Book Review - The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror 20

Description: An anthology of the years best short horror fiction.
It's a good book for discovering new authors. The stories range from ghost stories to monsters to the weird and quirky. My personal favourites were:

Under Fog by Tanith Lee - A look at the dark secrets harboured by a community struggling to survive.

The New York Times at Special Bargain Rates by Stephen King - King always sucks you into his characters.

The Beginnings of Sorrow by Pinckney Benedict - Unusual story of change and living with fear.

The Place of Waiting by Brian Lumley - I'd avoided reading Lumley up until now, this story looks at death, grief and the afterlife. Left me with a sense of unease.

Rating: 3/5
