From Fangoria, America's number-one source for horror.
"A Fungus Among Us" by Steve Nubie: A mysterious fungus is causing people to act like zombies before their heads explode and spore - like snakes ooze out of their brains!
"Wolf" by Max Allan Collins: A modern-day werewolf whose appetite for beautiful young women vacationing at a lodge retreat has guests and workers panic-stricken.

"A Good Head on His Shoulders" by Max Allan Collins: In Chicago, in the early thirties, gang wars are an everyday occurrence. Mobster Louie Carboni is used to such violence. But what can the hideous decapitation murders of seven college professors, courtesy of a maniac dubbed the Mangler, have to do with the mob?
"A Heated Premonition" by Carl Amari and M.J. Elliott: Based on the famous short story "August Heat" by W.F. Harvey, it's the story of two men whose glimpses, each of the other's possible future, lead them to a strange and paralyzing standoff.

Terrific! If you like horror, you want these!

These are simply great. Fangoria has given us lean and mean horror that gives you everything you want in intensity, curious twists, and spine-tingles. The performance is first rate and the stories range from classic feels with contemporary edges to unique and fresh ideas. I would eagerly buy ten more volumes at twice the price.

Very dramatized with lots of music

The first story in the collection was terrible. The background music was so distracting that I couldn't even really understand what the story was about. However, the music became less prominent in subsequent stories. The plots of the stories were okay... A few had some decent twists... But on the whole, nothing really new, shocking, or gut-wrenching/chill-inducing. Not my #1 pick. I'm not sure if I'll be buying anymore of Fangoria's Dreadtime stories. I like darker tales.
