I don't know that a lot of these stories are "horror" in the sense that some of you might expect, but they are quite deeply unsettling as a whole. Many of what you'll find are examples of the horror that we carry within us or manifest internally, like in the unexpected choose-your-own-adventure tale 'A Haunted House Is a Wheel Upon Which Some Are Broken' provided by Paul Tremblay or the devastating 'Arbeit Macht Frei' by Lisa Mannetti.
Clive Barker's 'Coming To Grief' was my personal favorite, and a more subtle tale than a lot of his short fiction. Strangely enough, because I love his short fiction, my least favorite story was 'The Problem of Susan' by Neil Gaiman, a dark and perverse take on the world of Narnia...it wasn't necessarily a bad story in any way, but it felt like the weakest inclusion.
I definitely recommend this book, especially if you're looking to discover new authors you might not have already been familiar with.
Some left me vulnerable and with tears running in a way few stories have ever done.
I'm afraid to say more, this is a must read for anyone looking for a new experience with horror stories. This is unlike anything you have read before.
