I choose this book to read the Bob Leman story. I looked through the offerings and picked some more must reads before I give the book back to library. There is no way I'm reading the whole thing. It's almost 866 pages and 50 stories.

Read:
~David A. Riley - The Lurkers in the Abyss - 1
~Gary Brandner - The Price of a Demon - 2
~Dennis Etchison - It Only Comes out at Night - 1
~Elisabeth Massie - Stephen - 4 Liked until the end which I find unmemorable in comparison to the beginning.
~Thomas Ligotti - The Glamour - DNF
~Poppy Z. Brite - Lord of Nerves - 1
~Lucy Taylor - The Family Underwater - 5
~Jack Ketchum - The Box - 2 - Glad I read it so I can understand when it's being referenced to but can't say I enjoyed it.
~Caitlin R. Kiernan - Tears Seven Times Salt - 2
~Terry Lamsley - The Toddler - 2
~Karl Edward Wagner - Sticks I read this in The Mammoth Book of Zombies - 5

2016 Read
~Come by Anna Hunger - 1*

2018 Read
~Stephen King - The Reach (AKA Do the Dead Sing?) - 2*
~Elisabeth Massie - Stephen - 4* 2nd reading, I like until the end which I find unmemorable in comparison to the beginning. Read twice 2015, 2018.
~Robert Bloch - The Hell-Bound Train - 4* Life lesson weaved into a horror story. awesome.
~Michael Shea - The Autopsy DNF. I dnf'd this story in another anthology also but so many people like it so I tried again but still couldn't finish it.
