Synopses & Reviews
In a second distinguished collection of twenty superb, sublimely dark tales written especially for this volume, such acknowledged contemporary masters of horror fiction as Barbara Hambly, John Farris, James Sallis, Steve Niles, Tananarive Due, L. A. Banks, and Gary Brandner serve up a veritable feast of fear.
For the second time, Dark Delicacies, the world's foremost horror bookstore, lends its famous name and imprimatur to an anthology designed to please the palate of the genre's most discriminating fans. Throughout, the editors Del Howison (co-owner of Dark Delicacies) and leading horror anthologist Jeff Gelb present perfectly crafted, freshly original horror-fiction fare that is as terrifying as it is chillingly delicious.
"There is plenty of gore....All of the stories are wisely chosen and deserve attention and comment." Library Journal
"[T]hese 19 unnerving and satirically macabre stories seal Dark Delicacies good repute as sponsor of one of the best new horror anthology series." Booklist
