Elements of Horror: Air

Air - Anthology

Edited by P.J. Blakely-Novis


Second in a series of Horror story anthologies with stories themed on each of the four elements; Earth, Air, Fire and Water.


As with the first book in the series, the quality of the stories is very high. My favourite stories are the ones that took a dystopian angle or dealt with spirits associated with Air, Folletti and Dumbo Syndrome.


Most of the stories took a literal approach to air, dealing with breathing or airborne viruses and such. There were two serial killer stories which is not my preferred subject matter, but even those were well-written. The last one too well, I had to stop reading.


This is a series I can highly recommend to any Horror reader. I'll be starting the next one, Fire, as soon as I finish another anthology I'm reading now.
