This is an excellent collection of horror stories. There is no pattern or common thread to them other than being scary and well written. Some like "The Sailor Home from the Sea" are almost old-school in style but all of them deliver in the punch. And the article/journal by Kelly Laymon about Keene Con (a multi-day party thrown by Brian Keene) gives a fun view of some of the humor horror novelists have. For you completists out there, "Tender Tigers" by Nancy Collins is a Sonja Blue story. Almost every single story was a big hit with me and it was hard picking out my top ones to list. Think of these stories not as the icing on the cake but as that extra scoop of ice cream sitting next to that cake and icing.

"The Hand of Glory" by Simon Clark - While cleverly used to burgle some homes, the hand of glory has some unfortunate side effects.

"Hermanos De El Noche" by Bentley Little - Improper Spanish aside (it should be "Hermanos Del Noche"), the story involves a man doing his best to rescue his wife from some vampires.

"White-Out" by Peter Crowther and Simon Conway - A woman sees her counselor in an attempt to exorcise her dead husband's ghost.

"The Wager" by Thomas F. Monteleone - Two men try again and again to one-better the other.

"That Extra Mile" by David Niall Wilson and Brian A. Hopkins - Newly started jogging leads a man to fighting crime. ( )
