    This one almost got the fifth star but there were a few stories that just didn't quite do it for me. This one almost got the fifth star but there were a few stories that just didn't quite do it for me.

    "Cult Classics For The Modern Cult" is an excellent and varied anthology that showcases a big spectrum of creative ideas and talent. From aliens to characters out of Jane Austen and Agatha Christie, the selection stops at nothing, not even violence and adult content. Hilarious, odd and definitely the bizarre stuff that modern cult classics are made of, this is a most amusing and entertaining book that comes highly recommended. Absolutely loved it.

    I enjoyed most of this book. It was strange since I'm not used to short stories, but wanted to try something new! It was good. I enjoyed most of this book. It was strange since I'm not used to short stories, but wanted to try something new! It was good.

    A great ride for any day! This anthology is solid from start to finish. The stories are varied in ideas with a central theme of monsters. Each story drags you in quickly and play out keeping me interested. I especially loved the final story and the beautiful noir style.

    In a perfect world, I would rate the book 1.5 stars. Some stories were better than others, but none of them achieved more reaction from me than "meh." More than one star because I did, after all, finish the book. In a perfect world, I would rate the book 1.5 stars.

    Wasn't for me really. Interesting concept but I didn't really recognise any of the supposed cult classics unless these were supposed to be new potential cult classics. Wasn't for me really.

    Great reads Some compare these stories to B movies. I enjoyed them all and think they are in the Twilight TV show genre. Unusual stories, unexpected endings.

    When I first saw this collection of short stories, I thought it could be really fun. I am a fan of b-grade (or worse) movies, so I figured stories written like them would be something I would enjoy as well. But I started having doubts as I was reading the introduction. In it, the editor says the book came about because of the popularity of Fifty Shades of Gray, a book that I have gladly avoided. He called it cryptoerotica. He warned that there would be sex, violence, and language. I said okay an When I first saw this collection of short stories, I thought it could be really fun. I am a fan of b-grade (or worse) movies, so I figured stories written like them would be something I would enjoy as well. But I started having doubts as I was reading the introduction. In it, the editor says the book came about because of the popularity of Fifty Shades of Gray, a book that I have gladly avoided. He called it cryptoerotica. He warned that there would be sex, violence, and language. I said okay and proceeded with caution. Some of the stories did live up to the b-grade movies. They reminded me of some of the cheesy movies made by SYFY. One even reminded me of an early Doctor Who episode (if it had been written by Monty Python, or at least a cousin to them). Another read like a Sam Spade novel written by H.P. Lovecraft. Those parts were the good stuff. The problem was that there was a lot of bad stuff to offset the good. Several stories had problems with details. For example, one character goes down steps when entering a building and then down steps again to leave the same building. Some stories could have used more explanations of why stuff was happening or at least a clearer way of presenting it. I know I was warned about the language and all but I still feel the need to address it. Oftentimes, the language and general crudeness seemed to be added solely to be crude. It read like little kids swearing just to prove how grownup they were. Most of the stories ended up sounding more like fan fiction stories than stories written by professional writers. I know they were going for a b-grade movie feel, but they still could have made it sound professional. There are good points to this collection, just not as many as the bad points though. I got the collection as a free download and that is what it is worth. You can give it a try, but don't pay anything for it or expect a lot from it.
