The Year's Best Dark Fantasy and Horror 2012

( 8 )

Overview

Take a journey into darkness. Visit places where one might expect to find the dark - in a house where love was shared and lost, a milky-white pool in an Australian cave, the trenches of World War I, the deep woods. You would not be surprised to find the dark in a cheap apartment on the wrong side of town, down mean streets, under a gallows-tree, along dank passageways, trapped underground, in the near future, or among the mysteries of old New Orleans. Dunes, lakes, isolated cabins, old books, and Old West saloons...

Overview

Take a journey into darkness. Visit places where one might expect to find the dark - in a house where love was shared and lost, a milky-white pool in an Australian cave, the trenches of World War I, the deep woods. You would not be surprised to find the dark in a cheap apartment on the wrong side of town, down mean streets, under a gallows-tree, along dank passageways, trapped underground, in the near future, or among the mysteries of old New Orleans. Dunes, lakes, isolated cabins, old books, and Old West saloons - well, the darkness might easily be there. But we've also found locales you thought were safe from shadows - a rib joint with good blues playing, inside an old wardrobe, on a baseball diamond, the Beverly Wilshire Hotel...
Travel into the best dark fantasy and horror from 2011 with more than five-hundred pages of tales from some of today's best-known writers of the fantastique as well as new talents - stories that will take you to a diverse assortment of dark places.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The latest edition of this annual anthology brings together stewards of the dark fantasy and horror scene including Stephen King, Kelley Armstrong, Joel R. Lansdale, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Naomi Novik, Charles de Lint, Glen Hirshberg, and Gene Wolfe. A trade paperback original worth keeping.

Publishers Weekly
Guran's third annual retrospective anthology offers a wide-ranging variety of fantasy and horror stories by new and established writers. In Catherynne M. Valente's "The Bread We Eat in Dreams," a demon falls in love with a small town and seduces it with her baking. In Joe R. Lansdale's "The Bleeding Shadow," a musician finds that selling his soul to play the blues is only the beginning of his supernatural problems. Caitlín R. Kiernan's "The Maltese Unicorn" is a noir fantasy about a demon and a madam vying over an obscene artifact, while Norman Partridge pours the lawlessness and vast unknown of the American frontier into the horrific underground vampire city of "Vampire Lake". Naomi Novik, Tanith Lee, and Priya Sharma all contribute vivid, memorable stories that depend less on plot than magnificent world-building and atmosphere. The anthology could be more selective-in Gene Wolfe's "Josh," the reasons behind the horror are not so much implied as incomprehensible, and Maureen McHugh's dreary near-future "After the Apocalypse" is horror only in that the protagonist is horrible-but it still collects some creative and unforgettable works.

    My rating is more for BN than for the book it self. I love the book. Book I give 5 stars. However, it says it is an unsupported format on my 1st gen nook when I try to read it. I have to read it either on my computer or on my phone.
