Format: Paperback
With The Screaming Book Of Horror editor Johnny Mains, once more, brings us a diverse, eclectic and thoroughly enjoyable selection from horror writers both past and present. This time round he has cast the net even wider to include a few writers you may not have heard of along with plenty you most certainly will have.

John Llewellyn Probert gets us of to a strong start with Christenings Can Be Dangerous, a tale of ancient evil, churchyards, yew trees, witchcraft and revenge told in Probert's usual stylish yet cutting manner. Next up is a genuine rarity, an unpublished story by John Brunner, Larva in which a homophobic boy's life descends into nightmare after a failed mugging turns to tragedy, it's a nicely gory and brutal story.

Alison Littlewood's, The Swarm is a rich emotional tale examining the balance between science and life but although it was enjoyable it didn't have the strength of much of her other recent work. Robin Ince's Natural Selection is full of black humour as a woman embarks on a quest to find the perfect man using whatever gory means she can. Bernard Taylor brings us One For The Family another tale full of black humour as an American travels to meet his English relatives with some interesting results.

Anna Taborska takes us into the world of horror movies with the enjoyable Cut! where a film director makes a casting mistake with devastatingly, gory consequences. The Christmas Toys by Paul Finch is a memorable and strong story in which a robbery goes badly wrong when two amateur thieves attempt to rob a house at Christmas and meet some strange decorations.

Rhys Hughes multi-layered plot in The Quixote Candidate is inventive and full of his trademark wordplay as he warns us of the dangers of mistaking fiction for fact and vice versa.
