Now in its twenty-fourth year, The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror makes for great reading. Its stories are just the right length, never outstaying their welcome, while frequently clever, creepy, funny and scary. It's a great collection. (Starburst)

Protagonists investigating strange goings on and stories involving caves and tunnels and deep dark places are recurring motifs this year, as are bodies of water; rivers and lakes and seas and oceans. These stories succeed in taking deceptively simple events and yet making them fresh and unsettling. It's also quite a sombre, thoughtful volume this year, and that's no bad thing. This is horror, this is where it's at and it has matured, it has grown up.

As with Ellen Datlow's 'The Best Horror of the Year: Volume Five' there are no novellas this year, so the page count is not as mammoth as recent instalments. Detractors, though, should bear in mind that an anthology editor's budget allows them to buy the reprint rights to X amount of stories: as to what the final page tally comes to once all those stories are gathered together is irrelevant. So, this year we have one poem and twenty-one short stories, ranging from a single page long to Reggie Oliver's 27 page novelette. The quality, though, remains high. Those readers, however, concerned only with how big the book's girth is would perhaps be better off reading a novel instead: short stories are about quality, not quantity after all.

There is one overlap with Datlow's book and two with Paula Guran's 'The Year's Best Dark Fantasy and Horror: 2013', though neither Datlow or Guran overlap with each other. There are, however, quite a number of authors who appear is more than one volume, but represented by different stories. All told there are a total of 82 different stories showcased this year.

To be honest whilst I'm a fan of Horror and love the idea of a compendium bringing the best of the genre to the fore, I felt a little let down with this book as the New Wave of Horror is not really to my own personal taste. Its too safe, it tends to rely on a singular pay off line and all round really doesn't put a chill down my spine.

Don't get me wrong, the book does have some spectacular pieces within but when I'm not getting that chill then I feel a little let down. All round the pieces within will more than please a fair few readers as the stories are to the point, great for travel and of course give the reader a great way to kill some travel time but for me its just a so so title.
