A collection of original horror and dark fantasy from the world's best writers, including Stephen King and John Ajvide Lindqvist.
Many of us grew up on The Pan Book of Horror Stories and its later incarnations, Dark Voices and Dark Terrors (The Gollancz Book of Horror), which won the World Fantasy Award, the Horror Critics' Guild Award and the British Fantasy Award, but for a decade or more there has been no non-themed anthology of original horror fiction published in the mainstream. Now that horror has returned to the bookshelves, it is time for a regular anthology of brand-new fiction by the best and brightest in the field, both the Big Names and the most talented newcomers.
“The abundance of talent will provide ample delights and frights for anyone in search of true classic horror” ―Publisher's Weekly (starred review)
