In this vilifying volume you will rediscover terrifying tales by, amongst many others, Poppy Z. Brite, Jonathan Carroll, Harlan Ellison, Elizabeth Hand, Michael Marshall Smith, Peter Straub, F. Paul Wilson, Gahan Wilson and Gene Wolfe, along with an overview of the year in horror by the editors and a nightmare necrology of those who kicked off this mortal coil during that period.
So get ready to spread your wings and take a bite out of this latest anthology of agony. And dont forget to tell your fellow fiends about our new series of Best New Horror reprints. Just let them know who sent you . . .
