    Very good collection, a broad range. I bought it for one story in particular, Canavan's Backyard, which is most excellent. I discovered I had read it in the past...true of many of these stories, as theya re all good enough to be anthologized in more than one collection. However, it brings together some good stuff.

    With most books of short stories, you get some good, bad, and inbetween. Most of these were pretty good, and even if not they were all written very well for the most part. Good fun for this time of year!

    Like with most anthologies, this was a mixed bag. There were several stories I liked and several I was indifferent to. One or two that I loved, and one story that I loathed.

    Reading this Book was a Mistake. Apart from some weird Bizzare stories most of the Stories were Boring, Bland, Childish & Cliched. A Bad After-taste.

    None of these stories were any good. The longer stories made me mad that I wasted that much time on a story that went nowhere.

    I read about half of the stories many years ago. I'm not going to rate the book because I haven't finished and I don't really remember the stories I've read. I read the following: something nasty caravan's back yard the Conqueror worm death to the Easter Bunny! the rubber room out of sorts down among the dead men The Crazy Chinaman Gravid Babies in darkness, angels aim for the heart Nona

    Amongst the best stories here are Bloch’s deeply nasty ‘The Rubber Room’, Stephen King’s nightscape, ‘Nona’ and Tanith Lee’s beautiful, literary gothic ‘Nunc Dimitis’. ‘Talent’ by Theodore Sturgeon is darkly comic and nicely observed and there are good stories from the likes of Steve Rasnic Tem, Chelsey Quin Yarbro and Ramsey Campbell. A decent mix and a high proportion of good stories.

    A very mediocre set of stories. Not worth spending time on them.

    Collection of very mixed quality, of which only 'Nunc Dimittis by Tanith Lee and 'The Chair' by Dennis Etchison' are of the highest quality, stretching through ordinary efforts by Stephen King, Robert Bloch and other horror luminaries to substandard efforts by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, Theodore Sturgeon and T.E.D. Klein. The low-light, as seems to be the case with any anthology in which you find him, is 'Death to the Easter Bunny' by the execrable Alan Ryan.

Solid, unexciting efforts by Ramsey Campbell, Gardner Dozois & Jack Dann, and Steve Rasnic Tem keep you turning the pages, hoping for something better to really knock your socks off, but it never really arrives. Readers without any previous exposure to the horror genre will find much to enjoy.

    A little bit dated, and a lot of the stories aren't the "type" of horror that thrills me. Still, with short bursts of reading time available I enjoyed reading a story here and there throughout the week. Some of them were still unique slants, even today.
