One of the things that I love about Jones series is that he doesn't choose stories based on who sold the most, or who is most popular. Rather, he selects based on people doing new things in the genre, or people who are taking the old tropes and twisting them inside out. He's also managed to unearth a whole sackful of brand new authors who are now major names in the horror field, and has provided a regular venue for old superstars of genre like Neil Gaiman, Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell and Brian Lumley.
- Fuck. I was editing this post a few minutes ago, and Internet Crapsplorer crashed (I'm at the library). I lost about half an hours work. Asshole fucking program. Let me try again, however. What the fuck happened to autosave? It's supposed to go off every 3 minutes or something.
After the Jump Link, per my usual habit, is a list of the stories in this volume, along with my thoughts (slight though they may be) on each of them. I try not to give away too much, but I might not be able to help myself. You have been warned. Take care, and a friend.....
No! No!! Don't open the link!! DON'T OPEN THE LINK!!!!!
