I was a little disappointed in these stories. Some were good, but most weren't really scary. And maybe in 1999 none were previously published, but since then some have been. I know I've read the Stephen King story in other books, and a couple others seemed familiar, too.

It\'s a book with many short stories, some I loved, others were simply o.k. But all & all it was a good read, others were great.

A ward-winning writer and editor Al Sarrantonio gathers together twenty-nine original stories from masters of the macabre. From dark fantasy and pure suspense to classic horror tales of vampires and zombies, 999 showcases the extraordinary scope of fantastical fright fiction. The stories in this anthology are a relentless tour de force of fear, which will haunt you, terrify you, and keep the adrenaline rushing all through the night.

I originally checked this book out from the public library for Neil Gaiman's story, but I found myself loving all the stories.

A must have for any horror enthusiast.
