All American Horror of the 21st Century: The First Decade, 2000 - 2010by Mort Castle (Editor)
ALL AMERICAN HORROR OF THE 21ST CENTURY: The First Decade is a compilation of the best short horror fiction published by magazines, anthologies, and websites spanning the years 2000 to 2010. These stories deal with "uniquely American" themes and subjects, and are written in an equally unique "American style." Contributors include National Book Award-nominee Dan Chaon, rising- horror-star Jeff Jacobson, Bram Stoker Award-winner John Everson, World Fantasy Award-winner Andy Duncan, and New York Times-bestselling author Tom Monteleone.
There are plenty of good-quality horror collections out there, but this anthology is truly one-of-kind. This is a book for fans of Stephen King AND Raymond Carver, of Richard Matheson AND Dave Eggars, of Shirley Jackson AND Alice Hoffman. This is the only book to offer wide-ranging, but always modern and uniquely American horror stories. Readers are in for a rare treat with this prodigious collection to raise hairs and chill blood. Nothing compares to the breath of talent and creativity to be found in these pages. Have at it, dear reader!
