What is it about New England that makes it such a fertile ground for growing great horror writers? Being a Texan, I am mystified, but being a horror lover, I do appreciate whatever it is.

Well chosen stories by top flight authors and even takes extra points for artistry by including poems.

My favorite stories were the ones that had a bitter sweetness to them, making them more dark fiction than actually horror.

The Christopher Chair by Paul McMahon--a relic that cures also exacts a price.

All anthologies are uneven, but this collection from the New England Horror Writers has some creepy gems in it. I was put off by the first story about an evil CPAP machine, which I found weak, but it picks up from there and a number of the pieces were very effective. The Christopher Chair, Perfect Witness, and Stony's Boneyard are the stronger stories and well written. There are a lot of bag horror anthologies out there, so it's nice to read one that pays off. I would recommend this to people wh ...more
