Synopsis

Twenty-eight spine-tinglers are showcased by the editors, both veteran horror writers,in this fine anthology, which runs the horror gamut from occult shocker to psychological thriller. Though it opens with a rather tasteless entry, K. W. Jeter's grisly "The First Time" (told with au courant splatterpunk brio), the collection redeems itself many times over with a score of tales that make the prerequisite suspension of disbelief a hair-raising pleasure. In Michael Marshall Smith's imaginative "The Man Who Drew Cats," a mysterious street-artist stretches his creativity to alarmingly grim lengths when an abused child wins his heart. Thomas Ligotti's fluently written novella, "The Last Feast of Harlequin," reveals the dark nature lurking just beneath the whiteface. The searing final image in "Cedar Lane," by Karl Edward Wagner, will invoke for many genre fans Ray Bradbury's classic "There Will Come Soft Rains." J. L. Comeau's riveting "Firebird" pits supernatural forces against a feisty ballerina who also happens to be a cop. In one of the collection's strongest entries, "Mister Ice Cold," cartoonist Gahan Wilson proves that a few thousand well-chosen words just might be worth more than a picture, after all.
