Hugo Award–winning series editor Datlow (The Best Horror of the Year, Vols. 1–11) brings together some of the greatest writers in the genre in this annual anthology. This year’s collection of 22 short stories showcases big-name authors as well as fresh voices. Joe Hill’s exemplary “You Are Released” is a story of World War III breaking out, as experienced through a group of plane passengers. Kristi DeMeester’s “Milkteeth” and Thana Niveau’s “White Mare” also stand out from the pack.
VERDICT A must-have volume for horror aficionados and a solid starter for readers looking to discover new authors in the genre.
