Coming in September: Stephen Jones' A Book of Horrors

Maybe this news has been out there for a while, but I've just found out that Stephen Jones, editor of The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror and all-around great anthologist, has a new antho coming out this fall.  Titled A Book of Horrors, it contains original stories by some of the major writers of a number of different types of horror and dark fantasy.  Stephen King, Caitlín R. Kiernan, Angela Slatter, Dennis Etchison, Ramsey Campbell, Robert Shearman, Reggie Oliver... well, I could just as well list the entire table of contents.  To see that, and the book's striking cover art, click here.  I don't buy many anthologies anymore-- single-author collections provide a more satisfying experience-- but this one is definitely going on my list.

Edit: and Jones also has a ghost story anthology forthcoming. It looks like a mix of reprints and originals, and has an equally distinguished TOC.  This time, click here.
