More About the Author

Thana Niveau lives in a crumbling gothic tower in Wicker Man country. She shares her life with fellow horror scribe John Llewellyn Probert, in a Victorian library filled with arcane books and curiosities.

All her life Thana has been drawn to the darker aspects of life. She was a fearful child, plagued by nightmares and anxiety. Horror saved her. Scary films gave her an outlet for all that darkness and fear became her friend. Jason and Freddy were her childhood companions. On the literary side, Poe was her first great horror love, followed swiftly by Stephen King and Ramsey Campbell. Their stories frightened her while at the same time inspiring her. She still had nightmares, but now they were more like visits from a slightly sadistic muse. Writing all the scary stuff down turned it from a curse into a blessing.

3.0 out of 5 stars The horror continues.... 12 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback
Here (he said in his best Alan `Fluff' Freeman voice) are my top five Pick of the Pops from `The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror 22' -

At number five we have Scott Edelman's `What Will Come After'. One of a number of zombie tales in this volume, but the one which comes closest to being actually touching. A slow and sombre tune for the broken hearted amongst you.

Straight into number four is Mark Morris's `Fallen Boys'. An effective little ghost story set on a school trip to a Cornish mine. More terrifying than even The Wurzels!

Holding steady at number three is Garry Kilworth's `Out Back'. If you read only one headless monster tale this year, make it this one!

A new entry at number two is Ramsey Campbell's `With The Angels'. Another short story hit from the master of the form! Two old ladies and some children visit a deserted house. Utterly superb, chilling and groovy!

And, finally, holding onto the top spot, is Norman Partridges's 'Lesser Demons'. An exciting tale of the blood-faced undead attacking a small town. Gory, scary and thoroughly entertaining. A zombie tale with a taste of that good old hitmeister H.P. Lovecraft. Simply fab!

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary Stuff 31 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
I am a huge horror fan so this book was right up my street. My dad bought me my first Mammoth book when I was about 8 or 9, it was a Mammoth Book of Vampires and I have been hooked on these types of books ever since.

The Mammoth books are great because you get to read all the well known writers shorts stories as well as some new ones you probably wouldn't have come across. There is so much talent out there, these are a great way to showcase it. Nothing beats an Autumn night, the dark nights drawing in, your breath in the cold night sky and sitting curled up on a nice warm sofa with a good horror story.

Best of Horror is edited by Stephen Jones and starts off with an introduction to Horror in 2010. He goes in depth into what is new in horror and covers all the great as well as any up and coming stars. This is Stephen Jones interpretation of what horror is over 2010.

This book is jammed packed fully of horror and great stories alike. There is something in here for everyone, you won't love them all, but there will be at least one story in here that will have the hairs on your neck standing on end. At least one story in here that will have you checking under your bed before you go to sleep and at least one story in here which will have you sleeping with the lights on.

One of my favourites in this book is Christmas with the Dead by Joe R Lansdale. I know it's not a Halloween story but how many horror Christmas stories which include zombies are there? Not many, this one was creepy but I felt so much empathy with the characters. It is a ding dong zombie ride. One that stuck with me out of all the stories.

Another was Just Outside Our Windows, Deep Inside Our Walls by Brian Hodges.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok I suppose... 13 Nov 2013
By VMJ
Format:Kindle Edition
I don't know what I expect from a horror anthology, I only know I usually don't get it.
This is no exception.
Apart from one or two of the stories, the book offered a mundane collection of tales that may have garnered praise from editors and a sense of self-satisfaction for the authors, but left me cold (and not in the required sense).
Perhaps I'm not in tune with the genre in its current form, but these half-formed, nebulous offerings have put me off reading anything else from these authors.
I've given the book 2 stars as the introduction was interesting and informative and 2 of the stories worth reading.
