This book is strong on atmosphere and very subtle with the horror. If you love stories filled with such vividly described atmosphere that you feel as if you are *right there*, then you will enjoy this book.

The authors take you on a psychological journey of ghostly back roads and eerie towns. There is very little outright horror in this book...with most all of the stories, the "horror" in them is simply implied, and the reader is left to fill in the blanks, leaving you thinking about a story several moments after you've read it.

There is almost no gore in this book, it isn't very visceral at all. But if you are looking for more subtle ghost stories that you might cuddle up in front of a fire on a stormy night with, this might just fit the bill.

Eighteen original tales of terror and the grotesque from the greatest modern masters of the macabre, selected my award-winning editor Dennis Etchison.

This was a good collection of horror tales. Ones I liked included "Piano Bar Blues" by Melanie Tem and "Hammerhead"by Richard Laymon.
