Dark Screams: Volume Seven by Edited by Brian James Freeman and Richard Chizmar

This series always draws me in.  It is an anthology of fantasy and horror and I always find a few stories to savor even though this really isn't the genre I read regularly.  This one had some good stories, too.

Hydra and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It is being published today.  

Here is synopsis of each story included:

LIZARDMAN by Robert McCammon
The lizardman thinks he knows about all the mysterious dangers of the Florida swamps, but there are things lurking in the bayou that are older and deadlier than his wildest dreams.

Although every child dreams of visiting Hundred Acre Wood, only one has ever actually frolicked in that fabled forest—and survived.

FURTHEREST by Kaaron Warren
She’s been going to the beach since she was a child, daring the other kids to go out past the dunes where those boys died all those years ago. Now she realizes that the farther out you go, the harder it is to come back.

After the success of their latest album, Sebastián, Sofia, and Enrique head to Mexico for a shoot under the statue of Santa Muerte. But they have fans south of the border who’d kill to know where they get their inspiration.

THE EXPEDITION by Bill Schweigart
On a quest to bring glory to the Führer, Lieutenant Dietrich Drexler leads his team into the ruins of the Carpathian Mountains. But the wolf that’s stalking them is no ordinary predator.

SNOW SHADOWS by Mick Garris
A schoolteacher’s impulsive tryst with a colleague becomes a haunting lesson in tragedy and terror when he’s targeted for revenge by an unlikely, unhinged rival.

My favorites in this set of story were Lizardman and Snow Shadows.  Just creepy enough to make shiver and be glad I was home in my nice warm house.  All of them are haunting.  I really like this series and will continue to read more.
