Ten tall tales of horror, dark fantasy and dark science fiction, commissioned from some of the most twisted imaginations writing today, as part of NewCon Press' 10th anniversary celebrations. Each story is inter-leafed with a wicked limerick from that master of terror, Ramsey Campbell.
This anthology of stories delivers a mixture of varied and impressive styles, each unique in their conception of chilling tales. I love the extreme and this book does not dissatisfy the appetite for true terror. Beta Shepherd (The Best Books for Horror with Fantasy)
