This twenty-four story horror collection features tales written in 2003 that first appear in this book though some of the better contributions will have probably reappeared elsewhere since. The tales as in the first collection, SHIVERS, run the gamut of horror from the supernatural to the psychological to the suspense and include several of the who's who of the genre who also contributed to the 2002 edition like Douglas Clegg, Bentley Little, and Graham Masterson. No tale is bad with a few extraordinary especially the dark comedy "Fine Until You Called," by Thomas Tessier that will resonate with readers long after finishing the book. On the other hand one wonders why Kelly Laymon's "Living in the Cemetery, Dancing the Dance" was included as that is an amusing Q & A log of working at the CD magazine. Overall this is a solid enetertaining anthology that horror fans who appreciate variations in their sub-genre will want to read. Harriet Klausner
