This fiendish anthology, complied by the horror genre’s most acclaimed editor, drags you into the twisted minds of modern masters at their fiendish best. Visionary storytellers including Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Carroll, Joyce Carol Oates, Peter Straub, Connie Willis, and many more, fill this collection of tales lyrical and strange, monstrous and exhilarating, horrific, and transformative.
In these tales you will find:
A sweetly vengeful voice on the radio who calls a young soldier out to join a phantom patrol
A hotel maid who threw her newborn child from a fourth-story window lingers in an interminable state
An intern in a paranormal research facility who delves deeply into the unexplained deaths of two staff members
A serial killer plans his ultimate artistic achievement: the unveiling of an extremely special instrument in a very private concert
At once familiar and shocking, these unexpected and terrifying stories will haunt you long after you put down your book and turn out the light.
