I quite enjoyed this anthology. While some of the stories were all setup and description (zombies kill everyone horribly, humans from the future kill everyone horribly, ancient Celtic war god kills everyone horribly, etc), others managed to be truly compelling and build a world and characters I wanted to learn more about. Particular stand outs:

Little Johnny Jump-Up – Christine Morgan, Cold War Gothic – Weston Ochse, Thela Hun Gingeet- David Benton and W.D. Gagliani, and Blank White Page – James A Moore ( )

My expectations were not that high for this anthology. Although, I love horror, in all it's many forms, I've never been that big a fan of the military story. Well, I needn't have worried at all. SNAFU: An Anthology of Military Horror delivers. Every story killed (pun intended).

Sixteen tales of terror from the battlefield wherever that battlefield may be. Just about every war over the last millennium, and beyond, is covered in this collection.

SNAFU: An Anthology of Military Horror features great stories from established names like Jonathan Maberry (with a Joe Ledger novella), Weston Ochse, and James A. Moore (with a story featuring his characters Jonathan Crowley and Lucas Slate).

You'll also find some writers you may not have read before, but don't let that keep you away. Some of the best stories are from authors I wasn't familiar with.

Christine Morgan's "Little Johnny Jump-Up" is one of those stand out tales. A ghost story set on the battlefield during the Civil War.

Brian W. Taylor has a very cool story called "Covert Genesis," about a C-17 brought out of the sky by a bright blue flash, and what the survivors face is simply terrifying. "...Lawson's never been the most sociable guy to begin with. Throw in alien worms who take over people's brains and you can respect his crankiness."

"The Shrine," by David W. Amendola has German soldiers unearthing something that should be been left lone.

Between the covers of SNAFU: An Anthology of Military Horror are rescue missions, fighting giant alien spiders, Japanese vampires, undersea lovecraftian horrors, enemies from the far future, bigfoot, and the undead in the form of monkeys, tigers, elephants and thousands of Indians.

There is so much goodness in SNAFU: An Anthology of Military Horror that a sequel with four novellas of military horror will be forthcoming with more stories from Jonathan Maberry, Weston Ochse, Joseph Nassise, and James A. Moore.

SNAFU: An Anthology of Military Horror is available now in hardback, paperback, and ebook through Amazon.com from Cohesion Press.

Highly recommended. ( )
