"If you watch horror movies at all, it seems like everything has been done to death. Haunted dolls, monsters, strangers infiltrating your life….It’s all been done before. And then you read a collection like New Fears, and you realize there are still plenty of untapped depths of spooks and scares awaiting you, if you know where to look." - San Francisco Book Review (4-star review)

I had heard this collection was coming out months ago and was looking forward to reading it because it seemed to have a nice mix of veteran writers and some new names I had not heard of before. It was surprising to see Alison Littlewood and Sarah Lotz on the cover over larger horror names such as Brian Keene, Adam Nevill and Stephen Laws, but perhaps the first two writers I mentioned have a larger following in England. It didn't seem like a wise marketing choice, but I'll let that up to the publisher.
As for the content, all of the stories were entertaining to some degree, but the two real standouts were Josh Malerman and Ramsey Campbell, whose entries had a real sense of dread and buildup and clearly better than any of the other tales. However, I discovered four others that were quite strong by Stephen Gallagher, Angela Slatter, Brady Golden, and Brian Lillie. The rest were readable, but nothing amazing. However, the authors I named elevated the collection into the realm of a solid recommendation to any horror fan. Most of the stories were subtle and not in your face, so fans of gore or extreme violence should be aware that this is not that type of book.
A good collection of stories, like all collections, some where stronger than others.
Some favorites in this collection:
"Four Abstracts" by Nina Allan
"The Embarrassment of Dead Grandmothers" by Sarah Lotz
"House of the Head" by Josh Malerman
