THE SKELETON MELODIES at Critical Mass

A succinct review of The Skeleton Melodies by Don D’Ammassa at Critical Mass:

“There are thirteen here, a couple of them original, and all new to me. There is a strong leaning toward traditional horror, although the psychology of his characters is not neglected. Quite a few are not really fantastic, drawing on psychological trauma, murder, ingrained guilt, and other mundane dangers. My favorite is the longest in the book, “Haunt Me Still,” a satisfying ghost story. There are touches of dark humor in some of the entries. I’ve always thought that short stories were the most effective length for horror, and this collection is a good demonstration.”
