A lot of contemporary literary heavyweights contributed to this anthology, but like any short-story collection there are both highs and lows. Ultimately, there's definitely more hits than misses, and most of the big names - King, Gaiman, Oates, Blatty - all make fine contributions. There's a few works that are a little too fantasy without enough shock, but otherwise there are a couple real scares in here.read more

One of the best short story anthologies I've come across so far. Yes I am a fan of the horror genre but that doesn't even come into play here. These are well crafted, original stories that can amuse (Chet Williamson's Excerpts from the Records of the New Zodiac and the Diaries of Henry Watson Fairfax), disturb (Edward Lee's ICU), enthrall (Joe R. Landsdale's Mad Dog Summer) and fascinate (Neil Gaiman's Keepsakes and Treasures: A Love Story). And that's just to name a few, there isn't a disappointing story in here.read more
