I finished this morning, and as I did not keep track of each and every story, I will comment as best I can on each story -- stand by for a few *********************spoilers*******************

The Limits of Fantasy by Ramsey Campbell -- this is probably my favorite story in the book, and it started it all. It is primarily about putting something into the world, and making it happen -- seems the spanking fantasy can make this sort of thing happen. intriguing story.

An interesting collection of short stories, with a curious mix of horror and lust that drives human motivation leading to horrifying situations. From new and established authors, both group turning out readable work. I really had low expectations from this book, so I was pleasantly surprised. The ultimate guilty pleasure! :)

A nice collection of short stories that are more erotic than horror. Recommended
