"As always, Datlow delivers a top-notch anthology..."

From Publishers Weekly:

The Best Horror of the Year, Vol. 3

Edited by Ellen Datlow. Night Shade (www.nightshadebooks.com), $15.99 trade paper (384p) ISBN 978-1-59780-217-8

In the third volume of this annual series, famed editor Datlow brings together 17 stories published in 2010 in a variety of sources both popular and obscure. In Cody Goodfellow's "At the Riding School," a veterinarian makes a strange house call at a girls' school. Catherynne M. Valente's "The Days of Flaming Motorcycles," one of several zombie stories, sketches the life of the only living woman among the undead horde. John Langan uses self-conscious narrative to twist the werewolf story in "The Revel." The usual lists of honorable mentions and award-winners and a thoughtful assessment of the field will encourage readers to seek out the year's other notable horror stories. As always, Datlow delivers a top-notch anthology with a nice balance of new and established writers. (July)

You bet she does! !! !! ! Congrats to Ellen to all the writers (and Night Shade)! !! I am vEry proud (and humbled) to be included in this wonderful volume! !!
