Publisher: New American Library
This stunning collection of never-before-published novellas and short stories by masters of the macabre brings to fans and newcomers an extraordinary showcase of state-of-the-art horror fiction. These are tales that strike beyond sheer terror -- their disturbing visions capture a darker reality with an artist's eye for truth. This is writing that will shape the way horror is viewed and written well into the next century.
STEPHEN KING, The Night Flier -- from the undisputed master of modern horror, a fast-paced novella with a vampire theme that is at once chillingly familiar and shockingly different.
PAUL HAZEL, Having a Woman at Lunch -- a black comedy in which four stodgy gentlemen confront the intrusion of the first woman into their business by concocting a rather fascinating lunch.
DENNIS ETCHISON, The Blood Kiss -- a labyrinth of mental mirrors that twists celluloid with fletch to create an unforgettable tangle of terror in movieland.
CLIVE BARKER, Coming to Grief -- from the author of the Books of Blood, a moving novella about a woman tormented by her mother's death and her own childhood fears.
THOMAS TESSIER, Food -- a disquieting tale of the strange romance between a bookish recluse and a woman of voracious appetites.
M. JOHN HARRISON, The Great God Pan -- a disturbing glimpse of dark gods and shattered lives, lost in the shadows of a twenty-year-old experiment gone awry.
DAVID MORRELL, Orange is for Anguish, Blue for Insanity -- from the creator of Rambo, the strange story of two men who successively unlock the secret of a painter's genius, only to face the terrifying consequences.
PETER STRAUB, The Juniper Tree -- from the author of Ghost Story, a novella of a boy's innocent escape into the bright world of moviehouse dreams that enfolds into a nightmare of sexual abuse and its lifelong consequences.
CHARLES L. GRANT, SpinningTales with the Dead -- a mesmerizing account of a bizarre family fishing trip, and a pleasant day of spinning tales that is clouded with dark truths.
THOMAS LIGOTTI, Alice's Last Adventure -- a gaze into a looking-glass of sheer terror as the eternally prepubescent hero of a children's story turns his creator's life into a very adult nightmare.
RAMSEY CAMPBELL, Next Time You'll Know Me -- a harrowing tale of a would-be author who thinks his ideas are being stolen and seeks retribution by trying to turn the writer's circle into a literary graveyard.
WHITLEY STRIEBER, The Pool -- from the author of Communion, an unsettling tale of innocence and alien intelligence.
JACK CADY, By Reason of Darkness -- a novella about a trio of Vietnam vets in a forest of fear that magnificently confirms the power of horror fiction as mainstream literature.
This brilliant collection will provide eerie delight for every reader whose mind is seeking to be stretched to the limit and whose nerves are aching to be twisted to the snapping point. Superlatively scary, and crafted by the most fertile imaginations of our time, these thirteen stories will suck you into a whirlpool of literary fear that can only be characterized as terrifyingly wonderful.
