The best horror of the year ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 215 libraries worldwide
"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
Furnace by Livia Llewellyn( Book )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
"Lush, layered, multifaceted, and elegant, the thirteen tales comprising Furnace showcase why Livia Llewellyn has been lauded by scholars and fans of weird fiction alike, and why she has been nominated multiple times for the Shirley Jackson Award and included in year's best anthologies. These are exquisite stories, of beauty and cruelty, of pleasure and pain, of hunger, and of sharp teeth sinking into tender flesh." --
Engines of desire : tales of love & other horrors by Livia Llewellyn( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
"In his introduction to this volume, Laird Barron writes 'Scant difference exists between exquisite pleasure and pain.' An orphan girl with a mind for anthracite falls into the hands of a cult worshiping an entombed god. In the Pacific Northwest, evergreens lull prepubescent girls into their trunks to serve as wombs. A suburban housewife troubled by her present encounters the sixteen-year-old girl she ached to touch in her dreams. These ten stories promise to indulge the reader's sensibilities, their fears and desires."--Page 4 of cover
