Ok, but as to the stories. Some are very good (Lisa Morton's EL CAZADOR, Maria Alexander's THOUGH THY LIPS BE PALE, and my personal fave, Simon Wood's THE SUNSEEKER), but the rest left me feeling like they were examples of exactly the sort of diluting horror Nicholson was bemoaning in his intro.
Overall, the book is fairly well edited. I found numerous spelling and formatting mistakes, all minor, but somewhat distracting. It's a shame because I really felt Scott was trying to raise the bar a bit. If anything, I think he maybe more firmly embedded it that much deeper into the wall.
This collection is full of a diverse cast of voices, each with their own story to tell and their own unique way of telling it. I found the collection a pleasant read and am pleased to report that the horror genre is alive and well.
Although I must admit, the most horrifying tale of all was Scott Nicholson's introduction, 'The Last American Horror Writer'. It painted a haunting picture of the utter disregard many people seem to have for the genre and the 'compromises' made in an attempt to pass off horror for what it wasn't by many big name authors. Like an iceberg calving into shards, the horror genre was splintering into several different sub-genres.
With the introduction of the Kindle and the free reign authors now possess on their own content, the future for horror, and all fiction, looks bright.
After buying the 99 cent specials I am more app to purchase Amazon Prime.
The only downside is the last 20% of the book was synopsis off all the editors novels, and nothing about the writers in the collection except for a web address after each story.

A collection of a variety of nightmares, ending in magic! I got it for free, but think it's worth the price if you pay. Mr. Nicholson knows what scares you!Published 4 months ago by D. Cole
Nothing about these stories were "horror", more like horrible.Published 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
I found the first two stories to be decent but not great. After that the creativity was nonexistent to the point of boring. I was extremely disappointed in this book as a whole.Published on May 21, 2012 by kyounse
I loved this short story collection of dark fiction. In all there are 8 stories by some wonderful authors: Kealan Patrick Burke, Simon Wood, and Joe McKinney among others. Read morePublished on December 12, 2011 by Char's Horror Corner
