       Additional Information  
      Good horror writers can set up a disturbing situation, then add an extra turn of the screw. The sound of a tree branch tapping the window on a winter night--what if that tree suddenly appeared out of nowhere? The bare scalp and wide eyes of a starving child in Somalia--what if that child began to drain your body in order to stay alive? This ninth volume in the award-winning Best New Horror anthology series is packed with such chilly treasures. Not only does editor Stephen Jones have an admirably discerning eye for the best-written tales in the field, he also introduces American horror readers to topnotch writers from the U.K., such as Simon Clark, Christopher Fowler, and Stephen Laws. And there's humor, too: You'll laugh while you shudder, reading novella-length satires of The Bridges of Madison County and the filmmaking style of Francis Ford Coppola.

    No doubt about it--this series is getting better every year.
