Pestilence, floods, war, social upheaval, drug-related crime, wicked leaders, birth defects, conspiracies, corruption, even visions of death-dealing aliens--this superb anthology is a timely reminder that destructive forces and fantasies of destruction are not just a millennial phenomenon; they've been with us all along. Douglas Winter writes in the afterword: "I chose the writers whose words had moved me, surprised me, remained vibrant in a time of repetition and glut. I wanted assurance that the fiction nominally known as 'horror' would survive into the twenty-first century; and I wanted Revelations to offer that reassurance to readers." These 11 long tales--one for each decade, plus a frame story--succeed brilliantly in doing so. The writers are Clive Barker, Joe R. Lansdale, David Morrell, F. Paul Wilson, Poppy Z. Brite, Christa Faust, Charles Grant, Whitley Strieber, Elizabeth Massie, Richard Christian Matheson, David J. Schow, Craig Spector, and Ramsey Campbell.About the Author:
