    One thought on “Out of Tune”

    1. What an outstanding premise-short stories based on old folk ballads. I'm happy to say that this book lived up to that premise. Edited by Jonathan Maberry, this anthology features many authors I was already familiar with, which was good, but also some new to me authors, like Seanan McGuire and Del Howison. (I mean, who the hell is this guy? He is the author of my favorite story in the collection: "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair.") That story was followed closely in my favorites list by [...]

    2. I received a copy of the audiobook in return for a honest review. I absolutely loved this book. the stories are beautifully woven from the folklore/folk songs and at the end they tell you a bit about the song. I loved the added notes at the end of the stories and plan on looking everyone of them up. the only story that I didn't love (but still liked) was sweet William's ghost and that was because of the douche bag guy, but that's ok. we aren't suppose to like him. my favorites were black is the [...]

    3. I listened to the audio version of this book, as I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.I love Jonathan Maberry's work, and this is the first anthology of his I have read. It's clear he's also a very capable editor, because the quality of the stories was uniformly high, and they hung together as a theme quite well, despite beign very different stories. All are stories based on classic folk ballads, and notes about the underlying ballad are presented at the end [...]

    4. I enjoy anthologies though they can be hit or miss at times . some really good stories and some not so good. I have to say that in this collection of 14 stories there is not one that I would call a 'miss' - there are some standouts, but overall I enjoyed all of them. There are some names here I recognized - Christopher Golden, Jack Ketchum, Jeff Strand and Simon R Green, Nancy Holder, Seanan McGuire, and some I did not, but some of my favorites were by the 'did nots' and I will look into what el [...]

    5. Out of Tune is calling.A song half-heard. The murmur of a voice singing in the dark. There it is again…a few words set to an old melody filled with mystery, heartbreak and horror.Out of Tune gathers a collection of original dark fantasy tales inspired by folk ballads. Here you’ll find stories of strange creatures and strangers humans, treachery and love, murder and monsters.Out of Tune brings together some of today’s most talented writers and sets them loose in that swirling darkness at th [...]

    6. This anthology is a collection of short stories inspired by old folk ballads. With contributing authors like Kelley Armstrong, Jack Ketchum and Nancy Holder, I was anticipating an entertaining read and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I was introduced to several new-to-me authors whose other work I am now looking forward to reading. Some of my favorites in this collection are Fish Out of Water by Keith R.A. Decandido, Tam Lane by Lisa Morton, and Driving Jenny Home by Seanan McGuire. As each stor [...]

    7. Free on audio for those willing to review it. Find your copyHERE . You'll need to unzip the files before loading them into Itunes. It looks like it'll be free only for a few more hours.

    8. This is a short story collection of horror and dark fantasy tales based on old ballads. The audio book is narrated by Peter Bishop and Lesley Ann Fogle. Each story is followed by a short commentary on the folklore associated with the ballad by Nancy Keim Comley.I found Mr. Bishop’s narration pleasant to listen to, while his voices didn’t change much from the narration. Ms. Fogle’s voice was too monotone for my tastes, though after a few minutes I was generally enthralled by the story and i [...]

    9. First of all, thanks to JournalStone for providing a free copy of the audiobook. Also thanks to the mods over at HA for setting up the giveaway.First the good. I really liked the majority of these stories, there were only two or three that didn't ring my bell. All use old folk ballads for their basis and while I knew some of the songs many were unfamiliar to me so that added to my enjoyment. Each story ended with a short description of the song and it's history.Some of my favoritesWendy Darling- [...]

    10. I preferred the male reader and thoroughly enjoyed the story with Poe as the lead and the story with the personal trainer. These stories all find their beginnings in song. Not much of a review here, because I had a very strange audiobook file that is no longer in front of me and I can't remember who the authors were for each (and I am too lazy at this point in time to go look it up). There were one or two stories I didn't care for and one I outright despised, but otherwise a solid collection. A [...]

