REVIEW OF NORTHERN LIGHTS:
AN ANTHOLOGY BY THE HORROR WRITERS OF MAINE

NORTHERN LIGHTS is an exceptional collection of horror, set in Maine, by Maine authors. I've always longed to live in Maine's cold reaches and snowy isolation. But as these stories represent, isolation has its problems, and so does winter, neighbors, ghosts, and birds you don't ever want to encounter. What is so exciting about this Maine horror anthology is the particular settings, which remind me of Lovecraft's Mythos in that Nature, and Nature's entitities, are above, beyond, and devoid of any concern for humanity. (In fact, the story “Agony Chamber” is amazing in its display of the nihilism of the elder gods of divergent pantheons.)

All in all, a horror aficionado can't go wrong selecting the NORTHERN FRIGHTS Anthology!
