The first book in the annual series, Best New Horror is quite entertaining for fans of the genre. The anthology contains not only the usual forms of horror (ghost stories, creatures, etc.), but also the more subtle and the more real kinds. Although not all of the stories made a big impact on me, the book as a whole is a good and worthwhile read. ( )

I borrowed this from the library some years ago, and am glad to finally have it in my collection. This anthology contains the single most creepy story I have ever read: Robert R. McCammon's "Pin". ( )

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:23:49 -0400)

Best New Horror combines dozens of the best and grisliest short stories of today. For twenty-five years this series has been published in the United Kingdom as The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, and now comes to the US to delight and terrify thriller enthusiasts. This has been the world's leading annual anthology dedicated solely to showcasing the best in contemporary horror fiction. This newest volume offers outstanding new writing by masters of the genre, such as Joan Aiken, Peter Atkins, Ramsey Campbell, Christopher Fowler, Joe R. Lansdale, John Ajvide Lindqvist, Robert Silverberg, Michael Marshall Smith, Evangeline Walton, and many others! Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction--novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.… (more)
