Mister October, Volume II - An Anthology in Memory of Rick Hautala 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

I don't normally read much of the horror genre, of which Mr Hautala was a prolific representative. And, I must honestly say, I had never heard of him, despite his Finnish surname. Nonetheless that did not deter me of reading this book.  The introduction by Christopher Golden does justice to his surname, as it is one of the most beautiful ones I have read in recent times. It also explained the idea and spontaneity behind the anthology. The anthology itself spans two books and Many a writer in the same and other genres has provided short stories for it and the result is a marvelous piece of work that will convert even the most reserved reader into wanting more scary suspense and wonderful tales. Both volumes have 23 stories each and reviewing all of them separately would be a daunting task, each have their own story to tell, and it doesn't matter what type of horror the reader may fancy, it will be found here.

This is a collection of short stories by various authors compiled in honor of the late Rick Hautala. There are tales of family, friendship, magic, horror, and more. Volume 2 has fewer errors and typos than Volume 1. Furthermore, I personally found the stories a bit more developed and entertaining than Volume 1, but as I say below, it's a matter of preference. As with any compilation, whether by the same author or various authors, there will be some stories with greater emotional effect than others. A couple of the stories were truly enchanting also. I am not going to list titles or authors as I feel each reader should make up their own mind. Overall, an fascinating read.