    11. A Solid Collection of Short Horror/Fantasy(Full disclosure: I receive a free e-copy of this book for review through Library Thing's Early Reviewers program. Also, the story summaries may include spoilers, so skip them if you'd rather read the anthology with fresh eyes. Trigger warning for rape.)Confession time. I requested a review copy of Out of Tune based solely on the merits of one of its contributors: Seanan McGuire. I devoured the Newsflesh trilogy (penned under the pseudonym Mira Grant) an [...]

    12. Rating: 4.5 stars.I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers scheme, though sadly through a combination of circumstances had not the opportunity and ability to read and review it until now.There are a great many themed anthologies of short fiction sent out into the world. Some themes are broad, some narrow; some popular, some obscure; some old and some new. The stories therein can be as contrasting as their themes, naturally; I've found that in many such [...]

    13. I picked up this book for one story, "Fish Out of Water" by Keith R.A. DeCandido, because I'm already a Cassie Zukav fan. I read the story, it was wonderful, and I put the book aside, not being familiar with the other authors (and not being a fan of classic old tunes). It wasn't until later, when a friend who had read all the stories praised the book, that I figured I should go ahead and try the rest.Holy cats, am I glad I did. Just about all of the stories in this volume are excellent. One or t [...]

    14. If you have a place in your heart for old ballads and folklore, you really can’t go wrong by reading “Out of Tune,” edited by New York Times Bestseller Jonathan Maberry, and published by JournalStone.“Out of Tune” is an anthology featuring all new stories that are influenced by old ballads from not only the UK region, but also America. An additional nice feature is an explanation at the end of each story that tells the ballad of origin and singers who have performed these tunes, many o [...]

    15. 3.89 stars rounded up.I am always leery of short story collections because they tend to have a bunch of just-okay to silly stories in them, held down by one solid offering from a more established author. This collection contains a short by Seanan McGuire, one of my favorites. I won't summarize each story but I will give a list of contents, so you can see if any of your favorites are included. I hate when you are considering purchasing an anthology and can't find a listing of its contents. The th [...]

    16. I received the audiobook version of this in exchange for a review, so here is my review! This was a collection of dark fantasy short stories based on ballads. Its a very interesting mix of stories! It had everything from ghosts to John Henry, so I think there is really something for everyone in this collection of stories. Some of the stories have really fun twists to them. Some of the stories are familiar and seem like classic stories, for example “Driving Jenny Home” by Seanan McGuire is a [...]

    17. Feb-13-I finished this books and most of the stories are really great. Some were just pretty good. There weren't any stories that I'd say were bad. All of the stories are the author's take on folk songs. At the end of each story, there is a short explanation of the song the story was adapted from and the history of this song. There were some of the stories that really creeped me out. I really liked this collection and would recommend it to my friends. Jan- I won this book in the First Reads Giv [...]

    18. I received this book as a LibraryThing early reviewer in ebook edition. I must admit to being a cherry picker in most anthologies. I buy them for one or two authors and too often end up flitting through the remainder of the stories without truly enjoying many of them. Not so with this book. Like my beloved Windling/Kushner anthologies, this book has a strong thematic feel that draws on older sources and leaves you wanting to delve into the original material to inform your reading. My only compla [...]

    19. In "Out of Tune," each short story is based (some of them quite loosely) on an old ballad, and the results are a surprisingly fresh take on the traditional ghost story. The list of writers who contributed to to this volume are quite impressive, and none disappointed. Even in the best of anthologies, there are usually a couple of stories that don't make the grade, either because they don't resonant with the reader or just don't meet the standard set by the others, but there were no stories here t [...]

    20. A song half-heard. The murmur of a voice singing in the dark.I received this book from Library Thing Early Reviewers. Out of Tune is edited by Jonathan Maberry is full of dark fantasy based classic ballads. new interesting take on classic ballads. This collection has many different talented writers: Kelley Armstrong, Jack Ketchum, Simon R. Green, Seanan McGuire, Christopher Golden, David Liss, Gregory Frost, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Jeff Strand, Lisa Morton, Jeff Mariotte & Marsheila Rockwell, [...]

