A World of Horror, edited by Eric J. Guignard, is the longest lingering collection on the review shelves, an anthology I started exploring at the tail end of the summer. It was an entirely new-to-me slate of authors, which is probably why I lingered over it for so long. While there are a handful of Western stories - Canada, USA, England, Australia - the others are from South Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Japan, Philippines, and more. A truly global slate of horror.

That diversity was something of a challenge for me. Some of the stories were just too different from what I am used to, from what I look for in horror, that I struggled to find my way into them. Highlights for me included the weird horror of ON A WOODEN PLATE, ON A WINTER’S NIGHT
David Nickle and THE MAN AT TABLE NINE by Ray Cluley; the body horror of THE SECRET LIFE OF THE UNCLAIMED by Suyi Davies Okungbowa; the creepy road trip horror of SICK CATS IN SMALL SPACES by Kaaron Warren; and HONEY by Valya Dudycz Lupescu, a story of ghosts and memories.
