Humans Are The Problem: A Monster's Anthology is a short story collection of monster tales penned by 20 different authors and put together by editors Willow Becker and Mike Cluff. "Root Rot" by Sarah Reed puts a new twist on the myth of the tooth fairy as the ancient fae struggles to navigate modern times. "Aquarium Driver" by Philip Fracassi follows a research scientist who finds himself stuck with a ravenous alien entity inside an observational cube. "On This Side of the Veil" by Gabino Iglesias sees Sandra, a ghost hunter, burdened by the toll her job takes on her soul. In "Epic Troll" by Auston Habershaw, a monstrous troll decides to help a bullied kid instead of using him to sate his hunger.

Editors Willow Becker and Mike Cluff assemble an enthralling collection of short stories that is bound to delight fans of the horror/monster genre. Filled with suspense, gore, action, and plenty of thrills, Humans Are The Problem: A Monster's Anthology fulfills every single appetite of monster lovers. Each story provides something unique and differs in tone and style. However, all of them are bound together by the common theme that seems to reiterate the existence of monstrous tendencies in humans. Although I enjoyed them all, "Epic Troll" by Auston Bradshaw, "The Man of Seaweed And Reeds" by Corey Farrenkoff, and "Aquarium Driver" by Philip Fracassi were my personal favorites of the bunch. If you love monster tales, Humans Are The Problem is the book for you.
