The Best of Cemetery Dance, edited by Richard Chizmar

 

About the Book


The Best of Cemetery Dance showcases five dozen of the very finest short stories from the first 25 issues of Cemetery Dance magazine. Published over a period of nine years — and still publishing today — Cemetery Dance is the winner of the World Fantasy Award and the International Horror Critics Guild Award, as well as a recent nominee for both the British Fantasy Award and the American Horror Award.

Featuring a virtual who's who of today's greatest authors of dark fiction, The Best of Cemetery Dance is one of the most important books of the year — including contributions from Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Richard Laymon, Poppy Z. Brite, Jack Ketchum, Ed Gorman, Ramsey Campbell, Ray Garton, and dozens of others! This special collector's volume also features a brand new, exclusive interview with Cemetery Dance editor, Richard Chizmar. More than 800 pages of top-notch horror!

Named one of "1998's Best Books" by Publishers Weekly, and called "the most important anthology of the decade, much less 1998!" by Hellnotes, The Best of Cemetery Dance was nominated for every major award in the genre and is an outstanding addition to any collection.
