With tales from Laird Barron, Stephen King, John Langan, Peter Straubb, and many others, and featuring Datlow's comprehensive overview of the year in horror, now, more than ever, The Best Horror of the Year provides the petrifying horror fiction readers have come to expect--and enjoy."--from publisher's description|

"A paraplegic millionaire hires a priest to exorcise his pain; a failing marriage is put to the ultimate test; hunters become the hunted as a small group of men ventures deep into a forest; a psychic struggles for her life on national television; a soldier strikes a grisly bargain with his sister's killer; ravens answer a child's wish for magic; two mercenaries accept a strangely simplistic assignment; a desperate woman in an occupied land makes a terrible choice... What scares you? What frightens you? Horror wears new faces in these carefully selected stories. The details may change. But the fear remains." --p. of cover.
