It makes an excellent starting point for the readers less familiar with the horror genre. Stephen Jones is an excellent editor and this anthology gathers some of the best short stories of the genre published on Post a Comment. The artwork of Vincent Chong makes this edition look great not that I need another reason for purchasing this collection , with an atmospheric, disturbing and haunting image, as Vincent used us with in the past.

So much for quantitative evaluations. As for the quality of the included material, this is generally quite good and occasionally excellent. In a fair amount of cases I do share Jones's choices from books I've read and reviewed while, predictably, in other instances, I don't feel that a particular story deserved to be pinpointed as the best from a certain collection. That's the rule of the game.
Let us know - we're continually adding new authors and characters daily. The stories are distinct and fun for all to look into. These include people who know the many ins and outs of their fields and enjoy talking about some of the most appealing things in those groups that especially stand out. I managed to read 56 books this year, basically one a week. As ever, this acclaimed anthology also offers the most comprehensive annual overview of horror around the world in all its incarnations; a comprehensive necrology of famous names; and a list of indispensable contact addresses for the dedicated horror fan and writer alike.
Among the various tales I'd like to mention, there is a very dark and enticing posthumous collaboration of Reggie Oliver with M. Veterans Ramsey Campbell "Respects" and Brian Lumley "The Nonesuch" contribute stories where the reality of everyday's life conceals more than what meets the eye while newcomers Rosalie Parker "The Garden" and Simon Kurt Unsworth "Mami Wata" manage to disquiet in a subtle, unassuming way.
In Barbara Roden's amazing "Out and Back" the ordinary report of a visit to an abandoned amusement park comes to a truly horrific ending while Stephen Volk's insightful "After the Ape" depicts the fate of the blonde girl actress after King Kong's death. The variety and the quality of the included fiction certainly makes the book well worth reading.
