This book, WASTELANDS is absolutely awesome!! Got it for Xmas one year and have even used some of the stories in teaching my English classes- it's an anthology of stories about the apocalypse, and the world thereafter. WORTH IT. -- Jen from Quebec :0)

Hi Anna, I don't know if you might be interested but I have just completed a selection of Horror stories called Ultimate Shades of Horror that can be downloaded from Amazon. You might find this interesting reading. If you do, then please let me know.

Thank you

Tim (tim_taylor) | 55 comments One of the best, Joe R. Lansdale, started out in short fiction.
These are really good anthologies full of really weird, darkly humorous, twisted stories.
High Cotton: Selected Stories
Bumper Crop
Or you can go with the "best of" that contains many, if not all of the previous stories with
The Best of Joe R. Lansdale

By the way, just as a side note: Maybe it's just me, but I consider an anthology to be a collection of shorter literary works by several different authors, often united by a common motif or theme, while imo a book with short stories by one single author would rather qualify as a normal short story collection.

A fantastic anthology--if you like the old-fashioned scares--is
The Valancourt Book of Horror Stories Volume One by James D. Jenkins .

For more modern stories, I've always loved the The Year's Best Horror Stories XVI series.
