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.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. What an absolutely beautiful – and by beautiful I mean creepy and eerie, cover. I love horror as well and I am popping over to Goodreads to add it to my wishlist right now. I actually am planning on reading some more horror in May because I am missing it so much!
