    An excellent collection of fine horror stories - of course there are variations in terms of quality but I can't say any are really bad and my preferences for one story over another reflect taste rather then judgements of quality so I have no difficulty in highly recommending this anthology particularly if, like me, your taste for horror find satisfaction by preference in the short story format. One quibble I would like to mention here is the extravagant praise for Harlan Ellison though the praise An excellent collection of fine horror stories - of course there are variations in terms of quality but I can't say any are really bad and my preferences for one story over another reflect taste rather then judgements of quality so I have no difficulty in highly recommending this anthology particularly if, like me, your taste for horror find satisfaction by preference in the short story format. One quibble I would like to mention here is the extravagant praise for Harlan Ellison though the praise that '...It is long past time for him to be awarded the title 20th century Lewis Carroll...' arises not from the editors but the LA Times but they don't seem to disagree. I am afraid my limited reading of Mr. Ellison's oeuvre does not lend me to regard him as a great or even a significant writer.

    Another excellent collection from Jones & Sutton, this gathers together the usual suspects but each provides a top-notch story. Stand-outs for me are the tales from Conrad Williams and Michael Marshall Smith. If you like short horror fiction, this is as good as place to delve as any!
