There is a massive year long recap here by the editor, mentioning just about anyone who even contemplated doing anything horror related in a passing chat with their nana. Very comprehensive, about 80 pages of it. Also a long list of dead people related to the genre in the Necrology, so that part is worth bonus points.

I liked it

For horror fans interested in getting their adrenaline rush in short bursts! I liked this book. It had a variety of good stories, and I was able to get many of them read in a short time. Lots of interesting plot twists in many of the storylines, some right in your face "ew!" moments, a few predictable plots, but all-in-all, a satisfying read.

A fine collection

This is, as usual, a well-balanced collection showing off some excellent authors--some newer, some more familiar. I personally was quite pleased to see a reappearance of Paul MacAuley's Mr Carlyle, but there's plenty of quality stories packed into this edition.
