    A Scenic Tour Through 20 Years of Horror

    This is an excellent anthology covering 20 years of The Mammoth Book of the Best New Horror. For each year of TMBOBNH from 1989 - 2009 the editor, Stephen Jones, has chosen one story that he feels really stood out and delivered something very special to the genre. My son bought this book for me for my birthday and I have to say; Excellent choice! I thoroughly enjoyed this volume and am now determined to track down copies of TMBOBNH for each and every year. I have been passing this title by for years and years and I am very sorry about that, I had no idea what I was missing. I especially enjoyed; "White" by Tim Lebbon, "Cleopatra Brimstone" by Elizabeth Hand, "My Death" by Lisa Tuttle and "Emptiness Spoke Eloquent" by Caitlin Kiernan.

    The stories range from merely creepy to horrific and the volume as a whole is probably best suited to adults and older teens. There is violence, a light smattering of gore and, at least one pretty unusual sex scene, so overall, not for the faint of heart or those of delicate sensibilities. However, for those who enjoy a little darkness from time to time, this book is a nice, strong cuppa and I highly recommend it.
