These were my favorites: Mantis Wives, by Kij Johnson. The anthropologist living in my head was particularly delighted.
The Callers by Ramsey Campbell had a new take on old traditions carried forward, seemed an homage to The Lottery and The Wicker Man.
Dead Song by Jay Wilburn, surprised me. I liked it in spite of my eye-rolling dismissal of most zombie fiction. I was caught up in the documentary of the music and the regions. The last few paragraphs made me turn the lights on.
My favorite poem was Sleeping, I Was Beauty by Sandi Leibowitz. Gorgeous words and images.
This book, with its collection of expertly crafted and compelling stories, eased me back into the practice of daily reading and reminded me why I fell in love with books and storytelling in the first place. What's more, it's a great group of stories for people who love unsettling tales. I discovered some awesome new-to-me authors that I'm tracking down for more of their works now. Overall, it's great entertainment!

Neben "Best New Horror" die zweite wichtige Horror-Kurzgeschichten-Sammlung, auf die ich mich jedes Jahr wieder freue.
Gute Geschichten, abwechslungsreich. Jeder, der gerne Horror liest, sollte sich die Geschichten antun. Ich entdecke immer wieder Autoren, die ich nicht kannte. Mein armes Bücherregal.
Empfohlene Lesetaktik: Sofa, alle Geräuschquellen aus, Licht aus bis auf Leselampe und im Buch versinken.
