Abstract:

"Horror: Another 100 Best Books features one hundred of the top names in the horror field discussing one hundred of the most spine-chilling novels ever written. Each entry includes a synopsis of the work as well as publication history, biographical information about the author of each title, and recommended reading and biographical notes on the contributor. Author Ramsey Campbell also offers a new foreword to the book describing the evolution of horror over the past two decades -- from the way it's written by a crop of new and exciting writers to the way it's received by a new market of readers. "Horror: Another 100 Best Books will be the definitive guide to the tremendous library of horror fiction available today -- a reference that no fan can live without.

Stephen Jones has paired horror's leading authors with the genre's milestones, featuring Peter Straub on Stephen King, Joe R. Lansdale on Ray Bradbury, Edgar Allan Poe on Nathaniel Hawthorne, and many equally inspired matches.
