20th Century Ghosts

20th Century Ghosts - Joe Hill, Christopher Golden Best New Horror - Okay. I would have liked to see the story expanded and continued.
20th Century Ghost - Really good. A nice, but still creepy, "love" story for horror buffs.
Pop Art - The best short story that I have ever read. Can't go into too many details without giving away spoilers.
You Will Hear the Locust Sing - Nice story with a 1950s "giant monster" movie feel.
Abraham's Boys - Nice "continuing" tale of Van Helsing from Dracula. Good ending.
Better Than Home - Eh, sucked.
The Black Phone - Another fine, scary story. I feel like Joe Hill, at this point, already does short stories better than his dad.
In the Rundown - Okay at best.
The Cape - My third fav after Pop Art. Gave me the chills.
Last Breath - Very chilling. I would love to see this made into a tv show of some sort.
Dead-Wood - Could have saved some trees and done without this one.
The Widow's Breakfast - The daughter's were creepy. Would have liked just a story about them.
Bobby Conroy Comes Back from the Dead - Eh. One of my least favorite. Seems to just remind the reader that Joe Hill grew up being Stephen King's son.
My Father's Mask - WOW. If I hadn't already read Pop Art, then this would be my fav short story. Simply amazing.
Voluntary Committal - Nice build up of dread as the story went along, but I felt it was a little dragged out.
