Mammoth Book of Best New Horror Vol. 8


The Mammoth Book of Best New horror series edited by Stephen Jones is for the most part chock full of good scary stories. However, I have come to find that Jones favors British horror authors, and I sometimes come away from some stories thinking "WTF was that?", and not in a good way. As of Halloween 2004, I am half way through Volume 10. I have all of the volumes from Volume 8 to the latest volume, and starting with Volume 10, I plan on giving each story a rating out of 10 and a brief synopsis. After I have gone through, I will re-read Volumes 8 & 9, and the part of Volume 10 that I have already read. You should see these short synopses and ratings coming soon in Volume 10. 513 pp.
