The anthology market these days is awash with small, themed works focused on very specific markets, like vampire erotica and tales of werewolves, or it features best of the year reprints. It has been years since anyone has dared to bring out a broad-reaching anthology that seeks to define the current state of the genre with all original tales from both masters and hot new writers.

From the Back Cover:

Dark Visions From Around the Globe!

"We set out to illustrate how vast and international the scope of the genre has become and the vitality of writing to be found in it as the new century begins. To that end, each editor solicited a third of this volume's contents in his own country of residence―Ramsey Campbell in Great Britain, Jack Dann in Australia, and Dennis Etchison in the United States. Our intention was to present the familiar and the experimental, the traditional and the avant-garde, the quiet and the vividly shocking, in a field whose boundaries are no longer rigidly defined and where literary values coexist with the leading edge of popular culture. There is no need for a narrow, constricted theme to inhibit the imagination, for dark fantasy is truly an international fiction without limits." --from the Introduction

About the Author:

Jack Dann has written or edited over fifty books, including the international bestseller The Memory Cathedral, which is published in over ten languages and was #1 on The Age Bestseller list. The San Francisco Chronicle called it "A grand accomplishment," Kirkus Reviews thought it was "An impressive accomplishment," and True Review said, "Read this important novel, be challenged by it; you literally haven't seen anything like it." His novel The Silent has been compared to Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn; Library Journal chose it as one of their 'Hot Picks' and wrote: "This is narrative storytelling at its best-so highly charged emotionally as to constitute a kind of poetry from hell. Most emphatically recommended."

Dann's work has been compared to Jorge Luis Borges, Roald Dahl, Lewis Carroll, Castaneda, J. G. Ballard, Philip K. Dick, and Mark Twain. He is a recipient of the Nebula Award, the World Fantasy Award, the Australian Aurealis Award (twice), the Ditmar Award (twice), and the Premios Gilgames de Narrativa Fantastica award. He has also been honoured by the Mark Twain Society (Esteemed Knight). His novel, Bad Medicine (retitled Counting Coup in the US), has been described by The Courier Mail as "perhaps the best road novel since the Easy Rider Days." His latest book is the retrospective short story collection Jubilee, which The West Australian called "a celebration of the talent of a remarkable storyteller." He is also the co-editor of the groundbreaking anthology of Australian stories, Dreaming Down-Under, which won the World Fantasy Award in 1999.

Jack Dann lives in Melbourne, Australia and "commutes" back and forth to Los Angeles and New York.

Ramsey Campbell is described in the Oxford Companion to English Literature as "Britain's most respected living horror writer." He has won more awards than any other writer in the field. He lives on Merseyside with his wife, Jenny.

Dennis Etchison has been called "the most original living horror writer in America." His writing has won both the World Fantasy Award and the British Fantasy Award. He is also the editor of The Museum of Horrors, which won the World Fantasy Award. He has written screenplays for John Carpenter and Dario Argento as well as serving time as a staff writer for HBO's original series, The Hitchhiker. He lives in Los Angeles.
