I found out about this book on Stephen King's site... and it isn't available to wishlist!!!  **agony**  Here's a quick synopsis:

Featuring works from over 50 contributors, The Big Book of Necon provides hours of great horror/dark fantasy reading from some of the most important names in modern horror.

Highlights include works by Stephen King (The Old Dude’s Ticker), Peter Straub, F. Paul Wilson, Alan Ryan, Jack Ketchum, Christopher Golden, Brian Keene, Neil Gaiman, Ramsey Campbell, Tim Lebbon, Charles L. Grant, Thomas F. Monteleone, Gahan Wilson, Glenn Chadbourne, and many others!


I am soooo excited to get my hands on this book!  Gah, I wish it was available to wishlist!  Anyone heard anything about it?  The estimated release only says 2008.  WOW that's a great collection of authors!
