Masques IV: All-New Works of Horror and the Supernatural

For the timid soul leafing through such a book as this for the first time....only four or five of these tales show human beings dying 'on camera,' so to speak -- though people are about to perish in approximately seven others.

So, yeah. Read most of this on the beach, today. Anyway - nice collection. Not necessarily in the same league as Shadows or Whispers or the Karl Edward Wagner collections, but still pretty tight. The best stories are:

Chet Williamson's ``The Pack''
Gahan Wilson's ``Sea Gulls''
F. Paul Wilson's ``Please Don't Hurt Me''
Bruce Boston's ``Animal Husbandry''
Ed Gorman's "The Coming of Night, the Passing of Day"
Graham Masterton "The Heart of Helen Day"
Kristin Kathryn Rusch's "Children"
Darrell Schweitzer's
