Horror stories edited by Etchison. There's some really good stuff here, including stories by Morrell, Koontz, and King, and some other stuff that isn't terribly great. I loved almost all of Clive Barker's early horror, for example, but here we have his "In the Hills, The Cities," a great title for a story that I just found rather silly. All in all, though, a pretty good collection. Maybe 3 and a half stars.
