Prime Books | November 2, 2010 | Trade Paperback

The Year's Best Dark Fantasy & Horror: 2010 Edition Sc is rated 1 out of 5 by 1.
Darkness surrounds us. We can find darkness anywhere: in a strange green stone etched with mysterious symbols; at a small town''s annual picnic; in a ghostly house that is easy to enter but not so easy to leave; behind the dumpster in the alley where a harpy lives; in The Nowhere, a place where car keys, toys, people disappear to; among Polar explorers; and, most definitely, within ourselves. Darkness flies from mysterious crates; surrounds children whose nightlights have vanished; and flickers between us at the movie theater. Darkness crawls from the past and is waiting in our future; and there''s always a chance that Halloween really is a door opening directly into endless shadow. Welcome to the dark. You may never want to leave. This inaugural volume of the year''s best dark fantasy and horror features more than 500 pages of dark tales from some of today''s finest writers of the fantastique. Chosen from a variety of sources, these stories are as eclectic and varied as the genre itself.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have rarely been so bored... there are some interesting (very few) dark stories but horror? I'm not quite finished the book yet, I still have 3 more stories to go...maybe they're keeping the best for last in the last 3 stories? (out of 18 stories). Very disappointed. Neil Gaiman quotes on the front cover: Paula Guran is the Grey eminence behind the world of horror. She is the secret mistress of the genre. Listen to her." Well, I say don't listen to her, she knows not what she speaks of.
