This compilation is a varied representation of the genre of horror. The stories are easy to follow and many of them are imaginative and well-crafted. There were only a couple of zombie stories, which are told from an interesting point of view—one is told from the vantage point of a character turning into one. Sorry to report there are no vampire stories; however, many horror fans are rather over-dosed on the blood suckers at the moment anyway. The rest of the tales are about psychological horror, the horror of human behaviour, with a sprinkling of apocalyptic storylines. I didn’t find myself so frightened I couldn’t turn out the light before bed, but I did find myself feeling disturbed or rattled by some of the concepts. I hope that Mosiman continues to round up more work to be published, especially by underrepresented female writers. I recommend this book. You won't be disappointed.
