WONDERS. HORRORS. BEAUTY. TERRORS.From Ellen Datlow, awardwinning and genreshaping editor of more than fifty anthologies, and twenty of horror's established masters and rising stars, comes an all original look into the beautiful, terrible, tragic, and terrifying.Wander through visions of the most terrible of angels, the Seven who would undo the world. Venture through Hell and back, and lands more terrestrial and darker still. Linger a while in childhoods, and seasons of change by turns tragic and monstrously transformative. Lose yourself amongst the haunted and those who can't let go, in relationships that might have been and never were. Witness in dreams and reflections, hungers and horrors, the shadows cast upon the wall, and linger in forests deep.Come see what burns so bright. . . ."Every anthology is a balancing act, be it reprint or original, theme or unthemed. While I love editing themed anthologies, there's something especially challenging and fun about moulding an anthology with fewer boundaries. The editor has to be even more aware of varying tones, themes, voice, and locale in the stories she acquires.So what can you look forward to in FEARFUL SYMMETRIES? There are monsters-human and nonhuman. There are children-those who victimize, and those who are victims. There are supernatural horrors, psychological terrors, nourish dark fantasies, and downright weird fictions.Come on in, and make yourself a cozy little nook in the dark, and enjoy."-from Ellen Datlow's introductionFEARFUL SYMMETRIES was funded on Kickstarter. In addition to sixteen stories specifically solicited for the anthology, Ellen Datlow chose four stories submitted during the monthlong open reading period, adding some excellent new writers to the mix. So in addition to awardwinning and/or bestselling writers such as Brian Evenson, Jeffrey Ford, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Pat Cadigan, and Michael Marshall Smith, there are a few names with whom readers might not yet be familiar-yet. Writers such as Siobhan Carroll, Catherine MacLeod, and Carole Johnstone. Each writer in this book has a unique voice, and this multitude of voices has created a symphony that will continue to be appreciated for many years to come.
