Overview

There is nothing to fear but fear itself...

Twenty six original tales of horror by established masters of terror and talented new voices lie within this Lexicon of Fear.

Beware the dark power of words in BIBLIOPHOBIA...a carnival double act made in Hell can be found in the clown cemetery in COULROPHOBIA...an artist loses his power to create ice sculptures because of his fear of cold in FRIGOPHOBIA, but that is the least of his problems as his therapist suffers the same phobia...

The fear of open spaces manifests itself in KENOPHOBIA, a tale of the ultimate emptiness - the Great Void that awaits us all...the fear of beautiful women is fully justified in VENUSTROPHOBIA, a tale of futile defence against the Succubus...

...but beware: the cure may be worse...

Denying yourself a place in Heaven is one way to avoid JESUSPHOBIA, but the only alternative means Hell to pay...a playwright fights his fear of the colour yellow by creating an unusual addition to his Dramatis Personae in XANTHOPHOBIA...a Witchfinder's fear of open water will only be relieved by imbibing one of two deathly fluids in AQUAPHOBIA...and a widower follows the age-old advice of turning to face your fear in QIQIRN, only to uncover the true nature of an Inuit dog spirit that carries the essence of cold terror from its ancient homeland into the realm of human grief...

    Excellent anthology!

    This was an anthology that I can't recommend enough. This is a very well put together set of 27 stories, one for each letter of the alphabet and a bonus story, and each having to do with a particular phobia. It was great to read an anthology where every story was well thought out, and very good. It is also fun to see the different approaches that each writer brings to his or her story. While all of them were excellent, three stories stood out to me in particular. In Pteronophobia, G.R. Yeates uses his signature style to envelop the reader in a story with prose that is as beautifully written as it is nightmarish. With Dementophobia, Emile-Louis Tomas Jouvet uses his elegant sense of storytelling to give the reader an idea of what insanity may be like. And in Hagiophobia, Tracie McBride draws the reader in with a realistic portrayal of brutality that causes mental scars that never heal. I am looking forward to anything else that the editor of this collection, Dean M. Drinkel produces. Very highly recommended.
