Also by this author: Nightmares: A New Decade of Modern Horror
From the most acclaimed horror editor in the business comes the most groundbreaking horror of the new millennium. In Nightmares, editor extraordinaire Datlow has skillfully reprised her classic anthology Darkness: Two Decades of Modern Horror. Here you will find iconic authors mingling with unexpected new masters of terror. These tales represent the finest stories of a new era, in which evil both everyday and unfathomable will simply not go away.
In "Ambitious Boys Like You," two inexperienced thieves discover a a residence which makes Home Alone seem like a playground romp. The question of "Is She Wicked? Is She Good?," is asked by concerned parents whose cruel child courts fairy revenge. The "Ash Mouth Man" may be just a legend to girls who wish to waste away - but is he only worth just one kiss?
I’m a huge fan of horror and when I go too long without reading any I start getting antsy. (It’s been too long.) I just came across this upcoming horror anthology and it sounds spectacular. There are a total of 24 stories from various authors. A few authors to note: Dan Chaon (Await Your Reply), Margo Lanagan (Tender Morsels), Caitlín R. Kiernan (The Drowning Girl), Garth Nix (Sabriel), and Richard Kadrey (Sandman Slim). Here’s a complete list of authors if you’re interested.
