What has been accomplished here in this anthology compiled by Billie Sue Mosiman is that these horror stories hold up on merit alone. It is not a case of a gender specific story base. These are not "women stories"; they are primal examples of terror, subtle horror, and base fears--elements not uncommon to any good tale in this male-dominated field. As such, that makes these stories all the more noteworthy. We are not here to say these stories compare favorably to male-written stories of horror. Not at all. We are here to say that this anthology does not need comparison between genders. Fright Mare stands above comparisons. It is simply a frightening selection of stories that will scare you on so many levels that you'll wish you had chosen a less threatening male-written horror anthology.
