    1. What a great book filled with spooky urban tales and the best part, the book proceeds helps ANIMALS!!! Who can beat that?!


    2. I'm so excited about this upcoming anthology! My story is set in the Riders of the Apocalypse world, a long (long) time ago.


    3. VERY SUPERSTITIOUS contains an excellent lineup of authors, which is what first caught my attention. I was particularly excited to see a story by Stephanie Kuehnert, who hasn't had a fiction release since 2009's wicked good BALLADS OF SUBURBIA. Plus, it's a charity anthology! How could I resist spreading the word about a book that helps animals?I wish the theme of VERY SUPERSTITIOUS were slightly more coherent. Some of the stories involve animals, some don't. Some are mythology, some folklore, s [...]


    4. (This review can also be found on my blog The (Mis)Adventures of a Twenty-Something Year Old Girl).When this book was offered to me to review, I jumped at the chance, and while it wasn't a fantastic read, it was still good.I love the cover! It's a bit plain, but I like the whole black cat imagery going on for a book entitled Very Superstitious!I'm going to review each of the stories individually instead of altogether because it's easier, and that way each story is reviewed fairly.The Rescue by S [...]


    5. In a word: A timely collection for a good cause, with some delightful surprises, full of myths and superstitions, and a vast array of stories that will make you laugh, cry and think.One of the best things about this anthology is that proceeds from the first 5,000 copies sold will be donated to the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) International. Halloween is the perfect time to release this anthology into the world, and the fact that many of the authors use animals as core [...]


    6. My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it!!**Received the ebook as part of the tour for an honest reviewThe cover is beautiful and alludes to usual superstitions with cats, the moon, and the number 13. I think it is a very fitting cover even if the stories do not revolve around those particular superstitions.I have to say that I find it extremely honorable for the authors taking part to help such a worthy cause. I am an animal lover, and I want to cry when I see animals hurt, abused, [...]


    7. Superstitious is an anthology perfect for a Halloween read. With story's from a Chupacabra, to a twist on the story of Noah. From a ghost hitch-hiker to a Silverfoot Heretic, and this is the story I am going to focus on for this review.The Silverfoot Heretic is written by Pab Sungenis. Nick the protagonist comes from a family with a long line of being Tin men, and Nick thought he would follow that line, until he was tested and became a Monk. However with no flowers to be found, and the dry groun [...]


    8. 3.5 STARSThis is a collection of short stories that some well known indie authors got together and published fr charity (the SPCA). Authors include Mari Mancusi, Jackie Morse Kessler, and Shannon Delany, among others. There are eight stories included: "The Rescue", "Thirst", "Chupacabra", "The Road Home", "Gift of the Were-Magi", "Midhalla", "Bloody Mary", and "The Silverfoot Heretic." The stories widely varied in main theme, but all had a supernatural element.My favorite tale of the collection [...]


    9. A collection of spook-licious tales that will taunt, and in a few cases, tickle the fear bone in any reader.Throughout each story, vivid word choices paint living pictures. Well-developed settings draw the reader even deeper into each small world, while diversity breaths life and uniqueness to each. Some characters speak volumes through quick-witted and sassy dialog, while others hold their secondary positions to enhance the tales.At points, unexpected paranormal elements mix nicely with old Eng [...]


    10. I bounced around quite a bit, read the stories all out of order. I received a copy as part of a blog tour. "Thirst" was an intriguing version of the biblical flood and Noah's Ark, well done. "The Gift of the Were-Magi" was a somewhat predictable, yet heart-breaking urban fantasy version of "The Gift of the Magi". "Bloody Mary" was a nicely YA gothic romance update on the Bloody Mary story and "Midhalla" was by far the strongest story and also the most gruesome. It does not have a happy ending an [...]


    11. I can’t explain why, but I’m not a fan of anthologies. No particular reason; I’m just not. I picked up this anthology of short tales only because the proceeds for the sale of this book go towards a charity I feel strongly about.In short, all these stories are well-written and have depth. Every novella is identifiable by each author’s unique voice and writing style, telling a story based on some or other superstitious belief. My two favorites are without a doubt The Gift of the Were-Magi [...]


    12. Some of these were pretty good, some of them not so good, but overall, it was a pretty good collection of short stories.
