Index To Twenty Years Of Best New Horror

Blurb:

For the past twenty years the annual Best New Horror series has been the major showcase for superior short stories and novellas of horror and dark fantasy. Edited by Stephen Jones, the World Fantasy Award, British Fantasy Award and International Horror Guild Award-winning series has published more than 450 stories by around 200 of the genre’s most famous and acclaimed authors, as well as those newcomers who are just starting out on their careers. To celebrate the anthology’s twentieth anniversary, the editor has selected from each volume one story that he considers to be the “best” for reasons explained in his historical introduction to each tale. As a result, some of horror’s biggest names are represented, including Stephen King, Clive Barker, Peter Straub, Harlan Ellison, Brian Lumley and Neil Gaiman, along with newer writers such as Joe Hill, Glen Hirshberg, Mark Samuels and Terry Lamsley. With a unique Introduction by Ramsey Campbell, and an indispensable Index detailing the entire contents of the series over all twenty volumes, The Very Best of Best New Horror is a tribute to the world’s premier annual anthology of contemporary horror fiction.

An Ouija board that predicted death … A body kept alive by force of will ….. A cursed family name …

Such tales as these are more usually associated with horror books and movies. However, these anecdotes are absolutely true! They are ,just a sample of the real-life experiences recounted by some of the world’s most famous frighteners, from such bestselling authors as Stephen King and James Herbert, to actor Vincent Price and director John Landis.

Collected together for the very first time, many or the most successful and well-known exponents, along with rising stars of the horror field, relate their fascinating encounters with the supernatural, revealing how such unique experiences have affected their lives and influenced their works.

Even for the experts, when it comes to Unexplained phenomena, fact can be much more frightening than fiction …
