There sure are a lot of horror fiction anthologies out there, and often it’s too overwhelming to know which ones will deliver the goods. That’s one of the reasons why a “Year’s Best” antho is always a safe bet.
One to look for this year is the Year’s Best Hardcore Horror Vol. 2, recently published by Comet Press. It’s getting very good reviews, including a fantastic one from Publisher’s Weekly, and it’s doing well on the bestseller charts. A reprint of my series, “55 Ways I’d Prefer Not to Die,” leads off the book, and there are a number of extreme, splattery and plain nasty horror stories to whet your appetite for the dark side. It’s a big thick slab of twisted thoughts and gross-out terror. Other authors include Wrath James White, Stephanie Wytovich, Adam Cesare, Bryan Smith, Tim Wagonner, Alessandro Manzetti and many more.
