Inhaltsangabe: "Superstar editor Datlow makes no missteps..." --Publishers Weekly Take a terrifying journey with literary masters of suspense, including Peter Straub, Kim Newman, and Caitlin R. Kiernan, visiting a place where the other is somehow one of us. These electrifying tales redefine monsters from mere things that go bump in the night to inexplicable, deadly reflections of our day-to-day lives. Whether it's a seemingly devoted teacher, an obsessive devotee of swans, or a diner full of evil creatures simply seeking oblivion, the monstrous is always there--and much closer than it appears.
Rezension: Praise for Darkness: Two Decades of Modern Horror "This diverse 25-story anthology is a superb sampling of some of the most significant short horror works published between 1985 and 2005. Editor extraordinaire Datlow (Poe) includes classic stories from horror icons Clive Barker, Peter Straub, and Stephen King as well as SF and fantasy luminaries Gene Wolfe, Dan Simmons, Neil Gaiman, and Lucius Shepard. The full diversity of horror is on display: George R. R. Martin's 'The Pear-Shaped Man' about a creepy downstairs neighbor, and Straub's 'The Juniper Tree,' which chronicles a drifter's sexual molestation of a young boy, exemplify horror's sublime psychological power, while Barker's 'Jacqueline Ess: Her Will and Testament' and Poppy Z. Brite's 'Calcutta, Lord of Nerves' are audaciously gory masterworks. This is an anthology to be cherished and an invaluable reference for horror aficionados." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Eclectic ... a complete overview of some of the best horror stories published in the last twenty years." --SF Site "I give my highest recommendation for this book." --Hellnotes Praise for Hauntings "Apt to entertain and disquiet the horror fans." --SF Site, Featured Review "Datlow once again proves herself as a master editor. Her mission to broaden readers' concepts of what a haunting can be is nothing short of a success, and the twenty-four stories on display run the gamut from explicitly terrifying to eerily familiar. Readers who wish to be haunted themselves should not miss this one. Highly recommended." --Arkham Digest "Ms. Datlow has assembled a formidable community of eminent genre artists working at the very heights of their literary powers to create this outstanding dark fantasy anthology. This is the best of the best--don't miss it!" --The Tomb of Dark Delights "I have a short list of editors that I will buy an anthology of, regardless of whether or not I have even heard of the writers it contains, and Ellen Datlow is at the top of that list. She has this crazy knack of consistently putting together stellar anthologies and Hauntings is no different." --Horror Talk Praise for Lovecraft's Monsters "[An] amazing and diverse treasure trove of stories. As an avid fan of Lovecraft's monstrous creations, THIS is the anthology I've been waiting for." --Shattered Ravings "Editor Ellen Datlow has put together an anthology that will rock your liquid fantasies. Tachyon Publications has produced an excellent themed anthology. Lovecraft enthusiasts will plunge into the volume and be happily immersed in the content." --Diabolique "Datlow brings together some of the top SF/F and horror writers working today and has them play in Lovecraft's bizarre world. And that's a delight." --January Magazine Praise for The Cutting Room A Publishers Weekly Book of the Week "Superstar editor Datlow makes no missteps in this reprint collection of dark tales involving movies and moviemaking... the entire volume is outstanding." --Publishers Weekly, starred review A Kirkus Excellent Horror Read for October "This themed anthology revolves around the idea that the separation between what is real and what we see on film is not as clear as we'd like to think it is. What if, for example, the Wicked Witch of the West didn't stay in Oz? What if James Dean got a second chance at life? These are just some of the weird-but-cool ideas explored in this tempting volume of stories from renowned editor Ellen Datlow" --Kirkus "This collection of 23 stories should appeal to fans of horror and SF primarily, though noir and hard-boiled-mystery readers should feel welcome too... Definitely worth checking out." --Booklist "It's pretty much a given that an Ellen Datlow anthology will at least be good, if not great... 'The Cutting Room' is no exception." --Bookshots "Horror cinephiles and bibliophiles will have extra cause to rejoice this Halloween: The Cutting Room, a literary anthology, is an October treat." --Diabolique
