    1. I've always enjoyed short stories and I especially enjoy horror short stories. With "The Sign in the Moonlight: And Other Stories (Digital Horror Fiction Author Collection Book 1)" by David Tallerman horror lovers get a great mix of scary tales. The mix includes ghosts that roam a hotel; An expedition onto a cold, snowy mountain where aliens want to take over the Earth; A hidden cave where a young girl gets lost while the boy who loves her attempts to save her from a life with some strange creat [...]

    2. Thiswas a hard book for me to digest, and an even harder book to review.I think a part of it is the subject matter. This draws quite heavily on the style of H.P Lovecraft and if that's not really your bag (baby) then you might struggle to truly relish in it. I've only read two short stories by Lovecraft (neither of which featured Cthulhu) so found it a bit hard to really get into this. That isn't to say that there was nothing here for me to enjoy. I really liked the story written from the perspe [...]

    3. I’ll freely admit horror, or dark fantasy, is not really my thing. Even so, if there was one thing which jumped out at me about the stories in this collection, it’s that they pastiched their inspirations a little too effectively. In fact, for much of the collection, it felt like the author had no voice of their own. Granted, it takes good craft to pastiche so effectively, and in an individual story read in, say, a magazine or anthology, it wouldn’t present a problem… but in a collection [...]

    4. This is a great collection of well-written stories. I found myself deeply moved or emotionally impacted by several. There were a couple I didn't care for as much, but that's to be expected in any collection. I don't want to give spoilers here of specific plots, but one story made me audibly gasp in horror and shock and I had to sit with that and process for a moment. Another few made me feel horrified and saddened. One made me laugh and make a semi-intelligible call, since I kept giggling, to my [...]

    5. In “The Sign in the Moonlight” David Tallerman presents us with fourteen pieces which range across a variety of genres, ghostly, fantastical and horrific. The title story is a weird tale set in the aftermath of black magician Aleister Crowley’s ill-fated 1905 attempt to climb Mount Kangchenjunga, the ‘Five Treasures of the Snows.’ Read more at terror-tree/2016/03/the-

    6. A few good stories But the rest? No thanks! I don't like reading archaic literature, even copycat type!. Stories from the late 1800's into the early 1900's are not fun reading to me. And most of the stories were either that old, or had been written in that old-fashioned manner. Wordy, flowery, boring to me but other readers may get a kick pout off them!

    7. 4 starsHuge thanks to David Tallerman, Digital Fiction Publishing Corp, Digital Horror Fiction and NetGalley for this copy in exchange for an honest review.There are some really good stories in this and I few I wasn't too sure about but the writing is perfect and the illustrations are wonderful and evocative.

    8. Some of the stories in this book were really strange, others were outstanding. This book is pretty easy to read, not too "English". The last story in the book is worth the price of admission.
