Monsterrific stories by top names in horror writing

Vampires, Werewolves, Zombies, Ghouls . . . these and many other Creatures of the Night are featured in this bumper collection of stories by such authors as Clive Barker, Harlan Ellison, Ramsey Campbell, Brian Lumley, Tanith Lee, Michael Marshall Smith, Kim Newman, Joe R. Lansdale, Lisa Tuttle, R. Chetwynd-Hayes, Basil Copper and many others. Here you’ll discover creatures both unnatural and man made, as the walking dead rise from their graves, immortal bloodsuckers seek human nourishment, deformed monstrosities pursue their victims across the countryside, and the ugliest of nightmares is revealed to have a soul. Drawn from the pages of legend and literature, these stories feature Things that slither, stagger, swoop, stomp and scamper. So bolt the doors, lock the windows and shiver in the shadows, because no-one is safe when the Monsters are loose .

Kim Newman – Out of the Night, When the Full Moon is Bright…

Jo Fletcher – Bright of Moon (verse)

Not got this one, but it looks fairly lively and I can certainly vouch for the excellence of “The Cell” and “Boobs”. The Wellman is an enjoyable pulp romp, almost as entertaining as it’s title, and “The Whisperers” is a good example of Hugh B. Cave’s work for “Spicy Mystery Stories.” Basil Copper’s story began life as a chapter in his “The Werewolf: In Legend, Fact And Art” and would’ve been ideal as a story in an Amicus anthology.

Thanks to Steve For the cover scan.
