For The Horror Fan That Requires A Literary Challenge!

This is 'high- end' horror at it's best. Grab your dictionary and all other useful reading tools because your gonna need them. Complex, but effective. Never boring, but patience is recommended. This is horror without the quick endings and dumb- dumb plots. It's like a great glass of wine... savor every moment and second... then, ponder the experience.

a good start...

I loved the Clive Barker (Haekel's Tale) and Simon Owens (This Hand, Waving)stories. The Joe Hill story (The Cape) was really good too. I kept waiting for something MORE from the Barbara Rhoden story and several of the others were, shall we say 'understated'. No major complaints about this book, but what happened to the series? 2007 and 2008 never came out as far as I know. The "Mammoth" series contains far too much British horror for my taste, so this book is a good alternative that never quite hit its stride.
