The Death Panel: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness Edited by Cheryl Mullenax
The Death Panel: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness features 13 stories from authors of crime, suspense, and horror. Sadistic serial killers, German war criminals, cops and zombies, the mob and monsters, detectives and were-creatures, all rolled up into one roller coaster ride of an anthology. Ultra violent, hardboiled, with an unhealthy dose of the macabre, The Death Panel is a no-holds-barred, in-your-face hard ride to hell.
"...if you’re looking for something a little different to read in your horror fiction, a book with stories that are edgy and cool as all hell, then pick up The Death Panel, and then be prepared to be blown away by some of the best genre short story fiction written in the last few years. Yes, this book is that good."
"With sharp writing and a crisp design to match, the anthology makes a strong case for 2009's best. It's only Comet Press' third release, but already, the small-press label has distinguished itself as a reliable name brand. Pick it up, if you've got the balls."
"If you are a horror fan who wants to expand your horizons, I highly recommend picking up The Death Panel."
