Hello, I am getting excited for Halloween and want to read a horror anthology or two. I feel like you are the perfect person to ask. Do you have any recommendations?
Hmm. Alberto Manguel’s BLACK WATER anthology (it may be out of print, but there are copies around aplenty). Then Kirby McCauley’s DARK FORCES anthology (a 25th anniversary edition came out a few years ago). Both big, definitive and spooky. The Manguel is a nice look at horror/weird fiction over the years, the McCauley a terrific snapshot of most of the best writers we had thirty years ago.
