LIBRARY JOURNAL praises the anthology with a starred review.
Renowned authors such as Caitlin R. Kiernan, Robert Shearman, Garth Nix, and Kaaron Warren vividly capture the darkness, evil, and fear found in great horror fiction. VERDICT Noted anthologist Datlow once again draws upon her curating skills to highlight the best the genre has to offer. The variety of stories shines a light on the depth and breadth of this sometimes marginalized literary form.
In their starred review, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY lauds the volume.
Editor Datlow has compiled a stunning array of horror in her newest anthology, drawing on new and terrifying leaps in the genre. Some stories are plausible and others are otherworldly and fantastical, but all maintain a feeling of dread.
This is the perfect introduction to the horror genre, especially for readers who don’t crave easy scares but appreciate slow burn that lingers long after the book is closed.
At FANTASY LITERATURE, reviewer Terry Weyna delivers this reading status.
I’ve moved from that anthology to Ellen Datlow‘s NIGHTMARES, where I’m back to one story at a sitting, mostly because these stories are absolutely terrifying and my heart can take only so much.
