Haunted Legends edited Ellen Datlow and Nick Mamatas
This came out some time back and won the Stoker Award for the year... Edited by a couple of my favorite names in dark fiction Datlow and Mamatas. It's now out in paperback and possible has been for a while .... If you like this kind of thing here is the synopsis... And if you have a good bookshop closeby you may just be able to get it by Halloween or the Day of the Dead....
Winner of the 2010 Bram Stoker Award for Best Anthology!
Darkly thrilling, these twenty new ghost stories have all the chills and power of traditional ghost stories, but each tale is a unique retelling of an urban legend from the world over.
Multiple award-winning editor Ellen Datlow and award-nominated author and editor Nick Mamatas recruited Jeffrey Ford, Ramsey Campbell, Joe R. Lansdale, Caitlin Kiernan, Catherynne M. Valente, Kit Reed, Ekaterina Sedia, and thirteen other fine writers to create stories unlike any they've written before. Tales to make readers shiver with fear, jump at noises in the night, keep the lights on.
These twenty nightmares, brought together by two renowned editors of the dark fantastic, are delightful visions sure to send shivers down the spines of horror readers.
