    1. Excellent collection of stories, with some incredible writing on display If you like freaky ass goings on and ambiguous endings then this is the anthology for you I enjoyed so,so much.


    2. Originally published at Risingshadow.Conrad Williams has come up with an original idea for Dead Letters, because he has gathered a good and versatile selection of stories about undelivered, missing and returned letters This is something that has never been done before I don t recall hearing anything about similar kind of anthologies.I think that all of us or most of us have experiences about letters and packages that have disappeared into the postal limbo and have never found their way to the re [...]


    3. Anthologies are often a mixed bag of styles and themes In the case of Dead Letters, editor Conrad Williams gave his authors prompts in the way of items they needed to incorporate into their tale It gives the collection the feel of a connected set of stories in a way that many anthologies can t pull off with just a theme, namely in how distinctively random each item seems, and the texture they add to the tales in this delightful collection See at nyjournalofbooks book




    4. After a certain point a lot of the stories started to get similar due to the topic of the collection Towards the last quarter of this collection the stories just got strange The last few were really weird Overall I enjoy most of this collection.


    5. Dead letters, shorts about lost or misdirected letters as well as things lost Some stories are excellent, some never seem to come together This does, however, make for an overall interesting read It is not a quick read, nor is it a light whimsical foray into the written word.


    6. So I guess this just turned out to be a lot different than I expected It s still accurate to its description, but not what I wanted from it There were a few good stories, but most I could have done without There s a lot of stories leaning to or straight up horror, and also just a lot of really weird stuff that is probably horror but I don t know how weird it would be within that genre Anyway, yeah, turned out not to be really my thing.

    8. Anthologies are always challenging I typically find myself enjoying only a few of the collected stories, often even disliking or skipping others entirely I went into this collection with that in mind, expecting to find myself underwhelmed by at least several of the stories, but looking forward to the few I would quite like Happily, I discovered that all of the stories in this collection were enjoyable no, I didn t love all of them, but I also can t quite say I disliked any either While some stor [...]


    9. As with any anthology, the quality of the stories in Dead Letters is uneven, and there are some flubbed endings But on the whole, the all star writers who contributed to this volume do indeed deliver.Read my full review at Pop Mythology.I received a free review copy of this book from the publisher.Matt HlinakAuthor of DoG


    10. I knew I was in for a bumpy ride from the very first story, The Green Letter I just didn t get it Over to You, the second, was far better and In Memoriam, by Joanne Harris, seemed to bring things back on track very haunting, a good read And so it went ups and downs very uneven I m wondering if somehow, in the translation a very English starting point, stories with a British twinge, then read by an American reader if something got lost Perhaps Dead Letters may need another read


    11. Interesting anthology with a great premise Each author did something different with the premise, some to great effect, some which left me a bit cold That being said, all of the stories were well written, well told, but some grabbed me a lot than did others All in all, an entertaining read and one I d recommend for dipping into, especially if you have favorite authors represented in this collection.


    12. The good stories outweighs the medicore No bad stories, just a couple of rather uninteresting or underdeveloped ones But the good ones are exceptional The concept itself is thoroughly interesting and original Definitely entertaining and quite an enjoyable read Would recommend.


    13. Well curated themed anthology with invited stories from some of the great names in dark and weird fiction The first story grabbed my attention, and I enjoyed every word I ll be looking out for stories by the author.



    14. I find with horror stories a lot of the time that the true horror is that they don t finish the story they just leave it with the closet door opening, to me this is lazy writing.
