An anthology designed to be a companion to the Dark Descent anthology, although it isn't broken up into Hartwell's 'three kinds of horror'. Also features a lot of novellas given this is a book that is moving towards 700 pages of smaller dense type, so he took the opportunity to put in longer stories that don't get reprinted much. Quite a few public domain type older works here, and for your fan of modern horror they won't be as interesting. I'd call this just about a 4.25.

These great stories...

...convinced me that horror fiction wasn't just a "slum" genre, that it was in fact home to some of the best writing ever set to paper. Elisabeth Engstrom's "When Darkness Loves Us" changed my perception of the short story. In just a few pages she makes a more profound impact on the emotions of the reader than most 500-page novels. This book is a startling demonstration of craft and fine storytelling.
