Overview
Unlucky thieves invade a house where Home Alone seems like a playground romp. An antique bookseller and a mob enforcer join forces to retrieve the Atlas of Hell. Postapocalyptic survivors cannot decide which is worse: demon women haunting the skies or maddened extremists patrolling the earth.

In this chilling twenty-first-century companion to the cult classic Darkness: Two Decades of Modern Horror, Ellen Datlow again proves herself the most masterful editor of the genre. She has mined the breadth and depth of ten years of terror, collecting superlative works of established masters and scene-stealing newcomers alike.

Editor Datlow has compiled a stunning array of horror in her newest anthology, drawing on new and terrifying leaps in the genre. Some stories are plausible and others are otherworldly and fantastical, but all maintain a feeling of dread. A young woman relives the experience of sexual assault in Lisa Tuttle's "Closet Dreams." Margo Lanagan's "The Goosle" is a grisly reimagining of "Hansel and Gretel." A husband struggles and fails to love his doll-obsessed wife in Robert Shearman's eerie "That Tiny Flutter of the Heart I Used to Call Love." Each tale is inventive and startling. Perhaps the most arresting in the collection, Anna Taborska's "Little Pig," proves that horror grounded in realityin this case, a family being required to make an unbearable sacrificecan be the most horrific. This is the perfect introduction to the horror genre, especially for readers who don't crave easy scares but appreciate slow burn that lingers long after the book is closed. (Oct.)
