Format: Paperback
October 2010 has been a great month for horror anthologies. First we get the reprint of the first Pan Book Of Horror Stories and now the latest edition of its spiritual successor. With 17 tales of horror from some of the best in the business it promises a lot but does it deliver?

* The Pier by Thana Niveau

This story takes us to the remains of a burnt out pier in an English seaside resort. Despite the warnings Alan and Claudia venture out onto the pier revealing its dark secrets. Short story but with rich descriptive passages evoking an excellent sense of place, 4/5.

* Minos or Rhadamanthus by Reggie Oliver

A former schoolboy is reunited with his sadistic former teacher in unusual circumstances in this dark story of punishment and torture, 4/5.

* Morning's Echo by Joel Lane

A very short story concerning an unusual affair, short but clever, 3/5.

* It Begins at Home by John Llewellyn Probert

JLP's fiction often tends to the humorous side of scary but this story is much darker as it exposes the black heart of advertising, 4/5.

* Flitching's Revenge by Gary Power

An excellent tale of revenge as a group of vigilantes pick on the wrong person, 5/5.

* Rest in Pieces by David Williamson

Undertaker, nagging wife...need I say more. A humorous take on the revenge story, 4/5.

* Walk To The Sea by Rog Pile

Rog Pile evokes a marvellously, malevolent air in this story in which a walk on the beach turns into a nightmare, 5/5.

* Romero's Children by David A. Riley

A new and clever take on the much used and abused zombie tale in which an anti-ageing drug has some terrible side effects, 5/5.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are 17 tales here covering many aspects of the horror genre, some chilling, others disturbing and the odd curved ball of as tale thrown in that doesn't always work.

The Pier (Thana Niveau) - a great opener, a couple go for a walk along an old largely abandoned pier following a series of odd signs, the woman leaves but the man continues ignoring the obvious clues that something is wrong.
Minos or Rhadamanthus (Reggie Oliver) - back to school, a student who used to be beaten regularly by one of his teachers re-visits the school and particularly an old cricket pavilion, has a really nice twist, nice to see a decent ghost story this early on in a collection.
Morning's Echo (Joel Lane) - very short, 4 pages. A policeman befriends a girl who is looking for her lost boyfriend and come across a series of body parts.
It Begins at Home (John Llewellyn Probert) - a down on his luck photographer cannot capture that tear jerking image his boss wants for a charity campaign. He is advised to see a professional charity photographer where he learns a few disturbing tricks of the trade, a particularly nasty and delightful story filled with black humour.
Flitching's Revenge (Gary Power) - an outsider falsely accused of murder and killed by a small group of local officials returns from the grave to seek revenge. Oddly this has quite a subdued ending.
Rest In Pieces (David Williamson) - an undertaker hatches a plot to take care of his nagging wife, not one of the best tales here.
