    I am one of the writers in this anthology so, I m going to be a tad biased Just a tad Instant 5 stars Lol I m not going to touch on my own short story but on the ones that I enjoyed from other writers I am not that self indulgent Also, yes, this is a horror anthology written in English Although my story is pretty much under the categories urban fantasy and horror, a lot of the entries in this anthology are inspired from classic Malaysian monster lore and familiar horror tropes There are I am one of the writers in this anthology so, I m going to be a tad biased Just a tad Instant 5 stars Lol I m not going to touch on my own short story but on the ones that I enjoyed from other writers I am not that self indulgent Also, yes, this is a horror anthology written in English Although my story is pretty much under the categories urban fantasy and horror, a lot of the entries in this anthology are inspired from classic Malaysian monster lore and familiar horror tropes There are the usual Malay ghosts and monsters like pontianak and toyol but there are also a few that I m not personally familiar with like the spectre huntsmen in Tunku Halim s opener story The ghost stories in here have a very Malaysian flavour I also like the recurring theme of people becoming exposed to creepy otherworldly creatures thanks to their pesky older relatives dabbling in the supernatural Thanks for the inheritance, dead family members But let s go straight to my favourite stories from this anthology Right off the bat, Golda Mowe s A Visitor at Dusk is a creepy revenge story that s downright eerie It s easy to stick a ghost in a story and call it a ghost story but one that actually gives you goosebumps So, if you want something that makes your skin crawl, this is the one to read Also, I read Fixi Novo s Chronicles of KK and just had to ask what s up with Sabahans and view spoiler cannibalistic babies hide spoiler There is one too many stories I also really enjoyed Paul GnanaSelvam s story The Umbrella Exit Paul takes a common Malaysian horror trope, the Hungry Ghost Festival, and gives it a mysterious aura that s really fascinating In fact, the monster feels quite exotic and the dreamlike nature of the story easily makes this a memorable story for me I especially love the fact that the setting is on a train I think Paul is one of the local writers to watch William Tham s Heirloom is also another interesting take on a familiar Malaysian horror trope toyol That s not really a spoiler because the story itself is how its main character tries to get rid of this creature and loses everything in the process It is part horror and part thriller with a dash of political intrigue I love the way it is written as we are seamlessly pushed around from the present time to the past and back again This story could easily be a movie feature and I would watch it Another short story that I loved, that has a cinematic feel to it, is Shih Li Kow s Zirafah This short story is not your typical horror fest It sheartfelt than heart stopping I even figured out the twist before coming to the end But again, I love good writing and even if the ending dawned on me earlier, I enjoyed the journey it took to get me there A somewhat wholesome ending to a horror anthology There are quite a fewshort stories I really liked but these are my favourites from this anthology Quite a number of dead children and unexpected twists in this short story collection I won t give out too much details but if you like horror stories that are distinctly Malaysian, you will like this anthology

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I discovered some interesting stories in this collection Tok La s Gift, Hard As Nail, Heirloom Zirafah offered different types of conflicts, plot arc and perspectives The rest has stale horror vibes but are equally good as well Hard As Nail has great potential in it but the story ends abruptly with a cliffhanger I was expecting the author to elaborateon the paranormal relationships between Din and the ghost I discovered some interesting stories in this collection Tok La s Gift, Hard As Nail, Heirloom Zirafah offered different types of conflicts, plot arc and perspectives The rest has stale horror vibes but are equally good as well Hard As Nail has great potential in it but the story ends abruptly with a cliffhanger I was expecting the author to elaborateon the paranormal relationships between Din and the ghost
