The Best Horror of the Year. Vol. 3

Review from "Library Journal":
The Best Horror of the Year. Vol. 3. Night Shade. 2011. c.384p. ed. by Ellen Datlow. ISBN 9781597802178. pap. $15.99. HORROR

A profusion of magpies portends ominous events in Tanith Lee's doomsday story "Black and White Sky," while in Laird Barron's "—30—," a pair of wildlife experts find themselves inexplicably altered by their research. Award-winning editor Datlow (Lovecraft Unbound) lends her expertise to this collection of top-notch tales of dark fantasy chosen from a variety of sources, including magazines, webzines, single-author collections, literary journals, and other anthologies. VERDICT From subtle psychological suspense to graphic violence, this collection of tales by authors like Richard Christian Matheson, Catherynne M. Valente, and John Langan provides a broad spectrum of styles sure to please most fans of the genre.