    21. I had read Out of Tune II before I read this one but they really don't need to be read in order to enjoy them. I liked the second book a bit better but the stories in this anthology were very good as well. I love folk songs, especially the ghostly ones. So, not only did it give me more than several hours of pleasurable reading it also gave me some new songs to add to my music so it was a win-win situation all the way around. I highly recommend both anthologies and with so many songs of murders a [...]

    22. Jonathan Maberry, the editor of Out of Tune: All New Tales of Horror and Dark Fantasy, cites Meat Loaf, Whitesnake, and Journey as contemporary balladeers. However, their ballads do not compare with the ballads of older times. I first thought of a story, Ballad of the Sad Café, then I thought of country music, music that tells a good story about lost love, hard times, the first blush of new love. The ballads from which the stories in this anthology draw are old and they speak of myths, legends, [...]

    23. I received a free copy of this book in return for a review, via the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program."It's all about faith," said Sister Joan. "So lacking in modern times. The legend of the Hollow Women is old . . . They have existed alongside civilisation under many names. Before this town was a town, there were Hollow Women preying on the men, Before there were people, there were Hollow Women. They learned to look like people, the better to prey on them. Perhaps these days they have learne [...]

    24. I was pleased to receive an Early Reviewer copy of Out of Tune from LibraryThing last year. The editor of this anthology, Jonathan Maberry, was a contributor to another JournalStone collection I enjoyed in 2014, and I was curious what he would do in the editor’s chair.Out of Tune is a solid anthology with an interesting theme. These fourteen stories take as their inspiration old British and American folk tunes that range from “John Henry” and “Tam Lin” to “The Unquiet Grave” and [...]

    25. This collection of short stories, based on English/Scottish/Irish (and one wholly American!) ballads was amazing. If you are a fan of ballads and/or dark fantasy, I think you owe it to yourself to grab this anthology. The stories are varied, and mostly take part in our modern world. I have a few favorites (but don't get me wrong--they were ALL great stories!), like John Barleycorn Must Dieby Marsheila Rockwell and Jeffrey J. Mariotte,Fish Out of Waterby Keith R. A. Decandido,Driving Jenny Homeby [...]

    26. I won this book in a giveaway. The concept behind this anthology was nicely unique: take old folk ballads and create stories around/about them. Then choose writers who can give the song a fantastical twist. Each of the stories was very well written, most having an easy style to read. Only one or two were written in a style that I personally didn't care for but that doesn't mean they were bad stories. I'm glad an explanation was given for each individual ballad as my interest in them has been sp [...]

    27. I received this audiobook version via JournalStone publisher, thank you!The book cover could be more mystical and better this one is not the one I would pick up from the book shelves and thus would miss the new favourite.This audiobook involves several stories written by many authors and each of them are one way or another related to a historical ghost/ death story/tale but with nowadays adaption. Very interesting and entertaining. Loved the way I could listen to the stories and think to the act [...]

    28. This is a series of short stories based on folk stories and ballads. Each tale shows a slightly different view than the reader might have ever considered. From the first story, about Peter Pan's Wendy on the eve of her wedding day, I was caught up in each and every story. I especially liked that there was an explanation of where the story came from, telling the story of the actual ballad being interpreted.

    29. Truly haunting, OUT OF TUNE is NOT about rock stars or jazz musicians its about the songs of old, the ballads that sailors and others sang about haunted women and other things that go bump in the night. Dark Fantasy doesn't even begin to cover this book! If you like your scary, disturbing stories short, OUT OF TUNE" is the book for you.I received this book from in exchange for a review!

    30. This collection of short stories with has a interesting twist in that they are all based on traditional ballads. I really enjoyed the variety and the dark twist on all of them. Some of my favorites were "Driving Jenny Home" and "John Barleycorn Must Die". As a person who loves Irish and Scottish folk music these stories gave me a new perspective on the music I listen too. I will be recommending book. Especially to my friends with literature and music degrees.
