Howls from the Dark Ages | Review

Rating - ⭐⭐⭐

"HOWL Society Press presents Howls From the Dark Ages, a horror anthology with 18 thrilling tales of medieval macabre and a foreword by Christopher Buehlman, author of Between Two Fires."


Howls from the Dark Ages is an anthology edited by P.L. McMillan and Solomon Forse.


First and foremost, I would like to thank NetGalley and HOWL Society Press for giving me the opportunity to review this in advance. Please note that this in no way affects my opinions. Also note that what I read was an ARC, and things may be subject to change for the official release.


As always, anthologies are always a mixed bag, but I thought I would give this one a shot because I haven't read medieval horror before and thought it would be interesting to dip my toes into it with this. And, while there were some interesting short stories in this collection, as a whole it was a bit underwhelming.

Out of 18 stories, there were 6 that stood out to me. Those stories are:

  • Schizzare by Bridget D. Brave

  • The Crowing by Caleb Stephens

  • Palette by J.L. Kiefer

  • Brother Cornelius by Peter Ong Cook

  • In Every Drop by Lindsey Ragsdale

  • A Dark Quadrivium by David Worn
