Horror Another 100 Best Books

HORROR: ANOTHER 100 BEST BOOKS.

Edited by Stephen Jones and Kim Newman.

Introduction by Peter Straub.

REVIEW:

In this worthy sequel to Horror: 100 Best Books (1988), prolific anthologist Jones (Shadows Over Innsmouth) and novelist Newman (Anno Dracula) have gathered 100 appreciative short essays on landmark horror titles by todays top writers and critics in the genre, from Robert Silverberg on Cyril de Tourneurs The Revengers Tragedy (1607) to Tim Lebbon on Michael Marshall Smiths More Tomorrow & Other Stories (2003). Any work that inspires fear was fair game for selection, as evidenced by entries on such classics as Charlotte Brontës Jane Eyre, George Gissings New Grub Street and George Orwells 1984. Like its predecessor, this volume contains plenty of lively and candid commentary, such as British screenwriter Christopher Wickings insiders view of the pitiful efforts to adapt H.P. Lovecraft to film in his piece on Lovecrafts The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. A foreword by Peter Straub, lists of recommended reading and a selected webliography round out a volume every serious horror fan will want to own.  -- Publishers Weekly.

Overview: "Horror: Another 100 Best Books" features one hundred of the top names in the horror field discussing one hundred of the most spine-chilling novels ever written.

Each entry includes a synopsis of the work as well as publication history, biographical information about the author of each title, and recommended reading and biographical notes on the contributor. Author Peter Straub also offers a new foreword to the book describing the evolution of horror over the past two decades, from the way its written by a crop of new and exciting writers to the way its received by a new market of readers. "Horror: Another 100 Best Books" will be the definitive guide to the tremendous library of horror fiction available today, a reference that no fan can live without.

2005 Trade Paperback, Running Press. 272 pages. New / New. List $17.00.
