. If you enjoy the Black Books of Horror, you need to have this book. If you’re in the mood to be scared, then what are you waiting for? Believe me, you won’t be disappointed in purchasing this book.

My only question to Taborska is… when are we getting a full horror novel?

I am not the greatest fan of short horror stories and even though the writing and imagery is very good the content and stories themselves were not to my liking. There were a few enjoyable moments and descriptions the best of which was the following....."like a moth that believes itself soaring towards the moon, only to find itself trapped in a house full of dusty light bulbs."....
