Abstract:

Presents a collection of twenty-one horror stories published in 2011, along with an essay that summarizes the achievements in the horror genre for novels, anthologies, magazines, and webzines.

"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."--Page 4 of cover.
