Sorry for virtually the same review on whole anthology set

I own a trade sized paper back.

I started this anthology with the 5th Annual and I loved it so much I started collecting the whole set by signing up for pre-orders with the book store.

What sets this anthology apart from many others is that I always find two or three gems within its pages, many liked stories and very few I have to force myself through. More importantly, from those people I have noted who read these anthologies too, they say

I never really explored this type of genre in depth before -- not really into all of the gore that I thought this genre represented. I was very pleasantly surprised -- it was closer to Edgar Allen Poe or Rod Serling. I enjoyed most of the stories very much -- thought provoking; very entertaining.

The stories are a mixed bag, but on the who ...more

This is not one of my favorite anthologies. There were a few good stories, of course, but most of them were dark and depressing no matter which catagory (fantasy or horror) they were placed in. The ones that stand out in my memory as pleasant were those by my favorite authors de Lint, Yolen, and Gaiman. Two of those three were poetry pieces.
