This is a superb collection of horror and dark sci-fi short stories. The 12 stories all come from different contributors and are varied in writing style and technique, but still maintain the theme of the collection, which is dreams and nightmares. I liked basically all of the stories, with Mens Rea by Steven Savile, All Becomes as Wormwood by Angeline Hawkes, and YY by Jennifer Pelland being my favorites. Letters from Weirdside by Lavie Tidhar and The League of the Last Girls by Christopher Rowe were the weaker stories of the group for me. All in all, a wonderful read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978867629, Paperback)

Aegri Somnia is a Latin phrase, one that slides like silk off your tongue. It means, literally, ""A sick man's dream."" When you present a theme such as ""aegri somnia"" to a group of twisted horror writers, well, you should expect disturbing results. Read this book, and you'll have twelve names to listen for while spying the police scanner. You'll find yourself wanting to buy more locks for the windows, for the doors. If there are twelve people like this hiding in the masses, then there's got to be more...Contains fiction from Scott Nicholson, Cherie Priest, Christopher Rowe, Steven Savile, Lavie Tidhar, Jennifer Pelland, Eugie Foster, Nancy Fulda, Mari Adkins, Angeline Hawkes, Rhonda Eudaly, and Bryn Sparks.
