In a second distinguished collection of twenty superb, sublimely dark tales written especially for this volume, such acknowledged contemporary masters of horror fiction as Barbara Hambly, John Farris, James Sallis, Steve Niles, Tananarive Due, L.

Throughout, the editors -- Del Howison (co-owner of Dark Delicacies) and leading horror anthologist Jeff Gelb -- present perfectly crafted, freshly original horror-fiction fare that is as terrifying as it is chillingly delicious.
