Another wonderful collection of horror stories from editor Stephen Jones! The volume collects horrors of different kinds -- from the supernatural to the very real. As a whole, it contains some of the best, but a few in particular stand out for me, like the creepy "Fear the Dead" by Ramsey Campbell, "Cell Call" by Marc Laidlaw, "Story Time With the Bluefield Strangler" by John Farris, the disturbing "The Hanged Man of Oz" by Steve Nagy and "The Bereavement Photographer" by Steve Rasnic Tem, the entertaining "Mr Sly Stops for a Cup of Joe" by Scott Emerson Bull and "Child of the Stones" by Paul McAuley, and the haunting "The Silence of the Falling Stars" by Mike O'Driscoll. Of course I'm giving special mention to Neil Gaiman's "Bitter Grounds," which I've read before, but is as beautiful now as it was then. ( )
